Appearance
The windows and doors exhibit patterns and details associated with Queen Anne architecture. The projecting wall surfaces in the peaks of the gables, and the large front facing, gambrel roofed dormer are suggestive of Shingle style work, though shingles are nowhere in evidence.

This house was built in 1905 according to both the King County Property Record Card and the King County GIS Center Property Report. According to the King County Property Record Card, the house was remodeled in 1926; however, the extent of the work undertaken at that time is not indicated.

There appear to have been some very minor changes at the back end of the structure.
