Historic Name: Common Name:
Style: Queen Anne - Cottage Neighborhood: Central Area
Built By: Year Built: 1902
This is an example of a simple bungalow scheme with Queen Anne detailing. The structure’s design integrity has been compromised by extensive window replacement and significant alterations to the detailing of the porch.

This is one of approximately 2,200 houses that are still extant out of more than 5,000 that were built by the end of 1906 in Seattle’s Central Area, Eastlake, First Hill, Leschi, Madison Park, Madrona, and North Capitol Hill neighborhoods. The structure is located in a portion of the Central Area also known as the East Madison district.

A complete permit history, and a complete record of ownership and occupation have not yet been prepared for this property.

King County Property Record Card (c. 1938-1972) Washington State Archives

This is a one story, shingle clad, wood frame single-family residence on a post and pier foundation, with no basement. The rectangular plan is capped by a hip roof with an intersecting, front facing gable, moderate overhangs, and enclosed soffits. The partial width projecting porch is capped by a flat (or shallow shed) roof.

The windows and doors are characterized by patterns and details customarily associated with Queen Anne cottage architecture.

This house was built in 1902 according to both the King County Property Record Card and the King County GIS Center Property Report.

Most of the original windows have been replaced with aluminum units and one of the windows openings appears to have been filled. The siding has been patched but retains it original character, except at the porch where the shingle clad railings have been removed and the base has been clad with a panel material (probably T1-11). The original solid, shingle clad porch railings and the partial height, built-up, square post supporting the porch roof have been replaced by a system of turned posts and simple wood baluster railings.
