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

The cross gable roof and spindlework detailing at the wrap-around porch identify this small structure as an example of Queen Anne -- Cottage design.

This house was built in 1892 according to the King County Property Record Card; however, the King County GIS Center Property Report indicates that the structure was built in 1900 (it should be noted that the computer database from which the latter date is drawn cannot record a construction date earlier than 1900).

The structure could not be adequately surveyed because it is almost impossible to observe from the street. There is an early addition at the back end of the structure. The structure was clad for a time after the late 1950s with composition "brick veneer" siding but appears to have been returned to its original appearance.
