This is a transitional design combining elements of early twentieth century work, including the exposed rafter tails of the Craftsman style and the moderately sloped, overhanging hip roofs and large built-up porch piers of the Prairie style, with details, such as the fully inset porch and projecting corner window, more often associated with the "Seattle Box," a locally popular version of turn-of-the-century foursquare architecture.

This house was built in 1906 according to both the King County Property Record Card and the King County GIS Center Property Report.

The rafter tails, which were originally exposed, are now partially hidden by added facias and gutters. The entry stair sidewalls no longer project above the level of the stairs and new wood railings have been added.
