The complex hip roof with at least one intersecting pented gable, the numerous bays, the hint of an octagonal tower at the northwest corner, and the distinctive curvilinear muntin patterns at several of the windows (including some cottage style windows) are all typical of the Queen Anne style. The the deep frieze, the modillions at the soffits, some elliptical windows at the street elevation, and the Tuscan piers at the entry porch give the structure a Free Classic flavor, although the heavy character of the partial height piers and the solid porch railings supporting them also suggest Arts & Crafts sensibilities.

This structure was built in 1906 according to both the King County Property Record Card and the King County GIS Center Property Report. The King County Property Record Card indicates that the house was remodeled in 1916; however, the extent of the work undertaken at that time is not reported.

This building has functioned as a duplex since at least 1937. The entire structure appears to have been lifted at an early date to accommodate a basement remodel. An early addition at the back of the structure has been altered to appear more consistent with the character of the rest of the building at some point since 1937. Both the windows and the siding appear to have been refurbished.
