The exposed rafter tails of the original structure, together with the wide barge boards supported by beam extensions, the shed roofed bay at the east elevation, and the inset porch with heavy, built-up piers and timber porch rail are typical of the Craftsman style. The banded casement windows at the upper story gables and at the dormer are more typical of Prairie work than of the Craftsman style, although muntins of the casement window are arranged in a typical Craftsman pattern, and banded windows in general are a feature of several early twentieth century styles.

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

The basement garage and the driveway appear to have been added at an early date. The west wall appears to have been altered at the basement level. The garage door was replaced at some point after 1937. Awnings have been added at several of the window openings. The upper level casements appear to be original but may have been replaced in kind. The basement level windows may have been added in the 1930s. The original cladding at the west elevation appears to have been covered or replaced with aluminum siding. The soffits appear to have been enclosed with vented metal panels. The rafter tails are no longer visible. Metal railings have been added at the entry steps.
