King County GIS Center Property Report (; accessed September 10, 2008)

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

This house was built in a transitional period and initially combined a late Queen Anne era roof (featuring a relatively steep slope, pented gables, and enclosed soffits) and a Queen Anne style cottage window near the entry with banded windows and inset porch details at the front elevation more typical of the Craftsman style.

This house was built in 1906 according to both the King County Property Record Card and the King County GIS Center Property Report. The King County GIS Center Property Report records that the house was remodeled in 1999; however, the extent of the work undertaken at that time is not indicated.

The original inset front entry porch was enclosed at some point after 1945, probably in the course of a recent remodel. A new dormer has been added behind the original dormer at each of the two side elevations. A new, projecting front porch with gable roof and new entry stairs has been added. The original half basement was expanded to a full basement at some point between 1937 and the 1970s. The basement garage appears to be a recent addition.
Many of the windows appear to have been replaced in kind and the window casings have been modified. There are new openings at the altered entry and added dormers. The original cladding was covered or replaced with imitation brick veneer siding for a period beginning after the Second World War; however, the cladding system has since been returned to something approaching its original appearance (although modified to accommodate recent alterations and additions).
