Summary for 2618 Eastlake AVE / Parcel ID 1959700110 / Inv # EA011

Historic Name: none Common Name: Patricia Brennan, Architects
Style: Arts & Crafts - Craftsman Neighborhood: Eastlake
Built By: Year Built: 1921
 
Significance
In the opinion of the survey, this property appears to meet the criteria of the Seattle Landmarks Preservation Ordinance.
This is one of a pair of detailed and intact Craftsman bungalows in the Eastlake commercial district. Their conversion to commercial use in recent years reflects the changing character of the street, which had numerous houses and apartment buildings, now being replaced by office structures. Eastlake Avenue was an important streetcar route, connecting downtown to the University District, first over the old Latona Bridge and later over the University Bridge, which was completed in 1919. This house, built in 1921, a few years after its neighbor at 2608 Eastlake, is notable for its clinker brick wall, prominent dormer and intact Craftsman details.
 
Appearance
This 1-1/2 story shingled bungalow has a side gabled roof sheltering a deeply recessed, full-width porch. A wall of clinker brick forms the front of the porch and flanks the wide front stairs. Battered wood piers at the corners of the porch extend from the brick wall to support the roof. The west (front) elavation has a large gabled dormer with a row of four multipaned casement windows in a Craftsman style. The dormer has three large decorative wood brackets and extended rafter tails. The roof eaves along the front and back also have extended rafter tails. The front door, at the north end of the porch, is original wood. To the south is a large three-part window onto the porch, with a large center section flanked by two narrower multipaned sections. Windows elsewhere are casement of double-hung sash.
