This house embodies the distinctive characteristics of an American Foursquare form embellished with late Victorian neoclassical details. It is important because it enhances our knowledge of vernacular architecture and residential development in Seattle and because it and its setting contribute to the streetscape. The house appears on the 1904-1905 Sanborn Map. A. Rolstrand acquired the property in October of 1918.
This two story frame house is a traditional Foursquare form with an uncharacteristically low hipped roof. IT is embellished with late Victorian neoclassical elements; most prominently a pedimented entrance porch supported by pairs of slender classical columns. A carved Adamesque garland decorates the pediment. A full height bay with stained glass transom windows is capped by a false gable. Cased corner joints create pilasters.
