This is a good example of a “builder’s Tudor,” the modest houses that were among the most popular in Seattle during the 1920s. It has strong Tudor details, such as brick cladding, a steep gable roof and lattice windows, but on a modest scale. This example is one of the last, dating from 1931; when construction resumed in the 1950s, the Tudor style was no longer popular. Queen Anne is particularly rich in this style; the house next door, at 2815 10th Place West, and others in the immediate vicinity, are similar to this one. The garage, immediately to the south of the front door, appears to have its original folding doors. This house has the distinction of apparently having been in the same family for more than sixty years. It was purchased in 1936 by Peter Duplica, and is now owned by John Duplica.
This small Tudor house has a steep side gable roof and red brick cladding. The building corners and the door and window openings are outlined in buff brick. The arched entry is near the center of the main façade, set within a steep assymetrical gable. The entry has a fanlight with leaded glass and is flanked by two narrow leaded glass windows; a narrow window in the gable end is similar. Virtually all the house's windows have leaded glass. To the north of the entry is a large three-part window with large fixed-pane sash flanked by two narrow eight-light windows. Above is a twin gable stucco-clad dormer with half-timbering; it has three six-over-one windows. Similar windows are on the other elevations, singly or in pairs. On the south of the main facade, on the same level, is the garage, with original folding doors. The west, or rear, elevation has a large shingle-clad shed dormer with two nine-over-one and one diamond paned window.
