This house, located on Queen Anne Boulevard, is a good and relatively large example of a "builder's Tudor," one of the most popular styles in Seattle in the 1920s. They have characteristics of the Tudor style such as steep gable roofs, leaded windows and half-timbering, but on a relatively modest scale. It was built in 1916, but no information is available about its original owner or builder. It was purchased in the 1950s by Richard C. Peterson, a salesman, and his wife Bonnie. They lived here for more than twenty years, until the current owner bought the house in the 1970s.
This large Tudor Revival house has a side gable form, with twin gabled dormers on the front (north) façade. The gables have brackets and carved bargeboards. The entry porch, in the center, is relatively small, projecting out about five feet; its two tapered posts rest on brick piers. A small open deck tops the porch. To the south of the entry is a three-sided hip-roofed hanging bay. To the north, at the corner of the house, is an octagonal bay that extends below grade with the basement windows visible. Cladding is red brick with stucco and half-timbering on the second floor. Windows are predominantly four-over-one leaded sash. The south elevation has a sun porch with two-over-one sash; the deck on top of the porch is reached through a pair of eight-light French doors. There is a detached half-timbered garage at the northeast corner of the lot.
