Despite the vegetation that makes this house difficult to see clearly, it is an imposing example of an Arts and Crafts Foursquare, clad with clinker brick and stucco and with a two-story porch to enjoy the view. It was built in 1910, but no building permit is available so that the architect or builder is not known. It was owned by Gaetan Zucco from 1936 until 1960, and by Victor Cook from 1972 until 2003. This street, 22nd Avenue East, is in Capitol Hill Division 6, at the eastern edge of Capitol Hill and is the last of the plats of James Moore, the original developer of the neighborhood. As the topography slopes steeply down to the east, this street enjoys spectacular views, and the streets are lined with unusually fine homes.

The house has a hipped roof with twin gable dormers in the front and gabled dormers on the sides. The roof has wide eaves with flat brackets, while the dormers have knee brackets. Cladding is heavy gray stucco on the upper levels, while the porch and piers are clinker brick. The two-story porch extends the full width of the front (east) fa├žade; both levels have wide bracketed eaves. The substantial wood door has wide sidelights of beveled glass. The dormers have three diamond-paned windows, while other windows are primarily one-over-one double-hung sash.
