Historic Name: Unknown Common Name:
Style: Vernacular Neighborhood: South Park
Built By: Year Built: 1905
In the opinion of the survey, this property is located in a potential historic districe (National and/or local).
This house retains enough integrity to offer us information about the Queen Anne style as intepreted in South Park. It and its setting contribute to the pastoral streetscape and they are significant for their associations with the small farming and orchard activities that characterize early South Park. William L. Nutter with Seattle Ice Company lived here in 1916. L. S. Tepley acquired the property in 1926.
This house is a rather elegant vernacular Queen Anne house that bears strong similarities in material and detail to 9115 S 7th Ave. It has spindle work and decorative shingles in the front facing gable and similar finials decorate the eave tips. This house has a hipped, three sided bay to the front and a shed roof porch to the north. The porch roof is created by an interesting extension of the steeply piteched gable roof. Asbestos shingles cover the original narrow beveled siding.
