Significance
In the opinion of the survey, this property is located in a potential historic districe (National and/or local).
This house is one of 22 "modern residences" that comprised the 1901 Columbia Terrace development. This block of rather eccentric and eclectic vernacular houses, interpreted in various romantic motifs, was developed by C. T. Smith and A.S. Kerry (Kerry Lumber Company) and designed by Robertson and Blackwell Architects. It is an excellent, relatively intact example of an early 20th century speculative housing development and as such enhances our knowledge of vernacular architecture and residential development in Seattle. This house is important as part of that unit and the historic streetscape it creates.
 
Appearance
This two story house has a hipped roof with a gable dormer that cuts through the fa├žade eave. The full width porch has been enclosed.
