Summary for 350 16th AVE / Parcel ID 4232401288 / Inv #

Historic Name: McKillop, D. P., Residence Common Name:
Style: Queen Anne - Free Classic Neighborhood: Capitol Hill
Built By: Year Built: 1904
 
Significance
In the opinion of the survey, this property appears to meet the criteria of the Seattle Landmarks Preservation Ordinance.
This is an intact example of a simple vernacular Queen Anne style house, a form and style that were popular at the end of the 19th century. This one was built in 1904 (permit #26583), just a block from the streetcar line that had recently begun on 15th Avenue to serve the booming Capitol Hill additions. Little else is known about its history, but the longest-term owner was D. P. McKillop. This house is notable for its style, age and degree of original integrity.
 
Appearance
This house has a 2-story front gabled section, with a hipped section in the rear; each is about 20 feet deep. The rear section projects four feet on each side. The entry is toward the rear on the south side, with a recessed porch along the side of the house. Cladding is clapboard with shingles in the gable end and rustic siding below the first story windows. The front gabled section, facing the street, has a square bay on the first story, with three windows with diamond-pane leaded glass n the upper sections. Above this window is a delicate frieze of floral garlands. The second-story bay flares out over the lower one, with a row of dentils along the bottom. Other windows are primarily one-over-one sash with wide wood surrounds, but there is a diamond-shaped window on the south side. The recessed porch on the north side of the house has several wood steps and slender columns. There is a secondary entry on the south side, and windows in the basement level.
