This is a good example of late 19th/early 20th century vernacular architecture. It contributes to our knowledge of the architectural and residential development of Seattle.
This is a well preserved local interpretation of the Queen Anne style, which is actually an elaborated traditional gable front house form embellished with Queen Anne and neoclassical details. An el-shaped porch wraps the southeast corner of the house which is cutaway to form a three sided bay under the porch. The porch is supported by classical round columns. The façade is further decorated by a shallow bay window projection on the first floor and decorative wood shingles in the gable. Windows have decorative multipane over one double hung wooden sashes and frames. There is a shallow full height gable projection to the south.
