This is a one-and-a-half story, clapboard and shingle clad, wood frame single-family residence on a concrete foundation, over a full basement.
The overall composition of this structure is characterized by angularity, verticality, and a degree of asymmetry, all characteristic associated with the Stick style variant of Queen Anne work. The roof is composed of steep intersecting gables and features deep overhanging eaves with exposed rafter tails and decorative trusses at the apex of the gables, all typical Stick style elements, though characteristic features of the Craftsman style as well.
The extensive use of shingle siding above the second floor level is suggestive of the Shingle style, but the verticality of the façade, and the rectangular bay in the street facade, the oriel at the north side stair landings, the small projecting roofs, and the other trim elements that interrupt the shingle surfaces give the house a more agitated, Queen Anne appearance.
The open but rectilinear stickwork of the numerous window boxes, the wide bargeboards supported by timber knee braces, the even larger timber braces supporting the hipped roof projecting over the entry stairs, and the square pier marking the outside corner of the recessed entry porch, all suggest the emerging Craftsman style.
Most of the original double-hung windows were relatively wide units that featured a small upper sash over a larger undivided lower sash. These windows occur singly or, les often, in pairs, as is customary in the many variants of Queen Anne work, but are not banded together in larger groups as would be typical of many Craftsman style structures. Several of the windows have been replaced. The new windows are similar in proportions to the original windows, but feature false divided lights in their upper sashes.
The gable-capped rectangular tower near the southwest corner of the structure appears to be an addition. There appears to be a single story addition at the southwest corner of the structure as well, although at least a portion of the low structure located at the back of the house is an early addition or an original back porch.
The house was built in 1906 (King County Property Record Card; King County GIS Center Property Report, accessed July 29, 2008).
