This is a one story, clapboard and shingle clad, wood frame single-family residence on a concrete foundation. There is no basement.
The structure’s moderately sloped hip roof annd the asymmetrically placed, front facing, cross gable identify it as a Queen Ann Cottage.
The decorative shingles in the pent-enclosed gable, the enclosed soffits, the recessed, half-width porch, the window bay, the simple door and window surrounds, the use of double-hung windows with undivided sashes of equal size, and the characteristic Queen Anne "cottage" window consisting of a shallow rectangular upper component with a regular diamond pattern of divided lights over a much larger undivided component, are typical elements of the Queen Anne style.
A group of small square piers -- roof-supporting elements which once stood on a pedestal incorporated into the porch railing -- lent the original house a slightly “free classic” flavor. However, this group of piers has been replaced by a light steel latticework element. A vent has replaced the front gable window, and two small glazed openings at the north side elevation, as well as the small window that opens onto the porch, have replaced much taller double-hung windows at those locations. The back porch appears to have been enclosed
The house was built in 1904 (King County Property Record Card; King County GIS Center Property Report, accessed July 29, 2008).
