Summary for 2722 BROADWAY AVE / Parcel ID 1959700775 / Inv # 0

Historic Name: Common Name:
Style: Queen Anne - Eclectic, Tudor Neighborhood:
Built By: Year Built: 1904
 
Significance
This is a good example of the transition from the agitated asymmetry of the Queen Anne style and the less agitated Shingle style to early 20th Century eclecticism. In this case, the design anticipates Tudor revival work. The structure retains a high degree of integrity.

This is one of approximately 2,200 houses that are still extant out of more than 5,000 that were built by the end of 1906 in Seattle’s Central Area, Eastlake, First Hill, Leschi, Madison Park, Madrona, and North Capitol Hill neighborhoods.

A complete permit history and record of ownership and occupation have not yet been prepared for this property; however, the present owner appears to have acquired the house in 1999.

Appearance
This is a two-and-a-half story, stucco and half-timber clad, wood frame single-family residence on a concrete foundation, over a full basement.

The combination of moderately and steeply sloped roofs, including prominent, steeply pitched front facing cross gables, all with moderate overhangs, the wide barge boards, the stucco and decorative half-timbering at the upper story walls, and the tall relatively narrow casement windows with multiple panes, are features associated with the Tudor variant of early 20th century eclecticism.

The house was built in 1904 (King County GIS Center Property Report, accessed March 6,, 2008; the King County Property Record Card gives the date as 1909). The King County Property Record Card suggests that a minor remodel was undertaken in 1910. There appears to be a hip roofed second story addition at the rear. The landscaping appears to be of much more recent heritage than the house.
