This is a two-and-a-half story, clapboard clad, wood frame single-family residence on a concrete foundation, over a full basement. The porch appears to be built on a post and beam foundation. The essentially rectangular plan is capped by a hip roof with extensive overhangs, open soffits, and exposed rafter tails.

The windows and doors are characterized by patterns and details customarily associated with late Queen Anne and early twentieth century design work. The porch does not wrap around the structure but does extend beyond the north end of the west (entry) elevation in a manner suggestive of Queen Anne design. The built-up piers at the front porch are typical of early twentieth century architecture, but the baluster railings between the piers are more typical of Queen Anne -- Free Classic work. The wide overhangs with exposed rafter tails are a signature feature of the Craftsman style.

This house was built in 1905 according to the King County Property Record Card and the King County GIS Center Property Report.

The east elevation appears to have been altered, though the degree of change is difficult to assess from the public right-of-way. Some of the windows and some of the siding may have been refurbished. The ends of the rafter tails are now hidden by added gutters, giving the foursquare structure a more Prairie style appearance.
