Summary for 1128 25TH AVE / Parcel ID 7217400525 / Inv # 0

Historic Name: Common Name:
Style: Queen Anne, Vernacular Neighborhood: Central Area
Built By: Year Built: 1904
This is an example of some limited Queen Anne detailing applied to a design utilizing one of the national folk housing typologies popular throughout the country in the last half of the nineteenth century. The structure’s design integrity has been somewhat compromised by modifications to some of the details.

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 a complete record of ownership and occupation have not yet been prepared for this property.


King County GIS Center Property Report (; accessed August 19, 2008)

King County Property Record Card (c. 1938-1972) Washington State Archives

This is a one-and-a-half story, clapboard and shingle clad, wood frame single-family residence. Although originally built on a post and beam foundation, the Assessor's records indicate that the structure has had a full basement since at least 1957, suggesting that a concrete foundation was added at some point after 1937. The porch may still be built on a post and beam foundation. The rectangular plan is capped by a gable roof with moderate overhangs and enclosed soffits. A hip roof, with a pediment to mark the entry protects the full width front porch.

This house was built in 1904 according to both the King County Property Record Card and the King County GIS Center
Property Report.

It appears a basement was added to structure at some point between 1937 and 1957. An early addition at the rear may have been expanded recently. Some of the windows may have been refurbished or replaced in kind. Screens have been added to several of the window openings. The window casings have been modified more than once over the life of the building. The piers and columns that originally supported the entry porch roof appear to have been replaced with similar, but not identical, built-up piers. An additional built-up pier, matching the other replacement piers, has been added; the porch railing appears to have been rebuilt.
