This is an American Foursquare scheme that was originally characterized with Queen Anne -- Free Classic detailing.

This house was built in 1905 according to both the King County Property Record Card and the King County GIS Center Property Report. The latter report indicates that the house was remodeled in 2006; however, the extent of the work undertaken at that time is not indicated.

A back porch appears to have been added. Almost all of the original windows have been replaced in their existing openings with vinyl units of similar but not identical configuration. Some new window openings have been added at the upper level south elevation. The foundation appears to have been replaced or clad with stucco. The basement was likely altered.
