Historic Name: Common Name:
Style: Colonial - Colonial Revival Neighborhood: Queen Anne
Built By: Year Built: 1922

This Colonial Revival-style single-family residence is in the Uptown neighborhood.


Constructed ca. 1922, this one-and-a-half-story single-family residence stands at the northeast corner of the intersection of Aloha Street and Sixth Avenue N. The site slopes steeply down from north to south and from west to east. Sidewalks extend along the south and west sides with planting strips. A driveway runs along the north side of the house.

A front gable roof with asphalt composition shingles shelters interior spaces. A gable roof dormer projects off the south roof slope. A front gable roof projects out over the front entrance stoop. The roof features enclosed eave and gable overhangs with barge boards at the gable ends. A gutter extends along the bottom edge of the roof slopes. An internal brick chimney with simple corbeling at the cap services the building.

A concrete foundation supports the platform frame structure. Brick veneer clads the building with a soldier course along the bottom of the first story. The daylight basement portion along the south side of the building features a thin parge coating. Clapboard clads the dormer with a decorative molding across the top of the two windows. An oriel window projects on the south facade.

Windows feature wood brick molding and masonry sills (concrete or similar, painted).

The front stoop consists of a concrete base, railings, and stairs, with brick piers supporting a gable roof. Clapboard clads the gable end. The stoop features a wood soffit with a central light fixture. A small, enclosed, shed roof stoop projects off the rear of the house. The enclosure features multi-lite wood sash casement windows. A flight of concrete stairs lead up to the stoop from the sidewalk. A garage door on the south side of the house provides access to the basement garage.

Alterations include replacing all windows with vinyl units and modifying the original configuration. The foundation was cut on the south facade to provide a recessed personnel doorway for access to the basement level. The front stoop has lost the original parge coating. The flush-panel garage door replaced the original pair of six-lite over a single recessed panel, side-hung garage doors. Alterations also enclosed the soffits and modified the barge board ends.
