Looks like it was half of a “development” – reverse image version to the right – great triple dormer!
Ok, I have to ask.
Did you two know the house by looking at it, or did you discover it by searching? Because, honestly, I clicked through expecting to see about a mile of debate and was shocked to see a ‘thunk. here ya go’ answer. =D
So the site isn’t dead!
Interesting – they added the garage sometime after it was built, (which I supposed would make sense given the build date.) Beautiful house.
I’m also curious to know how this was figured out so quickly.
I’m a few days late to this party, but I knew immediately since I live one block away!
Also, there are a lot of houses in this part of Capitol Hill that have that 3-pyramid style roof. I assume they were all designed by the same architect?
I’m impressed! I collect vintage Seattle postcards on eBay and when come across pictures of houses I often wish I could figure out where the house was/is.
What a shame so much of the original detailing was lost between when the assessors office photo was taken and when the street views were taken in 2008.
Maybe they had to make repairs and couldn’t afford to replicate the original details? Or maybe they made the changes because they liked it better this way.
Oh well. That’s how it goes, I guess.
Maybe putting this picture online will help someone restore the exterior someday. Or maybe not. But thanks for sharing so we can see what it used to look like.
p.s. is there a way to have current photos posted here so we can see what it looks like now? Hopefully no more details have been lost, but…
Sorry it took me a few days to get back to you.
I tried to search based on the house number, but soon got stuck trying to find a good search engine. Eventually I thought of another forum that might be of some help, so I posted it there and someone found it using the King County website.
Another example of a good use for crowd sourcing
2 groups on Facebook-”Hillers” and “I Grew Up on Capitol Hill” made up of hill veterans would be a good source

I agree, this is an awsome house. http://www.slovak-translator.com
certainly like your web-site but you have to test the spelling on several of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very troublesome to tell the truth nevertheless I’ll surely come again again.
Great info and interestingly written. Keep up the superb stuff!
