Description:
This wood frame "double dwelling" is composed in a neo-classical manner. Its two story height is capped by a deeply recessed classic pediment. A rounded bay window - an important element in maximizing daylight - rises two stories, ending under the cornice.

Historic Seattle’s Role:

This unusual double house was constructed in 1902 as a personal residence for businessman William B. Phillips and his parents. A local craftsman, John M. Hester, built the house using regional materials. Purchased by Historic Seattle in 1992, a complete renovation created 11 units of affordable housing in 1993. The property is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Current and Future Uses:

Historic Seattle maintains ownership of the Phillips House which continues to provide affordable rental units.
