|5/3/18 Maple Leaf neighborhood|
Although this architectural style is common in Seattle as a whole, we don’t see too many Dutch Colonials in Maple Leaf. Amidst a long block of small, plain, nondescript houses on Northeast 85th, this one stands handsome, well-kept and surrounded by green.
I didn’t know the name of this style until I sketched it. Curious about what I was doing, a friendly contractor working inside emerged. When I showed him some previous sketches of neighborhood houses and said I was interested in the variety of architecture, he immediately told me what style I was sketching.
