Dr. Frederick Bentley (born c. 1873 in IL), a dentist, and his wife Harriet (born c. 1875 in PA) built this large, Colonial Revival house in Capitol Hill on fashionable Federal Avenue in 1914. They had a previous house at 145 39th Avenue in the Madrona Neighborhood of Seattle, WA. In 1920, Bentley had paid off the residence.

The wood-frame Bentley House #2 had a rectangular form covered by a gable roof and brick facing. Architect Joseph S. Cote (1874-1957) used a standard Georgian Colonial hall-parlor plan, with a central entry hall/main stair flanked by a large living room on one side and the dining room, kitchen, pantry and garage on the other. An enclosed sun porch projected off the living room.
