Deette McAuslan (1892-1979) married building contractor, Grant Smith, in 1923, only four months before his death. She erected this residence three years later to accommodate her mother, elder sister, and two children. (She subsequently elected not to take the children in.) Grant Smith's construction firm built this Georgian house for her. She married Charles E. Stuart in 1931, and, toward the end of her life, donated the dwelling to the Seattle Opera Association. The association, in turn, sold the property in 1975 to Maurice C. Balcom. The City of Seattle lists the building officially on its list of landmarks as the "Stuart-Balcom House."
