Originally, the Ethel House was a one-story, hipped-roof residence clad in shingles, built in the late 1930s-early 1940s. It had a very simple front fenestration, with a door on one side with three double-hung windows--the middle being smaller than the other two--lined up beside it.

Seattle architect Paul Hayden Kirk (1914-1995) remodeled this existing house for a retired couple in 1954; Kirk added a new kitchen, dining area, living room, and deck that flowed into a garden. Blair Kirk, Paul's brother, served as the building contractor.
