Building History

The Seattle architectural firm of Bebb and Mendel designed this substantial residence for Charles H. Cobb, c. 1908. Cobb was President of the Ebey Logging Company in 1910, and resided at 1409 East Aloha Street at that time.

Building Notes

On the first floor, one entered the Cobb Residence from underneath a projecting proch. It had a large, central entrance and stair hall off of which opened five rooms. A reception room was situated on the first floor's southwest corner, and had an alcove projecting west. Above this stood a library (with fireplace) and to the south was the living room which faced the back yard. Moving east stood a back stair and the kitchen. The kitchen had its own rear entry and a kitchen pantry and butler's pantry.

On the upper floor, a stair hall, the same size as that of the entry hall below, led to a sewing room (on the southwest corner), the master bedroom suite, servant's bedroom on the southeast corner, large bathroom and a another bedroom on the northeast corner. The master suite included its own bathroom, large adjoining room (perhaps for separate beds) and a walk-in closet.
