The Danson-Chase House is a fine example of the Tudor Revival style with English cottage "Storybook" elements including one and one-half story side-gable house form, asymmetrical design, steeply pitched roof, multiple prominent front-facing gables, massive brick chimney, recessed front entrance, multi-paned windows, and textured "raked" brick veneer. The property was listed in 1997 on the National Register of Historic Places as a contributing resource of the Rockwood National Register Historic District, one of Spokane’s most historically and architecturally prominent residential neighborhoods. The house was built for noted Spokane attorney Robert J. Danson and his wife Ethel E. Danson, who owned it for more than twenty years. Robert Danson founded and organized at least four law firms in Spokane and was noted not only for his work in courts, but for his resourcefulness and capable management of business interests and investments.

The Danson-Chase House is a contributing property in the Rockwood Historic District, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places 4/14/1997.
