Historic Properties of Spokane
The Hanauer-Cook House is an eclectic interpretation of the Queen Anne tradition with Free Classic Queen Anne style and Tudor Revival influence. The property covers three lots and commands a panoramic view of downtown from a prominent position atop a steep hillside site at the southeast corner of West Sixth Avenue and South Jefferson Street on Spokane’s lower South Hill. The large two-story, house is a manifestation of typical Queen Anne style features which include an irregular hip roof with lower cross gables, an irregular footprint with both bowed and box bays, a brick and basalt rock foundation, a full-width covered front porch with a wrap-around corner porch, diamond-paned leaded-glass windows, tall 1/1 double-hung wood-sash windows, and a round turret at the second floor. The home is in excellent condition and retains high exterior architectural integrity in original location, design, materials, workmanship, and association as a single-family residence built in the late 1800s in Spokane.
