Name: Albert Bash House
Year Built: 1890
Location: Washington Street
Area: Port Townsend
The current owners have been working to restore this Queen Anne-style house to its original elegance. Years of neglect necessitated weather-proofing as a first step, then reinforcement of the foundation and walls.
The second story 1937-remodel was removed, and construction of a new roofline was done, giving the home an appearance similar to the original building. (New building codes prevented the exact reproduction.) A new basement entry was built, as well as the front porch.
Several procedures are planned for the future, as this is a lengthy restoration process. The home provides a wonderful view from its hillside location.
