Description - A north-facing triplex, 712 17th Street exhibits elements of the Ranch form of architecture. The house has a concrete foundation, horizontal wood siding, and a hipped roof with asphalt shingles and boxed eaves. The mirror image façade has two paneled doors with concrete stoops, a picture window on the east and west ends, and one-over-one windows in the center. Additionally, four single-light basement windows are visible on the façade, one on each side of the concrete stoops. A single car, hipped roof garage is attached to the home on the west elevation and accessed from the alley on the west side. A third entrance to the home is south of the garage on the west elevation. The south and east elevations are concealed by fencing and heavy vegetation, but additional basement and main floor windows are visible. A fourth entrance to the home, a ground level door on the east elevation, is also visible.

Historical Background - 712 17th Street was constructed in circa 1950 as a multiple dwelling unit. Many people have rented units in the home since that time, including several college students. Over the past few years, the property has changed owners several times. Ralph and Harriet Boehner sold the house to Steven and Catherine Foster in January of 1995; the Fosters sold the home in September 1996 to Vernon L. Kury. In August 2002, Mr. Kury sold the unit to Thomas Pollard and Kevin Hill, who in turn sold it to Cathy Reyes in October 2005. The current owners, Margaret Mosier and Allen Gnuschke purchased the property in June 2007..
