The Chiarelli House is eligible for listing in the National register of Historic Places (NRHP) under Criterion C and is significant in the area of architecture as a locally significant example of Northwest Modernism that embodies the distinctive characteristics of its period of construction. It is also significant under Criterion C as an outstanding work of noted architect James J. Chiarelli, a locally significant architect of the twentieth century who both designed and physically built the dwelling, who is particularly significant for his contributions to Northwest Modernism during the mid-twentieth century. The period of significance for the Chiarelli House, 1949-1955, spans from the dwelling's date of completion in 1949 to the date the fence was added in the rear yard when the neighboring house was sold out of family hands. This transition marks a slight alteration of the original vision for the site's design.
