This is one of several houses in the area built by O. M. Kulien, a prominent local contractor who maintained offices in the Kulien Building on Western Avenue. It was built in 1929, possibly on speculation and perhaps from a pattern book design. The house has notably large windows, apparently original, for the period. This gives it an unusually modern look. The arched window provides a Mediterranean feel (although there is no tile roof), while the brickwork is more characteristic of the Tudor Revival. The first owner is not known, but it was purchased in 1939 by Stephanie Anne Burroughs, the widow of J. W. Burroughs, and she lived here until the house was sold in 2000.
 
Appearance
The brick-clad house sits high above the street with two garages and a rockery in front. It has a gable-front- and-wing form, with a large arched picture window on the gable end and two daylight basement windows below. The fa├žade around the arched window has decorative patterns of clinker brick. The entry is at the angle of the ell, with a hood supported by corbelled brick. Nearby is a second picture window. The south elevation has a tall exterior brick chimney.
