The house is part of an enclave of eight houses built by the developer Charles Hephill. Known as Milburn Park and built between 1937 and 1939, the houses all featured lannon stone exteriors, with cut stone classical entryways and dark stained wood front doors. In the 1950s two houses, a ranch style house and small red brick colonial, were built on two of the four lots fronting on the lake. The brick colonial was torn down as a site for the house. The new house has a stone front with a classical stone entryway and stained front door. The back of the house is informal and open and is finished with stained wood boards to suggest a beach house. The ground floor is an open plan with spaces defined by columns, beamed ceilings, and wide cased openings with interior transom windows. Every living space has a view of the lake.
