The English Cottage Style home was built in 1928 by architect/ builder H.B. Painter for Earl and Virginia Young. The style of the home is called a «vernacular Tudor Revival residential architecture.» The design stems from the late 19th and 20th century revivial movements, the design of the home reflects many American Movements of the same period, such as California Craftsman movement that can be seen in the framing, masonry, and stucco details.
The House is currently owned by Rudi and Joanna Herz, who have furnished the home with a treasure trove of unique collections. The Herz's moved the House from its original location on South Bascom Ave to the property on White Oaks Road. They spent many years restoring the historic home and it is certainly a special treat to explore.
