Believed to have been built in 1912 and listed in the Green Bay Road National Register District as the Albert Ridgely Brunker House and Guest House, this residence has been totally renovated and refurbished while retaining its historic character.  Over a number of years a terrace and compatible garage were added to the original house, all roofs were reconstructed, a garden reflecting pond was restored, and the yard and gardens were renovated.  Interior renovation over the years included upgrading of all mechanical systems; installation of concealed air conditioning; restoration of walls, ceilings, crown moldings, and floors; stripping up to thirteen layers of paint from trim, sills, and doors; and rebuilding the library, foyer, and powder room.
