Julia Duncan’s house is a fine example of the “Picturesque” approach to Tudor revival style, featuring a variety of high-quality materials (brick, stone, stucco, timbers, and wood shingles) and excellent craftsmanship. She built the house after the death of her husband David, who with their son Charles was a partner of Frank Brewer (the Duncan’s son-in-law) in the Duncan and Brewer Lumber Company, which set up a mill at the foot of Thirty-Ninth Avenue West in 1880.
