The existing structure, known as the Hiscock House, was built in approximately 1888 and is a good example of the Eastlake Italianate style of architecture. Due to its architectural significance, the City of Santa Barbara Landmarks Committee designated the property a Structure of Merit in 1983. The house was converted to an office building in approximately 1983 – 1984 by an architect/owner, meticulously preserving the original integrity of the building.
