The powerhouse architectural firm, Johnson, Kaufmann and Coate, designers of notable Spanish Colonial Revival residences across Southern CA between 1921 and 1924, created this house for Harold Hyde Braly (b. 1879 in San Jose, CA), a notable Los Angeles financier. He was the son of John Hyde Braly, a CA pioneer, who worked early on as a teacher in Northern CA before starting a new career as a banker founding the Los Angeles-based Southern California Savings Bank in 1883. John Hyde Braly had the Braly Block constructed in 1903, one of Los Angeles's earliest skyscrapers.
