This home and the adjacent 686 Palm Haven Avenue were built on speculation by "Better Built Construction" in 1955 and 1956 respectively. Their construction and details represent a minimum of investment for return by inserting a very modest form of "Ranch" style into Palm Haven. This follows the generally accepted definition of American Ranch well into the post-WWII years as, "Any single-story structure with a rambling plan." This often included locating the garage to the front of the property to create backyard space. This is in stark contrast with Palm Haven's historical context of auto garages located to the rear of properties.

Layout and siding all appear to be original.

This 1921 home was designed by Hermann Krause for Adrian and Sophie Klein. While Krause was a fan of the Italian Rennaissance Revival, the style execution here stopped short leaving out key elements. But the home is largely intact and in good condition. Krause and Klein collaborated making parade floats for the "Fiesta De Las Rosas" in the garage of this house. Adrian Klein was a colorful character involved in a variety of things during his lifetime. He was an automobile fan and owned parts and service stores for a while. Descendants of the Klein family indicate that Adrian was a bootlegger. Sophie owned the Bon-Ton Millinery.
