The gabled, two-storey house was built between 1893 and 1894 by the Düsseldorf architects Klein & Dörschel for the painter Theodor Rocholl. It was built in the neo-Renaissance style and reflects the construction methods, forms and materials of rural architecture romanticizing country life through a round corner tower with a bell-shaped dome, bay windows, natural stone base, half-timbering, shutters and crippled hipped. Thus, the house also referred to the village structure of Golzheim, which still existed at that time.
