A permit for the construction of a villa for plumber Frederick Charles Jull on Part Town Section 372 was granted by the New Plymouth Borough Council in October 1913 - estimated construction cost £400.

This part of Section 372 was gifted to Frederick from George Jull (his father), in October 1913. George lived in an old nineteenth century cottage (now demolished) on the other half of Town Section 372 - present site of 35 Mt Edgecumbe Street/90 Fulford Street.

Frederick remained living in the house until his death on 23 July 1943, and is buried in Te Henui Cemetery.

Along with nearby villas on Mt Edgcumbe, Vivian and Powderham Streets, this building is part of a cluster of homes clearly illustrating the development of the villa from a simple square box with projecting gable, to the more ornate home we commonly associate with villas - all within a relatively short time period.
