This house was built in 1923 by Louis Rudolph and sold to J. Hoover Love, Deputy County Tax Collector and son of the prominent Ventura physician Dr. J. H. Love. It is unique in it’s blending of a Mediterranean exterior with an American Arts and Crafts Movement interior. The Mediterranean influence is seen in the parapet roof and symmetrical stucco facade. Craftsman features include a carved wood door with four narrow panes flanked by narrow multi paned windows. French doors with wrought iron railings are found on each side of the main entrance with raised quatrefoils.
