The property was built in the mid-twentieth century in the forties, architecturally encompassing the property within the predominant rationalism in the era. The property is built by the Garc a Estrada family, on part of a property that belonged to them since the 18th century. The last mayor of Realejo Alto, Don Nicol s Gonz lez del Carmen, lived there. At the beginning of the 20th century, architecture in the Canary Islands was immersed in different languages with multiple decorative and formal influences with academic, historicist and regionalist compositions. The avant-garde of the beginning of this century resulted in the creation of a new language. Rationalism, which lacks superfluous ornamentation with pure lines and a tendency to abstraction of forms and volumes, is incorporated into the new architectural models, starting from the new facade compositions until reaching the spatial conception of the new buildings.
The building is built on a rectangular floor plan and is built up to a height of two floors using modern construction systems, fostered by the use of reinforced concrete and cement mortar. The arrangement of the openings is neat, with constructive simplicity when it comes to covering them with standardized woodwork. The set is covered with a flat cover. Inside, it is worth mentioning its hydraulic slab pavement and the forging rail for access to the second floor.
