The house is a one-and-a-half-storey, side-gabled Craftsmen structure. Bell lived at 2006 Whyte Ave., which is also on the Vancouver Heritage Register.

George Dunlap was an active builder prior to World War I, building mostly commercial buildings on the east side of Vancouver. The first occupant of the house was Robert W.
