The villa was built in 1927 and is considered to be one of the finest examples of the French Colonial period architecture surviving in Ho Chi Minh City today.

The Villa is situated on an area of more than 2,900 square meters (44x66m) at 110-112 Vo Van Tan Street in District 3 in the block between Ba Huyen Thanh Quan and Nguyen Thi Dieu.
