The Las Vegas contractor M.M. Sundt, who built of many of the houses designed by Rapp and Rapp, erected this house for himself. The Colonial Revival elements of the classically detailed porch and bracketed cornice dress up a solid vernacular construction of brick walls and a metal gable roof with flaring eaves. The Sundt House is, typically, set back 40 feet from the street, on a lot with a frontage of 100 feet but, like the nearby Johnsen house, an exceptional depth of 295 feet.
