The prosperous Ramírez instructed Portscheller to build a new, elegant house for his family. Similar to other classical brick designs of the master mason, this one stands out for its angled corner entrance topped by a pediment with the inscription “1884,” its intact second-floor wraparound balcony, and its rear, two-story arched gallery overlooking a walled courtyard.
Across the street, the c. 1870 compound at 807 Estrella served as the store and first residence of Pablo Ramírez. In traditional sandstone with a long, rectangular plan, the rear of the complex is defined by a wall and gateway along Zaragoza Street that encloses a courtyard with kitchen and stables. Decorative plaster remnants with floral motifs adorn the interior walls.
