This house was built by William Toler for his father-in-law Ygnacio Peralta. It may be the first brick house in Alameda County. Peralta and his brothers established the first Spanish/Mexican settlements in the northern East Bay on the land grant called Rancho San Antonio. The land grant was awarded to Ygnacio's father Lu Maria Peralta in 1820.

The house was originally sited on 40 acres of land with a palm-lined horseshoe drive and gardens that fronted East 14th Street. The house belonged to the Peralta family 1875. The wooden frame portion of the house was added by the next owner, A. C. Peachery, who owned the home until 1909, when it was purchased by Daniel Best.

When a realtor planned to demolish the house in 1926, the Alta Mira Club purchased the home to serve as its clubhouse. Since then the home has been owned and preserved by the Alta Mira Club.
