The complex was built in 1930, and it is composed of the house along 20 hectares of gardens.

The original expression is that of the house of the Guarani chief. Later, the name was adapted to mean the house of the President of the Republic. As Mburuvicha means "chief," the expression could be expanded to mean the house of the highest official in the particular social setting.
