The Grant Van Valkenburg House (also known as the Anderson House) is a historic home in West Palm Beach, Florida, United States. It is located at 213 Rosemary Avenue. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1999.[1]

It was deemed significant as "a fine example of a Craftsman bungalow with Victorian detailing. The one and a half story, wood frame dwelling sits on a raised concrete foundation and has a gabled roof with multi-planes and two gabled dormers, all with wide, overhanging eaves. The house is clad in three wood variations and has many decorative exterior features, including Victorian scroll-sawn woodwork. The interior of the Van Valkenburg House features many elements characteristic of Craftsman-style bungalows, including built-in furniture, leaded glass cabinet doors, wide baseboards, picture rails, coved ceilings, round arch openings, and carved woodwork. The house remains largely intact since its construction in 1918 and retains a high degree of architectural integrity. The house is architecturally significant as one of the last remaining Craftsman bungalows with Victorian detailing within the City of West Palm Beach."[2]

The house was moved from 316 Hibiscus Street to its current location in 1996.[2]
