The Guard House is an imposing two-story wood frame mansion set on a high knoll above the Wailuku River gulch. The house is designed in a Neoclassical Revival style with a broad, partially glassed-in verandah which encloses the long front and entrance end. The Guard House is significant as one of the most intact examples of a Neoclassical home in Hawaii. The house has further significance for its association with noted Hawaii architects Ripley & Davis, who designed the home.
