This residence is a single-story, frame dwelling whose main house has a prominent, high-pitched, hipped roof. The main house is part of a complex of three individual structures connected by a roofed lanai. The three structures consist of the main house, the kitchen/dining building, and servant’s quarters. Designed by Charles Gay himself, the residence is a good example of c. 1895 kamaaina residence. It is very similar to traditional Hawaiian architecture and eighteenth- to nineteenth-century Western architecture employed in warm climates.
