The Ludloff Residence is a one-and-a-half-story house with a composition-shingled, double-pitched hip roof with overhanging eaves and exposed, carved rafters. The facade is dominated by the lava-rock lanai and porte cochere at the right corner. The Ludloff Residence is significant for its architecture as a good example of an early 1930s residence designed by Hart Wood. It is the only example of Hart Wood’s residential design known to exist in Hilo and it is one of the better examples of his later residential work.
