Washington Place is an approximately three-acre property that contains a two-story residence set amid a variety of trees, shrubs, and flowers. The building has a hipped roof, classical cornice, a porte cochere, lanais with either square masonry piers or Tuscan columns, and French windows. The interior features columns and pilasters set upon paneled and molded pedestals with moldings for base and capitals, a wood wainscot, and wood floors. Washington Place is significant for its association with the social and political history of Hawaii, for its association with Hawaiian Royalty, and as an example of the use of the Greek Revival style in nineteenth-century Hawaii.
