The Soares Residence was built in 1926. This two-story residence has a hip shaped roof, wide overhanging eaves, an upper story with board and batten walls and a lower story of double-wall construction with exterior wood shingles. The interior retains many detailed features of the original structure including paneled wainscoting, a paneled ceiling, crown moulding and decorative hardware. The Antonio Victorino Soares and Arcenia Fernandes Soares Residence is significant as an intact example of the “Hawaiian Style” bungalow built in Hawaii in the 1920s and 1930s.
