The Edric Cook Residence is a two-story Cape Cod style house, built in 1935 by the English-born Cook as the sixth house along the Ala Wai canal. It was moved in 1968 by Mr. and Mrs. Anthony Delpiano to its current address in Kailua, to make way for the Fairway Villa Apartments. The house features a steep gable-front roof, covered by cut, wood shingles, shed dormers, and open eaves. Its symmetrical facade has shingled walls, multi-light double-hung windows, shutters, and a single-story entry porch with hipped roof. It was designed by V. Ossipoff in the building department of T.H. Davies & Co. and M. Kiuchi was the contractor, according to a newspaper article at the time. Mr. Cook also worked as a cashier for the Davies Co.
