Constructed in 1929, Hibiscus Place is a two-family Mediterranean Revival style residence located at the mauka end of a narrow, private way on the southwestern slope of Diamond Head, in the subdivision historically known as Diamond Head Terrace. The builder, Charles Ingvorsen and his wife, Mary M. Ingvorsen, came to the United States from Denmark. He developed a number of smaller homes in the Diamond Head Terrace subdivision, and retained this property high on the slopes of Diamond Head for his family. Originally, the Hibiscus Place land consisted of approximately 17,739 square feet but, the property was subdivided in the 1950’s into three separate parcels. The current owner acquired and reassembled two of the three parcels of land into a single property that now consists of 12,495 square feet.
