The Doctor Frank and Kathryn Plum Residence in Waikiki was built in 1929. It is significant as an example of a Cotswold Cottage style residence constructed in Hawaii during the time period of the late 1920’s and early 1930’s. The Plum Residence is one of approximately twenty such styled houses to remain in Honolulu. It well reflects the style with its romantic asymmetric massing, and its use of such eclectic and picturesque elements as its skewed gable, front bay window, wrought iron mock-balconet in the round arched gable vent, canted walls with their wound arched doors, double pitched roof, and shed roof dormers.
