The Lemon Wond Holt Residence, built in 1932, is a two-story, fantasy picturesque style house sited on a 5,936 square foot lot. A lava rock retaining wall, rising approximately eight feet high dominates the street frontage. The expansive, double wall, balloon frame house sits on a lava rock foundation and is characterized by a prominent, playful roofline; off-center portico with a skewed gable roof; and fanciful Tudoresque applied ornamentation. The Lemon Wond Holt Residence is significant as a good example of a modestly detailed, fantasy picturesque style residence constructed in Hawaii in the period of the late 1920s, early 1930s, and also for its associations with the Holts, a prominent Hawaiian family in Honolulu.
