Built in 1953, this single-story residence has a lateral running roof with broad overhanging closed eaves, a vertical tongue and groove front wall, and a garden landscape with Asian design influences. The interior features: bleached redwood ceiling and walls; a central lanai overlooking a landscaped courtyard; built-in shelves, cabinets, and furniture; pocket doors and screened openings; a rounded masonry fireplace; and a children’s wing. The Marshall M. Goodsill Residence is significant as an example of the work of master architect Vladimir Ossipoff. It is also significant for its association with Marshall Goodsill, a prominent Honolulu attorney.
