The Asa Baldwin Residence was built in 1933 along the beach front in the Spreckelsville area. It is a single-story, wood-frame residence that has double-pitched hipped roof lines, overhanging eaves, and exposed rafter tails. The house has a modified U-shaped plan with a central courtyard and fountain and is surrounded by a broad expansive lawn. The Asa Baldwin Residence is significant as an intact example of a Mission/Spanish-revival style residence built in the 1930s and designed by locally renowned architect, Charles W. Dickey. With its broad double-pitched roof, overhanging eaves, and interior open timber ceiling, the house has the hallmark elements of the “Hawaiian” style of building design perpetuated by C. W. Dickey in Hawaii during the 1920s and 1930s.
