The two-story Thomas Petrie residence has shiplap siding, decorative arched windows, soffitted eaves with decorative rafters, Doric columned capitals in a porte cochere, and a stone fireplace. The interior features a 12-foot high ceiling, pocket doors, a decorative stair leading to the second story, coffered ceilings, built-in bookshelves, and double hung windows. Built in 1923, the Thomas Petrie Residence is significant for its association with community planning and development in Manoa Valley as well as with Thomas Petrie, a locally prominent businessman and politician in the early 20th century. It is also an example of a large mansion with a blend of Colonial Revival and Victorian design elements.
