The Austin Jones residence is a two-story frame residence with wide clapboard siding on the first story and shingles on the second. It is capped with a hipped roof with overhanging eaves and exposed rafters, with screened ventilators in the frieze. The Austin Jones residence is significant as an example of a modest, early twentieth century residence in Manoa Valley, which is of further interest as a result of its subsequent second story addition. Both the first and second stories retain their integrity, and exhibit typical construction materials and hardware of their period. The house was one of four constructed for P. C. Jones in 1902. It was the most modest of the group, as the others were built as principal residences for his children. In 1911 Jones turned the management of this house over to his grandson, Edwin Austin Jones, who added the second story and made the house his residence until his death in 1947.
