The August Christian Spoehler House is a two-story, Gothic Revival Bungalow with Colonial Revival features built in 1929 in the lower Manoa Valley residential area of Honolulu. It fronts Ferdinand Avenue with the Tantalus hillside as a backdrop. The lot was part of a subdivsion called Castle Terrace that Percy Pond developed from the original Castle Estate. The house is significant for its architecture as an example of bungalow type architecture of the 1920s in Hawaii. It is an eclectic mix of Gothic Revival and Colonial Revival, which were two popular residential styles in Hawaii and on the mainland during the 1920’s and 1930’s.
