Built in 1923, the William H. and Lina Getz Residence is two-stories in height and is rendered in a Colonial revival style. Its balanced, asymmetric facade features on the first story a centered entrance with a Doric columned portico. The house has clapboard walls and sits on a lava rock foundation. It features a hip-gable roof with overhanging eaves and exposed rafter tails. The Getz Residence is significant as a good example of a 1920s Colonial revival style house in Honolulu. It is also significant for its associations with the development of Pacific Heights.
