This Hatch Residence is a two story dwelling built circa 1930 in Manoa Valley. The house is significant for its architecture as an example of the Craftsman style bungalow, a style that was popular in Hawai`i in the early twentieth century. Typical of this style is the foundation of uncoursed stone and mortar, asymmetrical plan and exterior siding of wood shiplap. The roof is predominantly hipped on gable. The original shingles were probably made of wood. The exposed rafters with knee braces on the back of the house are also typical of the Craftsman style. The Hatch Residence appears to be one story from the street, but is nearly three stories high as one approaches the back of the sloping property.
