The Gustav A. Schuman Residence is a two story, has an H plan formed by shallow rear wings and covered, single story arcades in the front. Spanish mission revival in style, it has stuccoed walls, and a red tiled, hipped roof with open, overhanging eaves with exposed, carved rafter tails with a quatrefoil design under the eave between each rafter tail. Almost all the house’s openings are round arched. The house sits on a concrete foundation. The Gustav A. Schuman Residence is significant on the local level under criterion C, as a good example of a Spanish mission revival style house built in Honolulu during the 1920s.
