The Herbert Austin Residence, built between 1925 and 1926 is a one-and-a-half story structure and is basically rectangular in plan. It has a steep, side-gabled roof which flares at the enclosed eave ends and an off-centered shed dormer on the front facade over the enclosed side lanai entry. The walls are clad in coursed shingles, and the structure is on post footings. The Herbert Austin Residence is significant as an intact example of the work done by master architect Hart Wood and as an example of the Colonial revival style adapted to Hawaii.
