The Hoey Residence is significant on the local level as a good example of a house built in Honolulu during the 1930s in a Spanish colonial style. The house includes a number of distinctive features and is typical of its period in its design, materials, workmanship and methods of construction. It is the work of a master, having been designed by Honolulu architect Louis Davis, and possesses high artistic values. The house is also significant at the local level for its associations with the music composer R. Alexander Anderson, who purchased the property in 1943 and lived here until his death in 1995.
