The Dickey Residence is a two-story, Hawaiian-style house with shingled walls and a prominent double pitched hipped roof with broad overhanging eaves and exposed rafter tails. It sits on a concrete slab and lava rock foundation. The Dickey Residence is significant on the state level under criterion C, as a good example of a house built in Honolulu during the 1930s in a Hawaiian 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 also the work of a master having been designed by C. W. Dickey for himself, and possesses high artistic values.
