Early in January I worked on this property in Lanikai. The house is built high on the hillside, and this is what you see from the front porch:
Not bad, huh? I tried not to get distracted by this beautiful view.
It is a three bedroom, four bath kama'aina estate, offered for $2.9 million. Don't have that kid of money? You can still come along with me for the tour below.
I could have breakfast at this outdoor table just off the kitchen any day really.
Or hang out in the afternoon with a good book on the front porch. Sliding pocket doors open the living room to the outside.
There is a terrace in the back, and steps lead to the small house in the garden that would make a perfect yoga/ meditation room. Or an office, depending on what your priorities may be.
The kitchen is awesome! It was a joy to stage. Clean lines, white cabinets, warm wood floor. The only color I wanted to introduce here was green, which goes lovely with the blue-grey of the countertops.
The aforementioned breakfast area is just outside the sliding doors.
There is a small bar opposite the gas cooktop, perfect for someone to keep the cook company while dinner is prepared, or for a child (or two) to do homework. Yes, I went with the friend keeping company route with my staging.
The meditation room in the back garden.
The spa-like master bath has the same grey-blue color scheme as the kitchen.
The master bedroom boasts incredible views also. Imagine waking up to the sun rise over the Mokolua islands just out your window.
This was a fun project for me, despite having to lug furniture up the steps. I am sure this house will make its new owners very happy. If you are interested, contact Anne Oliver at Coldwell Banker Honolulu.
