Kaiser Estate Ariel

One of America’s most expensive homes

One of Oahu’s “trophy properties,” the Kaiser Estate in Hawaii Kai, still holds the record of the highest residential sale on Oahu and one of the highest in the nation, which was set 20 years ago. Japanese billionaire Genshiro Kawamoto paid $42.5 million back then. The configuration was slightly different then with some parcels included that are not included now, and some that are included now that weren’t then. What was also shocking was that when Kawamoto made the purchase, the parcels were all leasehold. They have since been purchased from Kamehameha schools, making the current offering fee simple, which in turn makes the property significantly more valuable.

While the Kaiser Estate tops the list of Oahu’s most expensive homes, there are many others that are noteworthy. For those affluent buyers for whom “money isn’t an issue,” here’s a gallery I put together of Oahu’s Most Expensive Homes. Feel free to contact me if any of these interest you.
