When it comes to Luxury Real Estate in Hawaii, oceanfront homes traditionally take the cake.
2500A Aha Aina Place (MLS# 1012974) tops the list, and is listed for $17,300,000
What if you don’t want to live on the water? Often times, I’ll have clients that don’t want the maintenance of living on the water, or they have a fear/phobia of tsunamis…Here are my favorite 3 luxury (non-oceanfront) homes on Oahu:
1. 2500A Aha Aina Place (MLS# 1012974) sits atop Waialae Nui Ridge. I’ve had the pleasure of spending a lot of time in this home, and also tops my list for a number of reasons. This home is literally “king of the hill.” It boasts 2 swimming pools, a hotel-like slide that connects the pools, a private movie theater, game room, and an incredible glass bridge entryway into the home over a brilliant water feature.
This villa (MLS# 1014657) sits atop Diamond Head Road
2. 3222 Diamond Head Road #6 (MLS# 1014657) is a fantastic villa that was recently re-listed on Diamond Head. This home last sold in 2005 for $9 million. My initial reaction is the price is somewhat lofty for non-oceanfront, however you simply cannot beat this location!
The late Roy Disney recently completed building a new home right across the street. The previous owner of this home put a lot of time, money, effort, and attention to detail here which really shows. Although #2 on my list, this home falls in my #1 (favorite) neighborhood of Diamond Head.
This Nuuanu Estate (MLS# 1010827) is a rare offering that hasn’t been available many years
3. 187 Dowsett Ave. (MLS# 1010827) is located in Nuuanu, where all the “old money” of Honolulu used to be. This home was built back in 1925. Not only was it incredible in its time, it was remodeled in 2010. It sits on 3.72 acres, boasts 6 bedrooms and 6.5 baths, and is over 6,725 square feet under roof (according to MLS).
