Meticulously Preserved Estate, Offering a Rare Opportunity

Nestled on a sprawling two-and-a-half-acre lot, this timeless gem, originally owned by the esteemed Orlando Lyman family, exudes the elegance and charm of its 1928 roots.

Meticulously restored and upgraded, this residence offers a serene homestead amidst lush greenery and vibrant blooms, including yellow and red Ohia blossoms, hapuu ferns, palms, and citrus trees. Approaching the porte-cochere, you’re greeted by a spacious covered lanai, ideal for both relaxation and entertainment.

Inside, craftsmanship of the era abounds, with features such as fir and other hardwood floors, koa wood accents, 8 and 9 ft tongue and groove ceilings, pocket doors, weighted-sash windows, and classic built-ins. The heart of the home, the living room, boasts a stunning stone gas fireplace and built-in bookshelves. A sunroom, added in the 1960s, showcases custom cabinets crafted for Orlando Lyman’s mineral collection.

The chef’s kitchen, elegantly remodeled, features reclaimed redwood facings on the original cabinets, new hardwood floors, granite countertops, and ample pantry-style cabinets with pull-out shelves. Adjacent to the kitchen is a separate dining room. The back entrance leads to a convenient storage area, laundry, and ¾ bathroom.

The primary suite boasts a walk-in closet and a remodeled bathroom with a custom Eucalyptus vanity and pottery bowl sink. Connected to the remodeled hall bath with a walk-in shower and custom vanity, is the second bedroom. A third bedroom offers additional flexibility as an office or guest room.
