Liljestrand House above Honolulu
Most everyone who appreciates architecture knows Frank Lloyd Wright’s work, and in Hawaii, we had another great man who left his mark on our beautiful islands.
Vladimir Ossipoff has been called “the master of Hawaii Modern architecture,” Â “the dean of residential architects in Hawaii,” and “the premier postwar designer of kama’aina-style residences in Honolulu.” Perhaps the most famous of which is the Liljestrand House pictured here.

Today, on Kauai, you can purchase a home designed byÂ OssipoffÂ that is currently listed as an REOÂ for just over $400K (MLS# 235840).Â It sits on the rim overlooking the Wailua River Valley on Kauai’s fabulous East Side. The views are incredible from this simple home that need just a bit of TLC.
My husband and I looked at this home a few years ago and thought it was an amazing opportunity at just under $1M. Now I think it’s time to revisit that thought process. What an opportunity to own an OssipoffÂ home, on Kauai, overlooking the beautiful Hawaiian lands all the way to Mount Waialeale, the wetest spot in the world. The site on which this simple home was built is very similar to the one pictureÂ above at the Lijestrand House.
