homes072416-5Twelfth a series

Only a limited number of homes enjoy direct frontage on the Waialae Golf Course. A luxurious home on one of the largest properties fronting the fairways is currently being offered by Locations Realtor Dolores Bediones, who notes that the home is also very favorably situated in a quiet cul de sac off the main access road into the up-scale enclave.

The 16,614 square foot lot on 5931 Waipahee Place overlooks the 10th Hole (1st Hole for the Sony Open) and offers sweeping views of one of Hawaii’s most prestigious and scenic golf courses, home of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

With 4,614 square feet of interior space augmented by a 341 square foot covered poolside lanai and high coffered ceilings, the home is open and spacious. The entire main living/dining area opens up to the swimming pool, gardens, and unobstructed views of the golf course through disappearing floor-to-ceiling glass doors, enhancing the indoor/outdoor ambiance.

Architect for the elegantly designed, four bedroom, five and a half bath home was Design Partners. Quality finishes include travertine flooring, African mahogany cabinets and trim on doors, windows, ceilings, and baseboards, etched glass surround in the master bath, and granite countertops. The expansive, luxurious master suite with views on two sides includes an office/sitting room and bathroom with double vanities, walk-in shower, and soaking tub. Other special features of the home are a well-equipped workout room and separate laundry/storage area.

The steel-frame structure’s stucco exterior is complemented by wood shake roofing; an enclosed garage provides parking for three cars, and driveway space can accommodate several more. The professionally landscaped gardens feature a koi pond fed by a waterfall cascading over lava rock. The entire property is walled with a metal gate at the entrance; a private gate provides access to the golf course.

“When you walk into this home with its expansive main living areas that flow to the outdoors you feel as though you are in an acre-size estate,” Bediones said. “The views are unobstructed and, of course, this is one of the best maintained and most picturesque golf courses on Oahu. At night, you look out over the large, free-form, lighted swimming pool surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens and flickering torches…this view is simply enchanting. The home was designed not only for the personal enjoyment of the owners, but also for entertaining guests. The kitchen with its top-ofthe-line appliances, including two separate refrigerators, two ovens, two dishwashers, and refrigerated wine storage, can accommodate large scale entertaining. A barbecue kitchen and dining area on the lanai is another feature that makes this home so appealing to anyone who enjoys entertaining and an indoor/outdoor lifestyle.”

The home, which is listed at $5,395,000, is being shown by appointment and at open houses. An open house will be held this Sunday, July 24, from 2 to 5 p.m.
