Homes for the Luxury Lifestyle

homes0309_4Seventeenth in a series

Thoughtfully designed, luxurious, and private, this brand new custom home is located on a quiet side street on the eastern edge of Kahala. Situated on a 8,477 square foot lot at 1008 Koae Street, the home was completed in 2013, replacing a 60-year-old single story frame house. With a total of 3,190 square feet, it is nearly three times the size of the original structure. In addition, the property includes a 533 square foot garage, a swimming pool, and large outdoor recreation area.

“The architect and builders made maximum use of this property,” said listing Realtor Sachi Braden. “With its surrounding stone wall and lush tropical landscaping, it is designed for both privacy and security. When you enter through the secured double gate, you experience the ambiance of a peaceful oasis.”

Braden describes the floor plan as “inspired,” with spacious open areas taking advantage of natural lighting and ventilation. Collapsible sliding doors open up to allow a natural flow between the outdoors and main interior living spaces, including the great room, dining area, den, and kitchen. Skylights provide additional illumination. Bedrooms and baths also overlook the pool area and gardens. The master suite includes a separate den/office, large walk-in closet with built-in cabinetry, and a bath with dual vanity, walk-in shower, separate soaking tub, and Travertine tile floors and walls. A second master suite also includes a bath with upscale finishes. Two additional bedrooms share a large Jack-and-Jill bath.

Not the least of the attractions of this very livable, functional home is the location within a few minutes of Kahala Mall with its numerous options for shopping and dining, Kahala beaches, parks, schools, freeway access, and several routes to Waikiki.

Braden, principal broker of Sachi Hawaii Pacific Century Properties, is offering the home for $2,998,000 and showing it by appointment.
