Homes for the Luxury Lifestyle

First in a series

Two homes designed for luxury living in Oahu’s premier beachfront neighborhood are being offered by Choi International…they are the only upscale residences currently listed for sale on Kahala Beach and top the price range of homes on the market in the Kahala area.

Both homes are situated on large lots that extend to the shore of Maunalua Bay and enjoy a sweeping view from Black Point to the west to Koko Head and Koko Crater to the east. The beach is sandy and the ocean calm where the homes are located approximately midway between Black Point peninsula and the Kahala Hotel and Resort. Surfable waves break a few hundred yards offshore on the reef.

4711D Kahala Avenue, priced at $16,500,000, was designed by prominent Hawaii architect John Hara AIA and built by award-winning Armstrong Builders, both known for their work on luxury homes. The single level home with 5,800 square feet of roofed living area overlooks a grassy lawn punctuated by towering coco palms. The 34,174 square foot property’s exceptionally wide beach frontage of 125 linear feet ensures unobstructed views. The main living area looks out through glass walls across the large outdoor lanai to the gardens and ocean.

The private back yard area includes a resort-size swimming pool and covered outdoor dining patio. The five bedroom, six and a half bath home, designed with an open floor plan and soaring ceilings, includes a unique two story library, a home office, a professional grade kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, a wine cellar, and an authentic pizza oven on the patio. The master suite features a glass enclosed combination shower and furo-style soaking tub. Reconstituted stone flooring is complemented by warm ash hardwood surfaces throughout. Ideal for entertaining, the home includes a guest suite with living room, bedroom, bath, and kitchen.

4461 Kahala Avenue, priced at $16,950,000, is a spacious home with a 9,711 square foot interior augmented by 2,067 square feet of lanais. Built in 1976 and remodeled in 2002, this is a home that can accommodate a large family and guests while providing privacy to its various distinct living areas.

There are intimate spaces for small gatherings and areas that can be utilized for large parties, from the beachfront covered lanai with its sweeping ocean views, to the expansive living room and elegant dining room, to the unique swimming pool deck equipped for outdoor barbecues.

In addition to its four bedrooms, five full baths, two half baths, and large gourmet kitchen, this two level home includes several specially designed rooms such as a chairman’s office, ladies’ salon / office, and media room. The master suite on the upper level opens to a large lanai with a panoramic view. Above the three car garage is staff quarters, which can also be used as an exercise room.

The 19,406 square foot gated property extends from Kahala Avenue to the beach.

In addition to these beach-front homes, Choi International, the Honolulu affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, is also listing seven homes in other parts of Kahala. Choi International President and CEO Patricia Choi said, “Kahala is the center of real estate values in Hawaii. The further you are from Kahala, the further you are from the highest values. Here, prices tend to drop the least in a down market and increase the most in an up market. It is a wonderful residential community with great people.”
