Oceanfront Options – The North Shore – Mokuleia
By the time the winter big wave surfing competitions conclude at the famous beaches of Oahu’s North Shore, visitors and competitors from all parts of the world will have been exposed to the energy and ambiance of this unique part of Hawaii. Many have purchased their own personal “piece of paradise,” contributing to the diversity of the North Shore communities.
North Shore real estate has continued to appreciate dramatically over the past three decadess. Homes along the stretch of coastline between Kahuku and Kaena Point range from “beach shacks” to multi-million dollar estates and condominium developments. Kamaaina families have continued to maintain both primary and secondary residences on the North Shore, and companies such as Bill-abong, Hurley, and Volcom have purchased properties in choice beachfront locations. Commercial development is concentrated primarily in Haleiwa Town, where several new commercial projects have just been completed. Despite the extensive media exposure and the increase in upscale residential real estate development, the North Shore of Oahu continues to resist excesses of urban encroachment and retain its country atmosphere.
Located near Kaena Point, the westernmost tip of Oahu’s North Shore, Mokuleia is probably the next community along the 22-mile coast that will eventually feature mostly higher-end properties, as the older homes in the area are replaced or extensively renovated.
Among them is a two-bedroom, one-bath beach cottage on Crozier Drive, built in 1941 and remodeled and upgraded last year by a new owner. Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties is currently offering the home for $2,350,000.
Listing real estate agent Michael Shower said the previous owners were a family that had lived there since before statehood.
The 1,053-square-foot home is situated on 5,298 square feet of fee simple, R-7.5-zoned land that offers a perfect, direct oceanfront view as well as views of the Waianae mountain range, and access to a family-friendly, wide sandy beach extending for miles in either direction. Several surfing spots are within paddling distance.
Other features include double-wall construction, hardwood and laminate flooring, new appliances, completely remodeled kitchen and bathroom, two-car garage, level yard with landscaping and fencing, and a sea wall.
“This is a classic beach house in the best-kept secret location on the North Shore,” said Shower, who specializes in luxury oceanfront properties. “The neighborhood is quiet with a true country feel and limited public beach access, which decreases use of the local roads by tourists. Crozier Drive is a very special location and the home we are offering is one of the lowest-priced, direct oceanfront single-family homes on the North Shore.”
