Diamond Head-Kahala

Kahala Avenue

A century of homebuilding in Kahala has produced appealing streetscapes throughout the neighborhood with virtually every architectural style represented…from Plantation to modern and contemporary. Several homes have been placed on National and State Registers of Historic Places. Older homes are typically set in landscaped yards with mature gardens and trees. Newer additions to the mix often feature elaborate entries and decorative gates. The majority of the vintage homes are found on streets closest to the ocean, and happily many of them have been preserved by owners who recognize their value, not just monetarily, but culturally as well, enriching both the natural and built environment. Recent builds that showcase innovative concepts and incorporate the latest technology continue to contribute to the unique architectural diversity of Kahala.

Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties Realtor John Steinmiller has listed an elegant modern/ contemporary home built in 2015 on a 15,750-square-foot lot at 4432 Kahala Avenue. This spacious 8,073-square-foot home harmoniously combines design, size, and scale in four full bedroom suites, two half baths, chef’s kitchen, living room, family room, dining room, home office, butler’s bar, and fitness studio. A poolside cabana with half bath, outdoor shower, and covered seating area creates a resort-like feel. The large swimming pool, measuring 17 by 35 feet, is finished with emerald-blue tile. The property also includes a gated motor court with a three-car garage, workshop, and conduit for an electric car.

“A ten-foot steel-framed pivoting front door introduces you to the custom architecture and the 20-foot ceilings in the entry foyer,” Steinmiller said.

“While the home is expansive, the interior spaces are designed to create defined areas between the living room, dining room, kitchen, and family room. The living room, with 15-foot ceilings and full length pocketing glass doors, seamlessly flows to the pool and manicured grounds. The intimate dining room looks out onto one of two bubbling meditation pools. Also on the first floor are a large guest suite with wet bar and separate entry, fitness studio with a massage table, steam room with shower, cycle, and mirrored wall with ballet barre. Designed for entertaining, the kitchen features Wolf, Asko, and Sub Zero appliances, quartz countertops, custom-built white oak cabinetry, and a built-in breakfast nook with stitched leather seating. Upstairs is the generous master suite with seating area, two walk-in closets, separate soaking tub and shower, two additional suites, and a fully appointed utility room. This is an exceptional property defined by the quality of materials, construction, and design.”

The home is listed at $7,800,000 and is being shown by appointment. For information or showings, contact John Steinmiller (R) at 808-381-5387 or
