Diamond Head Beachfront
Homes fronting Diamond Head Beach enjoy a choice location like no other in Hawaii. This unique residential enclave, accessed from Diamond Head Road, includes properties that have historically commanded record prices and rarely become available. In addition to access to a sandy beach washed by clear, reefprotected waters, the general quality of the community is a feature that contributes to its desirability. Favored by kamaaina families over the years, the Diamond Head Beach neighborhood showcases the work of some of Hawaii’s most prominent architects. Homes have been designed with sensitivity to this special environment at the foot of Diamond Head crater, taking advantage of the spectacular ocean and coastal views.
An exquisite, Island-style home situated on a 15,044-square-foot beachfront lot at the end of a private drive has been placed on the market by Julianna Garris, a Realtor with The Choi Group with Hawaii Life.
Originally built in 1941, the home was rebuilt between 2003 and 2005 and guest quarters added subsequently as all-new construction. The two-story home is a spacious 2,676 square feet augmented by a 286-square-foot lanai; the guest quarters with a full bath and wet bar sits over a 772-square-foot two-car garage that includes a garden/ art room.
“The main living and dining area is spacious and airy, with high ceilings and pocketing glass doors that open to ocean and garden views,” Garris said. “The second floor master suite opens to a covered lanai and also overlooks the ocean…another great vantage point to watch the surfers riding the waves out on the reef. On the main level are the living room, kitchen, dining area, den, two full bathrooms, and a guest bedroom.
“The home itself was rebuilt with exceptional attention to design details, in keeping with the spirit and charm of a classic kamaaina residence. Among its many quality finishes are hardwood flooring, crown moldings, coffered ceilings, and recessed lighting. The kitchen includes a service island and hardwood cabinets, some with glass doors and interior lighting to display glassware, top-of-the-line appliances, and a walk-in pantry.
“This exceptional property features 85 linear feet of frontage on one of the wider sections of the sandy beach. It is also one of very few oceanfront homes with an engineered and DLNR-approved sea wall. Virtually every type of ocean recreation is available here…just a few steps away. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with a broad manicured lawn extending to the seawall and many varieties of fragrant flowering plants and trees, as well as towering palms.
“The entry to the property is walled and accessed from a walkway that meanders through the gardens. What I find striking is the beauty of the property, which you recognize as soon as you enter through the gates.
“Available at $15,800,000 this is currently the best priced true oceanfront home from Diamond Head to Kahala for location and peaceful privacy, as well as for the large size of the property which has ample room for expansion of the home itself.”
