Own a piece of the Kahaluu mountainside

One cool thing about living on Oahu: There’s a big, metropolitan area in the heart of Honolulu, but you can easily escape all of that in about 40 minutes and hide in a mountain sanctuary.

This 21-acre estate in Kahaluu is one of those tranquil, hidden spots. Once you enter the gates of “Circle DJ Ranch,” you’ll drive up a 2,200-foot, tree-lined driveway (almost half a mile) just to get to the main residence. (Click here for details.)

The main house, built in 1991, is 4,509 square feet of living area, comprising three bedrooms and four baths with almost 2,000 square feet in lanai and decks around the home. Downstairs, it has another 1,119 square feet downstairs for the maid’s quarters, as well, with room for a gym.

The main living area has a “Great Room” with soaring, double-height open-beamed ceilings that make it look even more spacious than it already is. From there, despite being hidden, you can see panoramic views of the ocean out to Chinaman’s Hat, as well as the surrounding mountains.

The caretaker’s house is a separate structure, built in 1954 with three bedrooms and one bath. This home has 988 square feet of living area and a porch of 420 square feet; there’s also a 200-square-foot aviary.

A unique pool and spa with a waterfall was added to the home in 2004, which doubles as a resort-like water feature for the property. A six-stall stable completes the estate; what ranch wouldn’t have a stable? For those who need to drive instead, the home also has an enclosed, four-car garage.

You almost don’t need to leave the estate with all the fruit trees on property, including mangos, avocados, strawberry guavas, and cashews. There are also colorful spots with flowers like gardenias, roses, and orchids.

If you decide to take an excursion off the estate, just remember that Neiman Marcus is just 35 to 40 minutes away, without traffic.

Money talk: $2,998,000 fee simple
