A taste of European style on Hawaii Loa Ridge

McMansions are a dime a dozen these days, especially in high-end neighborhoods like Hawaii Loa Ridge. But this listing has a unique European flair that’s not often seen in Hawaii homes—perhaps because it was owned by the late television producer, Al Masini.

Designed with 18th-century French style—rarely seen in homes today, even mansions—this 9,416-square-foot residence greets guests with a grand staircase reminiscent of dramatic movie or Broadway scenes. If you walk through the stairs, the rotunda features a fountain that continues the European ambience.

The dining room is set the way it was when Donald Trump dined here.

It’s surprising to find there are just four bedrooms, but six bathrooms and two half-baths in this two-story home,with opulent living areas—with or without furniture, the place looks very palatial thanks to the detailed iron railings, chandeliers, and elegant moulding. It is 16 years old, but looks new due to the recent facelift.

The lot is large, too, at 30,855 square feet. This affords the space for a tropically landscaped garden that leads to a pool with a rock waterfall, and a deck spacious enough for entertaining large parties.

If you have 9,768,566.79 euros, this Frenchy mansion can be yours. And maybe you, too, can live "the lifestyles of the rich and famous." (Click here for details.)
