Kaneohe home designed for views
The main structure of this house built into the Lulani Hillside is pretty unusual: It’s boxy on the outside, with a spacious, airy main living area inside. What really caught my eye, however, was the bridge that connects to the second and third bedroom.
“Once people see the home, it all makes sense,” says realtor Miki Blackstad. “The bridge goes over the driveway and is the only logical way to have those extra bedrooms without blocking the view, since the house is built on a hill.” There’s also a studio downstairs, which is more like a one-bedroom apartment, and includes a wetbar.
The master bedroom is located in the main house, which is a plus for privacy. In all, there are four bedrooms and 3.5 baths in the 3,144-square-foot home.
The living room is impressive, with skylights and wall-to-wall windows, which take in the panoramic bay views. The sun room/den is a nice touch—also with a view, but with warmer lighting.
Although the new appliances are nice, the Koa wood floors are most outstanding inside this house. You’ll rarely find this in Island homes anymore, even luxury residences.
“It’s a unique home, but really started getting a lot of attention once I dropped the price about $100,000,” Blackstad adds. (Click here for details.)
One last note: The MLS listing shows that it sits on a large, 55,561-square-foot lot. This is because it’s actually a CPR property, and two other homes are on it.
