Kailua townhouse like a single family home
If you’re looking for the feel of a single family home, but don’t want to deal with the hassle of yard work and maintenance, consider this two-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath corner townhouse at Kukilakila in Kailua. The townhouse community on Enchanted Lake (or Kaelepulu Pond, its seldom-used Hawaiian name), offers a quiet atmosphere with a park-like setting on more than 10 acres.
“The whole complex is very special,” says realtor Rachel Barnette of Prudential Advantage Realty. Aside from Bluestone, it’s the only property in Kailua that offers townhomes with garages. Plus its location puts you within walking distance to the middle of town should you need to take a quick trip to the grocery store or the bank.
This particular unit is rare in that it’s an open design on a single level – something to consider if you’re thinking about making this your retirement home. Many others in the complex are on two floors.
The owners recently renovated the bathrooms, installed new flooring, screens, screen doors and light fixtures, and applied a fresh coat of paint throughout. They also restained the kitchen cabinets giving them a mini facelift.
Two private courtyards flank the front and back of the townhouse – one where there’s room to dine al fresco with guests and enjoy the evening breezes.
For kayakers and stand-up paddlers, you can launch from a boat ramp and take yourself around the pond or, if you’re particularly adventurous, paddle to Kailua Bay. There are also walking paths on the property, along with a pool, a club house and a BBQ area.
Fuzz factor: Good news, animal lovers, furry friends are allowed.
You can check out the townhouse in person on Thursday at a brokers’ open house from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. (it’s open to the public) or on Sunday, July 22, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Click here for details.
