Upgraded townhouse in Kaneohe

When realtor/owner Kai Brown of Prudential Locations LLC was describing the perks of her newly listed three-bedroom, two-bath townhouse at Puu Alii in Kaneohe, she told me about the views of the Koolau Mountains from the unit. “The sunsets are just beautiful.” Then she joked, “If I keep talking about it, I may not want to sell it.”

It’s that kind of sentiment that can make you feel good about purchasing a home. You know the owners cared about the place they lived in and truly enjoyed their time there.

Brown also made sure to keep the things up-to-date with a complete kitchen renovation and other upgrades last year. In addition to changing the original floor plan, granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances and ceramic tile flooring were installed in the open-design kitchen.

The upgrades include split A/C with two outdoor compressors, in order to have a unit in each room, energy-efficient solar attic fans, new paint and new carpeting. Plus the attic is now semi-finished to allow for extra storage.

The master suite is adjacent to the living area with sliding wooden window shutters that can be shut for privacy when you’re entertaining or left open at night to allow for maximum air flow. Within the suite, a short hallway with two sets of double closets leads to the master bath.

The maintenance fee, which covers sewer and water, is reasonable at $587 a month.

The Puu Alii complex, which is spread over 55 acres, features three pools, a hot tub and sauna, two tennis courts, a jogging path, a large park-like grassy area and 24-hour security. There’s also a picnic area with tables that you can reserve for parties or family gatherings.

Fuzz factor: Let the fur fly, dogs and cats are allowed.

The townhouse comes with a one-car garage and there’s plenty of room to park a second car in the driveway. For guests, there are nine stalls directly across from the unit. Click here for details.

Money talk: $435,000 fee simple
