A sophisticated Kahala retreat

If you're like me, you've driven or jogged past this property on Farmers Road in Kahala and wondered what's behind the remote gates and privacy walls. Well, now it's for sale, so you can get a peek. (Click here for details.)

The MLS says that it's 57 years old, but the structure was completely rebuilt in 2007 and renovated in 2011. The sprawling, 11,874-square-foot lot is located on a large corner with two entrances: The main one fronts Farmers Road and the other is on Noio Street.

Inside the gates, the yard is large enough to create your own little putting green. The U-shaped home surrounds the pool and heated Jacuzzi, with a covered lanai that's wide enough for entertaining.

One nice thing is the airiness of the house; the spacious entryway opens to a large living room to the left and pocket doors give you the option to bring the outdoor in. This living area leads to a large dining room, eat-in breakfast counter and gourmet kitchen.

The home is 4,335 square feet with five bedrooms, all on a single level and each with its own full bath and walk-in closet. Due to the secure walls and the residence’s unusual shape, it offers quite a bit of privacy for this fairly active area in Kahala.

There will be a broker's open this Wednesday from 9:30 a.m. to noon with refreshments. It's the one and only open house, if you want to see it in person.

Money talk: $2,795,000 fee simple
