Open house pick of the week: Diamond Head

There’s a lot of hype over the new Hawaii Five-0, but the writers added a brilliant bit of nostalgia this past seasonwhen they re-introduced Ed Asner as diamond smuggler August March from the original series.

If you're into television history—or Island designs by a classic Hawaii architect—this new listing may be for you. (Click here for details.)

This home was built in 1967, designed by Ed Sullam to take advantage of Hawaii’s unique indoor/outdoor living and the natural tradewinds. The sellers are the original owners and have meticulously maintained it to preserve its timeless Island style.

It was used in two episodes of the original Hawaii Five-0 series involving an opium dealer (realtor Dan Ihara doesn’t know the exact episodes, but the owners can tell you). Perhaps this can be used in flashback for the current series? One could only hope.

It’s got six bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in a spacious 3,619-square-foot residence. The lot is a huge 10,029 square feet, so the yard includes a large covered lanai and tiled pool. Since it’s on the slopes of Diamond Head, it offers city, mountain, ocean and Kokohead views.

The first open house is this Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. Happy house hunting! Or should we say ... "Book ‘em, Danno."

Money talk: $2,450,000 fee simple
