Open House Pick: Designer Kailua Cottage

It’s Friday—time to think about your Sunday house hunting. Here’s my recommendation for your weekend viewing pleasure—a Kailua cottage, owned (and redesigned) by an interior designer-architect power couple.

I don’t know about you, but I am inclined to trust people who seriously know the biz. The house may be listed as a cottage, and in many ways still looks like one, but it’s upgraded with all those perks homebuyers like—swanky bathrooms, one replete with interior design-y touches like a chic chandelier; mod kitchen with stainless steel appliances and something called “soft close” drawers; and a brand new master suite addition.

Just the photo of the bathroom makes me want to buy the house, go in there, lock the door and take a two-hour soak. Perhaps with a glass of bubbly.

That’s my opinion, take it or leave it. Happy house hunting!

Money Talk: $1,000,000, fee simple
