Just a five-minute drive up Aiea Heights, Wilhelmina Rise or Waialae Iki, you can find a home that’s not only got beautiful views, but backs up to world-class hiking and preservation land. The homes at the top of these popular ridges are all for sale.

This Maunalani Circle home was originally built in 1936, but it’s been extensively modified and upgraded in the 80 years since. It’s an estate for sure, built on three contiguous lots with a total of 50,111 square feet of land and over 6,000 square feet of living space. Before entering, we didn’t know that the ridge dipped low again beyond the homes, providing this home with a mauka view almost as stunning as the makai and city lights views. Large covered lanais surround the home, making it an entertainer’s paradise. It could use a facelift, but the property and layout can’t be beat.

5017 Maunalani Circle. Listed for $3,750,000 (MLS 201616681, listed by Coldwell Banker’s Michael Kwack.)

The last house on Waialae Iki feels like it’s in its own private park. All that is past it is the trailhead to hike along the ridge to the top of the Koolaus. There are 4,823 square feet of home on this one-acre lot , and every room has a view – Diamond Head, city and forest. The home has four bedrooms, large entertaining spaces and lanais and a workshop for the handy member of the family. It’s one of the newer homes in Waialae Iki, built in 2000.

2390 Okoa Street. Listed for $4,380,000 (MLS 201601895, listed by Carlyne Dick)
