Grand Puu Panini Estate
It’s rare to find homes in Hawaii with European touches that are both tasteful and blend into the Island lifestyle. This home on Panini Circle brings the elements of Hawaii, Asia, and Europe into one estate. (Click here for details.)
It’s located in a part of the Puu Panini neighborhood that has a private park and tennis court—like its own little association. When you approach the house, the enclosed garden area features warm red brick walls and an archway, reminiscent of Italian villas.
Inside the 5,615-square-foot, five-bedroom home, most of the rooms have contemporary elements with rich hardwood floors, custom doors and windows, high ceilings and both casual and formal living areas.
There is one room, currently used as a dining room, that reflects the Italian garden and archway outside, but it works with the modern design. It looks so new, though, you probably can’t tell the home is 37 years old.
Interestingly enough, one of the 5.5 bathrooms is totally Japanese style, with a furo and bathing area.
The parcel is almost 23,000 square feet, with a pool and a gigantic area for cars, in case you want to entertain.
Money talk: $4,380,000 fee simple
