A hidden gem in St. Louis

Tucked into the Saint Louis High School and Chaminade University complex just off Waialae Avenue, the Regency Park condominium gives the feeling of being away from the hustle and bustle of the city with the scent of eucalyptus in the air and a two-acre private park on the property.

Built in 1981, this gated community is made up of two separate buildings on more than seven acres. Its location scores a “very walkable” 80 out of 100 on Walkscore.com – it’s short trek to the University of Hawaii at Manoa or if you head in the other direction restaurants and shops such as Town and Tamura’s are within a 15-minute walk.

The three-bedroom units don’t come on the market often at Regency Park which makes this ground-floor condo with two baths fairly rare ­– especially because it comes with its own yard offering a grassy play area for kids and pets. Click here for details.

The owners have kept the 1,249-square-foot condo in terrific condition and recently put in new kitchen countertops and appliances, in addition to new cabinets in the bathrooms.

“They absolutely love the building and are just downsizing,” says realtor Kim Balisacan of Prudential Advantage Realty. “They are actually hoping to find a two-bedroom here after they sell this one.”

For extra hot days, there are two A/C window units, but since it’s located on the cool, quiet side of the building you shouldn’t have to turn them on too often.

Fuzz factor: You can have up to two dogs or cats.

The price includes two assigned parking stalls, one covered and one open. No need to worry about guest parking either, there are 22 spaces.

Amenities include a swimming pool, barbecue and picnic areas, a tennis court, an exercise room and a recreation area.

You can check out the condo for yourself on Sunday, July 22, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
