Beautiful views in Lower Nuuanu

Located in Lower Nuuanu, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom condo at Craigside offers the convenience of being less than 10 minutes from downtown and the appeal of being in a central location that puts the whole island in easy reach.

Perched on the 24th floor, the unit offers unobstructed views of Punchbowl and the ocean from its large 182-square-foot lanai.

“It’s a unique condo in the sense that each floor has only two units,” says realtor Khai Tran of Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties. The floors are more private with fewer people in the building than other condos that have multiple units on each floor.

The 1,489-square-foot unit, which came on the market last week, boasts nine-foot ceilings, giving the space an airy feel.

The owners, who are downsizing to smaller digs, have kept the condo in great condition and renovated the kitchen a few years ago installing lots of bright-white cabinetry, terrific for storing all of your culinary accoutrements.

There are A/C wall units to keep you cool, along with ceiling fans if you prefer to enjoy the trade winds. There’s also an in-unit full-size washer and dryer.

Designed by architect Norman Lacayo, whose Honolulu credits include Harbor Court and Honolulu Tower Condominium, Craigside’s amenities include a pool, a auna, a BBQ area and a tennis court.

The price includes two covered, side-by-side parking stalls. When guests come to visit, there’s plenty of parking for them as well.

Fuzz factor: The building is pet friendly, so you can bring along the fur kids.

If you’d like to see it for yourself, there’ll be an open house on Sunday, Aug. 12 from 2 to 5 p.m. Click here for details.
