Country Club Chic in Kahala

This Kai Nani estate is located on the 7th fairway of the Waialae Country Club.

Kahala’s Kai Nani neighborhood is an intimate enclave of about 30 homes running along the eastern side of Waialae Country Club. Homes here hold their value, due to both the lack of inventory and the big-price-tag-commanding golf course and direct oceanfront locations.

With so much going for the neighborhood, the demand will be high for this four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath Kai Nani estate, which sits on a nearly 13,000-sq.-ft. lot facing the 7th fairway. The floorplan of this classic, “Mainland-style” home is ideal for privacy, with the master suite and fully outfitted bath (two-person shower, Jacuzzi tub), complete with a large veranda overlooking the backyard, occupying the entire second floor.

Three additional bedrooms are located on the first floor, along with two offices, one with beautiful wood built-ins, living room, family room and the kitchen, a solid working space with classic white cabinetry, wood floors and granite counters. All told, the home offers 4,300-plus square feet of livable space, with ample room for golf clubs. Plus, the outdoor area is all about country-club living, with plenty of patio space, a swimming pool and, of course, views of the golf course.

Money talk: The house is listed for $3.7 million.
