Custom built in Lanikai

The Lanikai loop is an interesting place to take a jog or bike ride, as you can see many interesting houses in addition to the world-class beach scenery. Just a block from the beach, you'll find this newish, custom-built home-hard to miss, and worth a visit. (Click here for details.)

The yard is huge; the whole lot is 12,188 square feet and features mature fruit trees. The front is expansive and provides an unobstructed view from the upper floors of the home.

Built in 2007, the residence has three levels, totaling 1,892 square feet of living area. The downstairs includes a large, open deck with an area for lounging. It has a separate guest suite with its own kitchenette and full bath. In fact, the roomy guest bath has newly installed granite counters and maple cabinets.

The master bedroom, which is, of course, on the top floor, offers sunrise and ocean views. It has a walk-in closet with lots of elbow room.

The newly installed, solid-granite counter tops complement the new kitchen cabinets-lots of counter space for cooking, lots of cabinets for storage.

Best of all, the price was just reduced by $200,000, so perhaps it's a little more affordable for some of you.
