Seriously, townies. Staying in metro Honolulu means you have to pay a price, and usually that price is upward of $1 million, especially if you want a single-family home. Today’s open house pick is under a million, and it’s a home … with a yard … in Kaimukī. Imagine that.



Most homes in the area tend to be old, but this one is newer, built in 1987. It’s got three bedrooms and two bathrooms with 1,392 square feet of living area on a 3,528-square-foot lot and the high cathedral ceilings make it seem larger when you’re inside. It’s been fully upgraded with a newly renovated kitchen, granite countertops, new cabinets and stainless steel appliances, new carpet and laminate flooring, new interior and exterior paint, split air conditioning, landscaped yard and a finished basement.



The home was custom built to stand out a little more amid the rest of the boxy houses, and has double-wall construction to ensure its stability for years to come. The large picture windows bring in lots of natural light, and the skylight windows in the bathroom make it feel like you’re showering in the moonlight.



This part of Kaimukī is very close to everything: Kapi‘olani Community College, Kāhala Mall, popular restaurants and fitness events. The 18th Avenue area is also known as the “new Ocean View Tract” because it offers ocean and mountain views with consistent breezes.


This home will be open from 2 to 5 p.m. this Sunday, March 6. Click here for details.


Happy house hunting!
