Head for the Heights … Kam Heights

In light of this past weekend’s tsunami scare, I’m sure a lot of people are looking into living higher and/or farther inland so they don’t have to evacuate every time the sirens go off. Here’s a brand-new home that’s both. (Click here for details.)

Located in Kamehameha Heights, it’s just below Kamehameha Schools. The city view goes clear out to the ocean, so you can watch the tsunami (or, more likely, the evacuating traffic) from the safety and comfort of your upstairs lanai.

The two-story house is brand new, with 2,623 square feet of living area. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms are upstairs with the main kitchen and dining area.

Downstairs, you’ll find the three-car garage, a bedroom, a den (which can be used as a fourth bedroom) and two full bathrooms. There’s also a wet bar and family room, which makes each level functional on its own. The lower level also has a separate entry on the side, making this house perfect for extended family.

The lot is 5,133 square feet and is a CPR with no maintenance fee.

Money talk: $869,000 fee simple
