Kailua property has everything in one spot

I was going to save this Aikahi Park property for tomorrow’s open house pick of the week, but just got notice that the price was reduced a few hours ago, so I thought I’d tell you about it now. It’s a unique property for the area, and rare for a home to be in such a quiet neighborhood despite being convenient to so many things.

This 1,440-square-foot home was built in 1979, but has been extensively updated since the current owner purchased it in 1995. It looks like a Malibu home, with an open design that includes three bedrooms, two baths, a modern kitchen and living room that opens to the pool. The front double doors face the nearby ocean, so you get onshore breezes from Kailua Bay. (Click here for details.)

The exterior element that catches your eye is the porte-cochere styled circular driveway that passes under and through the carport with entry and exit on both sides, so you don’t need to back out your car.  It’s so big, in fact, there is room for three cars and a boat. The monier tile roof and manicured lawn with palm trees are also reminiscent of Southern California living.

It’s one of the larger lots in the area, spanning about 9,315 square feet. A detached studio cottage—at 528 square feet—was built in 2007, with vaulted ceilings, cherry hardwood floors and granite countertops.

The pool and spa are tiled with sea life including dolphins, turtles, and tropical fish.  The fully fenced backyard also has a flagstone deck, grassy area and storage shed. 

What’s amazing, though, is that it’s so convenient to so many things: It’s walking distance to the beach via beach access by Kailuana Lp. on Kalaheo; it’s within a couple of blocks to bus stops on Mokapu Blvd. and Kaneohe Bay Dr.; around the block from Aikahi Elementary School and Aikahi Community Park; and around the block (through Aikahi Pl.) is Aikahi Park Shopping Center, which houses Safeway, Tamura’s Fine Wines, Feather and Fur Animal Clinic and more.

This house will be open on Sunday, so have a  look if you are in the area.
