Lots of options with this Manoa home

Most homes—especially older ones—are geared toward a specific buyer, but this one in Manoa is versatile enough to match different kinds of people. (Click here for details.)

It’s a 10,363-square-foot property in a cul-de-sac with fewer than 10 homes, so it’s in its own little community. The yard has extensive tropical landscaping and features lychee, mango and banana trees.

The 2,277-square-foot residence is located at the top of the lot, so it gets tradewinds gently blowing through, a plus for saving energy. The home is two stories, with a layout that makes it “ohana eligible.” Upstairs, there are two bedrooms and one bathroom; downstairs, there are three bedrooms and one bath. Both stories have their own outside entrances so you could close them off from each other. You can also have separate meters installed to completely divide the home’s residents.

If you keep it united, the home is good for entertaining or having overnight guests, or gives families the space togrow. The floor plan is open to give the owner flexibility on setting up living space.

There is an interior staircase from the carport to the house, so getting from your car to the home is covered, which is probably appreciated on rainy days such as today.
