New North Shore listings

Whether you're a surfer or not, you may be heading out to the North Shore sometime this winter to check out the legendary waves that draw the best surfers in the world here. The annual Vans Triple Crown has named its winners, but there are still surf-related events going on through December 20 that are of interest to locals and visitors.

If you're into surf culture or are just interested in the unique North Shore lifestyle, you may want to stop by these new listings.

This three-bedroom, two-bathroom home in Sunset/Velzy is across the street from one of the best-known surf spots on Oahu. The house was built in 1943, but has been renovated in recent years to look and operate like new. It's 1,773 square feet over two stories on a large-ish, 4,700-square-foot lot, so there's a nice-sized yard for non-surf activity. (Click here for details.)

This surf cottage is small, but the lot is huge: It's a one-story, 991-square-foot home on a 5,658-square-foot property at Sunset Point. It's got three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and new cedar shingles covering the entire house, which gives it a real rustic look. No carpet here-you don't want to be traipsing sand into the house-and a nice deck for lounging, post-surf. (Click here for details.)

Whereas the previous two are older, this custom-built Pupukea mansion is just five years old. A detached studio is included in the four bedrooms and four bathrooms, all under 3,004 square feet of living area. The home is two stories (plus a basement) and sits on more than an acre of land with a pool, tropical trees and colorful foliage. (Click here for details.)
