East Honolulu home seekers (and dwellers) know that Queen’s Gate, a gated golf-course community near Sandy Beach, is one of the most desirable spots in which to live. It’s a miracle we have a listing there this week—the only one available—and it happens to be listed by fellow blogger Jaymes Song.


This 2,004-square-foot executive home sits on a 7,517-square-foot lot in a quiet cul-de-sac fronting Hawai‘i Kai Golf Course. The large yard makes it great for entertaining; since the home is near the 15th tee box, you don’t have to worry about golfers like (ahem) Jaymes accidentally hitting your house.



There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms and a den in this single-level home. It was built in 1978 but nicely remodeled, with a wide-open living area featuring cove ceilings and bamboo flooring. The kitchen has granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances; the master bath has vessel sinks, a free-standing tub, a walk-in shower and travertine flooring.



For comparison on value: There are three other Queen’s Gate listings in escrow, priced at $1,299,000, $1,349,000 and $1,250,000. (It is unknown at what price they went into escrow.)


The home’s first open house will be this Sunday, Aug. 2, from 1 to 5 p.m. (an extra hour longer than other open houses). Click here for details.


Happy house hunting!
