I was at a sunset open house for this Imperial Plaza penthouse recently and—as I was gawking at the spaciousness—someone remarked that, for the same price, one could get a luxury home somewhere. It never occurred to me to compare it to a single-family home, since I’m one of those people who probably would never want to maintain a yard or deal with other exterior worries.


So, for those who are like me and want maintenance and security taken care of, this listing is for you. It’s a rarely available split-level condo, with 3,853 square feet of living area and another 225 square feet of lānai area.



There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms; two of the bedrooms are master bedrooms, since they are the same size and both have large, upgraded modern bathrooms with … interesting showers (I won’t spoil the surprise for when you see it).



The second story overlooks part of the open living/kitchen area downstairs, which makes it fun for entertaining. Upstairs, the bar area is flanked by two outdoor lānai so you can take in 180-degree views of Diamond Head, the city, ocean and Ko‘olau mountains.


The unit includes lots of storage and three parking spaces, and features floor-to-ceiling glass windows.

Happy house hunting!
