Classic architecture with updated luxury.

When this Maunalani Heights home was built in 1931, the neighborhood newsletter called it “one of the most outstanding examples of architecture in the Heights … the living room is also the largest.”



The classic and unique architecture remains, albeit with a complete renovation in 1990 that brought the property up to date. The two-story home has two distinct but asymmetrical sections connected by a covered breezeway leading to the veranda and original terrace.



There’s a lot of space, too: The 2,860-square foot interior opens to a 323-square foot veranda, which opens to the shaded lanai with a landmark tree for shade. In addition, the 10,000-square foot lot is terraced and includes a separate garage and room for a pool.

The home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus a separate cottage/apartment with a bath.

Since it’s situated high on the Heights, you get views of Diamond Head, Kahala, Waikiki and the ocean.


“Matsonia Drive has several original homes that date to the 1930s, making it seem more like Manoa,” says realtor John Peterson.

The home was just listed and will be open this Sunday, Nov. 9, from 2 to 5 p.m. Click here for details.
