Open House Pick of the Week: This Rare Diamond Head Home Designed by Vladimir Ossipoff Could Be Yours For $2.9 Million

Mid-century Ossipoff home has modern touches on classic design.


If you know about architecture, you know that owning a home designed by famed architect Vladimir Ossipoff is rare and desired. This new listing on Diamond Head is one of those rare opportunities.



“I remember hearing that when the house was being designed, Mr. Ossipoff choose not to dynamite out the existing coral stone mounds to create a flat lot, like many of the surrounding homes did,” says homeowner. “Instead, he tucked the house behind the coral mounds to create privacy from the street.”



The mid-century home was built in 1963 with Ossipoff’s signature “Hawaiian modern” design highlighting clean lines, natural light and ventilation, and an open, airy layout. It has 1,974 square feet of living area that flows to a large, 11,922-square-foot lot, so there’s lots of room to spread out.



There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms in the house, updated with Miele appliances, a Sub-Zero fridge, Ann Sacks tile, Hansgrohe fixtures and more. The owners would probably not have let this home go, if not for a move to the Mainland.

This home will be open on Sunday, October 26, from 2 to 5 p.m. For more information, click here.
