This Week’s Open House Pick: Vintage Makiki


To find a home that sits on nearly an acre of land in Makiki Heights is rare. This coupled with the fact that the home is a lovingly maintained, turn-of-the-century dwelling, and you’ve got yourself something of a find. The 95-year-old residence sits on an expansive 35,510-sq.-ft. lot in lower Makiki Heights, and captures city, Diamond Head and mountain views. The main residence has four bedrooms and two baths, while the detached cottage has two bedrooms and one bath, for a total of 3,542 square feet of livable space. The main house also features a large front lanai with dramatic stone columns.While the property has been well cared for over the years, a bit of updating would go a long way in restoring the home to its original glory. The house is listed for $3,250,000.

Open house: Sun., March 20, 2 to 5 p.m.
