Just above the Honolulu Museum of Art Spalding House on Mount Tantalus, there’s a quiet cul-de-sac with a gem of a house on the market for the first time. The Loo Residence at 2727 Kolonahe Place was designed by midcentury architect Vladimir Ossipoff and, although it’s been updated, it maintains the simple lines and thoughtful elements for which he was famous. There are only six homes on the small street, all surrounded by preservation land. When you enter the property, you immediately see Diamond Head, beautifully framed by the home as you look right through it.

The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home has 3,189 square feet of living area and is situated on a 10,292-square-foot lot. Built in 1953, it was owned by Cyrus and Amy Loo, a prominent Honolulu doctor and his wife, who lived there into their 90s. It’s now on the market for the first time. Wide expanses of glass blend indoor and outdoor spaces, and the home features sleek lines and natural materials consistent with midcentury modern design.
