Diamond Head Oahu Luxury Home with Detailing of a Historic Hawaii Home 

This is a fabulous, luxury Diamond Head home, built in 2007, with beautiful features at every turn. This Honolulu real estate on Noela Drive in one of Honolulu’s best neighborhoods is one of the most gorgeous homes I have ever seen on Oahu. I first visited this Diamond Head home when it was newly built and listed for sale in July of 2007. It was impressive then, and it is impressive now.  Only now, it is listed at a more attractive price of $9,000,000 versus the $11,900,000 price tag it originally had. I am told that the new price does not even cover the land and construction costs.

This Diamond Head home is ideally located: close to the beach, shopping and more, yet is a private Oasis. This 9,770 square foot Oahu luxury home sits on a huge tropically landscaped 28,962 square foot lot, featuring stunning views of the ocean and Waikiki coastline, including Kapiolani Park.  It has a wide front porch, bringing back the gracious feeling of Hawaii in days gone by, 5 spacious bedrooms and 7 and 1/2 bathrooms, multiple dining areas, a media room, and an elevator, among its many features. The exterior has period details and a marked, very charming craftsman bungalow historic style … in an updated sense, of course, as most real craftsman bungalows are not this large. Nor would they have so many splendid modern features. It is the best of both worlds with both the historic Oahu home style and new construction. Take a look ….
