Diamond Head listing from Elite Pacific Properties combines the best of old and new Hawaii

Sponsored by Elite Pacific Properties

If you’re looking for a home that’s the perfect mix of new and old Hawaii, look no further than this Diamond Head listing from Elite Pacific Properties. HI Now host is with co-founder and principal broker Stephen Cipres to talk more about the special property.

This home is in a neighborhood where the iconic face of Diamond Head reminds you that you’re somewhere truly special. On top of the incredible scenery, you’re also close to restaurants, shopping, beaches, and just moments from the heart of Waikiki.

The Diamond Head property has three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. It was designed in 1938 by Albert Ely Ives, who was known for his mastery of Hawaiian architecture. His design elements were perfectly updated by architect Nancy Peacock so that the home now has this incredible marriage of old Hawaii and new. It really captures the essence of Hawaiian style, with a unique balance of indoor and outdoor spaces.

The home is extremely private. It has a gated entrance with beautiful carved doors that welcome you into a peaceful courtyard with gorgeous gardens. The home is designed so that much of it seems to flow toward the courtyard and gardens, so you feel as if you’re in your own world inside. It has several covered lanais, shade trees, and a pool, so there are lots of ways to enjoy the outdoor spaces.

The home really conveys a sense of calm inside as well. You enter into the main living space through the original sliding doors and then you have all the elements you’d want in a Hawaiian home such as high ceilings, lots of windows, and walls of glass doors. It also has all the modern luxury finishes buyers are looking for. The kitchen, for example, has custom cabinetry, granite counters, and beautiful flooring.
