2465 Ala Wai Blvd, Penthouse 2

Honolulu, HI 96815

Some people buy houses that demand a ton of work. They buy them cheap because they need to fund their DIY home renovations. These people will sweat, bleed, and devote all of their free time to their houses … their “projects.”

Other people have kids, pets, or simply hell to raise. They don’t need their home to be a never ending repair project. They have no intention of working all day so they can come home and work all night, too. They value their time and the freedom of “fully modernized & move-in-ready.”

This penthouse is a dream for the latter group.

Offered at $1.5M

Sunny • Sparkling • Secluded

By now you’ve noticed that this home is bright, upbeat, open, and lively. With walls of glass that open wide to a rainbow lanai (3-sided, wrap-around style), there are very few barriers to movement here. An open concept great room and central kitchen give you flexibility in furnishing arrangements (or buy it furnished as is, talk to your Realtor®) and you’ll never lose that feeling of gathering ’round the kitchen that people love … whether it’s a huge crowd or just you. Oh, and when added privacy or extra shade is in order, the rolling blinds come in very handy for creating any level of privacy you need. Plus, they just look good. Life here is both envigorating and restful … all on your schedule.

In The Details

full color, full size images are visible in the hd gallery above

Touch of Class

A original Lightolier® from NYC has traveled the country (and the decades). How perfectly it fits into this fully modernized home in a mid-century modern building.

#Amirite?

Touch of Glass

With literal walls of glass around you, its wonderful to know that every piece has been replaced with semi-reflective, low-e, shaded safety/privacy glass, huh?

Solid as a Rock

Caesarstone® quarts surfaces are as durable as they are lovely, especially when they “waterfall” like in the kitchen island (and backsplash).

Fire that doesn't burn?

OK, ok, yes, you could burn yourself by touching this hot stove. But with this Bosch® induction cooktop, you’ll have to be very fast & intentional to do so.

Dimmable Daylight

Hunter Douglas® roller shades on every window both increase privacy at night and give you fine control of how much direct sunlight you want during the day.

Lit by Design, not accident

While the walls of glass do most of the heavy lifting as far as light/shadow play here, magical moments exist even when there are no windows near. 

now Arriving at Gate ...

We love a bit of industrial flourish in 2021 and these smart fans by Big Ass Fans® with their triple airfoils do just the trick.

Like a prayer

If cleanliness truly is next to godliness, then you’ll be in heaven with the Toto® bidet-enabled owner’s suite throne. Plus, it’s has a “green” dual flush system. The earth thanks you.

modernity

Have you ever experienced a child-like wonder when water disappears from the surface of an artful public splash pad? Yeah … that.

Fine Fixtures

Doesn’t great design feel great? These wall-mounted faucets by AXOR Citteria® are so sleek and simple that they’re sexy. 

A place for all

Basically all of the original cabinetry in the home was removed and upgraded to California Closet soft-close that was customized to fit.

Climate Control

Thank goodness we aren’t Portland or Seattle with blistering temps in the 100 & teens. But just in case, central AC is a welcomed feature.

Seal of approval

Really, nothing beats the look and sand-, spill-, waterproofing of a floor sealed in modern tiles. We love the uninterrupted look of the wood grain styling throughout the house.

The Big Guns

Bosch® – Whirlpool® – Samsung® – Thermador® … what more can we say? They are in da haus and they need no introduction!

Love thy neighbor

Ready to make some new friends? Build a broader community? Start here at the Fairway Manor pool deck where life is easy breezy.

Where you need it

Recessed can lighting & a handsomely uplit soffit has replaced the dated wall sconces. The look is clean; the illumination is comprehensive.

Safety First

This home is prepped with a front door keypad entry deadbolt. No more dragging your house key into the ocean. Whoa, right‽ 

#interrobang

USB Outlets

How homebuilders don’t think to install these standard yet is … uh … nobody’s problem anymore. At least, not here, anyway.

Prep time

Shall I go call the elevator for you? Oh! Never mind. I forgot, you can call it from inside your home and it’ll be ready and waiting for you … lickity split.

the air, the whole air, & nothing but the air

When huge sections of your glass walls slide open to the warm tropical breeze … that’s awesome! When every bird and bee wants to hang out in your home … not so much. New screens doors … yay!

METROPICAL LIVING

With a home that flies high over Waikiki – the beating heart of Honolulu – almost every reason people visit Hawaii is just below your feet and right before your eyes.

Though street noise is much too far below to be heard thru the virtually soundproof glass, the sights of America’s only tropical urban center surround you. If you love to watch city lights twinkle in the twilight or are inspired by a metropolitan skyline backed by a tropical turquoise ocean, there are no better homes for you than this. Forget buildings on the beach! [#Amirite]  Looming threat of sea level rise flooding aside, do you know what you see out your windows for nearly 12 hours every day? A black void. Empty nothingness. Unbroken boredom. Seriously, even if you sleep 8 of the dark hours you’re still stuck staring into the nothingness for 25% of your waking life, day after day, year after year. BUT, move just 6 blocks off the beach to Fairway Manor and everything is better. In addition to Penthouse #2’s view from Diamond Head Crater to Punchbowl Crater, from the Ko’olau Mountains to the tropical Pacific, you’ll also have the wonderful skyline as a dramatic backdrop to your evenings. Always something to see, PLUS, you can access all of the activites, eateries, shows, events, beaches and surf spots in an instant … yet, retire high above it all just as quickly.

What are you waiting for?
