Kaneohe is located just few miles from Kailua. This community is a tropical nirvana wedged between the incredible cathedral spires of the Ko'olau mountains and the turquoise opalescence of Kaneohe Bay. The exotic Ho'omaluhia Botanical Gardens is a breathtaking place to experience. Kaneohe has approximately 40,000 residents. This is the home of Marine Corps Air Station. There are schools, library, recreation centers, golfing, dining and shopping at the local "Windward Mall". This is a wonderful town to raise a family.
KANEOHE'S "HALE KOU" area sits right under the Koolau Mountains, with the exotic "Ho'omaluhia Botanical Gardens" as its neighbor. So with most homes in this area, you will have these towering majestic mountains to enjoy as your view. Most homes in this area are quite old, however recently there has been some vacant lots, and tear down properties purchased with the intention of revitalizing the area with new homes.
There currently are only 5 active properties for sale between $399k-$1,029,000 in Kaneohe's Hale Kou area. The higher priced properties are the ones that have been newly built. There have been 24 properties sold in this past year with an average selling price of $565k. The lots are around 6500 square feet, and homes 1515 square feet interior.
Recently, I received a phone call from an old friend that made my day! He said, Lila are you still selling real estate? I responded, well of course! He then explained his current situation and requested my assistance. "This was music to my ears" We got together and became re-aquainted, then made arrangements to preview this property. It was history from that point on. Approximately 60 days later, he is the proud owner of this lovely brand spankin new property!!
This property was listed by Benn Pacific Properties. It was listed for $825k, and sold for $815k. It is a 4/3 with a spacious interior of 2237 square feet. This spacious open floor plan is versitile in its usability. Finishes include Brazilian Cherry cabinetry, Granite countertops, a downstairs den that could be used as another bedroom, split air a/c system, laundry room as well as an upstairs bonus room that can be used as a media room or office.
In Hawaii, especially on Oahu's Windward side, it is pretty rare to have the ability to purchase a newly built home such as this one, but from time to time we are fortunate to have this available to us.
If you or someone you know is interested in Oahu real estate. I am happy to assist! Mahalo Lila
