An ocean-adjacent estate in Honolulu’s Portlock neighborhood, a sophisticated contemporary home in Vail, Colorado, and a modern penthouse in San Diego’s Bankers Hill neighborhood.
Portlock, Honolulu | 5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms
The 2007-built home on a quarter-acre lot is located a stone’s throw away from the beach in the Portlock community on the island of Oahu. The two-story home pays homage to Hawaii’s Territorial era of the early 1900s with its overhanging eaves and wrap-around lanais overlooking the swimming pool.
The main floor living spaces are outfitted with disappearing floor-to-ceiling mahogany doors that blend indoor-outdoor areas. Vaulted Balinese-style ceilings, wide-plank pine floors and a chef’s kitchen with high-end appliances are among other features of note.
