A Prized Diamond Head Home In Oahu



Home to generations of Hawaiian-born residents, this exceptional oceanfront estate in Oahu’s coveted Diamond Head area was extensively renovated in 2016 (and again in 2019) to propel it to lofty status as one of the most idyllic properties in all of Honolulu.

Think 9,000-plus square feet of lavish living space on three levels—punctuated by hand-crafted appointments and glass-walled rooms offering jaw-dropping views of the Pacific—along with more than a half-acre of elaborate outdoor environs boasting access to 183 linear feet of ocean frontage, a pool and spa enveloped by lush tropical surroundings, plentiful lanais and much more.

“This is true luxury living on one of Honolulu’s most famed coastlines,” says Tracy Allen, who is listing the residence for $21.5 million.

“The lineage of prominent kama’aina families who have lived there since it was originally built symbolizes the rarity of it.”

Nestled behind gates at 3249 Diamond Head Road, the property greets with a circular entry and stately porte cochère flanked by a green grotto and cascading water features. Once inside the six-bedroom home, an open floor plan is highlighted by special touches throughout, including an elevator, and windows, staircases and doorways adorned with etched glass.

Among the standout features: a formal living room with hardwood flooring, soaring ceiling and stone fireplace, and a family/media room with custom cabinetry.

A professional chef’s kitchen wows with granite countertops, high-end appliances, and a breakfast nook, while an opulent master retreat sports dual baths as well as a cedar-lined, walk-in closet and dressing room.
