The former home of the late fashion designer Geoffrey Beene is now on the market in Honolulu for $14 million, complete with walls of glass allowing for panoramic ocean views from almost every room and access to 122 feet of sandy beach frontage. Situated at the base of Diamond Head—just five minutes from Waikiki—this stunning Malibu-style residence originally was designed by architect John Edwards and built in 1988, and then underwent an extensive $3 million renovation in 2016.
Expect almost 5,000 square feet of contemporary living space on three levels featuring imported limestone, stainless-steel doors, and Fleetwood glass windows and doors throughout. Among the highlights: a sumptuous master retreat with a large, walk-in closet boasting custom closet systems and an adjacent storage area that can be used as a safe room. There’s also an elevator, sound and photovoltaic solar systems, and a Jacuzzi overlooking the ocean.
