New guide to Honolulu's luxurious Kahala neighborhood delves into fascinating history and exciting present-day developments, Sandwich Isles Realty reports
Honolulu, HI -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/30/2015 -- Sandwich Isles Realty, Hawaii's leading luxury home real estate agency, published a new online guide to the Kahala neighborhood of Honolulu. Known as the "Beverly Hills of Hawaii" since the state's elite began putting up mansions there in the 1950s and 1960s, Kahala remains a top destination for those seeking the most luxurious housing that Hawaii has to offer. The new Sandwich Isles Realty guide to the neighborhood will provide readers with everything they need to know about one of the most desirable places to live in Hawaii, including recent developments that have put over two dozen high-end properties on the market.
"An important part of what we do here is educating buyers about the unique histories and characters of neighborhoods all over Oahu and Maui," Sandwich Isles Realty Broker in Charge Kimo Smigielski said, "Our new guide to the famed Kahala neighborhood is the latest in a series of online resources that make it easy for anyone to come up to speed. We're proud to be able to offer it to visitors to our website and confident that those who read it are going to find it interesting and useful."
Home to around two-thirds of Hawaii's residents, as well as the state's capital and largest city in the form of Honolulu, the island of Oahu has long been a focal point for local business and political elites. Starting around 60 years ago, many of Hawaii's most prominent entrepreneurs, corporate leaders, and others of substantial financial means began congregating along a stretch of Oahu's southwestern coastline known as Kahala. Many of the impressive mansions they put up remain today, often in substantially remodeled form, having been joined since by homes of similar stature but more recent vintage.
With such an impressive concentration of high-end homes, Kahala has been widely known as the "Beverly Hills of Hawaii" for decades. In recent years, the divestiture of his Kahala holdings by a prominent investor named Genshiro Kawamoto put 27 world-class properties on the market, greatly opening up the neighborhood to others. The new Sandwich Isles Realty guide to Kahala details these facts and many more, including such present-day basics as the top-quality schools, golf courses, and other amenities that residents enjoy.
In addition to regularly publishing neighborhood guides and other informative real estate-related resources, Sandwich Isles Realty maintains the most complete listings of high-end homes and condominiums on Oahu and Maui. The agency's Diamond Head Homes For Sale include dozens of properties lying near the foot of the dramatic mountain that is widely recognized as Hawaii's single most impressive natural feature.
The Sandwich Isles Realty collection of kakaako condos for sale includes properties that combine an impressive level of affordability with truly luxurious condominium living in the heart of Honolulu. These listings and many more can be found at Sandislehawaii.com, where the newly published guide to the Kahala neighborhood is also now online.
