The winning listing

Only 20 minutes from Waikiki, this Paiko Lagoon estate is surrounded by 700 feet of water frontage, with Kānewai Fishpond on the left and a stream that opens to Paiko Lagoon, a sanctuary for migratory birds, on the right. Kānewai Fishpond is one of the last functioning shoreline fishponds in Honolulu. Listed on the State and National Historic Registers, it is also one of Oahu's few remaining royal ponds. The pond's history spans almost a thousand years, evidenced by the many water gourds and fishing artifacts discovered there. It was also likely the site of the first European visit to Oahu in 1786 by Captain Portlock. Paiko Lagoon is a designated wildlife sanctuary that provides a habitat for the Hawaiian Stilt and other migratory water birds. A former fishpond, the lagoon is fed by freshwater springs and the Kuliouou stream.

The home was designed by world-renowned architect Vladimir Ossipoff in 1964. Known as the “master of Hawaiian architecture,” Ossipoff was inspired by the interaction of indoor and outdoor spaces, and his aesthetic combines Japanese building techniques with modern architecture. 

Whether entertaining family and friends by the pool, or just enjoying its tranquil setting, this modern Paiko Lagoon home offers Old Hawaii ambiance.
