Just minutes from Downtown Honolulu, west of Nuuanu, you will find the neighborhood of Alewa Heights, one of the island’s oldest. Because it is well-established and boasts a long history, this charming community encompasses many remarkable homes, some of which were constructed in the 1920s and 1930s. These architectural gems include plantation-style homes, mixed in with mid-century modern houses, as well as homes undergoing total remodels, and new construction. The neighborhood is an excellent choice for homebuyers, not only because of its real estate but also because of its proximity to Downtown Honolulu and the main campus of Kamehameha School, Kapalama.
The main artery of the community is Alewa Drive, and the neighborhood begins at North School Street and stretches up to Kapalama Ridge. Among the many advantages of buying real estate in Alewa Heights is the 360-degree views afforded by its elevation. You can see the sparkling waters of Honolulu Harbor and the Pacific, all the way from Pearl Harbor, south to Diamond Head. The neighborhood has lush mountains on the northeast and overlooks Downtown Honolulu to the south, Kalihi Valley on the west, and the Oahu Country Club and the Nuuanu Valley on the east.
This is a very diverse community, and its diversity is seen in Alewa Heights’ real estate. Alewa Heights properties include Mediterranean Revival, American Craftsman bungalows, mid-century modern Hawaii-style homes, and Plantation-style houses as well. You’ll find homes for sale here with stucco siding and gabled roofs, as well as open, minimalist houses, and low-profile wood-framed homes with large porticos and vertical wood plank siding. Listing prices for homes for sale in Alewa Heights fall in a broad range and depend on the house’s unique features, age, size, condition, and location.
