Kauai Home Comparison: Two Affordable Princeville 3 Bedroom Homes Under $650,000

Situated literally across the street from each other on a quiet cul-de-sac in the golf resort community of Princeville on Kauai’s idyllic North Shore, there sits 2 identical single-family 3 bedroom homes.

Home Comparison

Although these 2 homes have the same floor plan, they do feel different on the inside due to the significant upgrades that have been done to the home with the higher asking price.

For the buyer who prefers a slightly dated home with great bones who can make some upgrades according to their own personal style, House #1 (MLS# 254787) listed at $549,000 might be for you.

However, for the buyer who wants to purchase a turn-key, fully furnished (complete with a convertible!) home with all the upgrades already tastefully done, House #2 (MLS# 239215) listed at $649,000, is for you!

Floor Plans

Both homes offer an open style floor plan in the main living area, but House #1 has a ground level lanai just off the dining area where House #2 has added an enclosed sitting room, thus creating more indoor living space.

Also, House #1 has an existing half wall intended to divide the living space, where House #2 has removed this in order to create a more open floor plan.

House #1 is a traditional 3 bedroom home; however, the remodel in House #2 opened up the wall between the existing 2 bedrooms and installed wide wooden sliding doors, so it can be used as one large space or closed to separate it off into a “3rd” bedroom.

Kitchen and Bathrooms

House #2 also has an updated kitchen and bathrooms:

Location and View

House #1 sits on the corner, while House #2 is a little more tucked away in the cul-de-sac. To truly appreciate the potential in either one of these great options, you should visit these properties and decide for yourself.

Soooo…to save the money on House #1 and make it your own, or to buy the turn-key, already remodeled House #2? That is the question…

Cate, great side by side comparison. Love the upgrades in House #2, but House #1 offers a blank canvas to make your own.
