Honolulu Mid-Century Home of the Week in St Louis Heights – 2563 Peter Street
Mid-Century Lovers! Here is an almost totally original mid-century view home for you. Open floor plans, so popular now, were invented by, and indeed a hallmark of, mid-century modern homes, and this one is no exception with its lovely, large beamed ceiling great room with another MCM trademark: pickled wood paneled walls.
The kitchen boasts mostly original cabinetry, along with a period-style molded stainless steel sink with dual drainboards and backsplash. Off the great room through a (again, another invention of MCM homes) wall of sliding glass, there is a large lanai with built-in seating and astounding views of the Waikiki Skyline and Diamond Head.
2563 Peter Street, St Louis Heights (MLS# 201704744)
This home has 4 beds and 3 baths in total: 3 bed/2 bath up, and 1 bed/1 bath down with separate entry. The transition between the two is a staircase that features yet another MCM hallmark: utilizing common, everyday materials to create sculptural beauty. In this case, I’m referring to a very special handrail – it is truly a work of art.
The downstairs space has been updated, but with an eye to the original style. There are multiple entertaining areas, including a gated backyard and large open space above the enclosed, 2-car garage.
