Stunning Views, Modern Finishes With True Midcentury Bones at 1010 Wilder Avenue
Before the luxe condos of Kaka‘ako and Ala Moana area, before even Kahala became the in-demand address it is today, there was one place that the elite kama‘aina wanted to be: 1010 Wilder Avenue.
Honolulu Condo with Midcentury Style
This building comes by its midcentury style — from its pool and landscaping to the expansive lanais and its oversized copper entry doors in the lobby — the honest way: it was built in 1974.
Great Location and Views
Situated in the Makiki Heights/Lower Tantalus area, 1010 Wilder Avenue — a true precursor to the luxury condos built in recent years — was a desirable address due to its sweeping views of Diamond Head, the ocean, mountains, and those coveted Honolulu City Lights. Add to that its proximity to downtown Honolulu, and you have the best of all worlds: a luxurious oasis with panoramic views and a 10-minute drive to all that you’d need.
Private and Spacious
There are just two condos on each floor, providing for the ultimate in privacy. Your elevator opens directly into your own entryway; there is a separate entrance for staff, nannies, or live-in care. Each townhouse is spread out like a London flat, making the most of those views. Additionally, unlike newer buildings, you can enjoy cross breezes that make island living so special thanks to the fact that each condo features windows at the back.
Rare Opportunity at 1010 Wilder Avenue
If you’re unfamiliar with 1010 Wilder Avenue, it’s probably because it is extremely rare for a unit in this building to become available. Its residents love their homes. There was no exodus from this building for the newer, shinier options that popped up elsewhere in Honolulu over the years, because owners here know that they already have everything those condos have to offer, just high above the bustle of the city. The units at 1010 Wilder are also large in square footage and arguably more private than most of the new developments in Honolulu.
That’s why Residence 1701 is an exciting opportunity for someone looking for a luxury condo in a quieter area of Honolulu that’s still convenient to all that urban living has to offer.
Completely Remodeled in 2018
What makes this particular unit so special is the fact that it was completely remodeled — taken down to its studs — in 2018, providing the perfect balance between its midcentury bonafides and the latest in modern innovations.
The 2,737-square-foot, 3 bedroom/3 bath condo features 10-foot ceilings, wide-plank oak flooring, a designer kitchen/bar with custom Leichit European cabinetry, wine storage, and Miele appliances.
In the master, you’ll find a spacious walk-in closet, deep soaking tub, and recessed designer art lighting. The trash chute is located within the unit and it’s ADA-friendly.
There are two assigned parking stalls, however, the building offers ample guest parking making entertaining easy.
This building is beloved by its residents, simply because they know how GOOD they have it. You should live this good life too.
