Kuulei Tract has a deceptive name for such an elegant neighborhood. This is a place that is quintessentially Kailua. Not by emulating the distinct style of the town, but by being the real deal.
Most Kuulei Tract homes are the original occupants of their lots, built in the years between the 1950's and 70's. These structures were designed for owners who desired to live within this beautiful environment as it was and still is, not how a landscaper made it to appear. They knew the greatest pleasures are the most natural ones.
Despite the genuine vintage look of the homes themselves, remodeling has been done on a large number of the residences, resulting in modernized interiors and, in certain cases, an expansion of the structure's footprint.
As you may have guessed, the expanse of the floorplans, old and new, are almost all horizontal. You won't see many 2nd stories on these streets, which preserves the best possible sightlines for all. That's important when you live next to the marvels that are practically next door.
Why Houses in Kuulei Tract Are in Such High Demand
The neighborhood sits against the north side of Kailua Estates, even with the the corresponding end of Kailua Beach Park. The front, or east end, of Kuulei Tract is almost across the street from the beach, while the west end runs right up against Kailua District Park and the Intermediate School. From there, Kailua Town and its shopping and dining are an extremely easy stroll. You've got options in every direction.
The very best one will often be just relaxing at home. It isn't hard to do when you live on lots that provide from 10,000 to 14,000 sq ft of space. You'll find roomy dimensions right underneath your roof as well, taking up from 1900 to 2500 sq ft inside.
