Alfred Preis home (MLS # 201722271) at 3206 Melemele Place
Melemele Place is a street in Manoa where you can see a number of his works. What's nice about this one is the sheer size of the lot - 16,555 sq. ft. according to tax records.
Expansive lot featuring driveway, lush views and level yard out the back
This home also has a nice feel of "bringing the outside in" with lots of fixed pane windows.
Living area with hardwood floors bringing the outside in with large windows
The home also featured Alfred Preis' signature use of custom hardwood cabinetry, hard color surfaces (often turquoise or teal) on countertops and backslashes for color contrast. He also used ventilation pukas (holes) in pantry cabinets as well as bathroom cabinets for a built-in laundry hamper.
Hardwood built-ins, color contrasts and ventilation were some signature features
