Sachi Hawaii says the former home of legendary television producer Al Masini located on 1133 Ikena Circle sold for $10,001,000.

Masini, recipient of an unprecedented thirty-three Emmy Awards, was responsible for shows including “Entertainment Tonight”, “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” and “Star Search.”

The sale of the home marks the 7th property in two years to sell for over $10,000,000 on Oahu.

This also ranks as the most expensive home sale to ever record in Hawaii Loa Ridge. Sachi Braden, President and Principle Broker of Sachi Hawaii and co-listor Graham Ting represented both the buyer and the seller for this landmark sale.

The home on 1133 Ikena Circle is dubbed Hi’ilani, meaning “In the Arms of Heaven.”

Constructed in 1996, this masterful estate has a sprawling 30,000 sq.ft. of land area and 16,000 sq.ft. of indoor / outdoor living space.

Consisting of three adjoining parcels of land, Hi’ilani stands 1,000 feet above sea level overlooking Kahala and Diamond Head.

Surrounded by the tropical Ko’olau Mountains, Hi’ilani enjoys unobstructed 270-degree views of world-renowned Diamond Head Crater, towering green mountains, lush valleys, and turquoise Pacific waters.

Masini brought his television expertise to the design of Hi’ilani. Intricate details such as creating large Lanai overhangs to shield windows and doors from intense sun and rain, and to protect walls from water and mildew, were taken into consideration. The end result allows for frameless windows, large outdoor living spaces, and reduced upkeep, allowing for a more enjoyable lifestyle.

Museum-quality original artworks, collected by Masini himself, adorn the interior. A twin staircase defines the entrance, supplemented by marble floors, bronze wrought ironwork railings, masterful Austrian crystal chandelier, finished with an indoor fountain. 18th-Century French appointments flow throughout. French silk draperies mirroring those in the White House hang in the entryway.

Sachi Hawaii brought this estate to the market in 2012 listed at $12,500,000.
