Craftsman Chic Meets Tropical Splendor in Classic Honolulu Villa

Sliding doors double as walls at this 6,000-square-foot Oahu home between the Ko’olau Mountains and Maunalua Bay, which means that with a flick of the wrist, the separation between the villa’s intricate woodwork, vaulted ceilings and spalike interior space and its gardens, lawns, patios, two outdoor showers and waterfront pool just disappears.
