Location: Honolulu, Hawaii
The Skinny: Perched high atop a mountain overlooking Honolulu, this 15,000-square-foot house may not be beach-front property, but offers killer views and plenty of manmade waterworks, including swimming pools, waterfalls, a water slide, and a hot tub. There's also an indoor/outdoor koi pond and plenty of terraces from which to look out over Diamond Head, Honolulu, and the Pacific. Built in 1989, the house itself has seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms, fireplaces for cool island nights, a billiard room, and a screening room with floral wallpaper that will not be ignored. But you don't buy a home like this for its wallpaper, especially when almost every living area boasts million-dollar city and ocean views. The lush grounds spread over almost two acres, and include manicured lawns, tropical foliage, and plenty of overlooks, from where, the listing wistfully notes, one can "watch the sunset and listen to the soft whispers of the wind through trees." It's asking $12.5M.
