Perched above Honolulu on 3.44 acres of land with spectacular views of Diamond Head and the city lights below, the Honolulu Museum of Art’s Spalding House or Nuumealani represents an unparalleled opportunity for the discerning art collector or luxury real estate buyer.  This extraordinary home would be an ideal gallery setting for a private art collection or could be restored to its former state as a grand private residence. This property’s prime location in Makiki Heights, its established infrastructure and extraordinary views bring endless opportunities for the inspired buyer.

Built originally as a residential property in 1925, the structure that is now Spalding House immediately inspires an artistic energy—its galleries once featuring the works of Deborah Butterfield, John Buck, William Wiley, and hundreds of other esteemed artists over its 30+ years as a museum. The 1,600 ft structure that housed a permanent installation of David Hockney’s L’Enfant et les sortileges is perched above the property’s sprawling lawns and tropical pathways. One could easily see this majestic former estate as the perfect home for a private collection. 

Comprised of five gallery rooms, with state-of-the-art air, humidity and security systems in place to protect the most valuable collection, this stunning building emanates its elegant history and prominence among equally superb established estates in the much sought after Makiki Heights neighborhood.  It is located a mere five-minute drive to the delights and amenities of downtown Honolulu. 

Zoned for residential use, the 5,245 sq ft main residence and gallery space is a designated Historic Property. The estate in total comprises a pool, auxiliary office spaces, a director’s residence, a gift shop, a classroom, and a studio apartment. Outside, Spalding House benefits from a stunning mature garden area with awe-inspiring vistas of Honolulu, iconic Diamond Head State Monument, and the crystal blue waters of the Pacific Ocean.
