In 2014, D.R. Horton, one of America’s largest home builders, completed 73 single-family homes in the master-planned community of Mehana in Kapolei, Oahu’s Second City. D.R. Horton named this new development, Kukuna at Mehana. Kukuna roughly translated means ray of sunshine.
The sun definitely shines on these three-and-four bedroom, single-family homes offering "Home Save," a program that includes energy-efficient technologies and eco-friendly features.
Home Save is designed to help homeowners reduce operating costs, provide homes that are adaptable to future technology, and lessen future costs for maintenance and repairs. Key energy-efficient building features include solar water heaters, dual-pane low-E windows and ENERGY STAR® appliances for kitchen and laundry. Kukuna homes are photovoltaic (PV) ready as well as electric car-ready and through the Home Save program, the homes at Kukuna at Mehana are designed to use less energy than many other homes for sale in Kapolei
, ultimately allowing residents to save on monthly utility bills.
These two-story homes have garages plus a bedroom and full bath on the first floor. Open plans, sidewalks, walking paths, close proximity to the MAC (Mehana Activity Center) with a community pool, BBQ area, club house, basketball courts and dog park make these homes more than just homes for sale, but a true suburban retreat. Just a short drive from golf courses, fine and fast-food dining, movie theaters, shopping centers including Ka Makana Alii, and a water park complete this ideal picture of a work-life balanced community.
Ranging in size from 1214 square feet to 1413 square feet, homes at Kukuna at Mehana are bordered by Renton Road, Kukulu Street, Kakala Street and Kinehe Street putting the homes in walking distance from elementary and high schools. Family-oriented, there is something for everyone from toddlers to tutu.
