The Magnum PI Hawaii home set to be demolished. The home featured and made famous in the 1980’s series will likely be demolished. The owner, a good friend of President Barrack Obama, obtained the demolition permit for the 8,500 square foot home.
Magnum PI and Robin’s Nest
The original television show staring, Tom Selleck, shot many scenes here in Waimanalo. The show referred to the home as “Robin’s Nest”. Tom Selleck’s character lived in a cottage on the property. The shots of the picturesque home on the water in Waimanalo were regularly used in the show. It is ironic that now that it is being torn down is the same time that she is being revamped for a new generation.
Historic Waimanalo home
The family of Hawaii State representative Eve Andersen built the home in 1933 ad designed it much like an Italian villa. The home fell into disrepair in recent years. The family sold the home 3 years ago to Waimanalo Paradise LLC, an entity owned by Martin Nesbitt, a Chicago businessman and despite its age, the home is not on the historic registry.
The future of the Magnum PI property
According to the permit, the homes will be demolished leaving behind the foundations. Frequently beachfront and oceanfront homes are only partially demolished so that new homes can be built within the current setback requirements. We anticipate a new stunning to be built although no new permit has been issued for the property.
Waimanalo Paradise LLC purchased the property on former President Barrack Obama’s behalf is a rumor, it is unclear if the home will indeed be occupied by the Obama family.
Waimanalo is on the windward side of the island and is the most north-east town. It is sandwiched between gorgeous beaches and the dramatic cliffs of the Ko’olau mountain ranges. Kalanianaole Hwy., a 2-lane road, runs through this town. Waimanalo mixes Hawaiian Homestead Land, Agricultural land and the Bellows Air Force Station and more along with small pockets of beachside homes dot along the Waimanalo coast. Enjoy the stunning beaches from Bellows all the way to Makapuu by Sealife Park.
