SeaStar was purposely designed and built by the owners of Flagship Properties for their own home. The original single-story ranch house located on the site enjoyed some zoning advantages that the OBrien’s were able to capitalize upon. The original single-story house was therefore lifted in the air, and a new first story was constructed underneath. The finished house consists of 6-bedrooms and 5-baths. It features a reverse floor plan (kitchen/family/dining upstairs) with spectacular Pacific Ocean Views. It is the 3rd of 7 houses that Flagg and Flagship have designed and built on Sunset Park.
The British family of Arthur and Blanche Simpson built the Historic Hawaiian House in 1901, using architect William Sterling Hebbard. The beaches of the bay and the Spanish Bight originally surrounded this house along with two smaller plantation style buildings. Hawaiian Plantation architecture evolved from housing needed for the laborers of Hawaii’s thriving sugar industry that started in 1893. The architectural profile features a hip roof with vertical board and batten redwood siding, and two large lanais. Giant Australian tree ferns frame the front lanai, with two Torii gates and bamboo fencing surrounding the side and back yards. The interior first floor is also redwood and the second floor walls are plank sided with a repeating “pickwick” profile. Flagship restored the house and added the second floor in 2008 and sold the completed home in 2010.
