It’s been a rock and roll December here on SecondShelters.com starting with Sammy Hagar’s Maui retreat showcased at the beginning of the month. Now it’s time to have a look at Fleetwood Mac bassist John McVie’s (the “Mc” in Fleetwood Mac) Honolulu estate. So sit back and listen to the wind blow, watch the sun rise … and set … at 3124 Noela Drive on the slopes of Diamond Head (map).
First, let’s talk Noela Drive. It’s a semi-secret, dead-end road of just 16 super-private homes. Half the homes literally have a volcano as their backyard. Looky-Lous don’t go up there because they don’t know about it and besides, almost all you can see are gates. A $5 million budget might elicit a polite titter. When I spoke with McVie’s listing agent Patricia Choi, she summed up Noela Drive as where you buy and die. Sales are rare. When buyers ask what’s available she often says “nothing”, with McVie’s home, she can say “one” … but only for a little while.
