Information on Anderson Estate Sale

Sorry if this isn't showing as a hyper link but just copy and paste it into your browser.  This was in the morning Honolulu paper.

Interesting to note they did not pay cash but got a mortgage for more than the cost of the house.  Wonder what would have happened if one of us had tried that?  Maybe being BFF with the president helped?

Will post any updates….



P.S.  I did just have a local TV station contact me and wanted pictures of the estate interior.  They were shocked to learn that we only shot the EXTERIOR of the house and that all interior filming was done inside a soundstage.  But YOU already knew that!   You also know that the soundstage sets were more based on the Marks Estate (also in escrow) and later used as the King Kamehameha Club because the pilot was shot in that house, not the Anderson Estate.

Two Estates Are in Escrow

Can't believe it's been almost 1-1/2 years since I've posted on this blog.  Well, considering it's been 30+ years since I was working on the show, I guess it's not surprising.

I ran into a realtor friend yesterday who told me that both the "Marks Estate" (pilot for Magnum and frequent film location including the King Kamehameha Club) as well as the Eve Glover Anderson Estate have been sold and are both in escrow.  I don't know who bought them or what the final selling price was or what the new owners are planning to do with them.  If any of you find out, please feel free to add a comment here.  If I hear of anything, I will post it.

As for me, I just finished a Chinese movie on Friday as the Production Designer called "Pali Road" (previously called "Life Unknown").

FYI, Tom Selleck is now 70 and John Hillerman is 83.  I'm still 36.
