And Another Death

The Anderson Estate appeared in 12 episodes of Hawaii Five-0 before it became known as Robin's Nest, beach estate of potboiler author Robin Masters, in Magnum, PI. Now, news has come down that it is going to be razed. Although it has been known for many years that the house needs extensive repairs, it is tear jerking to see this picture of Spanish Revival architecture come to the end of its life. 

Although only the exterior of the Anderson Estate was seen on Magnum, PI, interior scenes were seen in most episodes in which the house appeared in Hawaii Five-0, especially in "The Second Shot," "Cloth of Gold" and "Woe to Wo Fat."   

The house was purchased by a member of the Obama administration two or three years ago. The initial rumor was that it was purchased for Obama's post-presidential residence, but that was later discounted when the Obamas purchased a different house.

It is very sad that "Robin's Nest" is going away. I don't even want to think about losing the International Marketplace. But I do love the screen shot you posted. Steve and Danny - two peas in a pod - they are even "in step."

So sad to see it go. I always liked the building may it be as a "nest" for Robin or Wo Fat or for whom ever. To me it "belonged" to Five-0 as the International Marketplace belonged to Waikiki which is sadl ygone as well by now.
