The entertainer and Alabama native moved to Honolulu in the 1970s. He died in 2017, and his beachfront home is for sale.

Nabors — an Alabama native, singer and actor — lived at 215 Kulamanu Place in Honolulu, Oahu. He moved to Hawaii in 1976, after earning TV fame on “The Andy Griffith Show” and “Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.” Nabors, who was born and raised in Sylacauga, died in November 2017 at age 87.

“With the straightforward view of nature’s beauty, Hale Aloha reflects the open and humble nature of Jim Nabors,” Choi said in September, describing the property for sale.

Nabors’ former home sits on more than a half-acre of land and features 170 linear feet of ocean frontage in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Honolulu, Choi said.

The two-story residence was built in 1950 and covers 5,877 square feet. The property was extensively renovated in 1996, Choi said, and features five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a guest suite, a swimming pool, a cabana and a wet bar.
