Property Description

Along the scenic Red Road – and just across from the Pacific Ocean - this off-grid luxury estate sits graciously on over six fully fenced acres. The main residence, built in 2000, was renovated and modernized in 2015. Designed in the plantation style of architecture, the white wood ceilings soar to the cupola above to gently capture the trade winds and move them comfortably throughout the home. Adding to the enjoyment of living in the tropics, the large, meticulously micro-screened and covered lanai is where you will be tempted to spend most of your time enjoying year-round temperate weather and views of your estate and the ocean beyond.

The kitchen was designed with quartz countertops, solid wood cabinetry, breakfast bar and walk-in pantry. The main living areas are open to one another and have the amenities of a tech-savvy home, with strong Internet that allows for streaming - a unique feature in rural Hawaiian homes. The master suite has the same gorgeous architecture with a walk-in closet and bathroom with enjoyable outdoor shower - private to all but nature. A second bedroom and bathroom finish the easy living floor plan of the main house. The separate guest cottage was built in 2014 to match the style and design of the main house. The cottage is 1,152 square feet and features a full bathroom and custom kitchenette. It is so comfortable (and the micro-screened front lanai has such nice ocean views) your guests won't want to leave. The two-bay solar barn, also built in 2014, houses the state-of- the-art solar photo-voltaic system that powers the estate with ease. A carport with solar hot water system and a separate storage building complete the compliment of structures, all of which were built with permits.

The property itself has been transformed from a tropical jungle to an island garden paradise and is now landscaped, gardened, fenced, leveled for mowing and beautifully maintained with dimensional moments and artful fruitscapes from every vantage point.
