Sitting at a 1,500 foot elevation with no neighbors in sight grants a distinctive opportunity to enjoy privileged views of the Pacific and rainbows nearly every day at this 29-acre residence. John Wallis, specialist in unique concrete design, created the Hawaiian Hawk inspired architecture to honor the surrounding nature. Dramatic 26-foot ceilings and multiple floor to ceiling windows create a light-filled residence with unobstructed views from Maui to Kona. The positioning of the home and its clerestory windows maximize the flow of the gentle Hawaiian breeze inside the home creating a truly serene environment. The turnkey home has exquisite custom furnishings and imported materials such as Douglas fir and cedar ceilings, cherry wood custom doors, 7-foot custom glass chandelier, French bronze fountain, imported porcelain tile, European plumbing fixtures, caesarstone kitchen countertops and timeless SieMatic cabinetry.
The 3 bed and 3 bath main house has nearly 10,000 square feet under roof, plus two detached unpermitted cottages with extra beds and baths. Impenetrable by the sound of the outside world, the concrete makes for not just a peaceful and secure environment but keeps in warmth at night and coolness during the day. Zero light pollution affords the luxury of impeccable views for stargazing and the home’s privileged location allows for ever-changing hues of sunsets. An extensive fire pit and outdoor tub let you decompress and take in the surrounding natural beauty in comfort. In addition to county water and power, a state-of-the-art off-grid PV system provides approximately 12 kilowatts of power, generating more power than the home needs. A 50,000-gallon tank with a cutting-edge filtration system collects rainwater to enhance the home’s sustainability and three tankless propane water heaters are spread evenly throughout the home to conserve energy. There’s also an energy shed, pasture paddock area with covered stalls and another covered shed for farming equipment. The soil is so fertile the home has an organic garden unharmed by contaminants, it has even been sampled and achieved high ratings indicating ideal usage for farming. Coffee, avocados, oranges, limes, apples, banana, nuts, berries, papayas, figs, and coconuts are just a few examples of what the home’s organic garden has successfully grown. The vast outdoor area allows the potential to construct a helicopter pad, pool or tennis courts. A one-of-a-kind opportunity to own a home that grants you the luxury to be self-sustaining, comfortably, and really get away from the world in your own private slice of the Big Island.
