As you drive up through a wooded tunnel of trees, you are greeted by a huge flowering Monkeypod and this award-winning home (2007 ASID Hawaii Award of Honor (1st Place) for Mid-Size Residence) that combines indoor and outdoor living seamlessly. With a beautiful exterior that matches its surroundings, the inside of the main home was carefully designed by a well known interior design firm and is all luxury. There are clear cedar and tongue and groove ceilings, a coffered ceiling in the master bedroom, and pocket doors that bring the outdoors in. There are two wings to this house, while connected, they give the feeling of separate spaces. The home features decorating schemes that combine contemporary Asian-influenced furnishings and decor together with lively geometric and modern touches. There are also custom glass doors faux-painted to suggest shoji screens, and S-Form resin panels installed in the tansu kitchen cabinetry as well as in the media room. The master bedroom has an outdoor shower and hot tub off its private lanai. All of this is on 2 private manageable acres surrounded by larger parcels, with views of Maui and gorgeous mature tropical vegetation, apple bananas, and feeling of old Hawaii throughout. In addition, there is a clean and cozy legal 1 bedroom 1 bath home well situated away from the main house. This wonderful gem of an ohana gives one the feeling of being in a treehouse, situated as it is above a large gulch. This is Kohala at its finest.
