Off-grid living is about being autonomous. The “lifestyle” of off-grid living varies widely depending on your needs and desires. Some may view off-grid living as a rugged existence; the property at 796 Awalau road will, without question, change that perception. This property was constructed with the idea that off-grid living can be as luxurious and full of amenities as traditional living and has fulfilled the promise of a private, sustainable way of life, free from public utilities and all the associated inconveniences. Located on a private road in Haiku at approximately 2000’ of elevation, the “art farm” is powered by a 48-panel solar array, a propane powered back-up generator and 8 batteries. Great care was given to the design of the structures on this property to lessen its “footprint” through energy efficacies, site placement and the optimization of water collection for the catchment system. The property consists of nearly 16 acres with never-ending ocean views, grassy knolls with grazing horses, stunning views of Haleakala, breath-taking lights of cruise ships passing at night and the Milky Way with minimal, if any, nighttime light pollution. The main dwelling was designed and built by the owner who was guided by three principles: form / function, passive conditioning to naturally improve the indoor living environment, and, finally, to frame the most incredible views. A number of other structures on the property include: a privately tucked away lofted cottage, a quonset hut steel building workshop / barn with a 110-inch projection home theater and 4-car carport, a fully equipped wellness studio with infra-red sauna, a 40’ container swimming pool with a large plexiglass panel, providing views into pool from the adjacent outdoor kitchen/entertaining space. See Associated Documents for addtional 3D links. This one-of-a-kind property is the opportunity of a lifetime to live the Maui lifestyle in an eco-conscious, self-sustainable private retreat. Call your favorite Realtor to schedule a private showing you won’t regret.
