Step back in time to an era where the exceptional size of this 9000 sq. ft. residence reflected the entertaining and hospitality plantation managers were expected to provide to visiting executives. This private gated Kilauea Plantation Manager’s estate located on 13.23 acres, was designed by L. David Larsen, engineer and plantation manager. It was the first, largest and most elaborate stone-walled residence built on the plantation. Field lava rock, removed from the fields, was transported via plantation railroad for the construction. Many field rock, weighing over 2000 lb., were used to construct the massive 2ft. deep walls. The two large “walk-in” fireplaces, the 10ft. wide covered lanai’s running the entire length of the house on all sides with columns and the columns for the two grand Porte Cocheres were built of this rock. The interesting “butterfly design” of the main house adapts to climate and informal lifestyle of Hawaii. The main residence of 6300 sq. ft. has a 2-story flr plan. Second floor’s beautiful Douglas fir floors have 4 large bdrm suites with central air conditioning and three baths. The main floor has an impressive greeting room with its massive fireplace, the large grand room has a floor to ceiling rock fireplace and beautiful rare Ohia floors, a private office, and the formal dining room can accommodate many guests. The huge sky lighted kitchen is equipped for large events. A “LOO” bathroom is perfect for guests and staff. This one of a kind private estate has beautiful grounds, organic gardens and is surrounded by the Kilauea River with waterfalls and swimming ponds. Another stone house on the estate for staff or guests has 2 beds and 1 bath. The stone building referred to as “the Yoga Studio” with the “center of the universe” is most unique. The large 6 car stall garage was designed by a serious car collector, plus a 2 car open carport. Opposite the garage is a lovely 2-beds 1 bath apartment for guests.
