This upcountry Waikii home has all the charm and elegance of an estate built by a prominent local architect for himself and his family. The lot was chosen for its prime location, with stunning views that include all of the surrounding mountains: Mauna Kea, Hualalai, Kohala, Mauna Loa, and Maui’s Haleakala. The landscaping is mature, featuring Jacaranda and native trees such as Koa and Koa`ia interspersed with a rolling green yard. This exceptionally well-built house is situated to take advantage of a westerly view of the ocean along the Kohala Coast from South Kona to Kawaihae Harbor. It features 3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, a dining area, and an upcountry kitchen with large windows all around. There is an upstairs loft/library that can be used as an office or just as a great place to curl up with a book. The very large lanai wraps around the front and south side of the house and provides an ideal spot for entertaining large gatherings of family and friends against a backdrop of multicolored sunsets. A unique Rumford fireplace features three separate fireplaces off a central axis, with one fireplace in the living room, another in the dining room, and a third outside on the lanai. No detail was spared in the quality of the build, from earthquake mitigation efforts, to the back-up catchment water system, to the copper and brass lips above the doors and windows. A timeless masterpiece imbued with the peaceful charm of its upcountry setting, the house is located only 20 minutes from Waimea in the heart of the beautiful Waikii Ranch. With its wide-open spaces, polo field, and miles of riding trails, Waikii Ranch is one of the premier places on island for the equestrian life. A ranch clubhouse contains a gym, entertainment facilities, and a room that can be rented for overflow guests. For anyone wishing to be close to everything and yet a world away, this Waikii estate may be just the place to call home.
