Spreckelsville 2016 Year End Market Update

What makes Spreckelsville one of the more desirable communities on island? Convenience, access to water sports and beaches, proximity to Paia, proximity to Central Maui and a neighborhood golf course at the Maui Country Club. While demand may be high, the neighborhood sees limited turn over. When you have all the amenities of Spreckelsville, there aren’t many reasons to move. The post below outlines how the Spreckelsville Real Estate market fared in 2016 and gives a few thoughts on what we might expect in the coming year.

The map above shows the current active listings and the 2016 sales. Click on the individual pins for more details on the properties.

Spreckelsville continued to see signs of upwards price pressure during 2016. While volume wasn’t extraordinary, it was largely a reflection of supply. Here are some notable numbers from the 2016 Spreckelsville sales.

  • There were five homes and one Sugar Cove Condo sold this year.
  • Two of the five homes were sold prior to being listed. That continues a recent trend in the neighborhood that reflects demand for the area.
  • The Oli Oli Kai sale was the highest ever price for a property in the North Shore or Upcountry area. 120 Ulupua was the highest ever sale in the Sprecks V subdivision.
  • Sales were spread throughout Spreckelsville with one close on Stable Road, one sale in E Paepae Ka Puko’a, two sales in Old Sprecks and one sale in Sprecks V.

What will 2017 bring for this in demand North Shore neighborhood? Supply is going to be a limiting factor with only four active listings currently. If all four listings were to sell close to their current asking prices, they would be a testament to rising values. All of the listings would be a record of some kind for their property type. 600 Stable Road is priced higher than any previous home sale on the North Shore or Upcountry. 0 Paani is priced above any other lot to have sold in Sprecks. 204 Kealakai would be the highest priced non-oceanfront home sale in Spreckelsville. 2464 Waipua would have the highest cost per square foot for any home in Sprecks V and the second highest sales price in the neighborhood.

The Spreckelsville area is near and dear to the Maui Real Estate Team. Our broker Billy and agent Martin both call the neighborhood home. Either one would welcome the opportunity to talk to prospective buyers about their experiences living in the area. We keep a close eye on the market and an ear to the ground for unlisted properties.

3035 Baldwin Avenue Details

“The details are not the details. They make the design.”-Charles Eames

Over the years, I have had the opportunity to look at a lot of properties throughout all corners of Maui. I have seen a number of beautiful homes. Some are distinguished for their views, some for their architecture, some for their setting and some for all of the above. 3035 Baldwin Avenue in Makawao is one that fits the all of the above category. That said, today I wanted to hone in on the details of the property. 3035 Baldwin is the type of home where you notice something new each time you visit. The photos below capture some of the details that you might miss on a quick visit.

stainless steel circles 3035 Baldwin
The stainless steel circles in this railing are ubiquitous throughout the property. You see them at the front gate, you see them used for railings. They are used in the kitchen and bathrooms. The amazing thing is that the owner individually welded all of the circles together. There are over 2,000 on the property.

3035 fire pit cistern
3035 Baldwin was part of the old Kaluanui Estate. An old cistern next to the main house was converted to a firepit. A great place to watch the sunset as day turns to night in Upcountry Maui and stars begin to blanket the skies.

a trellis is reflected in the circular window
Circles are a feature seen throughout the design of the house. This portal window reflects a trellis outside the master bedroom. The siding is also noteworthy. Rather than just using linear shakes on the exterior. The shakes are in a wave like pattern.

Blue Door at 3035 Baldwin
The circle theme carried over into this blue door down by the garage.

3035 sculpture

Jalousie window mechanism 3035 Jalousie or louvre windows are popular in tropical architecture. They can let in breezes while keeping out moisture. This home has oversized jalousies. The owner designed and built the mechanics to open and close these large jalousies. The end result is beautiful, durable and very functional.

3035 japanese tub spigot
The Japanese soaking tub outside the master suite uses as bamboo spigot that is turned on and off by a faucet made from a stack of river rocks.

These are just some of the eye catching design features around the home. Check out the youtube video below to see more details of the property.

This property is offered for $6,900,000. For a big picture view of the property, check out the Maui Haven Website. Qualified buyers may contact The Maui Real Estate Team to arrange an exclusive preview.
