With the year coming to an end, we wanted to start taking a look at different communities around the island and how they performed in 2012. The first market we wanted to tackle is the North Shore community of Spreckelsville. Spreckelsville has a Paia mailing address, but it is a neighborhood unto itself. The community consists of higher end properties ranging from executive homes along the Maui Country Club golf course to multi-million dollar oceanfront estates. “Sprecks” is also home to Sugar Cove, the only beachfront condominium complex on the North Shore. Sprecks is a popular community both for kama’aina and second home owners. Owners in the area are drawn to the central location, beaches, access to Paia, proximity to the country club and the water sports accessible just offshore. Windsurfing, kitesurfing, surfing, SUP, body boarding and just plain beach walking are all available at the beaches and offshore reefs of Spreckelsville. The map below shows the location of the 2012 Spreckelsville real estate sales marked by blue pins and the current active real estate listings marked by green.
