North Shore Paradise

Our listings past and present include quite a few beautiful properties. This new listing in Haiku certainly falls into the that category. The stunning main home went through a comprehensive remodel and the landscaping and grounds are truly stunning. However, this property is really distinguished by its fun quotient. It may well be the most fun property we have ever marketed. There are just so many things to keep you entertained on this two acre property. Its like owning your own mini resort just for the enjoyment of your family and friends.

The Main House

The main home of North Shore Paradise casts a glow in the evening.

The four bedroom, three bathroom main home offers 2,570 square feet of luxurious, living space. The seller completed a comprehensive remodel of the home in 2016.

The screened front porch of the home was converted to a dramatic entry with a custom walnut door, built in desk, new coat closet and new light fixtures. Big windows provide views of the ocean and the beautiful landscaping around the property.

The living room

The remodel work extended to the living room. The sellers added new fixtures, a new built-in entertainment center and a new built-in hutch. A new split system A/C helps to cool the house on the warmest days.

The kitchen area

The remodel work extended into the kitchen. The sellers installed a new farm sink and new Subzero, Thermador and Bosch Appliances. New Swarovski Crystal Pendants and a Custom 5,50 piece tile mosaic by Brian Lehto add to the aesthetic appeal.

The Master Bedrom
The master bedroom of the main home.

The extensive remodel work extended into the master suite. The seller added a custom built-in tiger wood cabinet for clothing and a built-in zebra wood TV center. Other notable additions to the bedroom include a new walk in closet and split system a/c. The sellers added a double vanity and a new walk-in shower to the master bathroom. An outdoor meditation garden and outdoor lava rock shower were added just off the master bathroom.

Other notable remodel items for the main house include the following:

  • New dark bamboo flooring throughout the home.
  • A new back entry was added with a custom Walnut Door, a new laundry “closet” and a new organizer.
  • New LED soffit lighting throughout the home.
  • The home’s three other bedrooms received new fans and light fixtures.
  • The sellers expanded the closet space of the two downstairs bedrooms and added built-ins.
  • A new water filtration system that services the entire house.
  • The sellers replaced the roof with a standing seam metal roof.
  • The comprehensive remodel included a replacement of the septic system.

The Ohana and the Office

The ohana of North Shore Paradise. The sellers revamped the two bedroom, one and a half bath ohana with a new kitchen and a tweaked floor plan.
The two bedroom and one and a half bath ohana

The remodel efforts extended to the detached two bedroom, one and a half bath ohana. The structure had pretty good bones with its high ceilings and tile floors. The sellers completely redid the kitchen, added new light fixtures, two new window a/c units, and they expanded the master bedroom to 300 square feet. The half bath has exterior access making it a good “pool bath” for the nearby pool area.

The sellers thoughtful touch extended to the office/studio space. The space received new lights and fixtures. An outside custom bar with seating was added to the exterior. They added a lanai area between the office and the ohana. New tile, a custom mosiac and turtle/ocean paintings by local artist Brian Lehto enhance this outdoor living space.

The revamp and renovation of North Shore Paradise included the addition of a forty foot long, heated, saltwater pool. The pool has an attached spa and a combination waterfall,slide and rock jump feature. The pool area serves as a focal point for entertainment both day and night. There is a gazebo to escape the sun next to the pool. A larger pavilion area is big enough to accommodate plenty of friends and family for a meal. As the day cools to night and the stars begin to twinkle overhead, a poolside fire pit is another spot to gather with friends and family.

The pool area is a great place for entertaining into the evening hours with a firepit, gazebo and separate pool pavilion.

Pickleball, Chess and Fruit Picking

The fun doesn’t stop at the pool area. At this time, Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in America. It crossed the big blue of the Pacific and it can now be played among the verdant landscape of North Shore Paradise. A basketball hoop gives you the opportunity to hone your three pointers and free throw shooting.

An oversized outdoor chess board means that you can exercise your mind and your body at North Shore Paradise. Tucked next to the pool pavilion and surrounded on three sides by tropical landscaping, I can’t think of many better settings for a game of chess.

The oversized outdoor chess area is surrounded by lush tropical foliage.

If you work up an appetite with all of your play, you can just meander through the property’s orchard to see if there is anything ripe to eat. There are over 20 varieties of fruit trees including citrus, avocado, lychee, macadamia nut, fig, banana, breadfruit, papaya, coffee and more. There is a small organic herb garden with room to add a vegetable garden. The edibles are just part of the beautiful landscaping on the property. Other highlights include a massive Banyan Tree, a majestic Royal Poinciana and a variety of tropical flowers.

Keeping it Green

North Shore Paradise has two large, net-metered, grid tied photovoltaic (solar) systems. There are 21 solar panels on the main house. An additional 41 panels are located on the ohana roof. The ohana panels power the ohana, office and pool. There are also solar hot water heaters on the house and the ohana. Collectively, the pv systems and the water heaters significantly reduce electric bills. Of course, they are also environmentally friendly.

Room to Roam in Nahiku

Our new Hana agent, Sonny Sudak listed a fantastic property in Nahiku on Maui’s East Side. This 57 acre property includes a small cottage, big ocean views, plenty of privacy and a whole lot more.

This Nahiku cottage is situated on a big 57 Acre lot.

The seller cleared roughly two to two and a half acres around the cottage. Recent clearing efforts helped to really open up the ocean views. The remaining acreage is largely tropical jungle with three intermittent streams crossing through the property. The closest stream is audible from the cottage after heavy rains.

The front of the cottage in Nahiku

The two bedroom one bath cottage features vaulted ceilings. There are sliding glass doors in the two bedrooms ensure you are seeing plenty of the ocean view. The sellers recently renovated the kitchen. It has plenty of counter and cabinet space. The screened in lanai off the back is a great spot to enjoy the natural beauty of the surrounding land and the ocean off in the distance.

There are numerous possibilities for this property. Keep it as it is for a private and quiet jungle hideaway. The agricultural zoning allows for a main home to built on the property. Clear more land for farming operations. The jungle locations is conducive to growing a variety of fruit trees and other agricultural products. The choice is yours.

Paia Opportunity

Paia is consistently a tight real estate market with limited inventory and strong demand. That makes our new Paia listing all the more compelling. It is truly a unique property with nothing equivalent on the market in some time. The property consists of just under a half of acre of land with a three bedroom, two bath home and a two bedroom, one bath home. Each structure has its own water meter and its own septic system. The property has already been through the CPR process. The process converted the property into two separate units that may be sold separately. The seller is opting to sell the property as a whole.

The Land

The lot in and of itself makes this property particularly compelling. There aren’t a lot of big lots in this small town. The bulk of the larger lots are more expensive oceanfront properties. This is the biggest lot to come on the market on the Mauka side of Hana Highway since 2010. The lot isn’t unique just due to its size. It is also offers a unique setting with a 753 acre agricultural parcel surrounding the property on three sides. Fewer neighbors means more quiet and more privacy. The well landscaped property includes a stately Monkeypod tree and edibles including Papaya, Banana, Mangoes and Coconuts.

This aerial perspective shows how the property is surrounded on three sides by Agricultural land.

The Homes

There are two existing, well maintained homes on the property. The one is a two bedroom, one bathroom home with 1.050 square feet of living space. The other is a three bedroom, two bathroom home with 1,130 square feet of living space and an attached car port. Both homes have some view of the ocean. Building up offers the potential for outstanding ocean views.

The Upside

I already mentioned that a second story could really enhance the views of the homes. I also mentioned that the completed CPR process for the property. That process converted each home and a surrounding area of land into separate condo units that may be sold individually. What I haven’t mentioned is that a future owner could add an additional cottage to the property. The property has the zoning, lot size and water available to build a cottage.

The Location

The quiet setting and the surrounding agricultural land make it easy to forget that you are a few minutes walk from Paia. Walk to the post office, restaurants, Mana Foods, shops, and yoga studios in five minutes. Paia Bay Park is about a ten minute walk. This is the type of property where you can leave your car parked in the driveway.
