Stunning Hana Home
The Maui Real Estate Team just listed a stunning property in beautiful Hana on Maui’s East Side. The 3 bedroom, 2 bath home offers classic Hawaii Plantation Style on the outside with modern conveniences and amenities on the inside. Built in 2008, the construction is high quality and very well maintained by both the original and current owner.
About the Home
340 Alalele exhibits attributes of the classic Hawaii home with a generous covered front lanai, a corrugated metal roof and even the classic green paint color ubiquitous around the island in days of old.
The interior includes attributes appealing for modern living including a large, open, kitchen, living and dining space and soaring vaulted ceilings. Travertine tiles run throughout much of the home. And if you still need to be connected while you are in Hana, High Speed Internet means you won’t miss Zoom calls with work.
The kitchen of the home includes custom cabinetry, Corian countertops, a custom surfboard bar top on the island and quality appliances including an induction range. The wet bar adjacent to the dining nook is a great spot for drink preparation.
The bright and spacious primary bedroom suite includes hardwood floors and a walk in closet. The en-suite primary bathroom comes with slate flooring, a double vanity and a large walk in shower.
The other two bedrooms are at the opposite end of the house from the primary suite. They share a bathroom.
The home lives larger than its 1,792 square feet of living space. Some of that can be attributed to the floor plan that avoids wasted space. The high ceilings also enhance the sense of spaciousness. Last, but not least the large lanai spaces provide for the type of indoor/outdoor living space ideal for the tropical Hana climate. It’s a great spot for watching the shifting cloudscape along the East slope of Haleakala, enjoy the patter of rain from a passing trade shower or to just soak in the natural beauty all around you.
There is a detached two car carport a short distance from the home. The carport has plenty of closet space for yard tools or beach equipment. There is an outdoor shower off the back of the home ideal for rinsing off after a hike, day in the yard or washing sand off from visiting Hamoa Beach. The home has a photovoltaic system that helps keep energy bills low.
The Land and The Location
The property consists of just over 2.9 acres of land. The landscaping around the property is a treat for the senses. The fragrance of plumeria, gardenia and night blooming jasmine fills the air. Vibrant ti plants and Hibiscus delight the eyes. An abundance of grassy lawn area feels great on your bare feet. And let’s not forget your tastebuds. Edibles include Coconuts, Avocado, Ulu (Breadfruit), Citrus, Banana, Papaya and Lilikoi. A lava rock raised bed off the back lanai is a good spot to grow herbs and vegetables. There is still plenty of room to plant additional orchard, a food forest or more garden space.
The property is a short walk to the King’s Trail and a scenic coastal hike to Waianapanapa State Park. The Hana airport is just down the road if you prefer to fly in and out of Hana. Mokulele Airlines offers two flights daily from Kahului to Hana. It is about ten minutes drive from the house to Hasegawa General Store and 15 minutes to Hamoa Beach.
For More Information…
The list price for this Hana property is $1,395,000. Check out the listing page for additional for photos. You can also take a 3D tour of the home. Contact The Maui Real Estate Team with questions or to arrange a showing of the home.
