Hawaiian Plantation Style in Kula
The main home for this property was originally constructed in 1936. There was a significant addition that added a new master suite in 2006. The builder took considerable effort to ensure that the addition blended seamlessly with the style and charm of the original home. Some of the features of the home include a cedar shake roof, fir floors throughout the home, a wood burning stove in the living room for cooler Upcountry nights and a clawfoot tub in the master suite bathroom. The kitchen was updated in 2013 with butcher block counter tops and subway tile back splash.
There are three generous lanai spaces off the back of the home. The two covered lanai are located in front of the master suite and the living room respectively. There is a large uncovered lanai space in front of the kitchen. The lanai spaces make for great locations to take in the stunning views of both the North Shore and South Maui Coastlines, the big blue ocean, island of Lanai and West Maui Mountains. It is tough to beat watching the sun dip in to the Pacific on a cool evening Upcountry.
