New Plantation Style Listing In Wailuku
I have always been a fan of Plantation Style architecture. To be clear, I do not mean the columned antebellum mansions of the old South. I am referring to the bungalow like structures from the plantation period of Hawaii when pineapple and sugar cane were the islands main industries. The Jim Sanders office has a new listing from this era. Located in the Sandhills area of Wailuku, this gracious kama’aina estate mixes the charms of old Hawaii with the latest in modern design creating a unique lifestyle. There are three beautifully positioned dwellings nestled on a lush tropical .63 acre lot. The yard has been meticulously maintained with tropical botanicals and an orchard of approx. 18 varieties of fruit including mango, papaya, guava, starfruit, lemons, limes, tangerines, mac nuts and coconut palms. The property has gorgeous views of the Iao Valley.
The main home has bamboo flooring as well as vertical bamboo on the walls. The kitchen includes mosaic tile walls, stainless steel appliances and cherry wood cabinetry w/bamboo patterned glass doors. The bathrooms boast beautiful limestone & teak. One of the guest bedrooms have been converted in to a large walk-in closet & laundry room to provide organizational ease.
The 2nd dwelling is used as a secluded master suite. Formerly an open air cinderblock pavilion, it too has been completely renovated. Glass valence windows were used to enclose the structure while preserving the sense of indoor outdoor living. The structure has been completely wired with high speed internet, cable, and 220 power. It has a private detached bathhouse. The bath house incorporates materials such as black bamboo, tumbled slate, granite and norfolk pine. The plantation “cabin” ohana is as large as the main home w/3bedrooms & two baths. It is completely private from the other dwellings. The original hardwood floors and walls have all been refinished. The bathrooms have been updated along with many other details throughout the house.
Live in the impeccably restored main house with secluded master suite pavilion and bath & rent out the ohana, or enjoy the entire property with a combined total of 7 bedrooms, 5 baths, and an outdoor shower. Privately tucked at the end of the street, this beautiful tropical oasis is being offered at $1,399,000.00. Most of the beautiful furnishings are included in the sale with the exception of all the art accesories and a few select furniture pieces .
