3035 Baldwin Avenue, Makawao

Is this your dream? Does your Hawaiian Dream include a custom crafted home on an expansively beautiful property in one of  Maui’s prime locations?  In your dream, is the home itself a work of art, blending the best of Asian and Hawaiian design elements?  Is there a large modern workshop where maybe your boat or other toys are waiting?

Do you dream of a house that is well suited both to entertaining friends and family and quiet moments of reflection? Can you envision lounging on the lanai looking at the North Shore and the West Maui Mountains, sipping a cool beverage and watching the sun set with friends? The smell of wood smoke and fresh Italian herbs waft across the lanai from your pizza oven. Or, perhaps you’re looking across your fruit orchard at the full glory of Haleakala, clear as a bell. Later, you’ll stargaze from the hot tub.

Often in the dream, you’re exploring the many meandering trails that traverse the landscape, enabling you to truly enjoy the property’s entire 70 acres. The trails pass by a small, organic lettuce farm and a young forest of native koa trees, some of which you’re thinking you’ll harvest one day for their prized wood. You find a running stream and macadamia nut trees and allspice groves. You can smell them in your dream, and they smell like spice cake.

Do you dream of never paying a power bill thanks to a powerful state-of-the-art photovoltaic power system? Does the dream include a lifestyle that combines intrinsic privacy and the convenience of driving 2 minutes to get to great restaurants, stores, spa treatments or yoga classes?

Kula Koa Price Reduction

We just had a significant price reduction on Kula Koa. This 52 acre property in Upcountry Maui consists of two separate parcels of land. There is one parcel that is 38 acres and a second parcel that is 14 acres. The seller had a massive well and water system installed that delivers water throughout the property. There is a very well constructed two bedroom cottage that includes high end appliances and a fire place to warm and cozy on cool Upcountry nights. There is a massive garage with an attached ag work shop that gives you plenty of space to store farm equipment with room to spare for a surfboard or two. The existing structures are powered by a six kilowatt photovoltaic (solar) system with back up batteries and generator. The seller has already installed a septic system and graded a building pad for a main home. The building site offers impressive views of the West Maui Mountains, the North Shore Coastline and Haleakala.

The water, zoning and acreage offer a number of opportunities for buyers. There is the potential for additional subdivision, enough water to share with neighbors and a lot of agricultural potential. There are already separate pasture areas set up for livestock or other grazing animals. The elevation and climate are ideal for orchards. There is also opportunity for vegetable farming.

Kula Koa is now offered by the Maui Real Estate Team, Inc. for $4,975,000. Check out the Kula Koa Listing Page for additional photos and details on the property. Qualified buyers may contact The Maui Real Estate Team to discuss the property or to arrange an exclusive preview.

1050 Piiholo Road, Olinda, Maui-An Estate Property of Tremendous Natural Beauty

This 44 acre plus Upcountry Maui estate property must be seen and experienced to be appreciated. With two homes, a burgeoning native forest that is being subsidized by a conservation grant, a four-lot subdivision nearing completion and gorgeous views to the North Shore and West Maui Mountains, past Kahakuloa to Molokai, opportunities abound. Private retreat. Family estate. Organic farm. The only limitation is your imagination.

The primary residence is a luxurious 2 bedroom 2 bath home with a long list of amenities. Quality details include vaulted ceilings, an enormous lanai that looks towards the North Shore and Molokai, custom kitchen cabinetry, high quality granite kitchen counters, Brazilian Cherry Floors, two spa tubs in the bathrooms and a small photo-voltaic system to subsidize the electric bill.

The 2nd dwelling is an older farm dwelling with some updates, a large 4-car carport and an office. In addition there is a small greenhouse, a water catchment building with two tanks and an auxiliary water catchment tank as well. There have been over 1200 native trees planted on the property including varieties such as Koa, Ohia and Sandalwood. The native trees subject to the NRCS grant can be expanded to over 30 acres of the estate that are protected by a gated deer fence. In addition to natives there is a healthy orchard of Citrus and Lychee as well as a few large Avocado trees on the property. Other features include a sauna, an additional building site and a “time machine” that will bring you back to when you were 8 years old.

This property offers tremendous privacy for those that seek seclusion. However, you are five minutes away from Makawao Town and a short drive to Seabury Hall and Paia. Kahului airport is only thirty minutes away. This Upcountry estate is offered for $5,000,000. Check out the 1050 Piiholo Road, Olinda listing page for more photos and information on the property.
