Classic Hawaii Plantation Style Home in Kula
We have a brand new listing in Upcountry Maui. The property includes 3.136 acres of fully fenced, gently sloped land; a classic three bedroom, two bathroom Hawaiian Plantation Style Home and a detached ohana.
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.
Other Structures on the Property
The home has a detached two car garage. There is a good space in the garage for a small work shop. There is also an office with a half bath off the back of the garage.
The detached ohana is located downslope from the main home. The distance and topography results in good separation and privacy between the structures.

There is a common mango tree in front of the home that has one of the more impressive collections of staghorn ferns, Pele’s Hair (Spanish Moss) and a smattering of colorful orchids.

3035 Baldwin Avenue Details
“The details are not the details. They make the design.”-Charles Eames
Over the years, I have had the opportunity to look at a lot of properties throughout all corners of Maui. I have seen a number of beautiful homes. Some are distinguished for their views, some for their architecture, some for their setting and some for all of the above. 3035 Baldwin Avenue in Makawao is one that fits the all of the above category. That said, today I wanted to hone in on the details of the property. 3035 Baldwin is the type of home where you notice something new each time you visit. The photos below capture some of the details that you might miss on a quick visit.
The stainless steel circles in this railing are ubiquitous throughout the property. You see them at the front gate, you see them used for railings. They are used in the kitchen and bathrooms. The amazing thing is that the owner individually welded all of the circles together. There are over 2,000 on the property.
3035 Baldwin was part of the old Kaluanui Estate. An old cistern next to the main house was converted to a firepit. A great place to watch the sunset as day turns to night in Upcountry Maui and stars begin to blanket the skies.
Circles are a feature seen throughout the design of the house. This portal window reflects a trellis outside the master bedroom. The siding is also noteworthy. Rather than just using linear shakes on the exterior. The shakes are in a wave like pattern.
The circle theme carried over into this blue door down by the garage.
A sculpture outside the main home.
Jalousie or louvre windows are popular in tropical architecture. They can let in breezes while keeping out moisture. This home has oversized jalousies. The owner designed and built the mechanics to open and close these large jalousies. The end result is beautiful, durable and very functional.
The Japanese soaking tub outside the master suite uses as bamboo spigot that is turned on and off by a faucet made from a stack of river rocks.
These are just some of the eye catching design features around the home. Check out the youtube video below to see more details of the property.
This property is offered for $6,900,000. For a big picture view of the property, check out the Maui Haven Website. Qualified buyers may contact The Maui Real Estate Team to arrange an exclusive preview.
