This 2008 modern adaptation of Hawaiis beloved plantation era architecture is sited on the Kapehu Stream on the Hamakua Coast. You can hear the soothing sounds of the stream from within the home and the barn cottage. The main home and barn are on 20 ac. of prime coastal property with ocean and forest views as well as views of Mauna Kea with its seasonal cap of snow. The Kapehu Stream also provides for your own private waterfall and swimming hole. The main home of 3,228 sqft. with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths has an open floor plan encompassing the kitchen, dining and living room with fireplace all which open to a graceful covered lanai of approximately 1,300 square feet with ceramic tile flooring and copper railings. Marble and Brazilian Chestnut hardwood flooring throughout, high quality finishes, top of the line appliances and a full water catchment system for approximately 12,000 gallons for low overhead. The 1,600 sqft. 2-story Creekside barn-cottage you see on the hill as you approach was designed in the same elegant and comfortable style as the main house. The cottage provides complete privacy being separated by the stream and providing complete privacy from the main home. The long driveway leading to the home runs adjacent to the forest creating extraordinary privacy on the back side of the 20 acres. With a portion of the property in timber, the landscaping includes fruit trees, palms, tropical flowers and a lovely little garden shed. Currently used as a vacation rental, the property, home and barn feel like a personal retreat. NEW PHOTOS WILL BE COMING SHORTLY. NOTE: The 4th bedroom counted here was originally permitted as an office for the architect owner. It has a full bathroom but no closet and is used as a guest bedroom by the current owners. It is located across the breezeway from the main house allowing for total separation and additional privacy.
