Welcome to this unique Ahualoa Hawaii Private Upcountry Retreat. List price offered is below county tax assessors values! This one of a kind dream house began with a recycled 25,000 gallon Redwood water-tank on 5-acres with ocean and Mauna Kea views. In 2001 the work began with adding approximately 5,802 sq. ft. of copper roofed, new living space. The dynamic feature of this home is the 34-foot waterway that cascades through the living room. This open air great room combines the kitchen, a large circular loft and living room which looks out onto an infinity view of pasture land, the ocean and Mauna Kea. Above the great room is a configuration of skylights 30 ft. by 10 ft. and behind it is a 34 bank of pocket doors that bring the outdoors in, filling the room in natural lighting. The gourmet kitchen features Honduran Mahogany custom cabinets, granite counter tops and Ohia wood floors. A partially covered lanai wraps around the home culminating in a custom-designed Quartzite spa. Retreat to the Master Suite with its 6-sided window view and indoor/outdoor shower & Jacuzzi Whirlpool Bath, includes a separate office/library with fireplace. A separate guest wing includes 2 suites, sitting room, and private lanai.This home is built to last with red-iron steel framing, copper roof, Redwood siding, poured concrete foundation walls, Maplewood ceilings, Ohia wood and slate flooring, European hardware double-glazed windows, Honduran Mahogany cabinetry and trim, granite and marble counters, climate control system, and Grohe plumbing fixtures. Other features include hidden underground wine cellar, concealed garage door a detached separate studio (1154 sq. ft.), and a man cave (recreation room).
