Featured in Architectural Digest, September 2004 and offered fully furnished.
Surrounded by the sea, this hillside estate possesses privacy and the beauty of Kauai. Anchoring this largely open-air, pavilion style home is a central courtyard where Koi splash in the fountain filled with water lilies and anthirium share the sun with a wide variety of tropical wonders.
To experience this 7 acre estate is like traveling the world, exciting and unexpected. Around every corner there is a new and wonderful adventure that world renowned design firm HendrixAllardyce have created with great pleasure and radiating flow. The main home is an architectural gem which has been totally restored and in original condition. Built of solid 2×12 old growth redwood milled in Colorado, the home consists of three pod-like structures that are subtlety linked and designed to entertain, relax, or host guests for a dinner party on any one of the spacious lanais. Travertine floors were installed and walls were lacquered to complement the redwood construction and draw out the sympathetic tones in the antique furnishings that grace the home. Seemingly transparent walls invite and allow the outside to feel welcomed in and embrace Kauai’s year round perfect climate.
Separate from the main house is the newly renovated 2 story 2 bedroom “Garden House” which overlooks the gardens abundant with avocado, lychee, mango, citrus, banana, heliconia and palms. It has everything you might expect from a HendrixAllardyce design. As an added bonus to this abundantly giving property is a separate working office with an expansive view of Kauai’s amazing coastline.
Whether you are enjoying the Koi silvered by the sunlight or listening to the bronze cast bells that deeply chime in the evening trade winds or settling into a banquette in the open-air salon sipping a Mai Tai at sunset with visiting friends, this hillside estate is a magical place to call home.
