Listing: 4 bedroom, 6 bath, ocean-view retreat
Location: Kukio, Hawaii
Price: $13.9 million
Its Japanese gardens, meditative shrine and separate painting studio are likely to instill a deep sense of tranquility to visitors of this Hawaiian home that offers a full, 360-degree view of the ocean.
The four-bedroom, six-bathroom house on Hawaii's Big Island was built by a Texan developer in 2008. He purchased the land for $1.5 million and hired Honolulu architect Warren Sunnland to build a home fashioned after the Golden Door Spa, a popular spa founded in California that now has several U.S. locations.
The 9,000-square-foot house is within the gates of Kukio, a private oceanfront club and residential community that shelters CEOs and other wealthy and famous home owners, Joni J. Metzler of MacArthur & Co. Sotheby's International Realty said last week.
"It's been named the gold coast of Hawaii because when Christmas rolls around, or like the Fourth of July coming up, there are probably about 50 private jets at the airport," she said.
The house has been on the market since October and is listed at $13.9 million. Metzler said she's beginning to see more visitors to the community from across the United States because of an increase in direct flights to the Big Island.
