Set at the crossroads of seclusion and adventure this fully off-grid, North Shore retreat offers 4.5 acres of silence and solitude that stimulates the senses. From walking barefoot through an orchard of mangoes, to soaking in the plunge pool in the stream that flows through the property, to watching (and hearing!) whales that splash in the waters offshore from the private 2000+sq ft. rooftop deck. The home’s innovative “earth-crete” construction ensures indoor temperatures stay nice and comfortable at 76 degrees, and a 300 ft. well, fiber optic cables, and 21kW of lithium batteries provide a lifestyle of modern convenience that’s fused with the joys of living “off the land”. Aside from the main home’s 2,700 sq. ft living space, the property is peppered with architectural surprises that invite imaginative possibilities for hosting family and friends. Cool off in the 20 ft. “container pool” after a morning of picking starfruit and loquats, or watch the sun crest Haleakala volcano after climbing a staircase of bamboo and pine that leads to the rooftop and turret where 180-degree views of the blue horizon over nearby Honokala Bay are plentiful. Brew a cup of moringa tea in the spacious downstairs kitchen, using dried leaves from the gorgeous green tree that shades one side of the home. Light a candle, sit, and soak in the concrete bathtub, or take a well-deserved, afternoon nap in a bedroom that’s cooled by the trades. And, while the property is less than five minutes from the highway, you’d be forgiven if you can’t remember the last time you got in the car, since the setting, quiet, and host of comforts make you question why you’d ever leave.
