A slice of paradise is on the market for $13.95 million in the form of an idyllic Hawaiian retreat on Kauai’s South Shore.
Sitting on a private hillside homesite surrounded by lush flora, fruit trees and hand-built stone walls, the custom four-bedroom spread is positioned at the highest point in the exclusive residential resort community of Kukui’ula.
Designed by local architect Ginny Latham and built in 2020, the property’s main house spans 3,140 square feet and blends tradition and contemporary living with a “seamless blend between spacious indoor and outdoor spaces,” according to the listing with the Kukui’ula Realty Group, which brought the home to the market earlier this month.
Reclaimed teak floors and high-beamed ceilings feature across the open-plan home, which at its heart boasts a sizable kitchen “to entertain Hawaiian style,” and the primary and guest suites have custom closets and outdoor showers, the listing said. Throughout the property, sliding pocket doors open the interior up to outside.
With a footprint extending close to an acre, the home’s outdoor amenities are vast. There’s a covered lanai, dining area and sundecks, as well as a gas fire pit, a T-shaped spa and infinity pool, ocean views and a cottage for guests.
The home is being sold by its developer, property records show.
The resort community of Kukui’ula, meanwhile, offers homeowners amenities including a golf course, sandy-bottomed pools and a 18,000-square-foot spa.
Typical prices in the home’s ZIP Code, an area encompassing Koloa and Poipu, have jumped 5.9% over the past year to a median of $900,000, according to data from online property portal Redfin.
