A blend of luxury island living and an intimate retreat to escape to Kahalawai Custom Home 17

Kahalawai Custom Home 17

One thing has remained consistent in the Kauai real estate market over the years, there has always been a keen interest in premium luxury homes. Custom homes at Kukuiʻula represent some of the most highly sought after luxury properties on the sunny South Shore of Kauai.

One of the best examples of this select group of offerings available at Kukuiʻula is Kahalawai Custom Home 17. This 4,490 square foot residence is thoughtfully placed on a spacious 35,937 square foot homesite with blue water views to the south, emerald green mountains to the east, and show stopping sunsets to the west.

As you step through the meticulously maintained entrance of this home, pass by the serene Zen Garden, and enter through the intricately carved mahogany double doors, an immediate sense of belonging envelops you. Nestled in the upper reaches of Kukuiʻula, this well-established neighborhood setting is elevated to new heights by its awe-inspiring vistas.

The refined elegance of the grand great room adorned with bespoke cabinetry seamlessly blends living and dining spaces under lofty vaulted ceilings. Expansive Albertini windows and doors anchored by Brazilian hand-scraped wood floors throughout invite in abundant daylight, invigorating breezes, and panoramic island views, creating a seamless connection to the outdoors. The culinary focal point of the residence is the chef’s kitchen, boasting an expansive countertop and a custom-designed island that serves both as a preparation area and a hub for entertaining.

The business culture has evolved in recent years, making it possible to operate from anywhere in the world. For those who work remotely, there are two dedicated office spaces equipped with built-in desks and tailor-made cabinetry. The main floor offers a corner office while the second-floor tower office features a panoramic 360-degree view and a built-in under counter refrigerator.

Suzanne “Suzy” Harding, our Principle Real Estate Broker for Kukuiʻula, describes this stunning offering as, “one of the best examples of everything that is possible in a custom home at Kukuiʻula. From the views to the gracious and comfortable living space. The home easily expands for family and guest but feels surprisingly intimate when it’s just the owners enjoying time alone.”

As the day draws to a close, family and guests can retire to their generously appointed quarters. The corner master suite, with its island views, boasts an extensive walk-in closet, and an ensuite bathroom complete with hand-crafted cherry cabinets, a soaker tub and a secluded outdoor Hamakua shower. The guest rooms are located in the ‘ohana wing, creating separation from the main house for added privacy. The “Keiki” room includes built-in beds and shares a well-appointed Jack and Jill bathroom with the adjacent guest bedroom. The guest suite provides roomy sleeping space, an ensuite bathroom, wet bar, outdoor shower, and direct access to the backyard and pool area. And if you are looking for more space there is ample property to add-on or build a separate ‘ohana unit.

In true “island style” you find a great deal of your time spent outdoors. Designed to seamlessly meld indoor and outdoor realms, the spacious covered lanai, boasting an outdoor kitchen and sweeping ocean views, is complemented by a ground-level pool and an additional outdoor shower. Spanning nearly an acre, this expansive homesite is wrapped in island inspired landscaping, with secluded gardens and effortlessly maintained plantings.

The home’s energy efficiency, comfort, and interconnectedness are upheld by a Tesla solar system, zoned climate control, sound systems, WiFi, and an intercom. With its inviting ambiance and the full spectrum of modern comforts, this residence encapsulates the essence of an idyllic contemporary Hawaiian abode.

Suzy goes on to say, “Beyond your backyard, you’ll enjoy convenient access to an array of world class amenities, including hiking trails, one of Hawaii’s top-rated golf courses, tennis and newly installed pickleball courts, all the social and dining offerings of The Clubhouse, plus the comprehensive services and activities of Hiʻilani Spa and Wellness Center. Your family will delight in hand harvesting fresh produce from The Farm and cultivated groves just down the hill. This is truly one of those “special” opportunities that’s well worth a visit.”
