4 bedroom, 3-1/2 bath house built for the location and climate by a designer/builder who has lived in the area for over 48 years. Built for gracious, accessible, and efficient living. Private driveway runs through a wooded area, opening to pasture and plantings of native Ohia and Hapu’u, tropical rhododendrons and Formosan Cherry trees.
Covered lanai and entry are sheltered from prevailing winds and weather. The great room has views to the treed pasture with the ocean beyond. Beautiful fireplace anchors the living area. Open concept dining room and kitchen are located on the east side of house to take advantage of morning light. The kitchen is an ergonomic design with two sinks, lots of storage in drawers with overhead glass fronted cabinets, as well as a pantry.
Floors are wide plank eucalyptus robusta. Meticulous detailing includes solid mango wood cabinets, bar tops, fireplace mantel, and surround. Old growth Douglas fir elements delineate living, dining, kitchen and hall areas. The mango, along with silk oak and eucalyptus used in the stairway were all locally harvested, milled and fabricated by the builder.
A covered walkway with no level changes leads from the garage to the informal family entry, with built-in coat, hat, shoe cubbies and window seat with storage underneath.
The hall ahead is bright and wide with built in storage behind sliding doors and topped by exceptional mango wood at chest high, making a wonderful place to display special objects.
The hall connects the great room to the stairway and the accessible master en-suite beyond. There is a discreet powder room off the stair well. Upstairs are two bedrooms, a hall closet and a full bath. A generous additional bedroom with full bath with its own entry located next to the garage.
