Exceptional ocean, mountain and sunset views from this six-bedroom estate-quality home on five abundantly landscaped acres in the gated Kohala Ranch community. The Heathers section of the Ranch shares the dry sunny climate of the nearby Kohala Coast resort. This property offers a mini-resort experience with its large pool, hot tub, tennis courts, outdoor kitchen, exercise room with sauna, bocce court, and multiple areas for entertaining both indoors and outdoors.
A winding driveway and porte-cochere welcomes guests into a gracious entry. Two hallways overlook the great room with 30-foot ceilings and view of the ocean beyond. Recently updated by Philpotts and Associates, the living room and media room are divided by a fireplace, flowing into the formal dining room and kitchen. The new contemporary kitchen features top of the line appliances and an extra large center island for informal gatherings.
One wing of the home contains two ocean view master suites and four guest rooms all with en-suite baths and walk-in closets. The other wing, once “maids quarters”, has been converted into a caretaker suite. At over 8,000 sq ft of interior space, this home is believed to be the largest home at Kohala Ranch. Originally built as a corporate retreat, the current owners have transformed it into a warm space for extended family.
Although the entire house is air-conditioned, plantation shutters and sliding doors allow for afternoon on-shore breezes to cool the home naturally. The exterior areas were recently renovated with both covered and uncovered spaces for dining and lounging, and accommodate large parties and events with ease. In the winter, you will see whales breach and the snow covering the summits of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa from your lanai.
Furnishings are available for purchase under separate bill of sale.
