The Hanalei Bison Ranch in Princeville, Kauai ($32M)

Situated in the heart of Kauai’s North Shore, the Hanalei Bison Ranch boasts more than 228 acres of riverfront land so beautifully diverse that it will take your breath away. Bordering part of this pastoral estate is the Hanalei River, an American Heritage River that flows by the Hanalei National Wildlife Refuge. The property’s three residential dwellings are set on a bluff, offering unmatched views of the slopes of Mt. Waialeale and Hanalei Valley. The land descends gently from the bluff to a riverside plateau with potential for agricultural improvement, additional home sites, and more residential dwellings. Currently, fruit grows and bison graze on the lush, lower flat lands. Start your day picking fresh fruit grown on site and end it drinking in views of the sun setting into the Pacific Ocean.

The warm terracotta roofline set against the majestic mountain peaks creates an exotic, enchanted atmosphere from the moment you arrive under the porte-cochere of the main entrance. The use of clerestory windows usher outside light in and projecting eaves keep rain out, so windows can be kept open and the tradewinds can circulate throughout this secluded house’s open spaces. Influenced by C.W. Dickey, the father of Hawaiian architecture, and designed by Nishikawa Architects, this gated escape was the winner of BIA Hawaii’s 2016 Grand Award for design excellence and it’s easy to see why!
