Ahualoa Custom Home Listing – “The Silk Road Hideaway”

This home is situated in a peaceful setting with 3 bed/3 bath, and approx 2,306 sq. ft.

This home is a custom home listed for sale, located in Ahualoa on The Big Island of Hawaii, belonging to owners who have created an “Orient Express Retreat Destination” feeling.

A glass cabinet, displaying Imari fine China, imparts the theme lending towards the Asian style. The concept repeats itself in a myriad of ways, and captures one’s imagination. The home appealed to me as a stand out on the recent caravan with its feeling of being a zen retreat.

The custom design incorporates landscaping, which leads the visitor through the approach via stepping stones, deliberately placed amongst wooden and stone carved sentries, who watch the Iron Pagodas and hear the gentle trickle of nearby water features. The path leads through a carefully planted grove of Japanese, Himalayan, and Sumatran Bamboo. The stunning carved door is a definite “wow” feature at the end of the path, but at the entrance of the home. Owners are collectors and connoisseurs of fine art, and designed the home to accentuate the best architectural features with stunning doors and screens, which compound the outside glimpses of a verdant and lush landscape.

The 3 bed/3 bath home of approx 2,306 sq. ft. is on a few acres of land, priced at $635,000. (MLS# 237922).

Every element has a posture of careful consideration using color, bold artwork, and the placement of dramatic antiques  in the interior construction, which certainly adds to the impact of the home. It is a delightful blend of location, style, architecture, and art all situated in a peaceful setting. I call it the “Silk Road Hideaway”…but you can call it home.
