Award-Winning Contemporary Beauty Back on the Market at Kuki‘o

Winner of the 2016 HGTV Ultimate House Hunt Award for “Bringing the Outside In” Kuki‘o MB20 | $7.2M | 5BR/5BA | 6,713 interior | 1.94 acres | MLS# 609175

Contemporary and sustainable, this showcase estate at Kukio, one of the Big Island’s most exclusive residential club communities and one of the world’s most cherished zip codes, presents quintessential tropical luxury living.

Naturally inspired design elements and beautifully manicured, minimalist landscaping blend into the stunning lava fields and native grasses, leaving a soft, carefully-considered footprint on the environment.

Situated perfectly to catch trade winds for natural ventilation, its broad over-hanging roofline provides shade for the home’s expansive lanais. The home’s free-form floor plan seamlessly combines outdoor and indoor living areas. Every room features unobstructed panoramic views and natural lighting, creating a home that is bright and breezy throughout the day, while magical sunsets set the tone for evening entertainment.

Located in Kukio’s, Maniniowali community on the toney Kona Coast, this expansive five-bedroom, 6,713 square foot home overlooks the scenic coastline with its clear aquamarine and sapphire-toned waters and nearby to the large, white sand beach, called Kua Bay.

Enticing lap pool and spa directly off the expansive lanai.

Ideal for those seeking an active lifestyle, a lap pool extends off the lanai and a three-car garage allows plenty of storage for your “toys” –bikes, scuba gear, surfboards and more – to enjoy ocean fun at nearby Kua Bay and additional beaches and coves along the coast.

Four separate buildings make up the 6,713 square feet of living space, with five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, and office. Added bonus? A temperature-regulated, walk-in wine room for your collection of fine wines.

Walk-in wine room. 

The buildings include: The Main House with great room, kitchen, master bedroom and bath, and office; Guest House 1 includes two bedrooms and two baths; Guest House 2 has one bedroom and 1 bath; and an expansive fourth building houses the garage, the temperature-controlled wine room, office and bath.

The Great Room’s living room area with furnishings to match the minimalist architecture. 

The home’s finishes complement the contemporary, minimalist architectural style built by Nicholson, LLC.
