Amazing Designer Home For Sale in Volcano 'Heart of the Rain Forest'

This custom-built luxury compound, with extraordinary hardwoods and state-of-the-art fixtures, is priced to sell at $785,000.

Nothing says “world class luxury” like a piano in the middle of the rain forest (MLS# 242208)

The owner/builders poured their hearts and round-the-world aesthetic into this architecturally-designed lodge-style retreat. Immense timbers, 13 foot cedar tongue-and-groove ceilings, and window walls opening onto cedar lanais offer a seamless connection between the interior and exterior environments. Four architecturally distinctive, elegantly designed cottages are situated separately from the main house.

In 2009, this house was featured in Hawaiian Style Magazine. Exotic Cumaru (Brazilian teak) hardwood floors run throughout the main house. Beautiful accents are around every corner: double hand-carved Indonesian banana leaf entry doors, purple heart thresholds, mahogany-louvered, and etched-glass interior doors. Even the hand-picked bathroom fixtures will make you say, “WOW!”

The kitchen is made for the gourmet cook: custom Koa cabinets, stainless steel counters, granite island, and Jenn Air Pro series gas range. Lighting design includes contemporary halogen cable lighting, track lighting, and a dining room chandelier by German designer Ingo Maurer.

Also located on the property is a custom-built spa pavilion in the woods. It features a far-infrared color therapy sauna and hot tub. The native forest and landscaping interweaves orchids, anthuriums, bamboos, banana and lime trees, Ohia trees, and Hapu’u tree ferns. The serene wooded neighborhood will make your home a peaceful retreat from the busy world.

Imagine relaxing on your private lanai (MLS# 242208), listening to the sounds of the rain forest…

I have been to the most amazing parties at the property, Maggie Herron on that piano, Paul on the sax, this place rocks…ambiance you can’t get anywhere else, fairly mystical, it is!
Staying in one of the Suites is a perfect getaway for off island vistors or locals looking for the best at their doorstep!
This is the perfect opportunity for a creative person to make a life on the Big Island…..
I can’t wait to meet the new owner…private tour, call me!

The piano is not part of the house anymore! But you can see there is plenty of space in the living room for a piano, sculpture or anything else. We had some awesome parties here!
