HGTV’s 2017 Ultimate House Hunt Winner – Waiaha Estates, Hawaii

I’m thrilled and humbled to share that one of my current featured properties – Waiaha Estates in Holualoa – has been named HGTV’s Ultimate House Hunt Winner for 2017 in the “Outdoor Retreats” category.

More than 1 million votes were cast to determine the winners! Many thanks to those who selected Waiaha Estates as their favorite in this category and congratulations to all my colleagues who participated in the contest this year. The competition was especially strong in 2017 with so many incredible homes entered from all over the world.

$14.5M | Waiaha Estates | 5,391 Sq. Ft. | 90 acres on Hualalai Slopes | MLS #295006

Surrounded by 90+ acres of upcountry natural beauty, the property includes a lighted tennis court with pavilion, two large pools, golf driving range, bocce ball court, macadamia nut, coffee and citrus orchard, expansive ocean and Kona coastline views, and a well-established koi pond. Have a traditional luau in mind? No problem, an Imu (underground oven) is on the tropical grounds as well!

The interior architecture and design complement the serene, rustic setting with soaring ceilings and plentiful, large windows and sliders to allow the outside in, while native Koa wood cabinetry mirrors the surrounding trees.
