Enjoy panoramic views and so much more at Hoonanea Ranch (MLS# 297549)

Located at 28-666 Kaupakuea Homestead Road in Pepeekeo, this property is 23 acres of incredible beauty. Now, I’ve sold real estate in Hawaii for a long time and you’ll have to forgive me if I gush about this property; it really is just that incredible.

Noteworthy Features

For starters, this equestrian property is like living in your own private retreat with rolling lawn and pastures. Situated at the end of a long private driveway at an elevation that offers Pacific Ocean views, you can watch horses gallop across wide-open fields. Or relax on one of the many outdoor lanais (decks) listening to the songs of native Hawaiian birds or the gurgling of the stream that runs through the property.

Form meets function in this meticulously crafted home that was built in 2008. From the minute you enter through the custom wooden front door you can see the high level of quality materials and finishes used throughout the 4 bed, 2.5 bath home.

Light and airy with gorgeous views and a cozy stone fireplace, the great room offers relaxed country living

Within the main living area you’ll find a large open kitchen with plenty of counter space, a dining bar (excellent for entertaining!), and top-of-the-line appliances. It flows seamlessly to the great room with its cathedral ceiling and cozy fireplace.

What really gives you a feeling of being in your own private ranch resort is that the master suite wing is detached from the main house for added privacy (the two are connected by a covered breezeway). The master suite features a romantic fireplace, large walk-in closet with custom built-ins, and a luxurious spa bath and rain shower. A separate guest suite (4th bedroom) even offers a study that can be used as an office.
