Kona Open House For Mid-Century Modern Oceanfront Home By Architect Charles M. Wickett
The Open House this Thursday (July 5, 2012) from 9 am to 2 pm is a great opportunity to see this magnificent home (MLS# 250466)!
This home was designed by the late architect Charles Wickett of Newport Beach for his own family as a vacation home at Kahalu’u Beach, Kona, Hawaii. It is truly a masterpiece and now offered for sale for $2,600,000.
You will find a huge wow factor when entering the amazing large copper door, as the location is superb and breathtaking – and it just starts there. The home will continue to amaze you with the attention to detail and simple elegant appointments throughout, all the rooms with a view. “Lanai snorkel” and watch the tropical reef fish right from the lanai as you sip a cup of Kona coffee.
This home has old growth cedar walls trimmed in mahogany with handcrafted mahogany doors. The original Redwood louvers add to the airflow.
Mid-century modern in Hawaii is superb! I saw firsthand with the Frank Lloyd Wright designed home in Kamuela Hawaii, which sold 2 years ago (with Wright designed furniture included), and the 2 homes designed by Vladimir Ossipoff here in Kona (one of which is for sale oceanfront as well).
I have really been awed by the way these three late architects have taken the natural surroundings and incorporated the setting with the home design to bring and meld the outside environment with the inside of the home!
Here is your chance to come and see an amazing home offered at Kahalu’u. You will find yourself with visions of living here forever.
