Homes For The Island Lifestyle – Lanikai
Beachfront estates in desirable Lanikai are not on the market often. Margy Grosswendt, a Realtor with more than 100 beachfront sales to her credit, has recently listed one of the neighborhood’s premier properties…an exquisite, contemporary-style villa overlooking sandy beachfront, Lanikai’s aquamarine waters, and the iconic Mokulua islands.
The 19,179 square foot estate property, which extends from the street to the shoreline, includes two residences with a total of seven bedroom suites plus a separate caretaker’s apartment. Between the two homes is an outdoor living and entertaining area with a swimming pool, spa, travertine bridge, and covered lanai with an outdoor kitchen in a tropical landscaped setting.
The main home, with its grand, sculptural interior spaces, brings ocean and Mokulua island views in through soaring windows and sliding glass doors on both the lower and upper levels. A total of 8,291 square feet of interior space is augmented by an additional 1,000 square feet of lanais and decks.
The residence is entered via a bridge that spans the swimming pool. A floor-to-ceiling glass atrium with tropical plants adjoins the staircase to the second floor mezzanine. This private space provides another venue for savoring the panoramic view and surrounding gardens.
On the mountain side of the mezzanine is a deep lanai which overlooks the private compound and pool. On opposite wings of this level are two separate, spacious master suites, both with elegant black and white marble baths. A guest master suite is located at ground level, as well as a library and family room.
High-quality detailing and finishes throughout include extensive use of tropical woods, Calacatta marble, travertine, and granite. The kitchen was remodeled in 2015 with a full wall of blue/green glass tile, green granite countertops, a floor-to-ceiling atrium window, and top-of-the-line appliances. Options for dining include a kitchen island with seating for four, a spacious beachfront dining room, and several outdoor areas.
The Mokulua Drive estate, which is walled and gated, includes a three-car garage and parking court.
“It’s all here…” Grosswendt said. “Best location within Lanikai, sandy beachfront, fabulous ocean and Mokulua island views, rare privacy, magical ambiance, and exceptional amenities and design.”
She is showing the property, which is priced at $11,000,000, by appointment to prequalified buyers.
