The North Shore – Sunset Beach
A unique home in an iconic North Shore setting has been placed on the market by Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties Realtor and Vice President Carl Higgins. The 21,206-square-foot property extends from the road to the beachfront and overlooks the Sunset Beach surf break that attracts surfers from around the world.
The two-story home, with a living area of 7,800 square feet, is constructed of solid, poured-in-place concrete. Lanais located on the main level, ground floor, and rooftop add another 3,600 square feet of usable space. A second dwelling on the street side of the property consists of an artist’s studio, caretaker’s quarters, garage, and storage rooms. The lanais and most interior spaces overlook spectacular ocean views and the exquisitely landscaped grounds which include a tiled lap pool, tropical gardens, and varieties of palm trees.
“This incredible home – Hale Paumalu -took four years to build and was completed in 2000,” Higgins said. “The owners, who are long-time North Shore residents, surfers, and ocean lovers, decided to create a residence that could withstand the forces of nature. Working with an oceanographer/coral reef expert and a Maui Architect, they designed a home with that capability. It involved excavating as much as 15 feet down in order to tie the structure into the bedrock base, sparing no expense along the way to create strength like no other foundation. A Canadian contractor, one qualified to do this type of build, was brought in along with his crew. In addition to the poured-in-place concrete construction, three-quarter-inch solid glass specialty windows, inch-thick granite imported from Italy and crafted by a master stone-cutter, and solid teak wood in trim and ceilings were installed.”
The home includes four bedrooms, six full baths and two half-baths, a “dream kitchen” with adjoining caterer’s service kitchen, a library with floor-to-ceiling teak shelves, an office with numerous built-ins, leisure and wellness rooms with a deep soaking tub, massage and yoga stations, a master-suite “sanctuary,” an elevator connecting the ground level with the main floor, luxury finishes and high-end detailing throughout. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors showcase the panoramic ocean views and year-round sunsets.
“This is the first time this one-of-a-kind estate has been on the market,” Higgins said. “It is truly an architectural masterpiece designed to complement the natural beauty of the setting. Perched up on a half-acre of prime beach frontage, it overlooks the surf break where Vans World Cup of Surfing is held each year and offers stunning ocean and coastal views all the way to Kaena Point, the westernmost point of Oahu, and beyond.”
The property, priced at $14,400,000 and located at 59-069 Hoalua Street, is being shown by appointment. For information or to arrange a showing, contact Carl Higgins (R) at 284-2459.
