Modern Home in Hawaii on Kauai’s North Shore

Are  you looking for a home that is modern, hip and all together different in Hawaii?  This modern plantation-inspired home on the North Shore of Kauai may very well be where your diligent quest will find its end…  Designed to connect the indoor living environment with an expansive back yard- – the central living area has large pocket doors which disappear into hiding.  Large overhanging eves complete this seamless transition and before you know it you are barefoot on the grass. Clean, crisp details are everywhere to be found.  The kitchen is a chef’s delight.  The bathrooms invite relaxation and a good scrub.  Seeing is believing…

It is so refreshing to find a modern home in the Islands!  One could argue that architecture in Hawaii leaves a lot to be desired, with cookie cutter designs and uninspired material choices being all too common.  Be assured that this is a break from the pattern.  Green and energy conscious solutions complete the picture.  Some of the home’s notable features include:

  • Noritz on demand water heater(s)
  • Glulam beams supporting roof are recycled lumber
  • Mylar reflective under lining of roof to dissapate heat
  • A/C units are Sharp energy efficient splits in all bedrooms
  • Grohe and KWC shower, sink and bath fixtures
  • Merbau brazillian cherry for floors..
  • Fleetwood custom windows/frames throughout (aluminum)
  • FSB door hardware/hinges throughout
  • Ann Saks glass tiles
  • STO stucco on exterior walls and soffits
