Mediterranean Design Meets Hawaiian Landscaping In This Exquisite Niu Luxury Villa
In these islands a common saying is, “lucky we live Hawaii.” That phrase means a number of things in terms of the many ways we are grateful to live in such a beautiful place. One of those benefits of living in Hawaii is the fact that we are home to many different people from around the world who have converged here to call Hawaii home. The significance of that is a nouveau mixed culture that is a blend of Hawaii, Polynesia, Asia, North America, Africa, the Middle East, South America, and Europe. This convergence of multi-ethnic people carries into the nuances of our food, culture, and even the design of our homes as we share the best of all worlds.
One exciting example of this is an exquisite Mediterranean style luxury villa that is on the market in the Niu Beach neighborhood on the island of Oahu. Read on as we place a spotlight on this unique home and the reasons this could be the answer to your Hawaii life with an international vibe.
Mediterranean Design With Premium Finishes & Materials
If you dream of Italy, Greece, or Morocco you are more than likely a romantic — so modern with clean lines and minimalism doesn’t meet your style the way “a romantic villa in Italy or Morocco” would. Think of the box office hit, “Under the Tuscan Sun,” and you’ll know where I’m going with this. The architecture and design style of villas in the Mediterranean seems to conjure up feelings of romance and the old world character of a time when things were a lot slower. A world where making time for friends and family over a glass of wine and delicious food is a lifestyle that exudes luxury and a bit of glamour. This is the type of ambience you sense when you walk into this special home. No expense was spared for choosing materials and finishes such as the Sustainable strandwoven hardwood floors, the glamorous chandeliers from the entry way, to the formal dining, and the double chandelier statement in the gourmet kitchen. Crown molding and a Taj Mahal Quartz island combined with granite counters for the area under the cabinetry are all thoughtful details that the owners spared no expense on. The list goes on and too many to cover here, however, a detailed description is available upon request.
Open Floor Plan With 2 Separate Bedroom Wings
A favorite and best feature of this home is the single level open floor plan with bedrooms wings on each side, which allows the family to converge together in the kitchen and intimate living areas and yet have privacy when needed especially upon winding down for bedtime. There are several intimate social spaces such as the Great room with the formal dining and living area, which flows into the family room and the expansive chef’s kitchen with three ovens including a convection oven. The Taj Mahal kitchen island can seat 10 people. This was thoughtfully made for either a young family to be able to cook dinner while watching their little ones play, or for entertaining visiting guests, as you have lively conversation while preparing a home-cooked meal.
The Hawaii trend toward multi-generational families living together can easily be accommodated with this flexible floor plan. The single level is also very rare for a five bedroom home and adds value, especially for older or very young family members who can benefit from not having to go up and down stairways.
For more entertaining options the French doors open to the enclosed Piazza to allow a flow from the outdoors in. There’s an expansive contemporary gunite pool with serene blue tiles and a new built-in barbecue for delicious outdoor cooking. This home has everything you need.
Incredible Location In East Oahu Luxury Neighborhood With Beautiful Hawaiian Landscaping
Make no mistake — this is a luxury Mediterranean style villa, but there is no doubt you are in Hawaii with all the stunning Hawaiian plants in the landscaping around the grounds of this home. There are over 100 palms surrounding the home, creating a sense of privacy and helping to shield the home from the elements. Perhaps one of the greatest assets is its location in proximity to getting to and from metro Honolulu for a busy professional and an active family. You are close enough for a quick commute yet far enough away from the busy city hustle. As you enter this elegant home, it feels like you’re in a secluded villa. The best of both worlds are right here at 5763 Kalanianaole in the East Oahu luxury neighborhood of Niu Beach.
