Molokai Sea Ranch: Outbuilding Edition

The previous blog, Molokai Sea Ranch: An Opportunity to Own a Beachfront Estate, highlights the main house (MLS# 374277) and Papohaku Beach, the sandy coastline on which it resides. An often overlooked benefit of this estate is its many outbuildings and their uses.

Caretakers’ Ohana

Connected to the workshop and paddlers’ house via a pergola covered breezeway is the Caretakers’ Ohana. A bedroom loft, 1.5 bath, and open great room with kitchen, office, living, and dining areas expand 2 stories with vaulted ceilings. Sliding doors open to the covered lanai with incredible ocean views, dining area, and sundeck with hot tub.

Paddlers’ House

This building consists of two floors, the first floor houses a suite with private entry, and the second floor has 3 beds and an open great room with a kitchen, dining, and sitting areas. In total, this dwelling accommodates 9 people comfortably and shares a roof with the workshop.

This is a true workshop built for a builder or enthusiastic hobbyist. Again, vaulted ceilings and 2 story windows allow for any size project.

Artists’ Studio

The 2-story artists’ studio with floor to ceiling windows allows sunshine and ocean views to stream in to get your creative juices flowing. Over-sized double sinks are conveniently located close by for easy cleanup, and an outdoor shower is located on the makai (ocean) side for bigger messes. An upstairs suite has a full bath, sitting area, and sleeping quarters under vaulted ceilings with ocean views.

The Grounds

The grounds are not to be outshone by the structures. The landscaping varies from arid to lush, with many surprises throughout the property. Whether it’s a hidden hammock, a rustic bench, a horse corral, or even a regulation horseshoe pit, this truly is an incredible space to unplug and let your creativity flow. (Verizon provides coverage to this area.)

Hike through the many meadow trails that intersect with axis deer paths and be inspired by the ocean, beach, and informal landscaping. Who knows, maybe you’ll finally find the inspiration for that novel you’ve always wanted to write.
