Oceanfront Modern Luxury Living on Hawaii’s Big Island Kona Coast
Elegant, contemporary, and green, this oceanfront custom home offers the ultimate in modern luxury living on Hawaii Island’s west side. The spacious, multi-level property sits gently on the dramatic Kona Coast with panoramic ocean, shoreline, and Hualalai Mountain views within the prestigious Ke Alohi Kai gated community.
An attractive, slightly sloping lava-like paver drive lined with mature tropical landscaping creates a welcoming entry. Stepping through to the courtyard via large stone pads over a tranquil saltwater pond, a refined, minimalist water feature is showcased fronting the main residence, a guest suite, and one-bedroom detached guest house.
The broad open floor plan, soaring ceilings, abundant windows, and pocket- door sliders invite bright natural light and cooling trades to filter through the home. Sleek, clean lines dominate throughout with unique textural elements creating contrast in some spaces.
A neutral palette carries from the outside in with El Dorado Stone walls, and Unicom Starker Porcelain Tile flooring featured throughout the home, including the ground level pool deck and the spacious wraparound covered lanais found on the main and upper levels.
Artistic light fixtures, large, ultra-modern ceiling fans, custom glass railings inside and out, a suspended walnut staircase with structural glass landing, and temperature-controlled wine storage units – one in the pantry and one in the two-car detached garage – are among the many fine details. Convenience and comfort are provided by zoned air conditioning, custom roller shades throughout, two sets of Electrolux washers and dryers, and wired security cameras and alarm system. A 58-panel solar voltaic array sits atop the two-car detached garage, giving a nod to sustainable living.
Top of the line Miele appliances are secreted away in the large, open kitchen with its glossy white Poggenpohl custom cabinetry. The fully-appointed outdoor kitchen is outfitted with Danver by Brown Jordan cabinetry, Hestan barbecue with two-burner side stove, and a concrete sink. A broad staircase leads from this lanai to the ground level with its oceanfront mosaic-tiled pool with Tucci umbrellas providing shade on the pool deck. A towering ki‘i (protective image) custom carved by a local artist from Red Eucalyptus presides over the relaxing space.
The massive master suite and two guest suites are found on the upper level with its attractive natural wood shelf-lined foyer and stunning views. The master includes its own bar area with built-in Miele coffee maker, sink, and refrigerator drawers, while the ensuite bath highlight is a Victoria and Albert soaking tub.
Ke Alohi Kai is a peaceful oasis located just about midway between Kailua-Kona Village and Keauhou, allowing privacy and convenience. Numerous cultural and recreational opportunities are nearby, as well as great shopping and dining experiences.
Beautifully appointed, the home is offered furnished with the exception of select artwork.
