Ever since I first came across this house, it’s been lingering in the back of my mind – and it’s for sale – so I think it’s only fair to share it…
Waimea Bay Fortress, 59-779 Kamehameha Hwy, Haleiwa, HI 96712 (MLS# 201501796)
Maybe you’ve heard of this property referred to as “The Fortress,” a premier oceanfront property conveniently perched and perfectly elevated on a point between Waimea Bay and Three Tables Beach, offering you full advantage of the extraordinary surroundings.
Located just a short distance to the grocery store or the Waimea Valley for hiking, dining, and entertainment, this “Fortress” is protected by a natural sea/breakwall. The home is built from the ground up with approximately 4,100 sq.ft. of interior living space, with lots of natural light with windows and high 9 ft. ceilings.
This residence is perfect for large groups, with 5 bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, 4 lanais, custom windows with hurricane-rated glass, central A/C, surround sound system, and a state-of-the-art security system. Interior finishes include walnut cabinetry, granite and Corian surfaces, and custom built-ins. The kitchen is fully loaded for chefs, and entertaining. There is also private 3(+) car parking.
Every part of this home was well-conceived. Inside, the finished carpentry and custom built-ins are seamlessly featured throughout. A bonus feature is that it even has underground electricity. This home is unrivaled in quality and most amiable in the Waimea Bay area.
Upon entering The Fortress, which is air-conditioned and so well insulated, you cannot hear the pounding of even the most massive waves just offshore. This shows us just how well-built the house is. The home lays on a solid stone foundation that is a few feet deep, and there are gorgeous Tuscany rock walls along the perimeter of the property, which to the naked eye are impeccable.
The Beauty of Waimea Bay
Waimea Bay, year-round, is one of my most favorite places. Indulge in the polar opposite energy here from huge and powerful winters to calm crystal clear and glassy summers. All of this stupendousness while your views are expansive and unobstructed.
This home is arranged with an entertainment room on the second floor, where you’re able to enjoy in comfort the out-of-the-elements, private, close-up view of the spot where the world-famous Eddie Aikau big wave surfing event is held (if and when the waves and weather conditions meet the requirements). The view is spectacular — a view that is simply unsurpassable! Grab a beverage of your choice and watch the waves from the private in-ground pool with adjoining gazebo!
This property can also be purchased with the Seller’s Three Tables residence next door for an additional $3,950,000. (59-777 Kam Hwy).
