South Kauai 3.5 Acre Estate: Coastline Views and Tropical Forest Valley
This rare 3.5 acre Kauai estate features a well-designed island home, built to take advantage of panoramic coastline views and cool ocean tradewinds on its topside 1.5 acres, and natural walking paths and terraces throughout its 2-acre tropical forest valley, the perfect shinrin-yoku setting, with a 20-minute drive to Poipu beaches and cafes.
This meticulously maintained 2-bedroom 2-bath suite Hawaii style home with an office and attached garage was constructed in 2010 and features 2,230 sqft of indoor-outdoor island living. Vaulted ceilings, tasteful finishing details and lighting, custom cabinetry and built-ins, engineered Brazilian Cherry wood floors, and Milgaard patio doors and jalousie windows throughout.
Its spacious covered deck is located off the living area and master bedroom suite, on the leeward side of the home, and overlooks the great lawn, across the valley with sunset views of West Kauai.
Once part of the McBryde Estate, this property’s panoramic views are protected by the 4-Unit Condominium Property Regime (CPR) view corridor setbacks and easements. CPR Units 1, 2, and 4 are built out with substantial private homes. The CPR’s private driveway’s variegated vegetation creates a garden setting with a wide variety of trees and tropical vegetation.
The buyer may choose to expand the home to 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and add a swimming pool and spa on the 1-acre level grassed building site. The existing 2-bedroom 2-bath home will make an excellent guest/pool house addition. Utilities in place.
Shinrin-yoku is a term meaning “taking in the forest atmosphere” or “forest bathing,” a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine. The idea is simple: if a person simply visits a natural area and walks in a relaxed way, there are calming, rejuvenating, and restorative benefits to be achieved. We have always known this intuitively, and the buyer of this exclusive property would make it a reality.
