Does the Garden Isle have you dreaming of retirement? Whether you’re in the market for a family getaway, vacation home, or an impressive place to hold up after decades of the nine-to-five grind, Kauai’s North Shore is one of the most picturesque places you can find.
This fabulous, five-bedroom, five-full-and-one-half-bathroom paradise combines the lush setting and designer upgrades you’ve been looking for, at a price you’ve been waiting for. Just minutes from Princeville’s best beaches, restaurants, and shops, you’ll enjoy pristine acreage in a move in-ready, custom build, boasting 3,647 square feet of living and entertaining.
Situated on 4.77 acres this idyllic retreat is described as “a perfect horse property” and “a seamless indoor/outdoor living environment with a salt water pool, cabana, spa, and built-in barbecue.”
Currently listed for $2.35 million by Ben Welborn of Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers, the sprawling island property is nestled at the end of a country road, surrounded by lushly landscaped grounds, with rugged mountain peaks in the distance.
There is so much to love about this property and the land it sits on!
“Well beyond the pool, a big red barn sits at the back of the property within a fenced pasture — both were designed with the horse enthusiast in mind. If horses aren’t your thing, then the barn offers a multitude of options for those seeking extra space for work, hobbies, storage, or … you decide. An enclosed veggie garden plot completes this one-of-a-kind country estate,” reads the property description.
Aside from the pool and unbeatable lot, we think buyers will appreciate the designer details throughout, including a top-of-the-line chef’s kitchen with marble counters, vaulted-and-beamed ceiling, spa-like master suite, and guest quarters that are accessed via a private entrance off the porte cochere with a connected full bath.
Upgrades include alder wood trim and doors, aluminum/wood clad windows, quarter-sawn white oak hand-scraped wide-plank floors, Carrara marble, stucco and flagstone veneer, Quartzite stone pool deck, surround sound in living room, WiFi, and more.
The listing agent also made sure to disclose, “The aggregate cost of constructed improvements exceeds the listing price by a large margin – a great value to be sure.”
When I visited Kauai back in 2016, I fell in love with the atmosphere, tropical rain showers, and vibrant green space of the North Shore. Just down the road from the house, you’ll find The St. Regis Princeville Resort, which serves the most incredible brunch — a perfect spot to grab a bite with out-of-town guests.
Sit outside on the Makana Terrace and get swept away by magical Hanalei Bay, Makana Mountain, and the salty ocean breeze. Dining at the resort is open to anyone, not just guests of the hotel. I stayed at the resort and can vouch for its luxurious accommodations – a cushy home base after a long day of house hunting.
Take the eight-mile scenic drive into the town of Hanalei for unbelievable Mai Tai’s at Tahiti Nui and sit where George Clooney bellied up to the bar in the movie “The Descendants.” From the majestic beaches and waterfalls — like the ones featured in “Jurassic Park” — to the iconic Waimea Canyon, Kilauea Lighthouse, legendary surf spots, and all the diverse pockets of island to explore, you’ll never tire of the beauty and lifestyle Kauai affords.
