If you have a few million sitting around and have been jonesing for a North Shore estate in Kauai, Craig T. Nelson has listed his Haena Point home, and what a beauty it is.
And if you want a little more celebrity in your celebrity home, you’ll be happy to note that Beach Boy Brian Wilson owned the five-acre property previously. However, Nelson and his wife, Doria, were the ones that worked with an architect to create a Hawaiian home that takes advantage of every single bit of view the land offers, Mansion Global reports.
And can we talk about those views? The property is actually two parcels — a 4.3-acre beachfront parcel and a 1.5-acre garden parcel. The listing includes about 380 feet of beach frontage on Tunnels Beach and overlooks the base of Mount Makana.
“ The fertile natural abundance at Haena Point is clearly evident upon entering the gate and winding through the grounds into a world unto itself that evokes a powerful sense of place,” said listing agent Joyce Funk with Elite Pacific Properties. “Lava rock walls, decades-old Monkey Pods, Norfolks, Ironwoods and stands of Hala adorn the abundant landscape.”
The two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath, 2,738 square foot, single-level home boasts plenty of natural finishes, including Australian Boxwood, Koa, and Teak.
The home, Funk said, “was created and built with an artisanship that fuses nature with lifestyle.”
A substantial common area replicates the light and airy feel of the beach it overlooks thanks to open-beam cathedral ceilings. Every room — from the kitchen to the master suite to the entertaining areas — showcase views of the beach, mountains, and Kanaha Reef, “where net fishermen, skimming kite surfers and water enthusiasts of all kinds provide provocative imagery plying the crystalline azure waters,” Funk said.
And if golf is a passion, legendary golf course designer Robert Trent Jones Jr. created a par 3 green and bunker complex for the property, situated behind the home.
The home is listed for $14 million and comes fully furnished. Want to see more? Click here.
