Skip the Stairs

If you’ve been home shopping anywhere on Hawaii Loa Ridge, you’ve doubtless learned that the neighborhood’s restrictions against cantilevered homes has yielded both intended (i.e., a residential neighborhood that adheres tightly to Hawaii’s natural topography) and unintended (i.e., stairs, stairs, and more stairs) results. The unique placement of this 14,548 sqr ft, rim & flag lot positioned it perfectly to hold something very hard to find here: a huge 5,100 sqr ft luxury home that has only 2 floors. To reach this size, many Ridge homes have been built into the hillside as 3-story, sloped, walk-downs without the possibility of elevators. Not here. This home’s ground floor houses deep and wide, interconnected areas for the activities of daily living, virtually all on one level. The upper floor is reserved for bedrooms.

In The Details

full color, full size images are visible in the hd gallery below

Touch of Class

Before you’ve entered two feet into this home, you’ll come face-to-face with eye-popping craftsmanship like this inlaid mosaic entry tile. Stunning.

#Amirite?

Touch of Glass

Look up. Illuminating the entry and its mosaic is this chandelier. Chandeliers like this are one of very few home finishes that have never gone out of style since they first appeared in the 16th century.

Tradition Abounds

Despite its modern conveniences and Hawaiian in/outdoor flow, you’ll find a HUGE scoop of traditional style designed into this home in a neo-classical fusion, for instance, the stair rail.

The Total package

The full suite of stainless appliances includes all of the standards plus this warming drawer. You’ll know the names of heavy hitters like Viking®, SubZero®, Bosch®, and more.

This is cool

Have you seen trendy black slate pool decks? Uh … burn much?!?!? Cool, textured (i.e., slip-resistant), classic flagstone remains one of the smartest, longest lasting pool deck choices.

Cookin' with gas

Hawaii isn’t the natural gas capital of anything, after all, we don’t need to heat our houses. Thankfully, this home is plumbed with propane so you can still cook like a pro here. 

Tiki Torches

And, since you’ve got propane, you’ve also got tiki torches to illuminate and add ambiance to your ocean view pool deck. [Music cue: Even the Nights are Better by Air Supply]

Massage therapy

Need a hot, bubbly spa treatment with an ocean view? Pop into your 8-person poolside hot tub. Want it with extra privacy? The owners suite’s Jacuzzi® tub is just the ticket. Best view in the house.

modernity

Milgard® vinyl windows are energy efficient, double paned, and seem to last forever compared to the aluminum windows of Hawaiian days past. We found these very easy to open and close securely.

Fine Fixtures

Certain brands are synonymous with luxury homes and Grohe® is one of them. This faucet is German-built precision with a classic style.

A place for all

When your HUGE kitchen is backup by a pantry that is a room of its own (~62 sq ft), if you run out of space to put things … even the great Ms. Stewart will doubtless take a knee in your presence.

Climate Control

New to Hawaii? You’ll love the ease of this home’s central AC. When you’ve acclimated and don’t need AC anymore, you’ll still love it a few days a year when the trade winds take short breaks in the summer.

Norm Rockwell who?

Formal and holiday dinners will take on a warm alabaster glow like we’ve only experienced in the fine manor houses of England. 20th century Americana – eat your heart out!

#BeOurGuest

Solid as a Rock

Granite counters to be sure. Full of beautiful movement, these remind us of Pergaminho granite from Brazil. Extending it as a backsplash is a smart, unifying design choice. The eased edge is both modern and lovely. 

Pasta Arm

Another benefit of a granite backsplash is the way it affords the installation of a pot-filler above the gas stove. Luxury is oft defined by simple, beautiful convenience, is it not? Not a fan of pasta? Fill your watering can here.

Don't be knotty

Kempas (Koompassia malaccensis) hardwood flooring [Janka scale = 1710] is paired in higher traffic areas with a matching engineered cherry plank. Travertine beautifies areas of highest indoor/outdoor traffic.

Raise a glass

The wet bar off of the formal dining area is ready to be stocked with your favorite beverages held perfectly at temperature in two, new, under-cabinet Vinotemp® refrigerators.

safety first!

The Pointe is an electronic-gated community inside a guard-gated community. Do things get safer? Is it any wonder that this place gets an A+ for safety from CrimeGrade.org?

Pool House

Looking for an extra FULL bathroom? Look no further than the pool deck where the pool house is a room place to tidy yourself up before AND after a dip.

Heavenly Light

Light up the night with landscape lighting in all of the numerous garden beds. Uplights into the pool deck’s palms create a dramatic and iconically-tropical canopy for your outdoor gatherings.

The pinnacle without the climb

“Hawaii Loa Ridge houses are beautiful but when we were shopping for one, this one stood out for one reason – living on one level. Essentially every similarly priced, similarly place Ridge home has all of the modern conveniences and a great view. But wow are there a lot of stairs. I mean, I like stairs as much as the next guy but when I saw this house, with all of the living space on essentially one level, I was sold. Years of living here have only served to reinforce my initial decision. It’s why I refer to this place as ‘The pinnacle without the climb.’ I still have all of best of Hawaii Loa living and can save my energy for golf.”
