Kicking back and enjoying a luxe island lifestyle is effortless at this private, gated compound in the exclusive South Kalaheo area of Beachside, Kailua. Not only does the home offer sweeping ocean views and seamless indoor/outdoor environs ideal for entertaining, but the lushly landscaped lot is akin to paradise with its towering coconut trees, palms, and exotic red and pink anthurium.
There’s also an endless stretch of sandy, white beach for unbridled time, and the added bonus of having a front-row seat to Fourth of July fireworks right from your very own back yard.
“This stunning beachfront estate is situated on the coveted south end of the bay, which was just named the ‘No. 1 Beach in the Nation’ for the second time in a row,” as reported by the AP News, says Tracy Allen of Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties, who is listing the residence for $12.5 million.
“The indoor/outdoor floor plan is complete with numerous custom architectural details, and is further highlighted by gorgeous tropically landscaped grounds, allowing for true island living.”
Found on a 25,127-square-foot parcel of land and 83 linear feet of beach frontage property at 146 S. Kalaheo Ave.—near hiking trails and Kailua Town, known for its local shops, restaurants and cafés, and farmers’ markets—the property features a main home with five bedrooms, and a separate, two-bedroom guest house outfitted with a kitchen, living room, workshop and duo of courtyards.
Expect coastal-inspired living space flooded with abundant natural light, with one of the highlights definitely the sumptuous master suite showcasing a designer showroom closet; porcelain-tiled bath with his-and-her vanities, and an oval, jetted soaking tub; and sliding plantation shutters and glass doors leading to a flagstone deck.
Another stand-out feature: the gourmet kitchen outfitted with a butler’s pantry, custom, shaker-style white cabinetry, an oversized island with dual sinks, granite countertops, and Thermador and Sub-Zero appliances, with one side of the kitchen opening onto a lanai with a pool, lounging and entertaining areas, and the backdrop of the beautiful Koolau Mountains.
