Built near a dormant volcano, Hualalai Resort offers centuries-old beauty: azure waters hugged by powdery white beachfront, wildflowers sprinkled along the coastline, and ethereal sunsets that send pink and orange colors dancing across the sky. Those who want a piece of this paradise can find it at the resort’s residential community. Among its newest listings is 72-176 Ke Alaula Street, where a secluded residence, with four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, is situated on one and a half acres of scenic Hawaiian landscape. The 4,243-square-foot home features limestone floors; 10-foot-tall vaulted ceilings; and double, mahogany sliding-glass doors.
Budding chefs will appreciate the generous kitchen, equipped with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, a semicircle granite-top bar, custom-made African-mahogany cabinets, a self-cleaning oven, a range with five sealed burners, and a stainless-steel double dishwasher. The spacious butler’s pantry contains a bar sink, granite countertops, and a temperature-controlled wine cellar.
The master bedroom features large sliding-glass doors that open onto the backyard, as well as tall windows that let in bright rays of sunlight. The master bathroom has black slate floors, a whirlpool, and a glass French door that leads to an outdoor shower encased by stone walls and shrubbery. An outdoor heated swimming pool with a turquoise-tiled spa is set in the backyard near a pool pavilion with carved wood panels. Tropical landscaping, gas tiki torches, and a 577-square-foot covered lanai with plenty of seating add an authentic Hawaii vibe to the property. The residence is currently on the market for $5,250,000. (hualalairealty.com)
