Property Details

How would an avant-garde Los Angeles architect choose to create his tropical Hawaiian lifestyle, free of mold, abundant with light. This is one of a kind architecture, not a typical plantation or resort style home and what Keola magazine called 'site-specific live-in sculpture'. <br><br>Consisting of a main house and a connected structure that functions as guest house and art studio, the compound is built of 8' thick concrete and sustainably harvested woods. The sensuous curves of the walls inspired the home's name: 'Nalukea' or 'white wave'.<br><br>Designed for indoor-outdoor living, the interior space of the main house is so filled with light that there is no need for artificial light on even a rainy day. Cooling tradewinds enter by day; the deep concrete slab radiates heat into the home at night. The acoustics of the central great room are so exceptional that professional musicians have asked to perform there.<br><br>The master suite consists of an alcove with built-in platform bed, a walk-in closet, and a bath with bidet and custom tub. Three guest bedrooms are currently used as a library, meditation room, and media room. All have doors to an exterior curved deck that connects them to a full bath.<br><br>The kitchen features concrete counters, stainless appliances, and custom cabinets designed to deter bugs and mold that can be problematic in tropical climates.<br><br>Visiting guests enjoy greater privacy in the studio, where stairs lead to 820 sq ft of second floor space for sleeping and creating art. Downstairs, behind three carport spaces, are a full bath, laundry room, large utility room used for dying silk, a shop and tool room.<br><br>The avocado orchard produced over 2700 lbs for sale this season. Other trees include coconut, mango, pacai, lychee, citrus, lilikoi, pomegranite and palms. Sitting areas are sculpted into the parklike setting.<br><br>Carefully chosen for the home, select furnishings may be available under separate bill of sale.
