North Shore Kauai, Hawaii

10,000 sqft Interior Living and 8,000 sqft Exterior Living BEDROOMS: 6 | BATHROOMS: 8.5 | ACRES: 15.33

PRICE: $70,000,000


he north shore of Kauai is a tropical oasis where fluted emerald peaks ascend into azure skies and aqua waters beckon to be explored. Around every corner, rainforests drip in plant life and waterfalls gush from mountaintops, adding to the many reasons why this isolated paradise is known as Hawaii’s Garden Isle. Overlooking the vast Pacific on the northernmost bluffs of this special locale sits a quintessential compound, the Sanctuary at Secret Beach (MLS# 604795). This north shore haven is situated in one of the most impressive locales in Hawaii and lays claim to an unprecedented panoramic view of the ocean. Embraced by more than 15 acres of lavish landscape, solace is as much of a given as the scenery at this private Kilauea retreat which bestows the most unforgettable home-away-from-home.

The 10,000-square foot residence is perched upon a prominent cliff trimmed with verdant ravines that grant the estate its signature essence. The lava rock precipice serves as a natural barricade, while at the same time, accords sweeping seaside vistas from every vantage point on the property. The historic Kilauea Lighthouse resides on an overlook a short distance away and adds to the many scenic attributes that sets this hideaway apart. And while the property rests on a ridge, access to Kauai’s famed shoreline is made easy by way of a concealed staircase that winds down to Kauapea Beach below where hardly a soul ever traverses. Upon entering the secure confines of this home, called Hale ‘Ae Kai, only peace of mind and serenity prevail. The driveway stretches past an impeccably maintained organic tree farm and glides toward the home’s noble corridor. The entrance extends into a foyer that floats atop a pond embellished with greenery and leads into the residence’s main pavilion where nature’s grandeur is immediately flaunted by virtue of floor to ceiling windows. The inviting décor of the home is accented by rich coffee tones and subtle Balinese design. Divided into four pavilions connected by sheltered open air walkways, the main dwelling includes four bedrooms and six and a half baths. Every aspect of the property features amenities like a fitness room, indoor/outdoor showers and sophisticated Southeast Asian heirlooms and artistry. Two private guest suites sit adjacent to the main home and an on-site caretaker residence is tucked away from the main villa, comprised of two bedrooms and two baths. ■ | 5

Outdoor living space, coupled with undertones of salt air and aromatic blossoms, thrives at this fortress where spending entire days on the grounds is effortless. Losing track of time isn’t difficult meandering through the working farm where coconut and citrus trees grow, cozying into nooks of rainforest-inspired respite or sitting in the shade of a palm tree near the cliff’s edge. Time also comfortably slips by while admiring Hawaii’s wildlife like Laysan albatross and humpback whales from the comfort of one of the many outdoor alcoves. A spacious infinity pool allows for swimming laps or relaxing dips, and a Jacuzzi and fire pit add to the allure as the night sky floods with stars. The 8,000 square feet of outdoor living space also includes a formal dining area that showcases the expansive coastal landscape and makes dining with friends and family uncomplicated, yet extraordinary. Though the property is essentially an island unto itself, the charm is that it’s only a short drive to the most highly coveted, unspoiled destinations on Kauai. Luscious jungles and hidden beaches decorate this region of the island and comfortable, remote spots to lounge are as abundant as the beautiful landscapes. The venerated Napali Coast is also only a mere boat ride away and private tours of locations like Limahuli Garden and Preserve can be accomplished with ease. Profound scenery enhanced by distinguishable architectural features, and privacy coupled with the ability to access the most esteemed remote locations on the gorgeous north shore of Kauai, make the Sanctuary at Secret Beach a package of paramount proportions. ■

a palette of rare, slip-matched afromosia veneers, rift-sawn oak, honed limestone, patinated bronze and fabricated steel, the designer and architect have forged an interior that offers timeless references to Northwest nature and aesthetics, while establishing an ingeniously transparent framework for the city’s most dramatic and exceptional outlooks. In one of Seattle’s original residential high-rises, set toward the north end of Belltown and situated to allow for panoramic views over all of the urban core, Puget Sound, Pike Place Market, and the Olympic Mountains to the west, and Lake Union, Seattle Center, the Space Needle and Cascade Mountains to the north and east. Because of its early construction, the tower enjoys surrounding zoning that protects many of its views by limiting the heights of neighboring buildings, yielding a uniquely wide-angle outlook over Seattle. Of particular note is its unobstructed view of the Space Needle that creates aperture-filling images of Seattle’s most renowned architectural monument. Indeed, the setbacks of the building are such that views can be treated as primary art in its penthouse, with two stories and over 1500 square feet of outdoor patio space to make them all the more enticing. In all, this is a residence of perfect harmony that both stands equal to its spectacular surroundings and allows for them to be a defining factor in its design. ■ | 19

an elevator that serve this amazing home, including one stairway that is referred to as “the spine of the home.” This was built by a ship builder from Wisconsin. A 30’ crane lowered the separate parts of this one of a kind illuminating spiral stairway. Included in this 11,000 plus square foot home are six fireplaces. It took four years to build and no expense was spared. The planned gated community that the residents love was designed to be diverse; including homes of 4,500 square feet, referred to as zero lot lines, even though some have pools, selling for over a Million dollars. There are also huge estates on large, (even acre lots) that are in the center of this beautiful community which are more like traditional neighborhoods; they back up to each other and side each other. 40 Braewood Place is expected to be the first sale of an “estate” property. These are comprised of homes that are on over an acre, very high end custom homes that back to the winding creek and overlook the nature preserve. In the estates there are two remaining vacant lots priced over $2 Million dollars each. Located in north Dallas, it is minutes from major freeways and shopping, yet it still has the feel of living in the Texas Hill Country – totally private. ■ | 25
