Kohala Coast, Hawaii
AT A GLANCE
Kohala Coast, overlooking Honoka’ope Bay on the Big Island, is also referred to as the Gold Coast because it has sunshine all year round. The coast features stretches of beautiful white sand beaches and championship golf courses. There are plenty of recreational activities to do on the Big Island, including scuba diving, snorkeling, glass-bottom boat rides, windsurfing, fishing, horse riding, hiking and whale watching. Further in on the island you can visit active volcanoes, or take a hike and see ancient petroglyphs.
The integration of architecture, landscape and interior design gives 49 Black Sand Beach its unique indoor/outdoor living space. The home’s 8,987 square feet of living area plus 2,089 square feet of covered lanai is built on a cliff that overlooks the ocean.
This $24,000,000 home has a courtyard, and carved Indonesian temple entries frame the door and garden entrances. There is lush tropical landscaping and a variety of water features, including koi ponds. The pool and spa look out over the Pacific.
With its six full suites, the home accommodates many guests. The suite closest to the garage is self-sufficient with its own kitchen. The home’s media room, workout room with sauna and bathroom and office are all appointed with state-of-the-art equipment and technology. There are two outside covered sleeping areas, one oceanfront and the other in the garden.
This home is available fully furnished with interiors designed by Werner Design Associates. There is recessed lighting and custom glass fixtures, tumbled travertine floors and stone countertops. The clerestory window feature maximizes the light and views. This home has mahogany casework, trim and doors.
Throughout the home are art pieces by local Hawaiian artists. Large oil paintings by Darrell Hill and Tom Adolph and a Woodward Payne watercolor hang in the main living area. Framed silk batik paintings accent the walls throughout. One suite displays four rare antique painted Asian panels. There are also many glass sculptures, including a tall Italian glass lighting fixture illuminating the koi pond.
