Location: Pahoa, Hawaii
Looks like we left something out in our recent roundup of the dreamiest homes currently for sale in Hawaii. Like another stunning modern home nearby—designed by the same architect, Craig Steely, and just sold last month—this 3,725-square-foot house sits on a lava field, giving the residence its name Pohakunani, "The Beautiful Rocks."
Requisite to all first-class Hawaii homes is an expansive lanai, and this home checks that off alright, offering 800 square feet of porches wrapping around the main house, a 2,800-square-foot dwelling containing two living rooms, two bedrooms, a formal dining room, office, and chef’s kitchen with red oak cabinetry and granite counters. Throughout the home, there’s a constant balance of the hard and soft, observed in the concrete terrazzo and bamboo floors, mango-plank floating stairs, as well as the lush exterior landscaping and cut-lava terrace by the pool.
The second part of the property is a more secluded 820-square-foot studio guest quarters, connected to the main house via a covered walkway. Both dwellings have been successful vacation rentals on Airbnb in recent years.
