Location: Kula, Maui, Hawaii
Combining the best of island life and midcentury modern architecture is this Eichler-esque home in Kula, an “upcountry” district in Maui, Hawaii. Built in 1975, the cedar-frame residence perches atop a hillside in the Kula Highlands neighborhood and frames dramatic ocean and mountain views from Wailea to the North Shore.
A pitched-roof entryway continues inside, where vaulted, wood-clad ceilings extend toward the back of the open-plan living room, where floor-to-ceiling glass offer incredible vistas of the landscape, while a retro freestanding fireplace keeps it cozy. Sliding glass doors open onto a small deck.
From there, a spacious corner kitchen with a breakfast bar and lounge with wood-burning stove follows, then a master bedroom suite with private balcony and bath, two additional bedrooms, and two baths round out the more-or-less original-looking house. Rounding out the property is a one-bedroom guest cottage with vaulted tongue-and-groove ceilings, large picture windows, and a tiny kitchen.
Measuring 1,656 square feet on just over half an acre and located at 171 Holomakani Place, the home is offered at $1.099 million. Take a look.
