Gated estate set on a mountain top for ultimate privacy and security with sweeping views of the central isthmus and the north and south shorelines. This vantage point is unmatched by any other on Maui. Open spaces allow trade winds to circulate for a natural, healthy open-air environment, and the use of clerestory windows brings outside light into the home. Nishikawa Architects was influenced by the iconic work of C.W. Dickey, and this property was the winner of BIA Hawaii’s 2016 Grand Award for design excellence. The property embodies the aloha spirit of island lifestyle with maximum privacy. It offers a unique combination of proximity to the airport, hospital and shopping while preserving seclusion. Reached by a winding private road that arrives under the porte-cochere of the main entrance, the unique setting and landscaping of the site itself is reminiscent of a hilltop chateau or private island. The gardens include over 300 prized Koa and Koaia trees as well as 25 Ohia lehua which have commercial value and contribute towards preserving cultural traditions. A compelling aspect of this property is its permits. Lona Ridge is a coveted location for spectacular celebrations, TV sets, and corporate events. Contact your favorite Realtor for more details.
