Listing RemarksMain home custom house designed by artist-writer homeowner, originally as her writer’s retreat. Designed with future option for expansion. Thoughtful considerations included, natural air flow, reduction of condensation, even temperature, double-pane windows, double-wall construction, natural lighting, custom corbels, clear select lumber rafters, cedar siding.
Since owning and building the first “temporary” off-grid treehouse on this property in the late 70s, the owner has taken care to do the least amount of removal and destruction to native habitat on these 3-acres square. Rare and endemic plants found only in Hawai’i thrive here despite the invasive species that have been spread by birds, wind and other dispersal. So if you value nature’s natural wonders, this is a precious environment.
