Tucked away on a private road on Kauai's south side is a hidden gem of a home on 2.6 acres of land. Designed by noted Big Island architect, the late Boone Morrison, and constructed by Kauai-builder Bob Mikkelsen, the home combines an overall feeling of Hawaiiana with the clean lines of mid-century modern design—truly a one-of-a-kind. Boone employed a practice of designing large, usable rooms, lighted by massive windows on several sides, with soaring ceilings and gleaming hardwood floors. This over 3,000 sf home is a wonderful example of his work.
Slate floors greet you at the entrance of the home and into the kitchen and baths. Custom woodwork, including the remaining flooring, lanai, custom trim work and beams, is featured throughout the home, all from locally-sourced hardwoods. The home was constructed in two phases, with the entry, kitchen, large dining room, primary suite and additional bath on one side, and the grand living room and loft/office on the other. The two structures are connected via a 1000 sf covered lanai, adding an abundance of usable outdoor living space to the overall footprint of the home. The total combined square footage under roof is 4355. Guest house rights are included with the property.
The current owners have transformed the land into a botanical garden with one of the most extensive collections of rare palms and cycads in the Hawaiian Islands. The property features an extensive network of paved pathways interconnected with trails which lead to a stream and waterfall below the property, and panoramic views of the surrounding areas from the ridge line above the home.
* The adjacent 1.68 acre parcel with two-car garage, workshop and house rights can be purchased with this property FOR $2.8 M (TMK: 4-2-5-2-15-4).
