Haiku Beauty: 60 Ko’olau Road

FullSizeRender

Our clients happy to see their home sell

60 Ko’olau Road is the definition of a Haiku estate: lush tropical flora, upgraded home with plantation style touches, soothing water feature, sprawling yard space, and accessory dwelling; this home has it all! It is located a few minutes from 5 corners (local Haiku landmark) with easy access to Hana Highway and is also just 10 minutes to Jaws also known as Pe’ahi.

We listed the property at $1,295,000 and held the price firm throughout its entire time on the market. We felt it fell nicely into the $1.3 million Haiku inventory and priced it competitively at the time. What set 60 Koolau apart from the pack was its impeccable construction, quality building materials, and enchanting grounds. At $411 per square foot, 60 Koolau was a very competitive deal in the market.

We got the property into escrow on the last day of May, and after a 2 month escrow we closed the property for $1,215,000. Our seller clients were happy to move on from the property after it served them so wonderfully throughout their time spent there.

pic_589373.650The sound of a trickling waterfall over a pool of water lilies greets you at the entrance to this Haiku oasis. The chef’s kitchen offers enough space to whip up exotic culinary creations while still enjoying the company of friends and family. The master suite is on the opposite end of the home making it the perfect retreat at the end of the day. The main home has the welcoming flow of single level living with a special attention to features for entertaining. An easy walk up the stone path takes you to the tiki hot tub hale and separate structure currently used as a gym, brewery and workshop. This property is a pleasure to show and must be experienced.

The detail and care that has gone into the property at 60 Koolau transends the camera lens. It must be experienced to be appreciated. The single level floor plan is an entertainers delight with covered lanai, chef’s kitchen and covered outdoor BBQ/smoker. The covered lanai makes the perfect area for eating fresh star fruit or hanging banana’s right outside the door. The property has an unbelievable amount of beautiful flora, like beautiful and deep colorful hibiscus.
