Private Makena Estate Sold Fronting Secret Beach

One of a Kind Beachfront Luxury at 4690 Makena Road

Brought to market in late October of last year, 4690 Makena Road has experienced more activity than some of the other beachfront Makena estates of this caliber. On and off the market over the last few years, it can be expected a home of this price point and quality is only in the price range of a handful of buyers. Plus the monthly maintenance required of a beachfront home adds to the cost of the home.

Sitting on just under 1/2 an acre, the home is only 50 yards from one of Makena’s most private beaches because it takes a short hike to access the beach. So it is basically 300-400 yards of a private beach at the buyer’s disposal. The house itself is more modest than some of its neighbors with 2968 sqft of interior living, 3 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms. But the 1400 sqft of outdoor living area is really what this beachfront estate is about.

Sometimes when homes sit for awhile, they are taken temporarily off the market to give it a break which allows the home to show up as a “new listing” when it is put back on the market. That strategy worked like a charm and it only needed 3 weeks for this home to enter escrow and eventually close for a $9.25 million. 

Private location directly on “Secret Beach,” just 37 steps from white sand and swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, SUP and other fun ocean activities. Built in 1989, this “beach house” has three ocean view bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. Indoor and outdoor living spaces seamlessly open to expansive lanai’s for al fresco dining, whale watching, and soaking in sunset skies. Before a rejuvenating day at the beach, grab your tennis racket for some exercise and fun.
