The property was originally owned by Princeville Ranch (AmFac) and was used for cattle grazing. Eventually the property was annexed off and purchased by the legendary Harry Weinberg Philanthropic Foundation. It was then developed and represented by Bill Dornbush of Dornbush & Co. Ltd and John C. Ferry, founder and president of Coldwell Banker Bali Hai Realty. The current owner purchased two lots that were part of this development: a 5 acre lot in 1999 and the second lot of 1.78 acres in 2000. They completed building their custom designed, one of a kind masterpiece in 2003.
Visionary architects Stephen Devery & Gary Tobey, with their unique ability to fuse together traditional Hawaiian elements into contemporary island design, conceptualized this home to be as low profile as possible. By creating the illusion of organically growing out of the building site, this home complements the land, giving off an indigenous feel that responds to the rugged irregularities of the dramatic bluff it is situated upon.
The intelligent use of seamless glass walls and oversized windows eliminate the limiting dimensions of enclosed space, maximizing the showcase of the living art that surrounds you.
Island serenity sways on the breeze throughout this sprawling 18,210 sf. (under roof), 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom and 3 half bath, 14- pod compound. Intentionally designed to break up the massing by binding smaller units together, occupants enjoy a sense of intimacy and privacy, while encouraging a flowing indoor-outdoor lifestyle.
Overseeing the construction of this estate was renowned builder Randy Weir, ensuring every aspect of the design vision was executed in exemplary fashion. All buildings were structurally engineered to handle the impressive aspects of its tropical location, while still maintaining the integrity of the land.
Talented landscape architect Marty Bryan took great care to honor the ancient Hawaiian’s strong connection to the land by demonstrating a landscape design that incorporates the organic properties of the site.
