Kapalua Resort is a luxury development in Maui that spreads across 22,000-acres, featuring a variety of golf courses, restaurants, marine life preserves, wildlife sanctuaries, and of course, gorgeous homes. Within this development rests Kapalua Place, an incredibly secluded and gated enclave that has only eight estates. The good news? One of these estates, 8 Kapalua Place, is going to be auctioned without reserve on December 17 by New York-based Concierge Auctions (in partnership with Island Sotheby's International Realty).
With views of both the West Maui Mountains and the sandy beaches of Oneloa Bay (which it has direct access to), the residence was originally on the market for $13.5M. Surrounded by rock accent walls, a waterfall and tranquility pool, the 10,239-square-foot home has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. The master and guest bedrooms are found on the second floor, with the first floor featuring a family room and wine bar with an open floor plan — a private elevator connecting them. There's also a children's wing with two bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as a separate laundry room.
Filled with designer furnishings and a neutral color palette, the estate gives residents unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean through floor-to-ceiling windows. The kitchen was designed to be a place of gathering, with long wrap-around Blue Macuba granite countertops and luxury appliances (including dual Sub Zero refrigerators and a Gaggenau gas cook top with a steamer).
"The Kapalua Resort is world class and offers a tremendous lifestyle. With incredible, natural beauty everywhere, miles of hiking and coastal trails, and several beaches named America's best, the community is truly Hawaii living at its finest," says Rob Shelton of Island Sotheby's International Realty. "This is my first time working with Concierge Auctions, and I am looking forward to this partnership with the firm. Their team has proven to be very professional and results-driven, and I am confident we will reach a positive outcome on auction day."
The property will be open for preview from 1-4 p.m. daily and by appointment.
