As you ascend the palm-lined drive, its evident why this dignified plantation style, kama'aina home was the historic escape for some of Hawaii’s most prominent families. Originally constructed in 1946 by the Dillinghams of Honolulu and aptly named “Hale Pumehana” for its warmth and hospitality, the property has been featured in Maui guidebooks and the New York Times. Located in the Koali district, just outside Hana town, the property offers spectacular views of the Big Island as well as unimpeded vistas of the Maui coastline and Volcanoes National Park at Ohe'o towards Kipahulu. The home has an open living room with fireplace, a bright master bedroom with walk-in closet and several covered lanai. It’s an excellent place to entertain guests or just cuddle up with a good book. Peaceful lawns and luxuriant gardens surround the home’s versatile layout which can be used as four bedrooms in two buildings interconnected by a covered breezeway, or a two bedroom main residence with a separate guest cottage. A favored feature is the whimsical glass shower with private garden entrance. The current owner, an internationally acclaimed clay artist, added a spacious concrete art studio and gallery, designed to support a second story. Additional features include a one car, oversized garage with built-in wine storage, a leased photovoltaic system, a large storage building, 120 gallon propane tank and more. Check out the 3D tour.
