On March 31, the exclusive 2.5-acre Luahinewai oceanfront estate at Kiholo Bay on the Big Island of Hawaii, was listed and sold by Adam Atwood, R(S) of MacArthur Sotheby’s International Realty. Luahinewai is the Big Island’s highest-priced home sold this year – listed at $16M.
Atwood said, “Once I affiliated with Sotheby’s International Realty, the property sold within a month.” For over 25 years, MacArthur Sotheby’s International Realty has served the Big Island as a boutique luxury real estate company with a strong history of significant and record-breaking sales. The Sotheby’s International Realty network is the leader in luxury real estate sales in the nation and globally. The network has a marketing reach of approximately 825 affiliate offices throughout 61 countries with over 18,000 agents in a global referral program. Each office is independently owned and operated.
Luahinewai is an exclusive Hawaiian legacy estate and one of the most private and remote parcels along the Kona-Kohala coastline, never previously for sale in its current configuration. It is unique in that it is surrounded by over 4,300 acres of conservation-zoned parkland, Kiholo Bay Wilderness Park. The previous owners purchased the parcel in 1985, which was then only accessible by foot or boat. They built a deeded access road then constructed the 3,500 sqft, four-bedroom, four-bathroom home, designed by renowned architect Vladimir Ossipoff.
Situated just feet from the black sand beach, the eco-friendly estate is entirely off-grid and solar powered. It has views of the ocean, Maui, Mauna Kea and Kohala mountains, and contains a legendary half-acre pristine anchialine pond as part of the private parcel. Luahinewai is one of just four fee-simple parcels and seven homes on the entire four-mile stretch of Kiholo Bay oceanfront. Due to conservation zoning, this area will never see any further development or building.
“My affiliation with the wonderful MacArthur Sotheby’s International Realty team, Debi Au and Dodie MacArthur, greatly contributed to the successful close of this unique transaction,” Atwood said. “Kiholo Bay and Kiholo Bay Wilderness Park are rare jewels on the Kona Coast. The new owners understand that this is a one-of-a-kind property, surrounded in perpetuity by spectacular marine life and park land that will never be changed.”
