A Once-in-a-Lifetime Opportunity: MacArthur Sotheby’s International Realty Sells Exclusive Kiholo Bay Estate – Listed at $16M

Luahinewai

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.”

The Hawaii Affiliates of Sotheby’s International Realty Charitable Fund Celebrate the “Art of Giving”

Art of Giving

Nearly 200 Sotheby’s International Realty agents, staff, clients, and invited guests from four islands, including the Big Island’s MacArthur Sotherby’s International Realty, congregated at the Honolulu Museum of Art for their first annual gathering, an event showcasing the importance of being a close-knit community and the launch of their new fund.

Along with the Big Island group, representatives from Maui’s Island Sotheby’s International Realty were present, along with Oahu’s LIST Sotheby’s International Realty and Kauai’s Sleeping Giant Sotheby’s International Realty.

The event celebrated the “Art of Giving” and the support fund, which provides support to local programs and nonprofit organizations who have their focus on conservation of the natural environment, nurturing education and preservation of Hawai’i’s unique culture.

“Investment in these three key areas will help make for a better quality of life for Hawai’i residents and strengthen our communities, which is extremely important to us all,” said Dodie MacArthur, CEO and founder of MacArthur Sotheby’s International Realty. “The Hawai’i Community Foundation’s goals are our goals.”

The newly launched fund is a philanthropic endeavor that was created through combined efforts with the four island affiliates of Sotheby’s International Realty.

“Because the Hawai’i Affiliates of Sotheby’s International Realty operate in communities across the state, the kick-off event allowed our participants to come together to recognize donations made to date and gain more inspiration as we work toward greater support of our community,” said Paul MacLaughlin, Island Sotheby’s International Realty principal broker and owner.

Various speakers took the stage to discuss the “Art of Giving,” including Tom Kelly, Hawai’i Community Foundation vice president; Matthew Bauer, Chief Operating Officer of KUPU; and Paul Jackson, a grant recipient, as well as Lemonade Alley founder Steve Sue, who spoke about how giving has shaped his own life, personally and professionally.

Attendees enjoyed the ongoing exhibit “Auguste Rodin: The Human Experience,” sponsored by LIST Sotheby’s International Realty, and Rodin-inspired “living statues” from the Iona Contemporary Dance Theater. The evening also featured the culinary creations of Chef Russell Siu of 3660 On the Rise, a spectacular sushi bar by Yatai Sushi and entertainment by Mango Season.
