Add a Touch of Carol Ann

Screen Shot 2017-06-02 at 2.17.19 PM

As an interior designer and realtor, I’m in the business of trend-setting and finding hidden gems. You spend 35+ years dedicated to the profession of interior design and eventually you develop the “eye” for the timeless design elements hidden among the fads that come and go. Whether you are remodeling or looking to buy, I always welcome any opportunity to consult or advise on the best and brightest ideas, trends and items in the modern world of interior design.

Adding a touch of Carol Ann means trusting me to create beautiful and unique spaces. Whether you need a designer, realtor, or just a friend to bounce ideas off of, it brings me great energy to be able to bring my ideas to your front door. They say imitation is the finest form of flattery and for a designer, you better believe that holds true.

Today, I’m bringing you some of the sights I was treated to at a closed networking event at Ferguson Kitchen and Lighting Gallery Showroom, in Honolulu. The Ferguson Kitchen and Lighting Expo is one of my favorite annual events. They rolled out the red carpet and treated us to an evening of cocktails and pupus. Yum!   Continue reading

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.”
