Description

Rare & Magical on Maui: A Bamboo Palace with ocean views, organic gardens - private, cool & quiet. Off the beaten path, this luxurious 2 Bed/3Bath Bamboo Sanctuary at 3,200 ft elevation in remote, eucalyptus-scented Olinda, made Green Building history as the first fully-permitted, Structural Bamboo construction on Maui. This extraordinary Balinese-inspired home was built in stages from 2004 to 2007 from 3 matching, pre-fabricated kits each handcrafted like fine furniture in Vietnam by Hawaiis Bamboo Living Homes, a pioneer in structural bamboo design for Western, code-compliant construction. Upcountry Mauis clear, crisp air flows through this open stretch of land that runs a quarter-mile, bordered by a 200 ft deep conservation-zoned ravine and Piiholo Rd. You first notice the expansive design of the home with its dramatic roofline, vaulted ceilings, and graceful arches, all surrounded by extra-wide covered lanais. The ceiling of the spacious 30 ft diameter, yurt-like, 12-sided Grand Room soars 15 feet up to a skylight at the center. The 2 intimate, 16 ft diameter, 8-sided bedrooms connect via large, enclosed breezeways, each is a special use area, perfect for entertaining. The layout has a place for an additional third matching bedroom kit that can be easily ordered and shipped from Vietnam. The exterior siding is split bamboo coated by Cetol for low maintenance. The same honey tones of the outside are brought inside by the use of cork flooring, exposed bamboo structural framing and woven bamboo ceiling and wall coverings. The kitchen has monkeypod countertops, koa cabinets and high-end appliances. A cast iron wood stove warms the house on chilly nights. The house is surrounded by 1200 sq.ft. of covered lanai. A 633 sq. ft. enclosed workshop could easily be converted into another bedroom. A comfortable six-person hot tub sits over the ravine affording a dramatic view to the ocean; perfect for a soak while watching night skies. Plenty of storage is provided by a 1063 sq. ft. graveled space under the house (7 clearance). The three bathrooms offer you the choice of an oversized shower stall, a cast-iron claw-foot tub, or a spectacular, hand-hammered copper claw-foot tub from Bali. There are separate spaces for a comfortable office, massage or workout room, walk in closets, and built-in shelves. A devoted organic gardener has made raised-bed boxes to make it easy for you to grow organic veggies. This house is a unique achievement of beautiful design, green materials and fine craftsmanship. Watch the video to grasp the lifestyle and schedule your tour today. Seller has preregistered their 5-acre, two-unit parcel as a Hawaii State Condominium and their Developers Public Report registration currently pending. Estimated completion of the public registration is 1 to 4 months. Until the registration is complete they cannot enter into any form of binding contract or accept any deposit or other payment. They can however enter into a non-binding agreement with an estimated purchase price that can be canceled by either party at any time. Once the condominium registration is complete this wonderful bamboo home on three acres will be the primary unit and, as such, there is no limit to the square footage of this house. The layout does have a convenient site to add a third matching bamboo bedroom kit that can be easily ordered and shipped from Vietnam. The secondary unit on two acres is restricted to 1000 sq ft and will be retained by the seller as their primary home for them to downsize into. Because this is an AG land, both units may have additional freestanding, non-residential AG structures built to be used as barns, greenhouses or storage. If these structure are under 1000 sq ft they may even be exempt from local permits and building codes. So there is a lot of flexibility to what can be done here if you need additional space.
