Located between Nounou (Sleeping Giant) Mountain and the ridges of Makaleha are the plateaus and rolling hills of farms and pastures in the Homesteads and Kapahi. This lesser known upland area, except to in-the-know locals, hikers, and tourists seeking unique experiences, is this first-time listed, manicured non-CPRd acre with two homes perched above the Seller's lovingly-created botanical garden with a rare Pink Bombax, huge Blue Bismarck Palm and Acai Tree amid sculpted lawn, terraces, and various other palms and fruit trees. Two homes, architecturally-designed by Ross Chapin and custom-built in 2010 by Moomaw Construction, are partially shielded by a roadside bamboo hedge and partitioned by a wide, high stand of Black Bamboo. The Beige 1,835 sf home has an L-shaped lanai, 3 entries, and overlooks the garden. Exotic hardwood floors are throughout except in "splash" areas with Italian tile. The common area is a living room, kitchen, built-in dining nook, and stairs with a hall to a bedroom, bath and porch. The second floor offers 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a laundry wall. The home's heart is the soffit-ceilinged gourmet kitchen with gleaming Kilimanjaro granite counters and custom cabinetry crafted from seller-collected exotic hardwoods. The 1,398 sf Red home's entry lanai overlooks its red-stalked Sealing Wax Lipstick Palm-lined path into the garden. A built-in bench dining nook, kitchen with black granite counter atop crisp white cabinetry, and living room face the hall to a wall laundry, custom full bath, and 2 corner bedrooms. The upstairs suite is a bath, office niche, and bedroom with a French balcony and peek of the ocean. Beaches, the bike path and Kapaa are a 10 minute drive. South to Lihue, within 25 minutes, is the Wailua County Golf Course, airport, harbor, hospital, museum, university, government offices, and shopping. The Far North Shore's Hanalei Town, exquisite beaches and surf, and storied Hawaiian cultural presence are a 45 minutes drive.
