Mākena Beachfront Estate Sells for $15.5 Million
The first significant sale of 2017 was made this week when a luxury beachfront estate in Mākena sold for $15.5 million.
Island Sotheby’s International Realty agent Courtney Brown represented the buyers of the four-bedroom, seven-bath home in South Maui.
“We are so grateful to live in this astonishing place,” said M. Barrett, who bought the home. “The experience of working with Ms. Brown has been a privilege and a gift.”
The 5,400-square-foot home is surrounded by tropical gardens, with panoramic ocean views visible from every room in the house. The interior of the home is adorned with fine detailing including warm-colored woods and natural stone. The house also features expansive 10-foot high sliding glass doors that open to a lush interior courtyard.
The master suite boasts sweeping ocean views of south Maui with a massive bath and private courtyard with an exotic outdoor shower. There is also a climate-controlled, 800-plus bottle wine room that complements the exquisite gourmet kitchen.
Outside, lanai’s surround the estate, leading to a tiled pool, spa and cabana. An outdoor kitchen is equipped with an over-sized BBQ, under-counter refrigerator, sink and half bath.
From the pool area, stroll onto one of the finest black-sand beaches in South Maui, where guests can enjoy stand-up paddle boarding, snorkeling or a walk down the beach at sunset.
“It has been a dream for my husband and I to own a property in Maui,” said Barrett. “Courtney Brown found this magical home for us. Her vision, calm authority and intelligence made this a seamless process.”
