Offering spectacular 200 degree views of the ocean and a multi-island view, ‘Center of Paradise Retreat’ is ideally positioned on the western slope of the island of Maui. Its 2,000 foot elevation makes for perfect ‘never too hot or cold’ year-round temperatures. Hiking, cycling, and distance running adventures beckon right from the edge of the property with grasslands, trails, and a ridable, paved road surface running due south to the Ahihi-Kinau Natural Area Reserve and beyond. Located on Kula Hwy. just 3 miles from historic Keokea Village, the property’s unique character is frozen in time as the surrounding 11,051 acres of Ulupalakua Ranch Land are protected in perpetuity from development.
Situated on 2.5 acres of mature and meticulously landscaped orchards and gardens, the 2 bedroom and 2.5 bath main residence was completely renovated in 2008 with high-end fixtures and appliances, granite counters, natural hardwood appointments, exposed wood ceilings, and premium bamboo flooring. The airy and bright architecture takes full advantage of the majestic Maui location with an 800 sq. ft. wrap around deck for spacious windows to maximize enjoyment of the outstanding ocean views and sunsets.
A living room situated off the deck area features a fireplace and sliding door which completely recesses into the wall, creating a refreshing cross-breeze. Two vaulted-ceiling bedrooms with adjacent full bath with travertine walk-in shower offer the ultimate in casual island living with a bright, open floorplan and easy access to the manicured lawns and gardens outside. The office room (or den) boasts built-in bookshelves and fast and reliable high speed Internet available.
The sun-filled kitchen has been completely updated and provides easy serving access to the breakfast nook and indoor/outdoor deck bar-dining area, ideal for family relaxation and entertaining. Morning, noon and night comfort for outdoor dining and entertaining is assured with discreet overhead heating and ocean-facing views make for unparalleled sunset watching. The outdoor spa with translucent roof provides a meditative area complete with rain shower, soaking tub for two, and a lava fire pit, offering breathtaking and unobstructed views of the lush mountainside of Haleakala Crater.
This stunning property also features a guest room, a separate caretaker’s residence, a project shop, an enclosed garage, and an unfinished cellar.
