Currently being offered via auction, this spectacular island residence offers a lavish lifestyle to those fortunate enough to pass through the gates.
Hawaii is well-known for incredible homes, but this one is in a category all its own. Known as Waterfalling Estate, it occupies 9.44 acres of very private, very prime Big Island real estate 18 miles from Hilo, where it’s dramatically perched on a bluff in the shadow of Mauna Kea, a dormant volcano, and overlooks the glimmering sea. The property’s theme is water in motion, which is quite apt, as, in addition to the expanse of Pacific Ocean, three streams cross the estate, and a 240-foot burbling waterfall is adjacent to the property, comfortably viewed from an observation deck.
Previously offered as a vacation rental, the property has every amenity required to keep guests of all ages happily occupied, either surfing, whale watching, perfecting their putting skills, playing tennis or basketball, taking nature hikes in nearby Hilo Forest Preserve and Akaka Falls State Park, or playing in a pool area that’s better equipped than some water parks.
The strikingly designed 7,422-square-foot, fully furnished three-story residence affords postcard-quality views from every one of the many windows in the common areas, as well as from the five bedrooms served by four full baths and two half-baths. Access to the three living levels and the rooftop gathering area is provided via a charming staircase and a centrally located, pneumatic air compression elevator with glass walls.
The interior is simple yet stylish, with hardwood ceilings and tile floors throughout. The main gathering area features a well-equipped chef’s kitchen with two island prep areas and bar seating in close, easy-to-serve proximity to the dining area.
The property also features a guest house that can also be used for staff quarters, a rooftop barbecue area, a nine-hole golf course, a tennis/basketball court with stadium seating for 450 spectators, an 82-foot-long lap pool, a 16-foot-deep diving pool, a two-story waterslide, hot tub, sauna, changing rooms, and a children’s pool. The list goes on to include a cavernous garage for multiple vehicles or equipment storage, and a helipad.
