HONOKAA, Hawaii, 96727, United States
Majestic, timeless, impeccable, and impossible to replicate at the current list price, architecture at its finest and of rare construction quality. Built to last 100’s of years. These photos with virtual staging and renderings give a modern vision to a one of kind property in Hawaii sited on 105.6 ac. on the Hamakua Coast of the Big Island. Endless possibilities to dream about: A future tea or coffee farm, an exotic sandalwood forest, equestrian estate, boutique bed and breakfast, culinary school, farm to table private dining, wedding, and unique events venue, corporate, health or spiritual retreat. Sequestered in complete privacy, a gathering place, and a haven to explore the exquisite coastline and the most productive farmland on the island. Built in 2010 as a love affair with Italy, Villa Paolina costs approximately $6 million to build and has recently undergone a two-year meticulous restoration, renovation project. The villa itself is a monumental feat of construction and a home of rare and great beauty: 4,527 square feet of living area consisting of four suites, a hotel-sized kitchen with a butler’s pantry and 2,240 sqft. of partially covered lanai of marble for a total of 6,764 sqft. under roof. The structure is composed of reinforced concrete columns attached to the slab at the base and then reinforced square concrete beams at the top which connect all the columns. The columns, beams and arches of concrete are all 16”x16” deep and were poured in place. The roof trusses are galvanized steel covered by a richly colored terracotta tile in stark contrast to the off-white hand-applied plaster of the exterior 8” concrete walls. 180-degree coastline views, majestic Mauna Kea and across the channel to Maui and the tip of Haleakala. This northern coastline of Hamakua sits below the expansive slopes of Mauna Kea in an area known for sunny weather and moderate rainfall referred to as the ‘banana belt’ an absolute must see to appreciate the beauty and rarity.
