A $15-Million Estate On Kauai’s North Shore Is The Largest For Sale

Listed for $15 million, the sprawling North Shore estate is the largest luxury home available on Kauai (HAWAII LIFE).

Go big or go home. This mansion on Kauai holds the distinction of being the largest luxury house for sale on the Hawaii island at more than 11,100 square feet.

But size isn’t the only ample attribute of the North Shore property.

Ocean views stretch from the town of Hanalei, with its crescent-shaped beach, to the landmark Kilauea Lighthouse.

There are three full kitchens.

A detached, temperature-controlled garage showroom can hold 22 vehicles – and that’s in addition to the four-car garage.

The personal residence of the late Pahio Resorts developer and philanthropist Dave Walters was designed with his family in mind. Set on 2.75 acres, the curvilinear home is approached through double gated entries and a circular drive.

The main residence opens to a living area influenced by the design of the Princeville Resort hotel. A curved wall of windows floods the space with light. Lanais overlook the ocean or take in mountain vistas.
