An extensive four-bedroom property offering 6,653 square feet of living area sold for $9.75 million late last year, listing broker Harold Clarke of Luxury Big Island confirmed.

Among stunning ocean and sunset views, the estate is located in the intimate Hualalai Resort in North Kona, offering 38,659 square feet of exclusive property.

Developed in 2011, this home was an exquisite listing that “no one seeking a taste of paradise will pass up on,” recalls Clarke. With all of the homes designed differently, the listing offered a unique luxury for its new owners.

The home showcases ocean, coastline and sunset views through custom windows and wall openings. Amenities include a gourmet kitchen with pantry, formal dining room that seats 16 persons, a separate butler’s pantry and formal bar, a wine room, and an ample outdoor barbecue/cooking area on a fully landscaped plot.

The land is located near five-star resort amenities on Hawaii’s Big Island, like the Four Seasons Hualalai. In just a few steps, its residents can find themselves in the world-class Nicklaus and Weiskopf golf courses.

“It’s not just the cathedral ceiling or well-conceived and crafted features that drew them in,” says Clarke of the new property owners. “It’s the unparalleled combination of these man-made persuasions and what the Big Island offers on its own that keeps the ultra-rich looking: rich sunsets, the ocean-kissed horizon, the works.”

Apart from multiple dining venues indoors and out, the property features a media room, a heavenly solar or gas-heated infinity-edge pool, lighted sport court, and exterior lighting and sound system. An indoor and outdoor sprinkler system, smoke/heat detector, and security guard and patrol are also included.

This property emphasizes the importance of both the land and its surroundings. It’s not always the oceanfront view or the massive house that wins — it’s the seamless mix of both that helps island listings profit.
