On the lush Hawaiian island of Kauai, no fewer than six distinctive properties are coming up for auction this month. From luxury cottages in the sunny south to stunning properties in the mountainous north, check out our high-end real estate roundup.
Hale Lani, “Heavenly Home,” sits on a knoll in Kilauea, overlooking the ocean. The hideaway has just one bedroom and bath, but it’s filled with luxury appointments and is located on a 5-acre lot with room for two additional houses. Originally listed for $8.5m, the home offers a large stone lanai with spectacular views of the sea, lush valleys, and mountains, and a garden with outdoor shower, spa, and sitting area. Within the Asian-accented interior, there’s a gourmet kitchen and a marble-titled bath. The property will be auctioned on June 18th without reserve, meaning it will be sold to the highest bidder, regardless of price.
Also in Kilauea, and also being auctioned without reserve, there’s a 2-bedroom, 2- bath home on a 5.3-acre bluff overlooking the sea. Originally listed for $8.5m, it offers views to the north of Bali Hai. Custom cabinetry and honed limestone floors adorn the interior, and floor to ceiling sliding glass doors in the dining and sitting rooms afford views of the lush garden and the panorama beyond. A limestone lanai faces the ocean; a waterfall and lilypond provide a soothing soundtrack. As with the estate above, two additional houses may be built on the property.
Should you want to be right on the ocean, there’s yet another property in Kilauea that’s likely to capture your attention. It’s a 24-acre tract that offers 2/3rds of a mile on Secret Beach, with the potential to construct two luxury homes and one guesthouse. Eighteen of these acres are zoned for Conservation. Listed for $8.5m, the acreage is coming up for auction on June 18th.
There’s more: On the southern end of the island near Poipu, three luxury cottages are heading to auction, two of them without reserve. They’re located in Kukui’ula, in a thousand-acre beach and golf community. Newly built, Cottage 10 offers 3-bedrooms, 3.5 baths in over 3200sf of living space. Constructed in a Hawaiian plantation style, the retreat has beautiful water views, an outdoor kitchen, and an expansive screened-in lanai. Once listed at $2.25m, it will be auctioned on June 21st.
