A private lushly landscaped Shangri La at the top of Wailea Highlands, a most coveted gated Wailea community. One enters through custom, polished chrome & hand-cast wave-patterned glass doors framed in richly textured wood; a setting immediately both classic & contemporary. The tranquil entry allows a step into another world enhanced with custom koa wood bookcases, fronted by antique Chinese screens, & a gracious curved steel & limestone staircase. Designed by Hugh Farrington & built by Tae Murphy, this three-level residence affords commanding blue ocean & outer island views from virtually every area of the living, dining, & kitchen areas. This includes the luxurious 1700 s.f. top floor master sanctuary, covered lanai & elegant office with built-in circular koa wood desk. The home is an architectural delight; pomegranate-hued beams graphically frame recessed bird’s eye maple ceiling panels, mirroring the living areas below. Expansive glass walls retract on all three levels facilitating our tropical seamless indoor/outdoor Maui lifestyle. Ubatuba granite counters & a full-height backsplash complement the Anigre custom wood cabinetry & the Gaggeneau stainless appliances. A barrel-vaulted ceiling defines the gallery-like stairway to the ground-level family/media, powder room & two guest suites. Mature Areca palms surround the pool & spa helping to create total privacy. A prolific garden nurtures herbs, banana, papaya, mango, avocado, lemon, lime & orange trees. Truly a place of peace & beauty. World Class shopping, dining, spas, diving, hiking, tennis & golf privileges in the Wailea Resort.
