The first time we came upon this property, the infamous Surf Break, 'Freight Trains', in Maalaea Bay, was firing! Our mouths dropped as these elegant ‘rights’ repeatedly unfolded just a short paddle out! Once we got over our excitement we realized that we were on this private, pristine, pastoral, .84 acres of Oceanfront Paradise! Passing through the motorized gate an expansive lawn unfolds & you immediately feel ‘the quiet & peace’ afforded by the mature lush surroundings & the beckoning call of the waves. Plantation Elegance best describes this classic 1942 ‘retreat’ which was lovingly renovated in 2011. Slightly distressed natural wood floors contrast with the whitewashed open beam vaulted ceilings creating a ‘chic laid-back’ elegance! Disappearing, expansive walls of glass, on both sides of the home roll back & you experience that seamless indoor/outdoor Maui lifestyle! The all white & stainless steel kitchen is warmed by the rich grain of the Monkey Pod wood center island! Both bedroom & bath suites are at opposite ends & open out onto the oceanfront covered wooden deck that runs the length of the home. Designer touches include Carrera Marble & Glass tiled shower walls, custom natural wood & sculptural burl vanities, & a split system A/C. Facing south this home avoids that afternoon glare & excessive heat gain.There is a roof-top viewing lanai for whale-watching & stargazing! A detached guest cottage & its adjacent, in-deck spa, are respectfully situated away from the residence. Maalaea is conveniently located not far from Kahului Airport & the Central Maui Business District. A Must See & Experience!
