CAPTAIN COOK HI, 96704

Description

Welcome to Hale Paliuli! This one of a kind home was thoughtfully and lovingly built by its current and original owner. The name, based on a definition of paradise called Paliuli in Hawaiian mythology is the equivalent of the Garden of Eden or "legendary place of happiness and plenty" The literal meaning of Paliuli is "green cliffs" that frame Kealakekua Bay to the North. The spectacular Western view is full of ocean and evening sunsets giving way to starry nights all perfectly enjoyed from the very ample wrap around lanai.
The home located at the top of Kona Paradise has 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a room currently used as an office, a massive art studio area and loft. The feeling of openness and one with nature gives way as outside walls are mostly glass to exploit the views bringing the wonder that is Hawaii indoors as well. The hallway from the entry door to the ocean-most area is a gallery punctuated with accents and features to make the jaunt interesting and not rushed through by guests.
Pocket doors in the interior lend a more open feeling with no visible confining barriers. The owners travels to Japan are memorialized by a tea house/Wright inspired architecture and minimalist furnishings.
As Frank Lloyd Wright so often espoused its what a house is of, not just what it sits upon. The conceptualization of Hale Paliuli began on visits to the Big Island where the island breezes with the scent of flowers embraced one as they do at this beautiful property. Recurring Big Island respites at a B&B with outdoor showers added that "must" to the building list and this home boasts two, one includes a soaking tub feature. Other musts included an extensive art studio space and a loft space for languishing in a life-long love of miniature trains all these things shaped Hale Paliuli, over four levels with all available cubic space fully utilized. This home will surely be as treasured by its next fortunate owner as it is by by its current one.
