Listing Remarks

Meander down the winding paved driveway through rolling pasture and up a small rise to discover Wehelani, "where the heavens open," an Ossipoff -designed gem of a cottage. It features the architect’s signature boulder concrete and Asian design influences, as well as redwood and cedar construction throughout and a corrugated aluminum roof. Upstairs is the studio with a dramatic over-sized window in the living room 9'5" tall and 7'4" wide, which showcases the rolling pastures, the ocean, and the ever-changing sky. Bask in the warmth from the wood stove on cool evenings, soak in the deep Japanese furo, cook in the kitchen equipped with stainless steel appliances and open redwood shelving, and unwind in the cozy bedroom.
Downstairs is a slate-tiled carport used as a lanai, ideal for barbecuing, dining alfresco, and enjoying views of pasture and ocean. The adjoining recreation room has engineered koa floors and a kitchenette with a bar sink, slate counter and refrigerator. The washer and dryer are hidden behind sliding wood panels. A separate bonus room at ground level has an electric fireplace, ½ bath and raised sleeping platform. An outdoor shower and a secluded lanai facing the ocean are accessed by a paved concrete walkway and stepping stones. Meticulously and artfully planned, the property features mature macadamia nut trees, shade-grown coffee and carefully chosen fruit and ornamental plants, including the island’s best Meyer lemons, mountain apples, Kaffir lime, avocados and gardenias. Take in the fragrance of gardenias and macadamia nut and citrus tree blossoms during the blooming season. The plants and trees thrive at 1600-1700 ft. above sea level. Keep horses, cattle, sheep or goats in the cross-fenced paddocks. Enjoy stargazing at this location; there's no light pollution! Take walks or ride your bike along the country roads and enjoy beautiful views at every turn. Take a short drive to charming historic Honoka'a town with its amenities.
