About 7505 Makena Rd
7505 Makena Road is a masterfully designed Hawaiian estate located across from the ocean in Makena, South Maui. The 10,500 sq. ft., 8-bedroom, 8-bathroom, gated residence has been upgraded inside and out, with no expense spared. The estate includes a grand Main Home and a gorgeous Pool Cabana/Ohana. The property enjoys commanding ocean views. Taking in the estate from the ocean, the home fits gracefully into the gentle slope that leads up to the majestic crowning backdrop of Haleakala. The prestige carpentry that illuminates the interior calls to mind the richly crafted rooms of a Craftsman masterpiece and makes use of Koa, African mahogany, coconut, olive root, and cedar. Exposed beams, incredible built-in cabinetry, wood floors, ceilings, walls, doors, and custom furniture tie together the elevated Craftsman aesthetic. The entire ocean-facing side of the home is outfitted with folding glass doors that open to create a refined indoor-outdoor ocean-view living space. The Main Home is divided into north and south wings, which flank a great room on the ground level and a palatial master suite above. The Great Room features warm wood details, including a vaulted ceiling in the dining area with beams that are adorned with flourishes of Hawaiian floral motifs. Dedicated staircases leading to the guest suites on the second level are works of art, with exquisite built-in cabinets added underneath. Just off the Great Room is a large theater room with more extraordinary wood cabinetry. The luxurious main kitchen features custom cabinets, a Wolf stove, a stacked double oven, and a defining center island. Perfectly honed thick granite stone surfaces complement the warm wood tones. In the south wing, a massive "apartment" opens onto the entertainment veranda above the Pool Cabana. The wing features a richly appointed food-prep area, a spacious living room, and a large bedroom with an exquisitely beamed vaulted ceiling. A grand circular staircase gracefully coils around a two-story water feature in the Great Room and leads upstairs to the luxurious master suite. The suite is extraordinary in size, design, and amenities. You enter a spacious sitting area boasting built-in cabinetry, a vaulted beam ceiling, walls, and floors. In the bedroom itself, a raised wooden platform with built-in lighting and fan controls accommodates a king-size bed. The adjacent bathroom utilizes the same thick granite used in the kitchen, including a massive granite soaking tub. Amenities also include a steam bath, sauna, and dream walk-in closet. The entire master suite opens onto an expansive private lanai that runs the length of the space, ensuring breathtaking ocean views from all areas. The two guest suites on either end of the upper level also feature custom-crafted bed platforms and luxury bathrooms. Each opens onto its own private lanai overlooking the ocean! The Pool Cabana/Ohana is a fantastic entertainment and living space. With roughly 2,000 sq. ft., the Cabana features two bedrooms with ensuite baths, a full kitchen, and a living area that opens directly onto the pool lanai. The pool is perfectly proportioned and boasts a retractable movie screen and projection area for the ultimate movie nights. A brick pizza oven outside completes the entertainment options in the space. Recent interior upgrades include refinished floors, new carpets, regrouted bathrooms, tile flooring, reverse osmosis water systems in all kitchens, and ACs throughout. Outside updates include updated landscaping lighting, and new pool equipment, lights, and a heater. The home is being sold fully furnished, with custom furniture designed especially for the elegant wood interior. Photos do not do the warmth and richness of the interior and the grandeur of the setting of the estate justice. Beautiful by day or evening, sunset or morning light, this luxurious estate is an inviting home and the ultimate Maui retreat.
