As you ascend the palm-lined drive, dappled in brilliant colors of blooming bromeliads, mature plumeria trees and a multitude of flowering heliconia and ginger, its evident why this dignified plantation style, kama'aina home was the historic escape for some of Hawaii’s most prominent and celebrated families.
Originally constructed in 1946 by the Dillinghams of Honolulu and aptly named “Hale Pumehana” for its warmth and hospitality, the property has been featured in Maui guidebooks as well as the New York Times.
Located in the Koali district, just outside Hana town on the border of Kipahulu, the property offers spectacular views of the Alenuihaha Channel and the Big Island as well as unimpeded vistas of the Maui coastline and Volcanoes National Park at Ohe'o.
The home has an open living room with fireplace, a bright master bedroom with walk-in closet and several covered lanai. It’s an excellent place to cuddle up with a good book or entertain guests, like the notable musicians who have performed here in past days.
Peaceful lawns and luxuriant gardens surround the home’s versatile layout which can be used as four bedrooms in two buildings interconnected by a covered breezeway, or a two bedroom main residence with a separate guest cottage. A favored feature is the whimsical glass shower with private garden entrance.
The current owner, an internationally acclaimed clay artist, added a spacious concrete art studio and gallery, designed to support a second story.
Additional features include a one car, oversized garage with built-in wine storage, a leased photovoltaic solar system which compliments the 200 amp underground electrical system, a large storage building, 120 gallon propane tank and more.
The original building was a simple brick cook house with a board and baton bunk house nearby. Today, through careful modernizing, the property has become a warm and inviting family estate.
