Hale Ilima, An Exotic Hawaiian Property

Hale Ilima is named for the native Hawaiian ilima blossoms that abound on this one acre beautifully landscaped property.  Like the Ilima lei, woven with hundreds of flowers and once reserved for Hawaiian royalty, this property has hundreds of meticulous details woven together to create a stunning retreat.  The current owners have created a fusion of Hawaiian tropical style with exotic accents from travels to Bali, Thailand, India, Morocco and Japan.  Perched on an historic breeze-caressed hilltop, the existing two-bedroom home was originally built in 1958 and completely redesigned in 1980 by prominent Oahu architect Doug Ackerman.  Ackerman added a vaulted 30 foot living room ceiling, Koa wood bar countertops, a 400 sqft wrap-around lanai, rare Ohia posts to a breezeway connecting the main living area to the second bedroom, half bath and outdoor shower.  The current owners have spent two years renovating and adding to Ackerman’s vision.  They have created an enclosed courtyard through a Balinese entry gate, installed Ipe decking, added granite countertops in the kitchen and all new stainless steel appliances.  The newly renovated main bath includes a Toto Washlet commode, a teak sink with custom made Saguaro cactus faucet, incredible pebble stone flooring, a walk-in shower and a copper tub surrounded by an orchid filled rock wall with outdoor elements.  The abundant windows throughout house bring the trade winds and lush Hawaiian gardens indoors.  The property and grounds rest on a series of four levels of terraces linked by historic restored lava rock walls hosting gardens of fragrant ginger, gardenia, pikake, night blooming jasmine and plumeria. Stroll through the gardens and fill your fruit bowl with abundant bananas, papayas, avocados, coconuts, mangoes and ulu. The rare zoning allows for the addition of multiple homes.  One owner is also the listing Realtor.
