This statement home built on over five acres was designed by renowned architect Craig Steely and is timelessly sophisticated and modern yet sustainable, juxtaposing the dense and rural Ohia forest with the Pacific Ocean below. Built into a rocky and hilly landscape, this light, cast-in-place-concrete and glass home with nine-foot floor-to ceiling windows takes advantage of breathtaking, endless views of this majestic location while preserving privacy. A saltwater lap pool and covered lanai make a smooth transition between the natural setting and the home. This home is environmentally sustainable, with a rainwater catchment system, passive cooling, heat-reflecting roof, and a solar water heater. Selective clearing of the site allowed for an orchard of over 100 heirloom coffee trees and a myriad of tropical fruit trees in the verdant gardens while preserving much of the natural Ohia forest. The home maximizes the natural light and calm of its location. The gourmet kitchen with luxury appliances and gleaming quartz-surface countertops is part of the open-plan living space. The master bedroom is accessed through an office space with vistas of the outdoors, a walk in closet and an ensuite that includes a private shower a floating double vanity and a soaking tub. The suite for guests is separated by the salt water solar heated lap pool it includes an additional two bedrooms, a private lanai and an outdoor shower. This must-see home is located in peaceful and graceful Opihikao, just four miles from bright-and-free spirited Pahoa Village with culture, shops, services and restaurants, and 45 minutes from Hilo International Airport. The home Lava Flow 7 has been featured in many architectural and lifestyle publications, including Dwell, Modern Luxury Hawaii, and This Modern House. Professional Photos to follow.
