Even as a kid I thoughtfully examined a wrapped present. While my brother tore into his gifts at Christmas like a hungry lion cub consuming meat and paper I played a game with my inner self. Studying the box and accents of the ribbon against brightly colored paper and then guessing its contents.
Not unlike a finely wrapped gift I played games wondering what lied behind the large stucco walls of this Kiahuna Golf Village home. Like a present its white walls are carefully landscaped to soften the effect and welcome the visitor to explore the treasure enclosed.
Situated on a 13,953 square feet lot that borders the Kiahuna golf course offers enough land beyond its stucco walls for an organic garden or a stand of tropical fruit trees.
The carefully planned 3,749 sf home has 4 bedrooms, 4 full baths and 2 half baths, designed by architect William Henry Bess and the homeowner who had years of experience viewing homes as a realtor.
Spacious high ceiling rooms compliment large windows that bring the private inner courtyard resplendent with its colorful tropical landscape into the occupants life. The deep blues of the large swimming pool enhance an oasis like feel to the home.
The home has been updated into the 21st century by the current owners. They have warmed the ground floor space with the organic look and feel of solid wood Acacia flooring. The calming Acacia hues play beautifully with the golden blond hues of the Rimu wood cabinetry.
Rimu is a coniferous tree native to New Zealand. A beautiful wood that is dear to the heart of the home’s builder, Richard Turner, a New Zealand native who owned Kiwi Construction.
The attention to detail is evident throughout the home. From the solid raised panel Rimu doors to the purposefully crafted walk in closets and food pantry this home was meant to be the original homeowners’ final space.
