203 Plantation Club Drive
A singularly exceptional property in Kapalua, 203 Plantation Club Drive, surpasses all others. The estate is a perfect combination of secluded privacy, inspiring 180-degree ocean, island and Kapalua shoreline views and an architecturally magnificent home.
This 6.82-acre graceful professional landscape creates a sensation of being right on the ocean, on a protected knoll securely sitting 100 feet above sea level—a haven of pleasurable, quiet coastal living and unparalleled vistas. This home is also a showplace for entertaining the most discerning guests—truly a superior example of a private legacy estate on the finest location in the entire community of Kapalua Plantation Estates. The property includes a long strip of land in front for extra privacy, which spans over 1,600 feet and extends all the way to the 12th hole of the Kapalua Plantation Golf course. This property is quietly nestled North of the main section of the Plantation Golf Course and far removed from the Clubhouse and activities of the community - a real advantage that allows you to enjoy all benefits of golf community living without any of the hassle and sound usually associated with living on a golf course.
Architecture & Design The two-story main house is a marvel of unrivaled architecture, craftsmanship and elegance with six full bedroom suites and 8,252 square feet of living area and an additional 3,806 square feet of lanai/deck space—all thoughtfully designed to achieve harmony of elements, a graceful continuity of space and easy living. The interior architecture and design finishes are a symphony for the senses, where every room tells a unique story in the languages of exotic woods, precious granite and many other treasured materials. The grand foyer opens to the living room, where artisan columns of Kapalua Blue Rock reach up to a high vaulted ceiling. Two-story high windows capture a sweeping ocean view perfectly designed to reflect Maui sunsets in the infinity pool. Smooth Travertine floors flow uninterrupted through living areas, master and family wings, and connect seamlessly with outdoor living spaces. The custom staircase is an elegantly crafted feat of engineering - a sturdy steel frame expertly sheathed in rich toned Mahogany and Koa. Custom cabinets and woodwork throughout this home were all sourced from a single log of premium Koa timber, milled and crafted by Eddie Takayesu of Maui Custom Woodworks.
This estate is truly a home where you can savor the joys of all-day outdoor living in Hawaii. In the morning you can greet the day with a sunrise swim in the spacious heated infinity pool while thrilling at the sight of humpback whales splashing in the ocean. In the afternoon, you can relax in cool comfort under the covered 1,113 square foot main lanai seating area. It stretches an uninterrupted 101 feet from the master suite all the way to the formal dining area. At sunset you can indulge in Maui cuisine in the outdoor dining room, entertained and rejuvenated by vibrant vistas as the sun dips past the horizon. At night you can soak in the hot tub, enveloped in the moonlight as you contemplate the stars.
The stately and lavish home entertainment theater has a large flat panel LED screen for casual watching plus a full projection system that descends from the ceiling on command for special occasions. The showpiece of the theater is the custom oval ceiling dome that was handcrafted by artisans in Kentucky using traditional plaster techniques and embellished with real silver leaf. The comfortable seating and relaxed ambiance of this home theater are enhanced by custom built lighting, automated light-blocking blinds and plush carpeting with an English needlepoint border.
This home is abundant with unique features that add convenience to everyday living and entertaining. At the touch of a button, motorized Phantom brand retractable screens deploy on the lanai areas to make it easy to enjoy the outdoors while keeping bugs and dust at bay. Custom-made pocket doors glide effortlessly and were designed with a careful eye to ensure that, when securely closed, they achieve balance and symmetry with the architecture. Flat panel televisions harmonize with the decor — hidden throughout the home behind VisionArt brand custom-framed fine art prints on motorized retracting canvas. At sundown, switch the whole home to evening lighting with one touch.
Smart Home system
A state-of-the-art smart home automation system, Control4, governs every facet of the property including security, lighting, entertainment and climate control. With Control4 you have the power to command any component of the system from any room in the house or even remotely via a special secure iOS app.
At the South end of the property is a spacious two-story carriage house. The first floor is an enclosed 989 sq.foot garage that can accommodate three cars and groundskeeping equipment. The second floor is a two bedroom, one bath caretaker's residence with 1,025 sq.feet of living space and an additional 110 sq.feet of covered lanai.
