The designer for the development is Hawaii-born Hunton Conrad. After studying the unique aspects of each lot, Hunton has consulted on the location of each home site, and has designed the first three houses. Hunton began his career as a landscape architect, later adding interior design and architecture to his arsenal of talents. He has won praise for his innovative work on such projects as the Coconut Plaza Hotel in Honolulu, the Hotel Hana-Maui, and numerous private estates throughout the islands. If buyers so desire, this gifted designer will work with them to implement changes to an existing design or to create a custom plan of their own.
We walked through the two finished homes, both of which have been purchased. The "Hawaiana Hale" was inspired by the designs of C.W.Dickey, a well-known architect of the early 1900’s here in Hawaii. You can see this era reflected in the two-foot thick plaster interior walls, the stained concrete floors, and the stone water fountain in the courtyard. The magnificent view takes center stage here, making itself known through expansive windows and doors opening out onto covered and columned stone-floored lanais.
As we drive up the road to the "Moon Gate" house, we hear the busy-bee sounds of craftsmen at work. This rambling Chinese-influenced villa is graced by a moon gate entrance, a large library, a master bath shower that projects into the outdoor walled garden, and a blue tiled infinity-edged pool that is out of this world. The house is built so that its angles capture the fabulous view from Ma‘alaea Bay to the north shore. Ancient petroglyphs have been found somewhere on the property. There is something magical about this spot, something the new owners also apparently felt. They purchased the house before it was halfway completed and added their own vision to the design. The result is a true masterpiece.
Finally we head toward the site of the future "Orchid Waterfall House," reminiscent of designs by the legendary Frank Lloyd Wright. I stand at the edge of a deep gulch filled with rounded black stones from Pele’s jewel box and the green of trees and plants native to this place. I can see the future walls of a two story atrium with its indoor orchid waterfall rising up from rugged stone outcroppings. There will be an indoor-outdoor pond, and an infinity pool projecting out over the gulch. Artfully designed stairs as well as an elevator will provide easy access between the first floor with its covered lanais and the lower level with its pool deck. This dream of a home is destined to embody that unique combination of modernity and timelessness. . . .
All this peace and quiet and beauty, just waiting for those who dare to dream. Take the drive to Ōma'opio Ridge. Talk to Wendy R. Peterson. Work with Hunton to create your very own piece of Shangri-La.
