The Orchid Waterfall House at Ōma'opio Ridge


This lot has been sold and is no longer available. It was offered at $2,750,000.

Architectural Inspiration:

The inspiration for this thoroughly modern home, reminiscent of ones designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, came directly from its site. The natural stone outcropping on which it is built is incorporated into a two-story atrium that features an indoor  waterfall. A swimming pool projects out into the gulch, and its "infinity edge" appears to blend into the landscape in the distance.


  • Main level: 2,827 sq. ft., plus 795 sq. ft of covered lanai and an uncovered deck of 197 sq. ft.
  • Lower level: 1,116 sq. ft., plus 1,514 sq. ft. of pool deck.
  • Three-car garage: 630 sq. ft.
  • The atrium, with its cascading waterfall, contains a total of 965 sq. ft.
  • In addition, there are two large storage rooms under the pool, one of which might be used as a wine cellar.
