North Kona, Island of Hawaii
Located on the greens of a private golf course, these custom residences in the Kukio Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii are set amid lava fields and natural ponds with expansive downslope ocean views. A walled and gated forecourt leads to a bridge over the entry water feature as well as provides an outdoor entertaining area. Large covered lanais off the living, dining, and master bedrooms provide outdoor living area with golf course and ocean views overlooking a natural-form pool and spa. A guest cottage off the entry forecourt provides private guest quarters with separate access.
The integration of natural wood siding, posts and beams with cedar shingle roofing creates a simple yet elegant contemporary version of classic plantation cottage architecture.
