The Most Exclusive Coastal Homes of 2018

This year’s list of our Top 20 most exclusive coastal homes on the American market features more pools, docks, multi-car garages, guest houses, gate houses, and private beaches than ever before.

145 Kailuana, Beachside, Kailua, Hawaii

Designed by noted Hawaii architect James McPeak, this estate includes 14,834 sq. ft. of indoor space: two main residences and staff quarters, with ten bedrooms, eight full baths, and three half baths. Rich tropical hardwood accents and textured finishes to the vaulted ceilings give a warm opulence; living space flow seamlessly between indoors and outdoors for cool breezes and maximum ease – the epitome of sophisticated island living. Says McPeak, “The home has an openness and transparency about it. You can see through to the pool and then to the ocean. You’re constantly bringing the outdoors in.” Coral, lava rock, and other materials harvested locally were utilized to harmonize with the natural setting, deepening the sense of place. The two fully appointed kitchens feature premium Subzero, Dacor and Dosch appliance, and the media room is equipped with a Sony projection and theater system. Stepping outside, you’ll enjoy the expansive back lawn with its private access to the aquamarine waters of world-famous Kailua beach.
