Following four other successful Kuki’o auctions in the past two years, Concierge Auctions will be back at the ultra-exclusive Kuki’o Golf and Beach Club May 24 to sell a 9,277-square-foot residence in cooperation with Kuki’o Properties. Kuki’o, a private oceanfront club and residential community developed by Discovery Land Company, is adjacent to the highly acclaimed Four Seasons Hualalai Resort and features some of the most expensive real estate in Hawaii.
Since its inception, Kukio attracted numerous well-known member residents such as computer mogul Michael Dell and former Yahoo CEO Carol Ann Bartz. The upcoming sale of the 9,277-square-foot, furnished estate was originally listed for $9.75 million. Bidding will begin at $3.995 million, or the property can be purchased prior to auction for a Buy-It-Now price of $8.195 million.
“Every detail of this home celebrates its location, facilitating outdoor living and the relaxed, informal lifestyle the Islands are known for,” said Carrie Nicholson, Principal Broker at Kuki’o Properties. “Everywhere you turn, there is an effortless transition between the interior and exterior living spaces.”Real estate is all about location, and it doesn’t get any better than Kuki’o. We’re pleased to work with the Concierge team again and look forward to what will be our fifth successful sale together and to introducing a new owner to the community.”
Todd Moen of The Moen Group, a personal representative of the seller, understands the seller’s motivations and believes the Concierge Auctions process is a great fit. “I became familiar with Concierge over a year ago and have watched their skill at matching buyers and sellers of some of the most sought-after properties in the nation,” Moen said. “The Concierge team will only consider assignments where the owner is committed to accepting the market value as identified by the bidders on auction day, and as a result buyers and agents trust that their inventory presents the best opportunities. No doubt this is one of them.”
Lot 57, also known as 72-119 Kahawaliwali Place, is a prime site on Kuki’o’s 10-hole Tom Fazio-designed golf course. Located on a 29,359-square-foot lot, its exterior features include a stucco finish with Cedar shake roof and Honduran mahogany detailing. There is an outdoor dining area with a BBQ, a wet bar, an infinity-edge swimming pool and spa and an outdoor shower. Indoors, the stunning master suite features Tigerwood flooring, a mahogany ceiling and its own covered lanai. Additionally there are four guest suites – all with private entrances – five bathrooms, a powder room, a gourmet kitchen and plenty of expansive spaces for entertaining.
“Our success record in Kuki’o is 100 percent, as we have sold every property we’ve represented in the community,” said Laura Brady, Vice President of Marketing for Concierge Auctions. “It’s no wonder why. Envisioned by the prestigious Discovery Land Company, whose roster also includes The Estancia Club in Scottsdale, Arizona; El Dorado in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; and Iron Horse in Whitefish, Montana, among many others, Kuki’o is without question one of the most private and refined oceanfront clubs in the world. Those who purchase here are not only buying exquisite real estate but also an unparalleled lifestyle. The opportunity to name the price at auction only sweetens the deal.”
