Mauna Kea Celebrity Home sells for $11.5 Million!

The recent sale of Hale Kiekiena, a luxury home with celebrity ties in Mauna Kea Resort, is the biggest Big Island real estate transaction so far this year.  Designed by Kona-based architect Hamlet Charles Bennett, the 6,300 square-foot home was built and designed for Emmy-award winning TV producer Stephen Bochco, whose shows include “L.A. Law,” “NYPD Blue,” “Doogie Howser M.D.” and “Hill Street Blues,” to name a few. Featuring six bedrooms and 6.5 baths, the casually elegant home was designed as a series of pavilions with each room a different structure spread across the nearly 2-acre ocean view property. Blending the best of Hawaiian, Balinese and Chinese design, the luxurious estate was thoughtfully planned to take maximum advantage of indoor-outdoor living that homebuyers are looking for in luxury Big Island properties. The indoor living spaces blend seamlessly with more than 2,000 square feet of outdoor spaces including a covered lānai, infinity edge pool, gazebos and a dining pavilion surrounded by koi ponds.  By: Big Island Now
