Buying A Luxury Home In Kona

Buying A Luxury Home In Kona

Your dream house. Even if you aren’t in the market for it right now, chances are you have a few things in mind that would be required for it to qualify.

Dream homes aren’t your average, run of the mill houses. Dream homes have luxury abound. They have the little things you’ve waited for your whole life. They are the details that make you say “wow” every single day.

And if part of the dream means you’ll be living in Hawaii, buying a luxury home in Kona is the perfect place to start. Because luxury homes here start with the number one thing on almost every luxury homeowners wish list … an incredible view.

Want to know what else tops the wish lists of luxury home buyers everywhere?

Livability

When it comes to buying a luxury home, size isn’t everything. And increasingly, many home buyers are downsizing and moving for convenience, not to increase floor space. They want livable space that makes sense in their daily lives. They want the views and the natural light that makes a home more inviting and open. They want comfortable floor plans that make transitions smooth. They want accessibility to everything they need in the most efficient way. Size doesn’t matter. Having a great life does.

A Story To Tell

Human beings are naturally drawn in by stories. If you’ve ever had a cookie-cutter home in the suburbs, you know there’s not much of a story to tell within those walls. But when a house is custom built for luxury, it’s the stories that make a home unique. Like having a bath tub in the master suite hand crafted in Italy and shipped in to Kona, all to create the perfect ambiance of an old-world retreat. Or landscaping a pool and spa to enhance several old trees that are more than 100 years old. Those stories add personality and class that are unparalleled in other homes.

Above Average Amenities

While size of the home rarely matters, what does matter are the bells and whistles that come with the home. Luxury home buyers want the little things that make life easier. Priority standing at an exclusive golf course. Private access to a world renown health club. Priority seating at high class restaurants. Property management teams that make living in a community even easier.

The Dream Kitchen

Its been said that most households center their lives around the kitchen. And study after study shows it’s the most important room in the home when it comes to selling a home. Over 54 percent of luxury buyers identify a chef’s kitchen as the top feature when house hunting. And no matter what state you come from on the Mainland, chances are you’ve never seen kitchens quite like you will in some of the homes here (that’s what sold me on my own home!) Think free-flowing kitchens inside and out. Fold back glass walls are popular and can increase your living space for parties and family gatherings. Chef’s kitchens are truly the status symbol of the 21st century, and you’re going to love what you find in Kona.

What’s your dream? If it involves relocating to Hawaii, and Kona has made it to the top of your list, I can help you find the perfect place. Whether it’s a second home, or a place to retire and live the good life, the lap of luxury awaits you here on the Big Island of Hawaii.
