A luxury beachfront Makena estate sold for $15.5 million, marking the first significant sale of 2017.

The four-bedroom, seven-bath home in the resort area of South Maui sold for $15.5 million. Island Sotheby’s International Realty agent Courtney Brown represented the buyers, who are ecstatic to live in such an exceptional home.



"We are so grateful to live in this astonishing place," said M. Barrett, who bought the home. "The experience of working with Ms.Brown has been a privilege and a gift."   

This 5,400-square-foot home is surrounded by tropical gardens, with panoramic ocean views visible from every room in the house. The interior of the home adorned with fine detailing including warm-colored woods and natural stone. Expansive 10-foot high sliding glass doors open to a lush interior courtyard or meticulously landscape lawn. 

The master suite boasts sweeping ocean views of Maui’s south coast, a massive bath and private courtyard with an exotic outdoor shower. A climate-controlled, 800-plus bottle wine room complements the exquisite gourmet kitchen.

Outside, about 1,400-square-feet of lanais surround the estate, leading to a tiled pool, spa and cabana. An outdoor kitchen is equipped with an over-sized BBQ, sink, under-counter refrigerator and half bath.

From the pool area, stroll onto one of the finest black-sand beaches in South Maui, where guests can enjoy stand-up paddle boarding, snorkeling or a walk down the beach at sunset. Nothing compares to this breathtaking beachfront estate on one of Maui’s most secluded beaches.

"It has been a dream for my husband and I to own a property in Maui," said Barrett. "Courtney Brown found this magical home for us. Her vision, calm authority and intelligence made this a seamless process."
