After 22 years, Van Halen’s Sammy Hagar has decided to part ways with his oceanfront estate.
“It’s like island living inside the house,” Hagar told the Los Angeles Times. “This place is like a painting.”
Situated atop the azure waters of Waipio Bay in lush Haiku, Maui, the 9.8-acre, cliffside retreat is being offered for $3.299 million through Island Sotheby’s International Realty agent Becky Hanna.
“It can be the most perfect place on earth,” said Hanna.
The three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath villa is situated on one of Maui’s most sustainable properties, equipped with solar-powered electricity, a private water well and water catchment. There’s also a tilapia pond, fruit trees and a terraced vegetable garden, allowing for self-sufficient living in paradise.
“The Hagars are very much into sustainability of the property,” said Hanna. “That's been real focus for them.”
Hagar, 70, is best known as the lead singer for rock bands Montrose and Van Halen. His Maui estate has been a gathering place for famous chefs and musicians for two decades, where the rock icon built a gourmet kitchen and outdoor brick pizza oven.
With swaying palms trees and panoramic ocean views on the horizon, the home opens onto a lanai with a 1,500-square-foot saline pool, hot tub and Hawaiian pavilion perfect for entertaining guests.
The property is situated just 20 minutes from the beach town of Maui, but far enough into east Maui to get away from the hustle and bustle. Hike to nearby waterfalls in the area, or simply enjoy reading a book in the oceanfront hammock on site.
“It’s a secluded retreat,” said Hanna.
