Michael Crichton's Hawaii, Estate of the Day
We've spent a lot of time talking about the belongings of the late author Michael Crichton lately. His art collection achieved records and his real estate is selling well too. One home in Hawaii sold in December for $10.1 million and, as the Wall Street Journal's Private Properties column reports, a second Kauai home is on the market for $12 million through Bali Hai Realty. The home is a classic 1926 plantation style estate on Kauai's Hanalei Bay, surrounded by mountains and adjacent to the beach.
The nearly 1.2 acre estate includes citrus trees and spans over three parcels, one of which is vacant. There is a two-bedroom guest cottage as well as the two-bedroom, 3,000-square-foot main house. The main house has a casual feel with low whitewashed wood ceilings, long verandas facing the ocean and a country kitchen. Other buildings include a yoga studio and a detached three-car garage.
