Waiki'i Ranch, Estate of the Day
Today's home is an interesting case of a style of architecture in a different place. We usually see massive log cabins in Wyoming or Montana but Waiki'i Ranch is in Kamuela, Hawaii. The 53-acre working ranch includes a four-bedroom main house, a one-bedroom guest cottage and a seven stall stable. There is also a riding arena and a tractor barn. The main house is constructed of massive cedar logs, hand selected from the forests of Canada. Not a single nail was used in the joining of the logs. The house was constructed initially in Canada then deconstructed and recreated in Hawaii log by log with precise joinery, chiseled by hand for a perfect fit. The ranch has 360 degree views of the ocean all the way down the Gold Coast north and south with views of Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, Hualalai and the mountains of North Kohala but inside you'd think you were tucked into a Big Sky hideaway . This property is listed at $18.5 million.
