When a property is touted with terms such as ‘museum quality’, there is often not much to back it up, but with this house it's 100% true. Casa Olabuenaga has been featured in many international museum shows including a cover appearance for a Cologne Exhibit, The Venice Architecture Biennale, Georges Pompidou Centre in Paris, LACMA in Los Angeles, and a retrospective in Trieste, Italy to name a few. This home is a must see for the avid international art collector. Situated on the gentle slopes of the mountains of Maui, Casa Olabuenaga is the brainchild of world renowned Italian designer Ettore Sotsass and is now offered for the first time ever to the public. Approaching the gates of the property and feel a rush of excitement pour over as the gates open to reveal this masterpiece. Upon entering be greeted with a treasure trove of organic landscaping including Mature Koa trees, sandalwood, kukui nut, date palms, sandalwood, as well as a a 90 year old sago palm cluster. Recently ‘refreshed’ this home now presents itself with fresh exterior paint, LED lights and and an exterior deck finished to ‘furniture’ quality. Situated on a half acre with three exquisite bedrooms and three bathrooms each inlaid with custom Italian tiles, this home exudes a sense of comfort while allowing the buyer to enjoy the genius mind found in Sotsass' design of this property. Throughout this property great thought was given, in the kitchen the owners had internationally renowned chef, Bev Gannon consult on the layout and functionality leading to an intuitive cooking experience. 

After viewing the other stunning bedrooms, enter the master bedroom which 
Sottsass explained to the owners that the horizontal framing of the many windows intent was to be a kind of blindfold, showing just the sky and the trees, and as to not give away the entire view all at once. To see the ocean view, one must be lying in the bed or approaching the windows. Great office space, and formal and informal entertaining environments as well as a garage designed by Sottsass. Made of zinc/alum that was made and sent from New Zealand and assembled on site to culminate the impeccable grounds. There is so much more to see and experience at this extremely rare property. Showings to pre-screened and qualified buyers only.
