MAHINUI TREEHOUSE is a true tree house designed by and constructed with the help of Roderick Romero Wolgamott and Pete Nelson, tree house masters. Constructed out of recycled lumber from a church on Oahu, it is imbued with spirit. Once you park and walk in through the Moon Gate onto the trail to the tree house, you are in a very special place, a fairy land. As you climb the stairway to the main level you are transported to a time when you were a kid and you never want to climb back down. Yes, the main entry door is not a standard 8' height because this is a "hobbit" house all scaled to the size appropriate to the whole. Remember you are in fairy land on the road less traveled! Built completely off the grid, the home is powered by generator with water catchment, on demand hot water, a gas fireplace and a composting toilet. You will love the ample decks to set awhile and enjoy bird songs and views into the forest. A two person redwood hot tub is recessed into the main deck with access to a large walk through shower into the main living area. Accents of stained glass by former local artist, Seneca La Londe, highlight various interior spaces. Being sold "turnkey" with all furnishings, small appliances, linens, etc. The only exceptions are a hand stitched Hawaiian quilt and Brown Jordan cast aluminum patio chairs. Those will be included with a full price offer. Seller prefers to sell this with their Main House at 11-3907 6th St. (MLS# 628815) as this has been their "guest suite" for visitors as well as a very successful "hosted" vacation rental. This property must be a CASH purchase due to inability of County to permit the construction as they have no permitting guidelines for tree houses. Owner can advise on changes County would require if future permitting of structure is desired. History on builder and “Mahinui Treehouse” attached at tool bar. DO NOT ENTER THE PROPERTY WITHOUT AN APPOINTMENT-VISITOR OCCUPIED!
