Home Pick of the Week--Maui

Home Pick of the Week

The home picks of the week is a property that I highlight as a special opportunity for buyers.  Picks may be based on features, location, value, or other criteria that I believe makes the property worthy of special consideration.  I do not accept fees for featuring a property.

This week's pick is a 5+ acre estate located on the island of Maui in what is called Upcountry because it's on the slopes of the dormant Haleakala volcano.

There has to be something bad about being at the base of a volcano.  Even a dormant one would make me nervous.  Of course that is Hawaii :)

I like your idea of doing a "Home Pick Of The Week"! I bet the views are beautiful from this home. How long has Haleakala been dormant for?

Wayne - It's thought the last eruption was around 1790 in a remote area.  It did flow down to the ocean so a little beachfront home in the wrong area would have been scortched.

Personally, I'd be more worried about my home being struck by lightning although that's very remote as well given that lightning storms in Hawaii are extremely rare.  I can only think of 2 or 3 such storms I've wittnessed in the last 4 years and none of them produced cloud to ground lightning.  I'd guess that maybe tsunamis are the biggest risk.  There are reports that there was one in 1946 that killed 14 people and destroyed 77 homes.

This data makes me feel like I have picked one of the safest places to live.

Hi Terrie - See my comment to Wayne on dormancy.  People love upcountry because the higher you go the cooler it gets.  Fireplaces can even become useful in the evenings at some elevations.  Yet the beaches always beckon with their near-perfect temperatures.

Richard, that is a view of a lifetime. I do not know a buyer that could turned that down.

Danny - Not only do you get a "king of the mountain" feeling but it's awesome that you can see ocean on both sides of the island. 

Thanks for your comment.  Aloha!
