Located in quiet upcountry Maui, 707 Calasa Road, is an Italian Tuscan style home situated on a hillside landscaped in a country Italian style with hundreds of olive trees and four vineyards. There are views of both coastlines and fantastic long sunsets over the West Maui mountains. The house is a two-bedroom, two bath with a loft. The floors are a beautiful Brazilian teak which have just been refinished on the main level. The ceilings are 16 feet tall with 5 small windows that dot two sides of the house for ambient light. The roof is tile and has withstood every storm without leaking or loss of tiles. There is a bathroom in the garage. There are actively producing olive trees for making oil and one can also have some olives for eating. The property also boasts a small grove of coffee trees (with an olive press and a small coffee roaster in the garage) as well as various citrus trees and newly planted lilikoi vines which are just starting to produce. The climate is mild year-round at the approximate 2,200 foot elevation, but there is a gas fireplace which can provide heat if needed during the winter. There is also an exterior stone carved bathtub and shower with available instant hot water outside the primary bedroom. There are large lawns on each side of the house with tiki torches and a pizza oven in the back. Between the house and the garage is a covered breezeway and there are large covered patios on the west side of the house. There are two parts to the property, with each one being about 8 acres. On the Calasa Road side is where all of the agriculture happens. The vast majority of the plantings are olive trees, which are mature and produce over 18 varieties of olives. Across the gulch on the Naalae Road side, lies the other 8 acres of this property. There is an existing 5/8” water meter which can irrigate the land on both sides of the gulch which may allow for a main home or CPR. The agriculture rate water bill has been approximately $200 a month. You’re on the waitlist for an additional water meter, number 537. As the day ends, your eco-conscious heart finds solace in the home’s sustainable off-grid features, from the 26 solar panels to the backup generator. And as you settle in, surrounded by modern amenities and rustic charm, you realize this isn’t just a house in Kula; it’s your personal Tuscan tale, waiting to be lived every day.
