917 Lower Hog Back Road is an award-winning North Shore Maui home. It received an ‘Award of Merit’ by the American Institute of Architects, and is noted as one of Riecke Sunnland Kono Architects’ most famous Hawaiian-style homes. Built by Paul Beagle Construction, this 4.27+ acre Maui home is without a doubt one of the most premier luxury properties in Maui’s real estate history. From all parts of the home and outlying acreage, Pacific Ocean views surround. 

This single level country home is easily maintained, and set amongst the most impeccably maintained, green rolling acreage. The gardens feature mature landscaping, and Hawaii flora and fauna that was purposely placed for fragrance and beauty; gardenia, plumeria, night blooming jasmine, and pikaki.

Remodeled in 2019, the main home features 3,300 square feet of living space, an impressive open floor plan, 2 master bedrooms, and 2 1/2 bathrooms. Adjacent to the main house are two independent and detached cottages; a one bedroom and one bath ohana, and a second private structure that can be used as a home office, additional bedroom, yoga and fitness room, or an art studio. 

The master suite is one of elegant improvements. In addition to the indoor full luxurious bathroom, the master suite also offers an unforgettable private outdoor spa area that’s outfitted with a Native Trails stone outdoor soaking bathtub, and an outdoor shower; all set on Alaskan cedar decking. Luxuriate in Maui’s sunshine, enjoy a glass of wine at sunset, and/or bathing during a Maui sunrise or star-filled evening.

The modern and efficient gourmet kitchen is a chefs dream with all new state-of-the-art Bosch Pro appliances. Cesar stone countertops, porcelain tile, and custom wood Italian resurfaced cabinetry bring the touch of modern vitality. It’s a redesigned Hawaiian plantation home; once the home of John Baer, the man behind the design and production of the foam cup.

With award levels of architecture presented throughout the home, rooms seamlessly flow into the outdoor lanai areas inviting the most incredible opportunities for an indoor- outdoor island lifestyle. There’s all new LED sconce lighting including the landscaping lighting. The copper roof and new copper rain gutters are designed through a mitigation of unsound piping to move water away, and eliminate standing water issues. The covered wrap around lanai (deck space) provides 1,600 square feet of lounge space; creating the perfect mood for daily relaxation and enjoyment with ocean views. During the day, sunlight gently permeates through the home offering comfort and warmth. All Pella windows and walkways provide panoramic country and ocean views. Without a doubt, 917 Lower Hog Back Road is the epitome of elegance, comfort, and luxury on Maui’s North Shore.

About Haiku & Maui’s North Shore


As you head east past Ho’okipa Beach Park, the Hana Highway will wind through the Maliko Gulch and bring you to the beginning of the Haiku area. Haiku lies alongside the North Shore coastline, and throughout more mountainous regions. It stretches to Huelo on the coast, and heads up towards Upcountry areas reaching to Makawao Town.

In Haiku, buyers can find many rare properties; Maui oceanfront properties, Maui ranch estates and more. Haiku is a rural area, and much acreage is available. One of the best things about Haiku is the community. You will find many beautiful residential areas, ranch-style developments and private gated properties in Haiku. Surrounded by Maui’s lush tropical flora and fauna, all can find a piece of heaven in Haiku, Maui.

Area Highlights: FuzionFit Maui, Deep Relief Maui, NUKA, Sacred Garden of Maliko, organic farms, historical sites and churches, yoga studios, healing arts centers, restaurants, shopping and more.
