Maui Historical Craftsman Bungalow
This home was built in 1926 by the sugar plantation company, Alexander & Baldwin, for William W. Walsh, president of it's subsidiaries Kahului Railroad & Maui Electric Company which still operates a steam train on the remaining stretch of track in Lahaina, Maui, as a tourist attraction: the Sugar Cane Train. The fortuitous move of the structure to the desirable dry leeward side in 1964 preserved the house. It is located in the beach-side, family friendly Halama neighborhood cluster of homes, one of the few original beachside neighborhoods on Maui free of condos and hotels.
Taken from the large double driveway looking east. Haleakala can be seen from the property in the distance. The house faces west and fabulous Maui sunsets.
This is a rare piece of old Hawaii on the island of Maui; a livable original 1926 Craftsman style American Bungalow. The property includes a separate detached two bedroom one bath cottage, built in 1992 to match the original main house in craftsman style,also with 10 ft ceilings. The homes sit on a private one third acre, 13,562 sq. ft. corner lot, 300 feet from the ocean shore with beach access facing into the evening sunsets. The open beaches of South Maui stretch for miles, all beaches are public and accessible.
Very few original Hawaiian plantation manager's homes still exist in the state of Hawaii, fewer still on the island of Maui. This one is beautifully restored and set in a popular, world famous resort area.

Very few plantation manager homes of this size, quality and detail were built in Hawaii, particularly on the sparsely populated outer islands. This property is fully restored.
Modern Trex decking was installed on the front lanai porch in 2008. In 1997 the roof was stripped of all of the old roofing and a new roof was installed.
The garage is an original building with new Hardi-Plank siding and a new roof,(2001,) and new windows, one which is 48"X60". In the back of the garage is a full bathroom with new lo-flo toilet,shower & vanity.
The strikingly handsome historical Craftsman bungalow is on 1/3 acre of lush tropical landscaping 300 feet from a beach access. The southshore beaches extend for miles down this coastline. The home is secluded by hundreds of mature palms, flowering trees and tall clipped hedges.
It was moved in 1964 from it's original deep-water harbor location on the windward side of Maui to the sunny Kihei/Wailea resort area.
