When you hear that someone’s home has been named a finalist for HGTV’s Ultimate House Hunt, you know that this is way more than just a home. Scrolling through the properties in the various categories is sure to elicit a long series of oohs and ahhhhs, because this is just straight daydream fuel. But the chance to actually own one? That sure would be something, and someone somewhere is about to make that incredible dream come true.
Known as the Waterfalling Estate because of a neighboring 240-foot, triple-drop waterfall, this sprawling compound could be mistaken for a small resort because of its fabulous outdoor amenities, like a large swimming pool with a second-story waterslide, a tennis and basketball court with stadium seating for up to 450 people, and a nine-hole golf course. But with more than 8,100-sq. ft. of living space across three magnificent levels, it’s no wonder why a mega-star like Justin Bieber chose to vacation here or reality TV producers picked it as a perfect setting for TV romance.
Inside, family members will fight for dibs over the third floor’s pair of matching master suites, which boast a lanai for enjoying those Big Island views. Those rooms are joined by an office and fitness room, so guests won’t have to go far to get work done in either capacity. And, if everyone is in a hurry, there’s convenient access to the helipad. Who hasn’t been in that situation before?
There are five bedrooms and 10 bathrooms total—not to mention a guest house that sleeps three—and the open concept of the living and dining areas and kitchen make it clear why this was Bieber’s choice for a vacation with his entourage and their supermodel friends. Everyone will certainly enjoy the media and game rooms, as well as the whirlpools (yes, plural) and sauna, but it’s still what is outside that will really blow some minds.
Set on slightly less than 9.5 acres of Big Island’s Hamakua Coast, the Waterfalling Estate is currently listed for $9.95 million, which seems low considering its long list of awesome amenities. It will hit the auction block on August 15 with a reserve of $5.99 million, so it could end up a terrific bargain for one lucky buyer.
