The Treadwell House was built with endless childhood summers in mind, keeping the simple and joyful spirit of a beach house while meeting a more modern standard. This delightful home will appeal to those who also had the luck to experience such childhood summers…or simply wish they had!
The owners of this home are four of the grandchildren of R.T and Gerry Treadwell, who first purchased the property in the 1930’s when R.T was the doctor in Kohala. One is an architect, who designed it to “alight gently on the land,” distilling details to keep the uncluttered, pared-down lifestyle recalled from those childhood summers. Elegant in its simplicity and consistent style, the home is raised on concrete pilings with a butterfly roof, which collects and channels rainwater, an old custom in this arid climate. Designed to capture the trade-wind breezes and give its inhabitants both communal space and privacy, the home is open, airy and thoroughly “old Hawaii.”
