Larry Leight, the founder of luxury eyewear brand Oliver Peoples, dreamed of having a piece of Hawaiian paradise for years before he finally took the plunge and nabbed this gorgeous getaway. The avid surfer visited the islands as often as possible for decades until he put down roots on Kaua’i in 2008 after selling his company to Oakley. Recently, Leight hasn’t had the time to travel to his beloved oasis, which is what brought him to reluctantly list it for $7.5 million.Surrounded by natural beauty and coming complete with its own sandy beach, the 2,341-square-foot house is a sanctuary for nature lovers. Walls of glass offer constant ocean views and outdoor living is a dream with a large patio with a dining area, ample seating, and a grill. From the pool, a walkway leads straight to the water, so you needn’t have a worry in the world when calling this place home.Bright interiors exude happy vacation vibes, and there are just three bedrooms and two bathrooms so having guests to visit is no problem, but stays intimate. The master bedroom is an escape in itself with its own private balcony, so the first thing to greet you in the morning can be sea air and sunshine.The property has been a popular vacation rental for years, so perhaps a besotted previous resident will swoop in to get this residence for keeps. Hannah Sirois of Elite Pacific Properties
has the dreamy listing, which Mansion Global
first reported is for sale.
