Thanks to the global COVID-19 pandemic that has been raging for more than two years, people have been looking for new ways to escape it. And this property on the real estate market in Haiku, Hawaii, for $3.99 million will do just that: let you get away from the rest of the world.
“Off-grid living is about being self-sufficient,” the listing on Island Sotheby’s International Realty reads. “The off-grid lifestyle varies greatly depending on your needs and wants. Some may view the off-grid life as a difficult existence; the property at 796 Awalau Road will undoubtedly change that perception.
The property known as the “Art Farm” sits on a private road and consists of four buildings, running on 48 solar panels on 16 acres with breathtaking views of Haleakala National Park.
“The property has been organized as a passion project with the intention of proving that living off the traditional grid can be done at a premium level,” listing agent Maeghan Pocock told Mansion Global. “Normally people think of off-grid life as a sort of rustic experience. This property offers all the incredible comforts of the 21st century and more.”
The main house is a one-bedroom, one-bathroom open-plan home with large windows and a “mechanical glass garage door,” Mansion Global reported.

“This one-of-a-kind property is the opportunity of a lifetime to live the Maui lifestyle in an eco-conscious, self-sufficient private retreat,” the listing reads.
The “art farm” was built in 2018 by Thomas Rusnak, a former architecture professor, Dwell reported.
“When we walked the property before construction, we immediately fell in love with the three rock-lined streams and the beauty of the rolling pastures,” Rusnak said, according to Dwell.
