In a coastal town along the North Shore of Kauai, Hawaii, a stunning new development is poised to offer the homeowner a rare opportunity.

This is known as “House of Butterflies”, and is scheduled to be completed at the end of 2022. Its whimsical nickname comes from its “roof steam lines,” according to a listing on Hawaii Life.

Listed at $12.5 million, the three-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom home “represents a rare project where a buyer can get new house on one of the most storied beaches on the island,” the press release said.

“Situated on over half an acre, this unique home commands sweeping views in two directions: crystal clear coral reef in the front and breathtaking mountain and waterfall views in the rear.”

The photos show idyllic renderings of the 2,121-square-foot interior and its magnificent patio, which offers brilliant views.

According to, ladies in the area for decadeswhich will keep the Butterfly House — the first newly built residence in 20 years — looking its best.

“If you look at (local housing) inventory, it’s pretty static,” real estate agent Ben Welborn told “There’s hardly anything new.”

Features of the home will include:

Agents hope the beautiful residence will attract a certain breed of buyer.

“This is someone looking for a modern beach house,” Welborn told the realtor. “It’s the architecture that makes it different. It may not even be just for Kauai. Or the buyer can be someone who already lives here and is waiting and watching.”

The listing is held by Welborn and Tiffany Spencer.
