Oscar-winning Pixar director Lee Unkrich is selling his magical vacation home overlooking Secret Beach on Kauai’s North Shore for $6.8 million.
Capturing the splendor of the tropical location, the two-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home at 2620-C Kauapea Rd. is beautifully crafted with gleaming and rich tropical woods and decorated in a tasteful, vintage style that reflects the Unkrich’s appreciation for 1920s Hawaiiana.
With luring charm and thoughtful details, it’s the sort of place where a Pixar character might live if a film were set in the Hawaiian Islands.
“I’ve had the house for 13 years now, and every time I’m there I find myself appreciating the details of the house, all the joinery and the mix of the teak and koa woods,” says Unkrich whose full-time residence is in the Bay Area. “What I do is very hands-on and I think that’s part of why I appreciate it. Looking at that house for me isn’t that different from looking at a movie and all the work and pieces that go into it.”
