    Located on the Big Island of Hawaii, Landmark Residence designed by Kendrick Kellogg, The Onion House is for the first time being offered for sale since it was built for the McCormick Spice Family decades ago.

    Exhibiting phenomenal and timeless architecture, this sculpture of a home has inspired many as it is currently operated as a very robust Vacation Rental. Working along side Kellogg, was artist and designer James Hubbell who is widely known for his organic style buildings which are complete works-of-art.

    Featuring two separate pods, one of them with the main living space and the other as a private Master Oasis. A central canopy connects the two units, under which stairs lead into the 70 foot long pool. At night, the arched structures light up like twin Japanese lanterns, reflected in the water. The substantial interior walls are formed of Hawaiian Koa wood and lava rock, while the outer walls are screen and a mosaic of stained glass, allowing you to enjoy the soft breeze off the vast Pacific Ocean.
