As a long time visitor to Maui, Steven Tyler had been looking at beachfront homes for quite some time. And as released by the Wall Street Journal, the American Idol judge purchase a home on the prestigious Makena district in South Maui. Makena is also rumored to be home (or in this case, second-home) to a myriad of celebrities, including Oprah, Jennifer Aniston, and Clint Eastwood. And now that the season of American Idol has come to an end, perhaps it is time for Steven to come back to South Maui.
Steven’s new home is an oceanfront 2 bedroom / 3.5 bathroom Makena property on 1/4 acre. With 3,000 square feet of interior space, covered outdoor living space of over 1,400 square feet, a very distinct Hawaiiana feel to it mixed with world-class luxury finishes and a phenomenal pool overlooking the ocean, it is a perfect setting for entertaining. With a very unique location on a promontory, it is surrounded on 3 sides by the Pacific. It had been offered at $6,495,000 but sold for $4.8M after being on the market for over 500 days (luxury properties typically spend much longer on the market as the pool of buyers is much more limited). With time, there is a high probability that this will prove to be a great investment for Steven. Not only did he buy a house, he made the time much more memorable by getting engaged to long-time girlfriend, Erin Brady.
