Description: The Hawaii home of the McCormick Spice family - the "Onion House" looks like, .... well the name describes it well. The walls are made of screen and stained glass, creating an extremely light and airy home. At night translucent roof panels glow like Japanese lanterns. Made of two arched structures, the Onion House is surrounded by a beautiful pool, fishponds, magical gardens and perched on a lava rock that offer majestic views of the Kona Coast.

The house was handcrafted by renowned architect Ken Kellog, an originator of Organic Architecture and the the Kona home of Hawaii artist Beth McCormick. It is the place where she learned that "art is not something you look at but something that you live."

The curves and details, of the house, are as captivating as the surrounding views. The Onion House is outdoor living at its finest. While vacationing here you will be nestled in the shelter of Hualalai at an elevation of 500 feet.

Global Architecture Magazine describes this Kailua Kona wonder as "Architecture so full of life that it seems to breathe."

Much of the design is inspired by the nature. Lava Rock walls create a high terrace overlooking the sea, where two arching domes lie surrounded by pools, fishponds and gardens. Light filters through colorful stained glass walls and translucent roof panels. With stunning visual aesthetics and luscious tropical surroundings, the compound affords ample privacy in which to swim, sunbathe, and enjoy the gardens, lilyponds, and 70' foot turquoise pool. A covered outdoor walkway connects the separate master bedroom, with private walled meditation garden, to the main structure, which holds two smaller bedrooms, bath, and fully equipped kitchen. With grounds of nearly an acre, the home is five minutes from town or beaches, yet worlds away.

This is one home that you will never want to leave and once you do your life will be forever changed...for the better!
