Scott Watson, a developer in Hawaii, built this 10,000-square-foot Waterfalling estate, perched on a cliff on the Big Island’s Hamakua Coast, over the course of four years. Well, make that seven years, start to finish; four years were spent on the main structure alone.
The home has a high-dive platform, a two-story water slide, a three-chopper helipad, a space-age vacuum-tube elevator lined in Louis Vuitton leather, a nine-tee golf course, a 450-seat tennis stadium — oh, and of course you can whale-watch from the bedroom.
Truth be told,Watson would love to do even more to the property. It has enough land — about 10 acres — to build out a second house just like the first and make a “super trophy home for a Donald Trump or a Larry Ellison or Oprah,” he says.
He’s so confident he issues an open invitation: “I dare any one of those guys” to visit the property. “I’d put this house up against any house anywhere in the world.” It’s such a fantastic property that Trump could buy it, slap a giant T on the helipad, and turn around and sell it the next day for twice as much as Watson can get for it, Watson says.
