Looking for an elegant Hilo home? Look no further. This is a beautiful 4 bedroom home with a horseshoe driveway on one acre in one of the best locations in Hilo.
Enter this single level home through solid koa doors and be wowed first by light flooding through skylights in the vaulted ceilings onto the spectacular koa paneling and an architect-designed FireDrum 2 in the living room. Look across a sitting room and out through the sliding doors and you’ll find a spacious covered lanai -– perfect for any weather. Beyond the lanai is an enormous rolling lawn with a view of Hilo Bay on the horizon.
The master suite features vaulted ceilings, koa paneling, a recently remodeled bathroom, and ocean views, too. There are three additional comfortable bedrooms with dehumidifiers in each closet, a large second bathroom, two storage rooms, and two storage attics with lights and insulation. Every room is equipped with a ceiling fan for extra breeze and comfort.
Inside the heart of the home is an eat-in kitchen with 8 foot mahogany cabinets and a bar that opens into an adjoining media room with surround sound. The kitchen and media room both have hand-painted murals on the ceilings. A mud room with a shower and full laundry connects the carport with the home.
Serene gardens surround the home, and are planted with over 100 white and golden pineapples, Seville orange, papaya, banana, avocado, macadamia nut, other fruit trees and a variety of orchids. A chef’s greenhouse and herb garden contains sage, thyme, basil, lemongrass, chives, mint and more. There are also 6 storage units in the garden.
This location affords quick access to Hilo Medical Center, the University of Hawaii at Hilo, the Joint Astronomy Centers, and the Daniel K. Inouye Highway.
The large 1 acre parcels in this area create a feeling of privacy.
This well-made home has a new roof and new skylights.
