Old Hawaii still exists here on the Big Island of Hawaii down on the Red Road in lower Puna. Called the “sun belt” for its high percentage of blue sky days, this area is a welcome throwback to what Hawaii was like before the development that devoured Oahu, Kauai and Maui.
A large iron gate with a Bird of Paradise motif greets you at the turn off of the county, paved road. Drive up the gently winding drive to the house and free standing, two car carport.
The home was built in 2000 and is in excellent condition and well maintained. It is built in the classic Craftsman style with chair rails, wainscoting, French doors, double hung windows and a cupola high above keeping the house cool and ventilated. A Viking stove in the gourmet kitchen invites you to create meals for family and friends in the open space design. Custom made kitchen cabinets, Koa wood and Corian counters and a breakfast bar complete this well designed kitchen. Chocolate eucalyptus hardwood floors are throughout the house. Two bedrooms and two full, tiled baths are off the main living space which opens onto a large covered lanai with dining on one side and a sitting area on the other. Life is lived on a lanai like this one! A window seat creates a wonderful reading area on the back side of the main living space. Large windows let in the cool ocean breezes and lots of light.
6.14 acres of privacy with ocean views and located at an ideal 90’ elevation. Level land with a gently slope towards the sea provides opportunity for a self sufficient lifestyle. No power bills here! A 32 panel solar array with all newly installed batteries provides more power than the current owner needs. The size of the property provides ample acreage for fruit orchards and vegetable gardens.
This is a one of a kind property with a one of a kind home. Kalani Honua Eco Resort is just down the road as is Kahena Black Sand Beach. This is an ideal location and a prime property.
