Listing RemarksLooking for an escape? Something different? If so, then this two lot property in Leilani Estates may be just the home for you, as it is located just minutes from the comfort and convenience of historic Pahoa Town. Additional parcel 43 (tmk: 3-1-3-25-43) is included in the sale. Access to the privately placed two-story residence is through a private rain forest driveway that is lined with palms, ferns, monstera, anthuriums, and orchids. The residence is a permitted two bedroom/one bathroom log home with beautiful, recent upgrades including locally-sourced hardwood floors and ceilings. The home also includes a wonderful, large backyard lanai from which to look out at the grass-covered clearing or to the forest beyond. You get to make up your mind which you would enjoy more: the sound of the bird's songs or the taste of the fruit growing in your own yard (ulu, banana, avocado, citrus, star fruit, mountain apple, and coffee).
This retreat also includes an artist's workshop that was built without permits in 2010. In addition to the large, open areas of the workshop, there is an additional bathroom and artist's studio loft above from which you feel like you can reach out and touch the surrounding forest. And the forest has more treasures to share: waiwi, ohia, ti, heliconia, and ginger to name a few.
Neighborhood amenities include a Community Center with a multipurpose pavilion, playground, fitness trail, ball fields and meeting facilities where a variety of weekly activities and classes are available to Leilani Estates residents. If that's not enough, you can explore the dramatically altered coastline and near shore environment. Where there once was surfing, fishing, and snorkeling, now there are fresh lava flows to view and newly created black sand beaches to relax on. With just a little more of your personalized touch, this move-in ready house can be your paradise dream home.
