Listing RemarksRARE OPPORTUNITY! Two homes on 1.79 spectacular view acres at the top of Laelae Rd., one of Waimea's premier neighborhoods. Quiet and peaceful country living so close to town that you can walk if you choose to.
The main home was built in 1997 and features hardwood flooring, a beautiful wood-burning fireplace with built-in floor-to-ceiling art niches, a spacious eat-in kitchen, separate formal dining room, and walls of windows to the view. A covered lanai and in-ground exercise pool are perfect places to watch the sunset along the Kona Coast or the sunrise over the top of Mauna Kea.
The 2nd home "The Cottage" was built in 1951. It has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths and is constructed of lava rock and split ohia wood. The charm of yesteryear can be seen in every nook and cranny of this 798 sq. ft. home that could be used for your extended family, guests, or as an artists retreat. Since the County of Hawaii no longer allows a 2nd home on Ag zoned land without a farm use, the second home is a real bonus.
Waimea is a small rural community with advantages usually found only in urban areas. There are public, private, and charter schools, Queens North Hawaii Hospital, good restaurants, a performance theater, public parks, walking trails, several farmers markets, and just minutes from world-class white sand beaches and golf courses.
There are currently only two properties on the market in this part of Waimea. Now is your chance to own one of the best!
