Hilo, HI 96721
Listing RemarksThis hand crafted house nestled in a peaceful, park like setting is located just 7 minutes from historic Honoka’a town.
Ohi’a posts frame the entrance, leading into an open beam living area filled with light from both skylights and gable end windowed walls. Locally sourced tropical wood is featured beginning with the 8’ entrance door and matching rear door, a kitchen countertop and solid slab island, and vanities in both interior bathrooms, all made from the distinctive richly grained monkeypod. The stately Norfolk pine posts in the main room and the robusta railing caps on all 3 lanais were created from wood milled on the property. Except for tile floors in the bathrooms, the rest of the house has robusta flooring and baseboards, window and door trim. The 5 bedrooms are each trimmed with Douglas fir, and have solid fir doors.
Serviced by good roads and by county water and power, the utilities go underground at the property line, preserving the pristine look of the ohi’a grove.
The 5 acre property contains plantings from the original homestead as well as more recently planted fruit trees including Macadamia nuts, coffee, bananas, avocados, various citrus, cherimoya, longon, papayas, cinnamon, cloves and a fenced pineapple patch, with forested borders to enhance privacy.
Other featured plantings include pua’kinikini, gardenia, tiare and plumeria.
An outdoor wood fired cast iron bathtub, set into lava rock with a red cedar deck provides a unique bathing experience.
This special house combines functionality with craftsmanship and the natural beauty of the grounds to make this a rare find.
