Perched on a hilltop with amazing views of Hilo Bay is a beautifully restored Original 1934
Hawaiian Plantation Home. Great care was taken to preserve the integrity of the original
structure and charm, while making significant upgrades throughout.
This lovely home features beautiful, reclaimed Yellow Southern Pine plank flooring. The infrastructure
of the house has been completely upgraded including new electrical and plumbing systems, new
roof with copper gutters, and tankless on-demand water heater. The foundation was rebuilt and seismically retrofitted in 2018.
Fully remodeled gourmet kitchen with all new stainless steel appliances, quartz
counter tops, large farmhouse sink, tons of storage, and a separate laundry area with new extra
large washer and dryer. Bathroom features a large step-in shower with handmade tiles, marble tile floors, large
double-sink vanity, and high end fixtures.
Enjoy views of Hilo Bay from kitchen windows and loads of natural
light from French doors with steps leading to the garden.
Large private garden is filled with exotic tropicals, including some very rare plants.
Magnificent old growth avocado and mango trees line one side of the property, with loads of
fragrant plants found throughout the garden including gardenias, ginger, and jasmine.
Other features of the property include:
- New paint inside and out
- Solid brass hardware on all doors and cabinetry
- Large bedrooms
- Detached garage
- Solid cast iron ceiling fans
- AND only 10 minutes from downtown Hilo
The neighborhood offers several nice attractions and activities. The Donkey Trail leading to
Onomea Bay and the Hawaiian Tropical Botanical Garden is just over a mile away. And should
you want to cool off, you’re just a 5 minute walk from Mill Beach, which features a cool water
stream and a black sand beach.
