If you were not able to see this house during the Realtor's Caravan that Trudy organized do give her a call so we can arrange for you to preview the house.

Soo... what's our house like?

We have a great entryway. Double door entry with a big porch that leads into a foyer that looks on to the atrium. There is a covered breezeway that leads from the front driveway to the front door.

We did not put in 'wood' floors because it just is not practical in the island so opted for Pergo flooring throughout, (except in bathrooms).

In both the bathrooms we chose a high quality fixtures.

We added ceramic tile floors, shower/bath stalls as well as both sinks. There is a Jacuzzi in master bath with sink area in the dressing room. A clear glass shower door is in the 2nd bath.

Black granite in kitchen with black smooth top stove, black fridge, dishwasher and oven create a very hip look. We did not go with the Stainless because we noticed in the store that yes indeed they do get fingerprints and that was not appealing to us.

In the master bedroom we have pre-organized closets as well as in the 'dressing room' which includes drawers and shelve. Pre-organized shelve are NOT done in rubber coated wire but in wood making for a lasting and cleaner design.

Built in Bonus in our home is the built in china cabinet in the dining area as well as the drawers and shelves in the master bedroom, already mentioned.

We furnished this house with a minimalist approach so that the buyer might be able to envision their own furnishing in the home.

Grass and mature landscaping is abundant around this architect designed home. The yard is fully fenced with locking gate. Mac nut, mango, avocado, cotton candy, coconut, sequoia pines trees, gingers, orchids,ti leaf plants, ferns, and many other tropical flowers. Lava rock walls are throughout the yard.

This is not a 'kit home'! The house is a U shape with an Atrium and koi pond in the middle. Upon entering the house one looks onto the atrium as well, which is seen in almost every room.

Other attributes:

Double garage with side workshop area and full bath. Out buildings, COUNTY WATER, partially set up for catchment, SOLAR PANEL, fully covered paved breezeway from paved driveway to wide four step stairway that meets double door entry.

Central Vacuum - Plumbing (so to speak) There is an outlet in each room, a little square box on the wall that has a lid that pulls up. Inside there is a hole for a vacuum hose. Under the house there is a thing that looks like a barrel where the dust and dirt from the vacuum goes.

Nanawale Community pool, community house, the basketball court/park, surfing, groceries, pharmacy, restaurants, gift shops, schools, churches, 10-15 minutes away.

The town of Pahoa also has an amazing Olympic size pool and Community Center.

NOTE: While some people seek out Hilo area for convenience because of shopping, etc., Keep in mind that Pahoa has convenience of shopping and restaurants too, yes many of the same attributes. It hosts the quaint old part of Pahoa as well as its new shopping center.

Mahalo nui and remember if you are in the neighborhood be sure and stop by!
