With a bird’s eye view of the sweeping plains across to Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, Hualalai and down to the Kohala Resort Gold Coast, this 3-bedroom, 3 bath home in upcountry Kamuela on the Big Island of Hawaii was last on the market 16 years ago. Lanais on 3 levels and large windows to views merge indoor and outdoor living for a spacious and natural light-filled feeling throughout. Ideally suited to enjoy morning sunshine and evening sunsets, views are beyond and over the ocean including sweeping views of the traditional annual fireworks on 4th of July, New Year’s light shows, and annual lighting of Parker Ranch Historic Home's Christmas Tree. With 2400 sqft. on 3 levels, there are both open and private areas for multifamily living. The permitted office/bath area with closet on lower level worked also as a bedroom, as well as a hosted Airbnb. Bonus room on middle level, perfect for office or craft room, technically not a bedroom (no closet), however with built-in cabinets, functioned as a child's bedroom and later as occasional guest room, bringing the total, potential bedroom count to 4. Ample storage closets, built-in shelves and drawers, new and nearly new stainless-steel appliances, new paint, vaulted ceiling, with bamboo flooring on top floor and staircase. Quarter-acre lot offers privacy with mature landscaping and rock garden on hillside plus banana and citrus trees and multiple areas for gardening for farm-to-table living. Centrally located on island with cooler temperatures at 2700 ft. elevation, Waimea boasts a highly-regarded hospital, 2 private college prep schools, Hawaiian-focused charter and public schools with 6 farmers markets weekly, while only minutes from Kohala Coast resorts, beaches and golf. This sought-after neighborhood is easy walking distance to shops in Waimea Town. Nestled in the hillside of Pu’u Hoku’ula, protected from the winds sweeping down the Kohala Mountains, this little gem is a treasure, lovingly upgraded and ready for new memories.
