Easily the most spectacular oceanfront property on the market in East Hawaii, this Big Island home is situated on its own Hamakua Coast peninsula affording unparalleled views of Hilo Bay, Keaukaha and the vast Pacific Ocean as well as of the summit and slopes of Mauna Kea.
Although there are county utilities available at the top of the property, this home is entirely off-grid. It has 28 photovoltaic panels which can produce 4.9 KW of power, a 10 KW liquid propane generator and 2 inverters with 220V capability, all of which can be controlled from a panel inside the home. The house also has solar hot water with a propane on-demand back-up water system as well as passive air conditioning.
Built to capture the magnificent ocean views from every possible vantage point, the gracious 2,380 sq ft plantation-style home has a great room which features solid oak floors, 9 ft. ceilings with artfully placed ribbon mahogany trim and a wood burning fireplace. The kitchen has granite counters, soft-close “cherry” laminate cabinets with oak trim and top-of-the-line stainless appliances. The main house consists of 2 bedrooms and 2 baths plus a separate guest wing connected to the house by a covered breezeway. For entertaining, there is a sound system throughout the house as well as the expansive covered lanai which is constructed of Ipê, an extremely durable Brazilian hardwood known for being weather-resistant and easy to maintain.
Comprised of two parcels, the total land area of this stunning Papaikou property is 15.60 acres. The home sits on 1.5 landscaped, fenced acres zoned as conservation land, while the remaining land is zoned for agricultural use (7 acres is pasture land and approximately 7 acres is planted with Hearts of Palm).
