Rarely do properties like this come along. This estate consists of two fully permitted homes.

The Front house has 1 bedroom, 1 bath, with a nice kitchen and laundry area plus a detached garage. Vaulted ceilings create a space that is truly spacious. The larger house is toward the back of the property with a walkway that connects the 2 homes; it currently has a divider for privacy that can be opened up very easily, the walkway leads directly to the gazebo viewing deck and the back house. The viewing deck is elevated above the roofline and treeline. It's a wonderful place to relax, enjoy, watch the moon and stars from your peaceful perch above it all. Viewing deck has a high vaulted ceiling that creates a wonderful outdoor space. The larger home has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths with a detached carport. Large covered front lanai with double doors grace this home. Enter to find soaring ceilings and tile floors. Arched doorways bring a feel of an eloquent villa to mind. Passive venting in the walls brings a cool ambient temperature to the home. Large chef's kitchen has a pantry, breakfast nook, center Island and multiple prep areas for the serious gourmet. Each of the three bedrooms has a walk in closet. Bedrooms are large and well appointed.

The square footage of this estate is misleading. This compound has some significant area under roof. The combined living square footage per tax records of the two homes is 2995 sf. But the under roof square footage is significantly more. The walkway alone is 12'x72' long (864 sf), the upstairs viewing area is 20'x20' (400 sf). The enclosed garage to the front house is 320 sf, and the detached carport to the back house is 26'x26' (676 sf). The front porch on the back house is 400 sf. This brings the under roof square footage to 4955sf. All data per County tax records and permits.

The property has mature landscaping. Property has two cesspools, two catchments, two homes, two covered garages/carports.

The fastest growing district in Hawaii, enigmatic Puna is often said to be where the Volcano goddess Pele, of Hawaiian legend, is active in her workshop. Kilauea’s ongoing eruption continues to expand Puna's coastline, spilling layer upon layer of lava into the ocean.

Sometimes called "the last Hawaiian frontier," Puna real estate is considered to be the most affordable in the state. Several large subdivisions in the district were originally developed with minimal infrastructure, so those who thrive in rural East Hawaii quickly learn the importance of living in harmony with the land and weather patterns. Many residents even opt for off-grid living. A stop at the Sunday Maku'u Farmers Market is a great way to see first-hand the community commitment to promoting local food and the local economy.

Crossing into Puna from South Hilo, Keaau is the first commercial center you encounter. Both Keaau and agriculturally fertile Kurtistown are accessed from Highway 11. Orchidland Estates and Hawaiian Paradise Park are the first large rural subdivisions along Highway 130, which branches off to the southeast from Highway 11. Most properties in these subdivisions are in rainwater catchment water areas and many are on unpaved roads. 

Puna Makai (makai means “toward the sea”) includes the easternmost point on the Big Island where you will find the Kapoho Kumakahi Lighthouse, the subdivisions of Hawaiian Beaches and Hawaiian Shores, the town of Pahoa and the rugged coastal areas beyond. Pahoa, the eclectic commercial hub of Puna Makai, is a gathering place for rural East Hawaii residents and home to several restaurants, shops, Malama Market and the Pahoa Skatepark. 

Higher in elevation is the town of Mountain View and the subdivisions of Hawaiian Acres, Fern Acres, Fern Forest and Eden Roc. These communities comprise Puna Mauka (mauka means “toward the mountain”). While parts of Kurtistown and Mountain View are agriculturally rich areas where deep soil can be found, the subdivisions to the left of Highway 11 sit atop old lava flows. Residents will tell you that the abundant rainfall of this area is a blessing and a challenge. Maintaining a property here takes dedication--and a good arsenal of lawn-care tools.

Surrounded by lush rainforest filled with native trees and green hapu’u ferns, Volcano, at approximately 4,000 ft above sea level, has a very different ecology and climate than coastal Puna. Temperatures can drop dramatically at night so many homes at this elevation are built with fireplaces or cozy wood-stoves. Often, Volcano homes are vacation escapes for owners who live on the mainland or on urban Oahu. There is a thriving Bed and Breakfast economy here, attracting tourists visiting the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Ohia Estates and Mauna Loa Estates are subdivisions located just across the highway from nearby Volcano Village, where Big Island residents and visitors alike gather at Village restaurants or the Sunday morning Cooper Center Farmers Market.
