Travel back to yesteryear! This wonderfully maintained home shows pride of ownership. From the high ceilings to the built in cabinets and storage, to the Koa and Oak hardwood floors throughout (including under carpeting), this home takes you back in time. The main level features a large living room with a wood burning fireplace, built in storage, custom window treatments, and golf course and distant ocean views. There are 5 bedrooms and 2 full baths on this level. One of these bedrooms has no closet, but does have built in bookshelves and a private entrance to the front lanai; perfect for that home office. Enjoy Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa views from the bedrooms located in the back side of the house. The hall bath has a furo tub, and the ensuite master bath has been recently renovated to feature a dual flush toilet, glass tile in shower, integrated exhaust fan, and recessed lighting. The large eat-in kitchen has newer stainless steel appliances and tons of counter space.

The home sits on a large lot, less than 5 minutes to Waiakea public schools, UH Hilo, Puainako extension, the new Haihai fire station, and Hilo Municipal Golf Course. On the exterior, the driveway was recently repaved and the landscape includes grassed lawn, tropical foliage, orchids, and fruit trees. The large 20’ x 24’ permitted back lanai addition is perfect for entertaining, with 10' high ceilings and dimmable recessed lights. Downstairs is a basement; County records refer to it as a finished basement. The area includes a partially finished workout/rec room, bathroom with standing shower, and laundry area. The basement could use some updating, but there is no dispute you have plenty of space.

Then there is the stuff you don't see. The Sellers installed new copper water piping, a solar water heater, and a number of electrical system updates. Most of the light fixtures in the home have been updated.

This is a home that must be seen!

South Hilo

Hilo town, the hub of the South and North Hilo districts, was once a thriving port for the sugar cane industry. Today it is the Hawaii County Seat and home of the island's major state and federal offices, a modern international airport, Hilo Medical Center, the University of Hawaii-Hilo, and state-of-the-art Imiloa Astronomy Center.

Although Hilo is not an incorporated city, it is the second-largest population center in the state with over 40,000 residents according to the 2000 census. Hilo also has an array of commerce and entertainment offerings--boutiques and galleries, big box stores, restaurants, museums, and several hotels.

The historic Bayfront area, though impacted by major tsunamis in 1946 and 1960, is still a center of economic and cultural activity, including a weekly farmers market, Palace Theatre events and the annual Black & White Night, Merrie Monarch, and Ho'olaule'a festivals.

Embracing the town's reputation as "the rainiest city in America", Hilo residents have a certain pride about East Hawaii's weather and enjoy a different flavor of Hawaii life than their neighbors on the dry west side. The Big Island’s famed greenery, tropical fruits and flowers, trees, ferns, forests, and farms all require reliable rainfall to thrive. Water is so important to life in Hawaii that waiwai (the word for "water", doubled) translates as "assets, valuable, wealth, rich, worth and benefit."

As is true for much of the Big Island, Hilo real estate is a mixed market, with upscale custom homes and fixer-upper "opportunity" properties, condos, vacation residences, private estates and oceanfront property. A knowledgeable Clark Realty agent can guide you to the best Hilo property for your needs.
