Privately tucked back on a circular drive, this classy mountain home shows pride of ownership and quality of construction with fresh exterior paint and newer interior upgrades. The home is cozy but lives large with a spacious living/dining area and kitchen big enough for several cooks. A wood burning stove is the focal point of the living area and windows bring in light and air while offering views to the surrounding forest. Overlooking the living area is a lofted sleeping area or work space plus another bedroom and half bath.
The interior laundry room is conveniently located off the kitchen by the back door. A large covered front deck affords a spot for BBQ, entertaining or just sitting and enjoying the sounds of the birds in the trees. Buyer is being offered first right of refusal on adjacent lot (TMK 3/1-1-8-105), which is included in the price and gives you a total of 40,000 sq ft. to spread out on.
A major addition was added to the house in 2002 to include a Master Bedroom wing of 544 sq ft. with a large Master bedroom/en suite bath, and another bedroom or home office. Below this wing is a huge basement workshop of 544 sq ft. wired for the use of heavy tools with 110V & 220V electric. A real man cave! This addition was finaled in 2019 and is not yet reflected in the County sq ft. The final permits are attached at tool bar and the square footage shown in the MLS reflects this addition.
The home offers so many possibilities, with private work space, indoor/outdoor area to entertain friends and sleeping areas to host visiting family. They definitely don't build them like this anymore with hardwood floors throughout much of the main area, clear fir trim and doors plus birch cabinets and doors. Don't wait as this won't last!

Puna

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.
