Given the real-estate adage that location is everything, this Big Island residential home has got it all. Listed by Hilo Brokers on May 19, 2017, the 2.4-acre property occupies an oceanfront perch on the windward side of the island in the shadow of 13,803-foot Mauna Kea (a massive dormant volcano, it’s the state’s highest point).
A luxurious three-bedroom home that was designed by a Beverly Hills architect offers sweeping Pacific Ocean views and airy, light-filled living spaces. Modern touches includes pre-wired speaker and video-security systems, plus a large chef’s kitchen that’s decked out with stainless-steel appliances, granite counters and an island with five-burner Miele gas stove.
A palm-lined driveway leads up to the main property, flanked by carefully landscaped grounds that afford the $1.5-million listing a park-like aspect. Trees include orange, tangerine, lemon, lychee, mango and various other tropical fruit varieties.
Located in Hakalau about 15 miles north of Hilo, one of two main towns on the island (the other being Kona on the west side), this property is notable for its combination of privacy and proximity to modern conveniences like groceries, medical facilities and other lifestyle amenities.
The Big Island’s windward side typically sees more rain and changeable tropical conditions compared to its leeward side, where tourists are drawn to the upscale resorts and golf courses fronting the sun-kissed white-sand beaches.
