Perfectly located between two County roads on 10.63 private acres of mixed pasture and forest. County zoning allows for subdivision with an application to realize two 5 acre parcels now in progress.

Covered lanai and entry are sheltered from prevailing winds and weather. The great room has views to the treed pasture with the ocean beyond. Beautiful fireplace anchors the living area. Open concept dining room and kitchen are located on the east side of house to take advantage of morning light. The kitchen is an ergonomic design with two sinks, lots of storage in drawers with overhead glass fronted cabinets, as well as a pantry.
Floors are wide plank eucalyptus robusta. Meticulous detailing includes solid mango wood cabinets, bar tops, fireplace mantel, and surround. Old growth Douglas fir elements delineate living, dining, kitchen and hall areas. The mango, along with silk oak and eucalyptus used in the stairway were all locally harvested, milled and fabricated by the builder.
A covered walkway with no level changes leads from the garage to the informal family entry, with built-in coat, hat, shoe cubbies and window seat with storage underneath.
The hall ahead is bright and wide with built in storage behind sliding doors and topped by exceptional mango wood at chest high, making a wonderful place to display special objects.
The hall connects the great room to the stairway and the accessible master en-suite beyond. There is a discreet powder room off the stair well. Upstairs are two bedrooms, a hall closet and a full bath. A generous additional bedroom with full bath with its own entry located next to the garage.
The Hamakua Coast on the Big Island’s windward side is a lush agricultural area where fertile lands stretch from Mauna Kea’s upcountry slopes toward the vast and beautiful Pacific Ocean.
Renowned for its ongoing agricultural renaissance, this part of the Big Island is home to both small family farms and a number of private and commercial agricultural endeavors. Known for its commitment to the concept of sustainability, the community continually seeks to balance growth and progress with an appropriate respect for the heritage of the 'aina, the land.
Numerous small villages, many with roots in the sugar plantations of the last century, dot the coastline. Ahualoa, Honokaa, Waipio, Kalopa, Paauilo, Paauhau--the musical place names sing of their rich histories. People who make the Hamakua Coast their home value connection to family, land and community.
The best way to get a sense of the incredible diversity of the Hamakua district is to spend time “talking story” with folks who live and work here. One of our knowledgeable Clark Realty agents can guide you through the hidden byways of the Hamakua Coast.
