One of Hilo’s truly special homes is on the market for the first time. Thoughtful custom design and exquisite craftsmanship shine from the moment you arrive, with beautiful ‘Ohi‘a posts anchoring the carport and threading throughout the house, from the clerestory entry to the welcoming great-room, all the way to the built-in gazebo that extends the back lanai.
Just minutes from downtown Hilo, the hospital, and Saddle Road, everything is close, and the Lower Kaumana setting offers ideal elevation with town and ocean views from the second story master. Lush greenery and selective territorial and ocean views abound from the main floor and back lanai. The home's eastern orientation welcomes natural light and catches every sunrise, the trade winds, and Hilo’s epic moonrises.
Lovingly built and maintained, quality is evident throughout: stainless steel appliances, jetted tub, gas fireplace, island hardwood floors, slab granite counters, and a gorgeous eucalyptus staircase that accentuates this home’s unmistakable natural flow.
The main floor features 2 bedrooms, office/den, bonus room, and gourmet kitchen that opens into the integrated living and dining space.
The upper floor master suite includes large walk-in closet, 5-piece master bath, and upper lanai with commanding views. A gas fireplace with gorgeous custom mantle and open beam cupola ceiling transform the nearly 500 sf suite into a genuine retreat perfect for breezy summer days and cool winter nights.
The quiet neighborhood offers county water and Spectrum for cable/wifi. Front and back yards feature a bonus storage unit, efficient garden beds, and mature fruit trees.
Perhaps the most stunning feature of this unforgettable home is the beautiful custom stained-glass celebrating ‘Ohi‘alehua and our native forests, serving as a memorable accent to an artist-quality craftsman entry door. Each time you enter this exquisite home, you’ll feel the quality and elegance of this special place.

Sitting above a beautiful cove, this architecturally designed home is the ultimate in seclusion and privacy and was created to perfectly blend into the Hawaii lifestyle using materials that will endure the test of time in a timeless, clean style.
