Pepeekeo Pt. Subdivision is one of the most desirable gated communities north of Hilo. The subdivision offers a buyer smaller acreage for agriculture, great views, nice neighbors and many custom built homes. Custom designed and built in 2007, this nearly oceanfront home offers amazing ocean and mountain views from many vantage points. The welcoming Porte Cochere entrance leads you to the covered front porch and deck surrounding the main living area. With views to both the coastline and the mountains, these decks are accessible from both the living area and the kitchen for indoor/outdoor living. Private balconies off both upstairs bedrooms also afford views of ocean, coastline and mountains.
The unique floor plan features a guest bedroom and bath on the main level with the Master Bedroom and a second spare bedroom on the second level. A spacious Master Suite includes a large walk in closet, bath with a double sink vanity plus a covered private balcony. A comfortable sitting area in the Master overlooks the main living area. This allows for extra natural light and airflow to the Master through the Plantation shutters which screen this area off from the living area. A spare bedroom on this level includes a half bath and another private balcony to enjoy both ocean and mountain views. This room would make a great nursery for a young child or space for a home office?
All surfaces are easy care with solid surface counters and bamboo laminate or tile floors throughout. The kitchen features two large pantry closets, ample cabinets, a center work island and a built in table for eating.
The attached garage, laundry room and half bath are conveniently accessible off covered deck by living area. Too many extras to list. Have your agent schedule a visit soon as this home is priced to sell!
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.
