This huge custom cedar home is an entertainer's delight! From the covered entry porch you are welcomed into a cozy warm open beam living area. This is the heart of the home where the family can gather around the kitchen at the koa breakfast bar. A real chef's kitchen, it is set up for production and entertaining with a Wolf range and solid maple counters. One owner, an acknowledged chef and food writer, has welcomed students for cooking classes on the enclosed lanai and prepared gourmet food/wine pairing meals for groups. Visible from the living area and enclosed lanai, are views to the surrounding gardens, waterfall and koi pond. To accommodate classes and large groups, the original covered deck of 600 sqft was doubled. Windows replaced screens for protection from the weather and built-ins were added to store dishes or to set up serving areas for food, etc. For the cooking classes an additional sink, dishwasher and a half bath were added. These additions were not permitted but are very functional and well built. The main level also includes a bedroom, a full bath featuring a Toto toilet with heated toilet seat, laundry, large pantry and wine closet. All the necessities! The hallway connects to the garage and beyond to a huge workshop. Over the years the workshop was added onto and is now more than double the size shown on the tax records. Stairs take you to the second floor Master Suite and library/office which could easily be a 3rd bedroom. These spaces are filled with light from large cathedral windows and views to the surrounding forest. It's like being in a tree house, a real "getaway" for privacy, peace and quiet. The huge ensuite bath includes a Toto toilet, walk in granite tiled shower plus separate tub shower and double sink vanity. Something for everyone! Guest House next door (MLS#616305) is available for sale by same owners. Opportunity for an extended family estate in Volcano, one of Hawaii's most desired location
