Your fully furnished home situated on 1 acre will take you back to the good old days with modern conveniences. You need to preview the photos and video to truly appreciate the character of this meticulously maintained and remarkable home. This 1940 Hawaiian Craftsman Bungalow was built in Hilo in an affluent neighborhood as a Plantation Manager home. Relocated to Paradise Park in 2001, it then received a major makeover. Re-wired, re-plumbed with a brand-new roof. Designed by renowned architect Raymond Llewellyn Morris, he along with Charles W. Dickey developed an architectural style that can be seen throughout many neighborhoods in Hawaii. Taking the classic Craftsman Bungalow concept, Mr Morris adapted it to fit the climate and lifestyle of Hawaii, developing a unique style we commonly know as Hawaiian style. Several of his homes, notably the Sayers House on Oahu are on the Hawaii Register of Historic Homes. Your home is no different as the craftsmanship and architectural style is reflective of the attention to detail by many of Morris' homes. Large windows throughout the home; high ceilings; double hung windows; built ins; glass front cabinets; meticulously cared for wood floors; hip roof with wide eaves. With a focus on being environmentally friendly, the home comes with a solar hot water heater and a 16-panel photo-voltaic (solar) system which is on net-metering with HELCO keeping your electric bill low reducing your carbon footprint. This commitment continues with your landscaped 1-acre property. Starting with the Norfolk pines lining your driveway to the banyan tree in your front yard to the tropical flora throughout the property, you feel that you live in your own private park. Additional features include an outdoor shower and soaking tub; sitting area with fire pit; gazebo with a reclaimed steeple from a local church and workshop with tons of storage. Amazingly private; amazingly special and amazingly unique
