55 Luana Wy

This one just feels good! Strategically built to capture breezes, sun and moon rises and distant ocean views that completely entertain, it's a home that regally surveys the beautifully terraced grounds below. But like fine wine, the meticulously maintained home just keeps getting better with time. With over-sized fixed pane windows and gleaming Douglas Fir floors thru-out much of the upper level, the home has, over the past year, undergone complete kitchen and bathroom renovations. The kitchen now sports trendy white cabinetry with a wall of pantry cabinets, soft close drawers and quartz counters. This unexpectedly large space has also been updated with Kenmore Pro stainless appliances including a 5-burner gas stove, French door refrigerator, a stainless dishwasher and counter space that will make any chef’s heart sing! Just off the kitchen is a handy dining room that enjoys the same lovely views as the entire ocean side of the home. The owners speak lovingly of the views from their sofa as giving the feeling of complete privacy like living in a tree home. Both upper level bedrooms feature double closets, new ceiling fans and offer unusually generous spaces. They enjoy full views of the beautifully terraced lawn as the sun dances thru the tropical plantings. No curtains necessary! The lower level features a lovely sitting area and a bonus space. These rooms could easily serve as 2 additional bedrooms. Each has easy access to an original plantation style bath. Concrete floors in the lower level makes the entire space available for great storage and additional uses. The Vivant leased PV system and solar hot water keeps power bills to a minimum (lease is $46 plus about $26 per mo for HELCO). All electric and plumbing is current and in great condition. All-in-all, it’s a tasteful in-town option with all the benefits of days gone by improved by modern upgrades that will make make even the pickiest homeowner proud!
