Located less than 10 miles from historic downtown Hilo, Hawaii, this 5.53-acre property offers breathtaking ocean views. Built with easy tropical living in mind, the 3,537 square foot home is enhanced by two lanai areas, one wrapping around most of the second floor and an equal lanai space on the main floor.
The spacious kitchen will be the chef's delight. This space features custom African mahogany and eucalyptus cabinets, Corian countertops, two dishwashers and a cooktop and microwave/oven combination. The kitchen, dining and living area flows perfectly and is flexible enough to entertain large parties and to invite intimate gatherings at home.
There are a total of five (yes 5!) master suites Two of these are upstairs along with the large family/recreational room. The lovely views from this upper floor are truly inspiring!
In addition to the 3,537 square foot plus living area, there is also a 3,584-sf warehouse with four garage doors. This space would make an excellent workshop or can serve as additional storage.
One major benefit for the owner of this property is the 132-panel photovoltaic system (132 panels x 280 watts = 36,980 watts), a state of the art technology system with a transferable 20-year photovoltaic FIT metering contract with Hawaii Electric Light Company (HELCO) providing an income of approximately $1,000/month from 1/1/13 to 12/31/2032.
There are 75 additional PV panels for house use on NET metering, making your electric bill minimal. There is also a third backup PV system that provides for uninterrupted service in case of power failure. In total, the current owner has invested over $500,000 in state-of-the-art PV systems.
The property also has six enclosed plastic catchment tanks for a total of 16,000 gallons and the owners have installed two 1.5-inch pipes in the brand new concrete driveway in preparation for County water connection.
Landscaping and plantings include a banana orchard plus a variety of citrus, rambutan, durian and much more. Tear-drop designed landscaping with electrical and plumbing installed for lighting and sprinkler.
This property is zoned RS-10 which means the owner may be able to secure a license for a Bed & Breakfast. If this is pertinent to your decision to buy, please work with your agent to do all necessary due diligence.
