Exotic in Pure Natives

No one is going to fault anyone for loving exotic plants or growing them in your yard. After all, almost everything grows to extreme size and beauty on the Big Island…which makes what this property has to offer, according to the seller, rather exceptional…all native species. With great care, all exotics (aka, invasive species) were removed from the grounds on both lots to make room for the native plants to thrive. And, boy howdy, have they! If you love the grandeur of the hapuʻu (tree-fern) and the firey lehua blossoms of Hawaii’s towering, “ugly” ʻōhiʻa, then your own yard will be a wilderness wonderland to you.

Oh! Theʻōhiʻa tree is not ugly. In fact, it’s a beautiful, tall, silvery-leafed wonder of nature. The origin story of the “twisted, ugly tree” and its lehua flower are an important part of Hawaiian mythology.

Timely & Timeless

In The Details

full color, full size images are visible in the hd gallery below

Circadian Living

Walls of picture windows say, “Rise and set with the sun, friend. It’s how you’re hardwired.”

Automation

Keypad controlled garage door opener means no more making copies of keys…or losing them.

'tis the Sea-Sun

Winter in Hawaii isn’t normally a Norman Rockwell painting…but here, it can be. 

Koa

Not the campground, the hardwood. It’s expensive so it’s rarely seen in home construction. Thanks to McCandless Ranch, it’s everywhere here.

Playcreage

Play + acreage = playcreage. OK, so, technically, both lots combined is just over ½ an acre. So, not acreage, but still lots o’ play space. 

Plug-n-Play

Think housework is drudgery? Not when you don’t have to lug a vacuum cleaner up and down stairs.

Central Vacuuming

Never again forget to buy vacuum bags. Just order them online from Central Vac Intl.®

Bidets

Brondell® Swash™ & Toto® bidet-enabled washlets means no worries about TP horders.

Top-Shelf Appliances

Bosch® – LG® – Haier® – these brands need no introduction but from small to large appliances, you’ll find them here.

In & out & in

Off the driveway, into the home, down the hall, & back out onto the back lanai, these paving tiles are both beautiful and slip-minimizing.

Gazebo by day

Build on a cement slab in Lot #2 (see below), this gazebo looks fit to hold a gas grill, hot tub…really…you name it.

or night.

Hawaiian summer evenings are reserved to pau hana with friends and family. Do it late into the night, rain or shine.

Future-proofed

At the time of construction, the stairwell was reinforced to support a chair lift should one ever be needed by a resident. 

Extra Space

This shed easily houses 2 riding lawn mowers and more tools and toys than you can shake a stick at, currently.

Recirculation

Recirculated hot water provides almost instant hot water at any distance from the water heater.

Feel Safe

Everyone and everything are guarded by Alert Alarm® & 5-6 internet cameras. Everything is monitored from a smart phone.

70-yr Metal Roof

This well-maintained, metal roof is preferred for PV installation, should you decide to unplug from the grid one day.

Cedar

Rot- & pest-resistant cedar is a most durable softwood, offering excellent noise abatement, insulation, and longevity.

Shou sugi ban

Shou sugi ban makes for stunning dark grain in the wood and a gorgeous contrast to the daylight bursting thru windows.

We Have Fire!

Currently fit with a gas log lighter, this fireplace could be easily converted to a gas fireplace.

20,000 gallons

That is enough water to sustain a typical 4-person home for over 55 days! And nature refills it as often as nightly. 

Sterilight® UV

Fully-potable catchment water thanks to double filtration and UV sterilization by Sterilite®.

It's electric!

Everything except the kitchen stove and hot water heater are electric. Now you’re cooking with gas!

Soft, warm, & lovely

Ceiling accents matter and you will find the gentle, warming hues of wood ceilings accenting just the right amount of this home.

Propane

It burns cleanly, heats air and water faster & cheaper over short bursts than electricity, PLUS, it meets EPA clean air standards.

An ideal foundation

“When we were offered the opportunity to buy this home, and the adjacent parcel, direct from the builder, we knew that we couldn’t turn it down. It was built to the most rigorous CA codes, had ample space, and a Late Modernist style that is trending again (and never truly fell out of fashion.) My wife and I knew then, as we do now, that this location and this home are an idea foundation for our type of living…gracious kama’āina living.

~Gene C., home seller

Both you and your visitors will consider your home the destination of choice with so much space to spread out and virtually backed up to a national park in this undisturbed Big Island location that is filled with history and adventure. Upgrades/updates made by the current home sellers include:

BOGO?

Really stretch your legs. Take long walks without leaving your land. Build a second home. 

Would you like to own double the 12,000+ square feet of land on which this home sits? Say perhaps a lot of the same size that abuts your property? Here’s a bogo that isn’t often, and won’t forever be available to you. As the buyer of this home, you’ll have the first right of refusal to purchase the lot next door for an additional $60K. That’s right, buy one for $649K and get one for $60K…BOGO.

The seller has decided that the second lot will not be sold until the home buyer has a chance to buy it first. Of course, after that, all bets are off but until then it’s yours for little more than a song. It is the twin to the lot on which this home sits at 12,856sf of native plants & trees. It has a small slab poured upon which is built a gazebo large enough to host bbqs, hold a hot tub, or do with whatever you like. 

It’s certainly something to consider if you’re looking to get a little space from The Joneses.
