This is the quintessential Hamakua plantation home in Papaikou in a friendly historic neighborhood. The fantastic location on a cul-de-sac off Mill Road, is walking distance to Mill Beach, a locally known black sand beach with great sea glass finds.
Built in 1938, the home has been renovated a lot, but the plantation era charm remains. Situated on the second floor, the living spaces catch the trade breezes. There are architectural gems all around including artful concrete blocks and the original fir floors that have been painted.
There are three bedrooms and one full bath on the main living floor as well as a beautiful renovated, modern kitchen. Check out the light fixtures hand crafted with copper pipe and the butcher block counters! The range is gas (propane) and both the range and dishwasher are stainless steel. New cabinets, hardware and countertops. The kitchen even has a walk-in pantry, a rare find in older kitchens.
Under the house is ample with laundry area, lockable storage room and a workshop space.
There is an outdoor stone fireplace/grill pit and an outdoor shower. The yard is full of surprises and edible plantings from the raised bed veggie garden in front to the fruit trees in the back. The backyard is fully fenced. Fruit trees include lemon, lime, tangerine, orange, ulu (breadfruit), soursop, star fruit, mangosteen, avocado, banana, jaboticaba, calamansi, coconut, achote and kumquat.
