Description

Although much has changed over the years, this charming older home still shows that old plantation charm. The home has been in the family for over 30 years. The owners purchased the home from two grandmothers who grew up there as young girls. They had stories to tell.

Upstairs are 4 BR and 2 BA, large open kitchen, living room, porch and a kitchenette. Downstairs are a rustic 3 BR, 2 half BA and a kitchenette. This property is zoned RM-1 (multi-residential) which provides for medium and high density residential use. Home could be raised to become a recognized duplex. The many rooms may be useful for a home based business. Owners are currently renting out rooms by the month.

Owners have replaced much of the termite damaged wood upstairs with new tongue-and-groove boards, to give it much the same feel as the original redwood walls. This cedar wood is just beautiful. There is an original iron steel bathtub in one of the bathrooms upstairs. There are still some old pulley style windows. Downstairs has an original shower. The porch has been merged into one large kitchen. The Victory Arch now marks where the kitchen wall and back door use to be.

The neighborhood is conveniently located within walking distance to downtown Hilo, shopping, schools, and developing into a blossoming community. A new neighbor behind is building two new homes and is planning beautiful orchids and gardens behind our house. Even the older fixer home next door is under contract in escrow and expected to be cleaned up and remodeled.

The Sellers would love to pass our property along to someone interested in carrying on its rustic roots, while also tapping its full potential as a multi-unit property. Front lot also available for purchase under MLS# 645710.
