Two charming homes on a fertile acre gem property form a sanctuary located in the heart of Waimea town, only a few level blocks from parks, schools, markets, shops, banks, and Kamuela Post Office.
Main and Ohana Dwellings each have their own water and electric meters, individual septic systems, and dedicated laundries. A total of 4 buildings moved to this site in 2012 as a labor of love were fully restored with new: foundations; roofs; wiring; plumbing; gutters; solar hot water systems; appliances; many new doors, windows and plumbing fixtures. New Shakertown cedar shingle siding on both homes and an outbuilding was treated for added durability.
Each light-filled home shines with refinished hardwood floors, T&G walls/ceilings, and idyllic views of Mauna Kea mountain and the green Kohala hills. Both homes feature large kitchens with butcher block counters, lots of storage, and room for country kitchen tables and chairs.
The 1,296sf front house, built 1940, has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a picturesque back porch off a spacious living area. The separate dining room could easily function as a home office.
The 1,032sf back house, built 1937, has 3 bedrooms, 1 bath, and an inviting front porch.
A shingle-sided 10’x14′ outbuilding with electricity, windows, and glazed door offers the perfect place to create an office, meditation room, or playhouse.
A 1,152sf 2-car garage fronts Kapiolani Rd, providing additional storage space plus a separate work room, home office, or gym.
The driveway, parking spaces in front of the garage, and a parking area for the rear home were all designed with 6″-8″ of 2.5″ base course over geotech fiber to preserve a grass-covered ‘old Waimea’ country aesthetic. Electrical service was trenched underground from the garage mounted meters to each home, alongside a separate waterline trench.
Complete with an entry gate and full perimeter fencing, this pastoral, upcountry dream location is 15min from Kohala Coast beaches
