A Late Modernist-styled Volcano home to treasure for generations.
Ensembles of feathered friends sing you awake every morning better than any alarm clock -and- you can easily join them up in the native ohi’a canopy by simply opening the kitchen windows of this inverted floor plan home.
Legendary singer, Hawaiian native, and frequent guest at this home, Mahi Beamer, said to the home sellers, ‘We’ll call this home Halelehua,’ and wrote the name out on a napkin…a napkin retained as a beloved keepsake to this day.
The distressed koa front door is magnificent. It opens on brick-look paving tiles that run, unbroken, from the front door to the back lanai. In great Hawaiian tradition, you’re invited to leave your shoes at the door and/ or pop on your ‘house slippahs’ and stay a while.
2 beds (and a bath) both upstairs and down are, true to Late Modernist styling, virtual walls of windows. The same can be said of the exterior walls generally. There is precious little to obstruct your view of the treetops and gardens here. Both downstairs bedrooms have bar sinks. (The larger of the 2 is plumbed and powered to install a kitchenette, should you ever need one.)
Connecting the garage to the far end of the covered lanai is an additional flex room with full bath.
The homes’ staircase is slightly wider-than-average was built strong enough to support a stairlift. Good to know.
The living room is cozy but not small with high rough-hewn cedar ceilings and a fireplace plumbed with a gas log starter. There are both formal and casual dining rooms bookending a bright kitchen with tons of pantry space.
