Welcome to this contemporary Hawaii home on the Hamakua Coast, located just down the hill from prized Kalopa State Park. Enjoy the large open beamed ceilings, great layout, ocean views and breeze, convenient access, and a home that's been well loved and maintained. This well constructed home tucked away from charming Kalopa Rd encompasses over 2,800sqft under roof -- approx. 1,152sqft on the main level, a loft of approx. 576sqft, basement of approx. 499sqft, and 2 car garage of 576sqft. On the main level you'll find a large open kitchen/living/dining & lanai area -- all with views of the ocean, and a hallway leading to the guest bathroom, three bedrooms, one of which is the master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and balcony with ocean views. From the main living area, you can access by stairs -- the loft, the basement and 2 car garage, the front yard, or even the back porch/entry that's used as a practical measure to bring in groceries (you can drive to the back of the home and there's much fewer stairs). The basement has been and is currently used as an art studio, and within also includes a half bath and laundry facilities. Both the downstairs and upstairs have separate entry ways.This is a fantastic elevation along the coast (900-1,000ft), sunny but cooled by trade winds. Average temperatures are in the 70s. The property is just over half an acre with mature landscaping -- lemon, oranges, pomelo, coconut, longhan, pineapple, breadfruit, gardenias, hibiscus, lilies, magnolia, herbs, and nice tropical plants along the edge of the property providing peace and privacy from neighbors. Just a five minute drive to Historic Honokaa w/ restaurants, galleries, shopping, theater, medical clinic, & a short distance to Waipio Valley. Approx. 20 minute drive further to Waimea w/ world class restaurants, hospital, & highly regarded private schools.
