Peaceful 4-Acre Forest Retreat Located in Volcano Glenwood

Quiet, secluded, and private on paved access with underground utilities from the driveway entrance, this is a very unique forest retreat listed at $599,000.

The Main House

From one story up on the main living floor, the clearing around the house (MLS# 252164) sets off the view of the surrounding trees. The many large windows on the lanai frame the forest, which is cleared enough to remain natural, but tended like a woodland garden. The owners use the enclosed lanai as their bedroom, art studio, and fireside retreat.

Further inside are two bedrooms, a kitchen, and a bathroom all clad with tongue and groove ceiling and walls; warm lodging in the cool upland climate near Volcano Village. Downstairs, a private entry apartment serves as additional family space with another bedroom and bathroom, and a kitchenette and a living room. 

Matching “Ohana Cottages”

Matching “Ohana cottages” add two more separate living spaces. Beautifully appointed as complete living quarters, these units are an added bonus. The two cabins are brand new, having been completed in 2011. They have beautiful colored slate floors inside and out.

Each cottage has a half walled loft for hidden storage; the lofts are carpeted with built-in cabinets. Each cottage has a full kitchen with gas stoves, full baths, and on-demand hot water. The lanais are a great spot for sitting and enjoying the beauty of the day. A labor of love for 20+ years is now complete and ready for you.
