Rolling green hills. Wide-open blue skies dotted with white puffy clouds. A spacious three-bedroom, one bathroom plantation home set amidst nearly 11 acres of bucolic scenery. Surrounded by beauty yet close to shopping, excellent dining, and fantastic white sand beaches. This is what it means to live in Waimea.
11 acres of beauty (MLS# 296738)
I’m really excited to let my readers know about a newly listed property in Waimea. Located on the green side of Waimea, this classic plantation home is reminiscent of living in old Hawaii – with modern conveniences! Both the kitchen and bathroom of this spacious 1,528-square-foot home have been fully remodeled. Stainless steel appliances, including a large French-door refrigerator, make cooking and entertaining easy.
The well-sized kitchen has lots of natural light and flows seamlessly into the great room, which features an electric fireplace and original hardwood flooring. The renovated bathroom features floor to ceiling tile and ample storage space provided by original built-ins. The laundry room is also well sized and includes a sink, as well as an additional toilet. Other improvements to the property include replacing the roof within the past five years.
The backyard features mature citrus fruit trees. With Waimea’s famously rich soil, the remaining acreage offers abundant opportunities for ranching, farming, or enjoying the wide-open space. Two seasonal streams grace the property as well.
Quintessential Waimea Setting
Waimea is home to several great schools, including my alma mater Hawaii Preparatory Academy. Living here you’ll be in close proximity to grocery stores, restaurants, shops, boutiques, and art galleries that comprise the heart of downtown Waimea.
A great value at $950,000
Waimea has a small town feel and a storied history as a ranching community. Popular community events include the annual July 4th rodeo at Parker Ranch and the annual nighttime Christmas parade. Known for its arts scene, you’ll also find a lot of art galleries and studios here with a wide array of cultural events throughout the year.
