A ‘Descendants’ Home – Hilo Plantation Era Listing with Plenty of Charm

If you were inspired to seek out historic Hawaiian homes after seeing the 2011 Academy Award-winning film The Descendants, like I was, you’ll be thrilled with the news I have. For the first time in decades, 040 Halaulani Place in Hilo on the Big Island is available for sale. With elegant ‘sugar plantation era’ charm, this home will embrace you in true Hawaiian style.

The Big Island’s 040 Halaulani Pl. is on the Historic Register & is just minutes from downtown Hilo

A Rare Find

As seen in the film, these homes are well-loved and easily lived in. Most homes of this era and style are found in O’ahu’s toniest neighborhoods; this is a rare find on the Big Island. Built in 1927, when Hilo Town was home to sugar plantations, 040 Halaulani Place holds the elegance of a world past.
