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.
Large windows, high ceilings, re-finished hardwood floors, and built-ins are a few of the unique features of this property

The 10-foot ceilings and newly re-finished hardwood floors are just two of the many elegant finishes in the home (MLS# 268877). The stream behind the home provides a greenscape and ultimate privacy for the backyard.
With four bedrooms, a second living room upstairs, and lots of natural light, this home will charm and embrace you!
