Historic Charm Meets Modern Living in Renovated Pa’aulio Plantation Home
Old plantation charm and modern conveniences come together perfectly in this newly listed Pa’auilo home, MLS #608428. A former sugar plantation manager’s home, this spacious four bedroom, two bath home offers incredible ocean views from nearly every room of the 1,814-square-foot house!
Built in 1905, the house has been completely renovated in the past two years during which time it was transformed from a near tear down to a charming and comfortable home. Doing their best to keep the historic appeal of the home, the owners updated and renovated the house from top to bottom from reinforcing the structural foundation and replacing the roof, to updating the electrical and plumbing systems, to adding crown molding throughout the home, and building a 435-square foot covered lanai (all the better to enjoy those expansive ocean views!). Remodeled to meet current building codes, as you walk through the home, you can tell it was renovated with tender loving care.
With 12-foot vaulted ceilings throughout, the home has a light and airy feel. Almost everything is new from the recessed lighting and ceiling fans to the flooring and windows. It simply is charming. And I love that you can see the ocean whether you are cooking in the kitchen, sitting in the dining room, or relaxing in the great room.
Modern Kitchen and Bathrooms
Cooks in the family will appreciate the kitchen’s eight-burner gas stove, the all new stainless steel appliances, large apron sink, and ample counter space. Both full bathrooms feature large walk-in showers and floor to ceiling porcelain tile, with the master bathroom featuring his and her sinks.
Landscaped with Fruit Trees
Situated on ¾ acre, the property has been landscaped with several types of fruit trees, including coconut palms, banana, papaya, citrus, coffee, and macadamia nut trees.
Quite simply, this is a beautiful house and is ideal for a couple looking to retire to Hawaii or a family looking to enjoy a lovely home with ocean views. Pa‘auilo is minutes from Honoka’a and an easy drive to Hilo and Waimea.
