One of the most popular neighborhoods in lower Puna is Hawaiian Paradise Park, which local residents refer to as HPP. Just a short drive to Hilo, it has the ambience of a quiet rural community but is in close proximity to shopping, dining, and outdoor activities.
15-2048 13th Ave. (MLS# 284532)
New to the market within HPP is this darling three bed, two full bath home. Like many of the properties in HPP it sits on one acre of land. What sets this home apart is that even though it was built recently (in 2007) there are maturing fruit trees adorning the yard, including banana, mango, star fruit, mountain apple, lime and lemon! Another charming feature is the palm tree lined driveway.

Whether relaxing or entertaining, there’s plenty of room on the covered lanai, with an outdoor ceiling fan at the front of the house and a custom wooden gazebo with circular concrete floor in the backyard. There’s also an enclosed two-car garage and ample storage space.

You’ll find the inside to be as lovely as the outside. The great room features a vaulted tongue and groove wood ceiling and there’s solid oak flooring throughout the home, with ceramic tile in the bathrooms.

Gourmet cooks will appreciate this particular kitchen with its ample cabinet space, expansive granite counters, a large island with bar seating, and stainless steel appliances, including a large double-door refrigerator. With 1,472 square feet of living space, there’s enough room for a formal dining area in addition to the bar seating in the kitchen.

An oversized master suite includes a master bath with double sinks and a large walk-in closet. The master bedroom features a bay window and its own entrance to the lanai, and as a bonus the master has air conditioning!
Extras That Make This Property One To Appreciate
The house contains a lot of little extras that new buyers won’t fully appreciate until they actually need them. For instance, the sellers added an exterior plug in for a generator. Hurricane season just got underway this month in Hawaii. If lower Puna were to experience a power outage from a storm or just downed lines from a car accident, you would be able to plug your generator into your home’s electrical system. This is a little thing that means quite a lot should you ever have to deal with a power outage.
There’s also a solar hot water system, which includes whole house UV filtration system, solar powered fans and lights that reduce your overall energy costs, and a 10,000-gallon water catchment system means you don’t have to pay a monthly water bill.
Located at 15-2048 13th Ave., the home is just a few blocks away from the HPP Community Center, where you can partake in a number of weekly activities ranging from mah jong to Zumba exercise classes. The sea cliffs along the bottom of HPP are a popular spot to watch whales in the wintertime or simply ride a bike or walk your dog after work.
