Parties or Privacy? Kailua-Kona Home with Desirable List of Features Offers Both
Are you looking for a home where you can let your hair down and put your feet up? Whether you’re an extrovert or an introvert, this new listing offers plenty of interior and exterior space for both entertaining and getting away from it all.
A rear lanai with both covered and open space offers plenty of room for entertaining or a secluded moment (MLS# 600876)
Located in upper Ali’i Heights, a subdivision of 1/3 to 1/2-acre parcels in Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii, this single-level home with no stairs offers a desirable list of features. Its location just off La’aloa Avenue gives easy access to the Hawaii Belt Road (Highway 11) and also to Ali’i Drive, which runs along the ocean’s edge.
The secluded design of the landscaping offers privacy as well as multiple fruit bearing trees and edible plants. Almost anything grows in Hawaii.
With over 900 square feet of lanai space and a concrete platform wired for a spa tub, there’s an abundance of room for outdoor relaxation and entertaining. And if you want to retreat to the inside, a large great room and generous kitchen await.
