Native Hawaiians describe a life energy that flows through all things and humans as “Mana.” It is a powerful force that can be felt in many areas of the Hawaiian Islands if you allow space to receive it. Homes have Mana and 535 Palawiki Street exudes it, given the years of joyful moments and fun memories the original Ohana has enjoyed since they purchased the home in 1960. And now it is time for the Mana to pass to new occupants.
Lovingly Updated & Renovated
From the moment you walk up, you can see and feel the love that has been poured into this home. New exterior paint, lush green lawn, flagstone walkway, new windows, decorative screen doors and the sweet smell of Puakenikeni welcome you home.
This single-level plantation style home is quintessential Kailua, which was renovated in 2019 to optimize future enjoyment.
The Heart of the Home
It is often said that the kitchen is the heart of the home, but with so many beautiful gathering spaces, you may find it hard to choose just one. The open kitchen design means that it is impossible to have too many cooks in the kitchen. New white shaker cabinetry, quartz countertops, propane gas range/oven, stainless steel refrigerator and on-trend stainless steel farmhouse sink make this kitchen enjoyable to occupy. New awning windows and ceiling fan ensure that the breezy trade winds will never have you feeling that it is too hot in the kitchen!
Flexible space is important in this day and age, and the front entry room can fill many needs. Dining room, living room, home office, classroom or playroom, you can make it fit your needs. The beautiful picture window and security screen door create a light-filled room that can be cooled on warm days with the jalousie windows, ceiling fan, and split A/C unit.
Great Space for Entertaining
Holiday gatherings or Pau Hana with your Ohana and friends will be easy in the great room and enclosed lanai! The Coastal Window 4 panel stacking slider allows you to use these rooms as two separate spaces, and the flagstone flooring in the lanai means that wet feet won’t slip.
Rest easy in bedrooms cooled by trade winds through the jalousie windows or split A/C.
Updated plumbing and renovated walk-in showers, vanities, tile flooring and fixtures; these two bathrooms just need your toothbrush.
Enjoy the Pool & Tropical Landscaping
The dream of spending days by the poolside can now come true, as your own paradise awaits just outside the lanai door. Large, recently plastered and tiled pool, with flagstone decking, will bring abundant enjoyment. The thoughtful landscaping choices allow you to enjoy the bounty of tropical foliage, such as Papaya, Bananas, Ti, Torch Ginger, Kalo, Ilima, Pikake, Gardenia, Orchid, Areca & Fan Palms.
The surfboard shower is a such a convenience for those sandy beach days, yard work, or rinsing off after a dip in the pool.
The Enchanted Lake Estates neighborhood boasts wide streets and sidewalks and best of all, it is close to beaches, shopping and all that Kailua Town has to offer.
