Enjoy the quiet of country living in this recently updated home in Discovery Harbour, one of the hidden gems of the Big Island. Located at the southern end of the island, near South Point, Discovery Harbour is about midway between Kailua-Kona and Hilo.
Comfort and Spaciousness Abound
The house boasts a large front lanai and an even larger back lanai. While the main structure measures an impressive 1,698 square feet, the combined covered lanais add another 846 square feet of usable space. Both the interior and the exterior of the home have been recently painted.
Entering the home, you will be impressed with the nine-foot ceilings and the rich look of the recently installed engineered hardwood bamboo flooring in the main living areas. To your right is the great room, with large windows which bring lots of natural light into the room.
Your Own Private Retreat
The split floor plan of the home positions the master suite away from the rest of the living spaces. This provides a welcome oasis where you can unwind. The master bedroom has engineered bamboo flooring, as does the large walk-in master closet. You can step out onto the rear lanai directly from the master suite through its own sliding door—no need to leave your sanctuary if you want to enjoy your morning coffee on the lanai.
Functional as Well as Beautiful
Beside the master suite and the main living area is the mudroom. But this is not just some small mudroom where you can leave your shoes and slippers. This mudroom is large enough to double as an office, a laundry room, or just a place for extra storage. It even includes a closet with hookups for the washer and dryer. And it is all tiled for easy cleanup. Through the mudroom you will find the oversized two-car garage.
At the other end of the house is the guest suite, with two bedrooms and a guest bathroom. Both of these bedrooms have new carpeting and sliding doors providing direct access onto one of the two lanais.
Never a Dull Day
You can take advantage of many outdoor activities nearby. Foremost among these is the Discovery Harbour golf course, which meanders through the neighborhood. The course is owned privately, and memberships are available. Many residents have their own golf carts so that they can get to the links that much faster. Other nearby attractions are South Point and Green Sand Beach, Punalu’u Black Sand Beach, and just a little further, Volcanoes National Park.
