Ah, the trades! Sometimes you feel like you can’t live without them. Sometimes you feel like you can’t live with them. But, the reality is that a house that has been well built with attention to site orientation can make all the difference.
Thoughtful construction = better living
The lanai at this home on Kumulani Street (MLS# 602972) on the dry side of Waimea is protected from the trades, and opens towards a beautiful green lawn with ocean views. The large dining room has huge glass sliders that open to the sturdy lanai that has hosted many wonderful gatherings.
From this 4 bed, 2 bath home, you will enjoy views in all directions: ocean, sunset, and the Kohala Mountains. The kitchen has a gas stovetop and newer stainless steel refrigerator and dishwasher.
Views from the kitchen
This home has been well built and lovingly cared for. It has a warm vintage feel with lots of wood, including oak floors, knotty pine vaulted ceilings, and quarter sawn woodwork. The large living room, with huge windows and sliding glass doors, has a view to the ocean.
Beautiful wood interiors
The home is single-story (except for the laundry area) and three of the four bedrooms have been recently renovated. A solar hot water system is already in place.
Sunset from the living room
The Perfect Climate!
The property is terraced with rock walls and has a lovely green lawn, a variety of plants, an area that could be used for vegetable gardening, and a whimsical treehouse.
There’s just enough mist off the trade winds to keep things green, but West enough of the Kohala Mountains to capture warm sunshine most of your days. This home is ideally located between town and the sun-kissed beaches. It is located in a cul-de-sac and fronts a seasonal stream.
Although the owners thought this was their forever home, sometimes life makes you go with Plan B. Perhaps it is meant to be your forever home.
