Tucked away in a lush rainforest setting just minutes from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, this adorable home sits on nearly a half acre of land and features a custom-built detached cabin!
The main home features vaulted ceilings and a spacious living area with a wood-burning stove, open kitchen, wood cabinets, granite countertops, and an extra bar top seating area. In addition to the bedroom and bath, there is a dedicated laundry room that could be used as an extra rest area or computer room.
Behind the home, you'll find a custom-built post-on-pier detached cabin with a loft and expansive deck. Host guests, work from home, or turn this flex space into the art studio of your dreams!
Overlooking a forest of native Hapuu ferns and Ohia trees, the cabin's deck area is a perfect spot to enjoy your favorite beverage while witnessing native birds feasting on blossoms on those cool, foggy Volcano mornings.
The property is fully-fenced and has a beautifully built storage shed with a poultry or livestock/dog run adjacent to it.
An 5,000 gallon rainwater collection system services the home, along with an on-demand hot water system. A power-port for large generators (perfect for backup power) is located in the carport.
Mauna Loa estates sits at a cool approximately 3,000 foot elevation, 30-40 minutes by vehicle from Hilo's shopping and university districts and across the street from historic Volcano Village, with its charming markets, restaurants and art galleries.
The entrance to world-famous Volcanoes National Park is just three and a half miles to the south.
*Per the Seller, the rear cabin was permitted as a bedroom, but the property's infrastructure should be able to accommodate an extra bathroom (septic records attached in MLS and avaiable for review upon request - Buyer's to perform their own due diligence as to compliance and feasibility). By appointment only.
