Nestled into the lush landscape of south Hilo near the Wailuku River, this all-redwood, three-bedroom, two-bath home has been fully renovated. Its ideal location is just minutes from downtown and the bay front’s restaurants and shopping, only two blocks from Hilo Medical Center and Kaiser Permanente, and less than a mile from Rainbow Falls and Boiling Pots. The solid redwood single wall construction home offers a chic treehouse feel, with vaulted ceilings, built-ins, and a focal-point fireplace in the living space. Kitchen details include granite counters, stainless steel appliances, a farmhouse sink, custom tile, a breakfast bar, and a pass-through to the dining area. Wait until you see the unique treatment on the cabinetry throughout the house. The solid wooden cabinets have been reworked to create a distinctive textured finish. A lovely covered lanai area off the entry provides room for additional living and dining. The lanai opens to a lush green backdrop of tropical plantings and is connected to a covered walkway that spans the east edge of the house. Complete with an ample two car garage with automatic doors and an interior fully equipped laundry room. 1408 Waianuenue is situated on 15,000 square fee of land in an established part of Hilo, surrounded by other vintage homes. Hilo Union Elementary, Hilo Intermediate and Hilo High are less than 2 miles away. The nearby Kaumana Springs Wilderness area offers great hiking on the Kaumana Trail.
