A rare opportunity to own this Mid-Century Modern home with a Nihon Kenchiku Flare, located in the sought after Waiakea Homesteads in Upper Hilo. Sleek, clean lines, two sets of Shoji sliding doors and simple asymmetrical shapes shine in this classic, timeless 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom newly updated home. Boasting a brand new metal roof, new gutters, new exterior paint, new interior ceilings showcasing the handsome high open beams, newly remodeled primary bathroom with new tile flooring, light fixtures and shelving. Brilliant hardwoods throughout were just uncovered by removing the 'shag' carpeting & ready for revitalizing. Just new flooring in the recreation room off the kitchen that has a new touch screen cooktop & a brand new refrigerator. The kitchen has a 'pass-through' to the rec-room area for your ease in entertaining. Walk out from the rec-room to the spacious covered lanai and extra-large, partially fenced, level backyard - a perfect place to gather and play with your friends and family. The 2 parking stall vaulted ceiling carport walks into the laundry room/mud-room to find a Furoba wet room complete with shower, sink and water closet -convenient for rinsing off the kids after sporting events, your fur-babies bath time or after a long day's work. This stylish home is significantly nestled back from the street, on over 1/2 of an acre on a serene, no-thru way street, with a permitted detached shop...just think....a potential Ohana or private office? Additionally, an oversized covered lanai with an attached shed and two oversized storage closets. This is a sleek home on a HUGE lot in a great neighborhood. Personally, I just love the friendly neighbors I've met, the location and the abundance of cool breezes! Additionally, Hilo Municipal Golf Course is on the next block, just 5 minutes to downtown Hilo, ample shopping, dozens of restaurants and stunning Hilo Bay. Come make your lasting memories in this sleek, timeless home!
