This welcoming Kailua Kona cottage exudes character and charm. Ocean views greet you as you enter the interior via a glass-paned front door. Gleaming hardwood floors and open beam lofted ceilings throughout add to the sense of spaciousness. The updated kitchen sits to the left of the front entry, boasting granite counters, stainless appliances & wood cabinetry. It opens to a roomy living area with direct access to an inviting covered lanai. To the left of the living room you will find two bedrooms. The main bedroom offers generous ocean views, mirrored closet doors and an attached bath with a roomy shower. The other bedroom features lovely garden views and an adjacent bathroom with tub/shower combo. The third bedroom (currently used as a home office) sits on the right side of the home, boasting ocean views from two large windows. This room also houses a laundry closet w/ full-sized washer & dryer, plus sink. There is an adjacent second closet for additional storage.
The rear of the home takes full advantage of the magnificent ocean views. In addition to the large covered lanai off the living room, there are two terraced decks and a lovely garden area with tropical plantings and fruit trees. Below the home is a partially enclosed work space that could be used as a gardening shed, workshop or play area.
The property is ideally located just a few minutes drive north to the heart of Kailua Kona or south Keauhou Shopping Center and Keauhou Bay. It is also close to popular Walua Trail which is closed to motor vehicles, thus making it a popular attraction for tranquil outdoor enjoyment.
