77-6607 KUAKINI HIGHWAY, KAILUA - KONA, HI 96740
This classic Kama'aina vintage home, situated off of Kuakini Hwy in the Kuakini Heights of Keauhou, has got some of the most incredible views into Kailua Bay and beyond! Sunsets from here are inspiring! The lot is over quarter of an acre and the home sits towards the rear of the lot, so there is room to expand. The large front lawn has ample room to add vegetable gardens for homegrown freshness!<br><br>This property has been lovingly maintained by long-time Kona residents. The main living areas have vaulted open beam ceilings and big picture windows to display the glorious coastal island surf and sunset views. The kitchen opens to the living space nicely with counter height breakfast bar, wood cabinetry and newer stainless appliances. The side door off the kitchen leads to a small, conveniently fenced patio area, which would be a nice place for a BBQ and a safe place for a pet to hang out. <br> <br>This classic home is double wall construction with wood paneling in the bedrooms and hallway. As a reflection of the era it was built, it still has the really cool amber colored vintage jalousie windows in the bedrooms! Truly retro!! <br><br>The room closest to the living area, which is currently being utilized as an office, could actually be converted back into the bedroom it was initially designed for, however the current owners chose to use the space in this way. A more modern upgrade to note is the primary bathroom, which now has a newer vanity, lighting fixture and vinyl flooring. <br><br>This hwy property does experience some road noise, and power lines are also visible in the view, all of which are factors of our Island life community. <br><br>The location of this property on Kuakini is convenient to Keauhou for shopping and entertainment, the bay for boating and water activities, and Kailua town for more conveniences. The elevation here is pleasant, boasting cooler temps during the heat of the day and at night, and a nice view of the city lights.
