Ocean views, a large pool, two enormous living/family rooms, plus over 3,400 sq. feet of interior living space are only a few reasons to fall in love with this well-loved & cared for home. Custom built to take advantage of gentle ocean breezes as well as cooling mountain air, this home offers year-round comfort and plenty of space to spread out or create a variety of intimate lounging areas. An architectural feast for the senses, the two story home features two separate living spaces and an abundance of thoughtful features throughout.

The ground floor family room features hardwood floors and a large, custom-built wrap-around monkey-pod bar adjacent to a pool-side dining & BBQ area. The enormous pool (16'x33') was re-plastered & tiled in 2020. On the right side of the family room sits a spacious guest suite with large bedroom, roomy bath, and kitchenette w/ granite counters, refrigerator and small induction cook-top. On the other side of the family room is an expansive bedroom, currently being used as a home office, opening to the covered lanai. There is an attached two car garage & a bonus room with direct access house along with a 600 sq. foot storage area below the home.

The main living area sits on the second floor to take advantage of beautiful ocean and tree-top views. The generously proportioned living room features soaring vaulted ceilings & skylights giving the space a special flow of energy & great Feng Shui. The kitchen has been updated; boasting cherry-wood cabinets, unique granite counters, newer stainless appliances (2021), large walk-in pantry, cork floors & vibrant views. Two bedrooms sit on the main floor. The largest of the two features a huge, double walk-in closet and attached bath w/ soaking tub & separate shower. The spacious second bedroom offers an attached bath w/ large shower.

This property is located close to Keauhou and Hee'ia Bay. Keauhou Shopping Center is near by, offering shops, services & KTA grocery store.
