3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home mauka of Hawaiian Paradise Park with a full 1 acre of manicured tropical landscaping. Actual square footage does not match tax records, as garage has been professionally converted into an enclosed 20x22 tiled bonus room with separate entrance and adjacent half bath. Bonus room is perfect for rental, teenagers, mother-in-law quarters, art studio, office, etc. This space is currently permitted as a carport. Home has tile and wood laminate flooring. High open beams and tongue and groove ceilings make the entryway, living room and kitchen areas open and spacious. Kitchen cabinets are custom-made, all-plywood construction with extra deep wall cabinets to fit your nice plates. This home will shine with some TLC. Everything is in working order but some upgrades will turn this home back into a gem. Front and back of home have covered patios for extra usable space to enjoy the outdoors. Outside the grounds contain concrete pathways, lava formations, a ‘volcano’, rock walls, a paved half-court and basketball hoop, and dog kennel. Tropical landscaping is with various fruit trees, over 90 sago palms, several royal palms, bonsai's, and flowers galore. High-end fiberglass water catchment tank is safe and convenient. Home includes a whole-house water filter system. Close to schools, shopping, Hwy. 130, and Hilo, yet is in a quiet, private, and established neighborhood.
