High above historic Waimea village this special Kama'aina estate crowns the coveted Hoku’ula heights. This custom designed, 4 Bedroom, 4.5 Bath descendant family home offers the refinement, privacy and walkability that you'll relish. The views are incomparable, with the verdant pastures of iconic Hoku’ula lapping up against the back of the property. The great house overlooks the saddle lands of Mauna Kea, majestic Mauna Loa and even the sunset panorama of ancient Hualalai. Far below, the brilliant blue of the Kohala Coast beckons families to play in the surf and greet the whales! The ranch family gourmet kitchen boasts excellent appliances (SubZero and Viking). The homey living room and fireplace are perfect for laughter and stories, and three lovely bedroom suites lie near at hand. The living room spills onto a broad lanai where you will be enchanted by the broad sweep of the Waimea saddle lands. The lower-level family room (with separate entrance) is cozy and shares this floor with the 4th ensuite bedroom. For rainy days, there is even a giant loft with a billiard table and bonus rumpus room perfect for a kids playroom, office, etc.
Teak floors and doors, as well as built in koa shelving mark this as a distinctive Old Hawaii home. Mature landscaping includes old growth ohia, citrus, fragrant puakeinikini, gardenias, agapanthus, fragrant ginger and even a classic old Hawaii monstera bed. A whimsical playhouse and sport court enhance an already rare, unique and exceptional property
