    Description

    Keaukaha, where sweet rains nourish tropical foliage, where historic fish ponds and miles of accessible oceanfront dominate the landscape and where the sounds of ukuleles and spontaneous hula are as common as the flowers that reflect the vibrant rainbows. This historic home offers architectural drama on the doorsteps to the undisputed seat of Hawaiiana and all that still survives of Old Hawaii. Best described as "tropical elegance", this stunning licensed B&B is looking for a new owner itching to continue it's place in Hilo History. Built in 1934 by a former head engineer for Hawaii County, it's a home with architectural details found in few remaining Hawaii homes. Walking distance to major beach areas, it's easy to see how this property has received great visitor feedback focusing in mostly on ambiance of the old Hawaiian charm! Privately set, the home is best enjoyed from one of two screened lanai areas where breezes and birds are lovely bonuses to your tropical stay. Central to the home is a two-story soaring pitched ceiling with arched doorways and curved banisters forming a grand staircase framing this gracious space that was lovingly trimmed with with thirty foot boards of salt-water treated T&G redwood, Also on this level, a large kitchen is handy to an over-sized dining hall. Two generously sized bedrooms and a bath are tucked under the stair case on the far end of the great room. Six additional bedrooms on the upper level offer flexible accommodations for single travelers or for families requiring multi generational lodging. With an additional kitchen, bedroom and bath, the lower level is currently used as the owners quarters. Situated on almost 3/4 acre, the grounds include a koi pond and numerous tropical plantings. So, if you are looking for a unique opportunity to own a piece of history or expand the hospitality use, this home is certainly a beautiful once in a lifetime opportunity. B& B license conveys.
