Property Description

HAWAIIANA along “The Walking Trail” at Walua Road! Step back in time. Visit this unique handcrafted Hawaiian home. Today this exceptional home is in search of a new owner who is ready to bring all its best features back to life. It has great “Bones” and is perfectly livable as it stands but has so much untapped potential to offer that we can easily see it becoming a true showplace! With a bit of imagination, one might expand upon the open floor plan. With a bit of cultural sensitivity, one might save the unique architectural features built into the home by the hands of the original owner. You may agree that things like the handmade Soji screens and a sunken tub deserve to be saved. With a bit of hard labor, one might take back more of the ocean view from the trees and undergrowth. How could a person fail to appreciate the unique charm and lush landscaping this property offers? Enter the upper living area through an enclosed courtyard adorned with orchids, ferns, and koi pond with a waterfall fountain. Stroll down walking paths through gardens of mature fruit trees - mango, citrus, papaya - and tropical flora. Enjoy the many lanais and OCEAN views into Kailua Bay. The home is a two-level post and pier wood construction with redwood beams and 12ft ceilings. The main level has an open concept kitchen/living/dining area with lots of windows and screen openings for sunlight and cool breezes. The kitchen boasts a breakfast bar, original made-in-place wood cabinets, lots of pantry space and water filtration system. You’ll find TWO Principal Bedroom Suites, one on either side of the living area and each with its own lanai. The Guest Suite occupies the entire finished portion of the lower level and includes a large lanai and a separate covered outdoor “room” to use as you please. The bath includes an unusual footed tub. The remaining unfinished lower areas make storage. The partially enclosed carport includes washer/dryer. Property is sold AS IS.
