Escape to your own private estate nestled in the hillside overlooking Hilo Bay! Inspired by a Japanese castle, this custom home artfully blends tradition with tropical elegance. Every room takes full advantage of the sweeping, panoramic ocean and mountain views stretching from Hilo to Kopoho to Kilauea and to Mauna Kea. The entire home is beautifully adorned with custom, locally-sourced, solid hardwoods, including Koa, mango, Ohia, robusta, and Sugi pine. From the multi-level koi pond, with a rain-fed waterfall, to the custom shoji doors featuring antique Japanese ranma carvings in the master bedroom, each room offers unique and creative features that are as functional as they are beautiful. A detached ohana with separate entrance allows you to share this amazing property, without sacrificing privacy.
Additions to the exterior have created a resort experience just outside your door. The 1.16 acre property is fully fenced, gated, and surrounded by open land to afford the utmost peace and privacy. The grounds include a beautiful sloping manicured lawn, mature tropical landscaping, and fruit trees (lemon, lime, and calamondin) and white pineapples. The heart of the estate lies in the outdoor entertainment area, which boasts a covered outdoor kitchen and lanai, complete with built in BBQ, side-burner, sink, fridge, dishwasher, and custom cabinetry. A gas fire pit is thoughtfully surrounded by artificial grass for ease of use and maintenance. The in-ground, solar-heated pool and spa, complete with water feature and Baja shelf, is surrounded by 1,200 square feet of concrete decking with a cabana for relaxation. Everyone will love the luxurious outdoor shower providing a perfect place to rinse off at the end of the day.
Finally, all of your energy needs are covered with the fully-owned 43-panel (13.9KW) PV system, that includes a Tesla home battery.
This property is truly one-of-a-kind in Hilo and an absolute must-see to truly truly appreciate all it has to offer!
