Nestled in the verdant forest of Upper Puna, this listing is worth buying for the following main reasons: 1) The house design combines both old and new. Only about 5 years old (construction was completed in 2014), the house has both modern amenities and Old Hawaii features. Modern touches include a walk-in closet, a walk-in pantry, granite tile kitchen countertop, mirrored closet doors, bull-nose wall corners, vinyl case windows, walk-in tile showers,etc.. At the same time, the house has the much-loved features of plantation era-homes. It is built on post-and-pier & has wide steps leading up to the double doors of the main entrance — similar to houses of Old Hawaii. The sliding glass doors in the kitchen and master bedroom that lead to the large enclosed lanai/overlooking the expansive front yard makes one recall plantation living when spending time at one's veranda/lanai made for a gentler, kinder and more relaxed lifestyle. 2) The size of the land offers many opportunities. The house sits on 20 acres of land. Imagine what you can do with all that space. Think organic food gardens and orchards for food self-sufficiency. Or check the additional income stream that a commercial orchid or anthurium farm can bring. And oh, there is a multi-use 24X24 unpermitted but built-to-Code 2-bedroom cabin on the property that can be used as storage or where guests can lodge in privacy. It has vinyl case windows and additional exterior deck spacing on two sides. 3) The property is energy and water self sufficient & Yes, there are no electric and water bills to torment you. Power is provided by an Outback photo-voltaic power system backed up with a generator. Water supply comes from a 10,00000 gallon galvanized steel catchment system w/ a food grade liner.and 4) The 1700 feet elevation of the property is a good hedge against increasingly warming weather caused by climate change.
