If you think beauty is simplicity, this may be the house and subdivision for you. It's unbelievable out here. Located on lava flows from the 90's, this is a place in Hawaii that is unlike anywhere else. The house is just a new shell, a blank palette waiting for you to finish it. It's very solidly built. There is a wonderful view of the ocean from the kitchen sink and plenty of windows to feel the ocean breeze. Look to the other side and you have unobstructed views of the mountain. Points to ponder: ~ No permits were obtained, so be sure to check on the implications of that and you will need to install solar power, a composting toilet or septic system and a water system. Very inexpensive solutions are available. ~ Reception for cell phones is good and internet fast. ~ Nearest town is Pahoa, 20 minutes away, with a new shopping center, restaurants, health food store and just about everything you need. Hilo is about 45 minutes away with the big box stores. ~ Uncle Robert's Old Hawaii and Kaimu Store are just a few miles away for small items, prepared food and great entertainment. Plus a farmer's market on Saturdays. ~ The neighbors all look out for each other's property on the lava. It's a very safe place! ~ This area is known for lots of sunshine and wind. There are hardly any bugs and the breeze is refreshing. ~ There is a very nice black sand beach about 5 miles away; Kehena Beach is world renown for it's friendly dolphins! ~ The scenic Red Road will take you to Pohoiki and the new black sand beach there with hot ponds, it's about 10 miles from home. ~ House is built up 4 feet to allow plenty of storage underneath. ~ The stairs are attached with screws, so it will be easy to move them and add a deck. ~ Like to look at the stars? Clear skies, no trees or light pollution make this an astronomer's dream at night! This property is not for everyone, but for something simple, different and affordable, this is the place!
