Situated on a full acre of land, this three-bedroom, 2.5-bath home offers the ideal balance of a close-to-town location and a peaceful rural setting. Despite being just 10 minutes from malls and other shopping, and just 15 minutes from the restaurants and conveniences of downtown Hilo, it is part of a neighborhood with a country atmosphere, at a cool (but not too cool) elevation. The home includes an open-concept living space, bay windows, and vaulted pine ceilings that add to its spacious feel. With its large kitchen and great bones, it is ready for a new owner to lovingly make it better than new. Also only 25 minutes from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, it provides the perfect setting for enjoying the Big Island lifestyle.
