BACK UP OFFERS ENCOURAGED! Located in Puu Lani Ranch, a gated equestrian and tennis community, this expansive 5-bedroom 3- bathroom home is sited on a 1-acre lot. Puu Lani Ranch is said to have the best weather on the Island and, is centrally located between Kona and Waimea. If you play golf, the Big Island Golf and Country Club is literally across the street from the ranch. The home was recently expanded to add two more bedrooms and full bath. The ranch has a riding arena and trails, tennis courts and a private club house for residents to use for special events. As you approach the home you are greeted with charming curb appeal graced by a large front yard with white picket fencing and a shady Jacaranda tree; the front entrance with double glass doors welcomes you in.
