Remarkable and astonishing are just two superlatives used to describe the ocean views from this almost-oceanfront Hilo home. With full 180 degree views of Hilo Bay, the break-wall and the ocean and without the heavy maintenance of an oceanfront home, this property gives you the best of both worlds! Relax in the new hot tub on the back patio with the ocean in full view! The home is tucked at the end of a cul-de-sac across from the ocean, and is fully fenced. The bottom floor hosts a beautiful entryway with stunning ocean views, a large living room, eat-in kitchen, half bathroom and walk-in pantry. The floors are earthy Mexican terracotta tiles. The large kitchen has ample storage including a walk-in pantry. The living room has both a gas fireplace and amazing ocean views! A half bath on the first floor is bright and cheerful. Up the floating, mid-century modern designed stairs is another open room with even more amazing ocean views! The upstairs lanai is covered and fully screened. With built-in benches, this lanai is a favorite spot for watching whales! Upstairs has a beautiful master suite with bedroom, en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet. There are two additional bedrooms, a full guest bathroom and a nice-sized laundry room. The property is beautifully landscaped with dozens of orchids, palms, calamondin tree (citrus), tangerine, fig tree, pineapples, Hibiscus, Bleeding Heart, lilikoi and many other gorgeous plantings. The home was recently renovated with all new interior paint, full fencing around the yard, a brand new hot tub (2017) and upgrades to fixtures. Central vacuum system included. The garage provides two spaces for cars and storage. There is additional parking on the street.
