With all the plantation charm of yesteryear, this rarely available Amauulu Rd home is walking distance to downtown Hilo but situated on an extra large 27,540 sf lot. It's a rare combination and an ideal offering for those seeking walkability combined with sustainability. With a brand new roof, new exterior paint, and new interior paint there's not much to do here except spending time exploring downtown or improving upon the already lovely yard! From the quintessential front lanai to the high ceilings and double hung windows this home is sure to please the pickiest of old home lovers. The open living and dining area is breezy, bright and airy with wood laminate floors and ceiling fans. There is even a built-in china hutch in the dining area. The kitchen is set just off the dining area and features a great blend of old and new. One wall is home to original cabinetry with a custom wood countertop and upper cabinetry with glass doors while the other wall features newer cabinetry with laminate counters, new range, and new refrigerator. Just down the hall is a very large master bedroom with direct access to the rear lanai and plenty of closet/storage space. Next to the master bedroom is the large main bath found on the upper level with tub and linen closet. Two smaller, yet good sized, bedrooms can also be found on this level. Accessed by an interior stairwell off the kitchen the lower level offers just as much space as the main level! Although permitted as an unfinished basement, this level features a large additional living area, two more rooms that could be used as additional bedrooms, bathroom with huge walk-in shower, laundry area, and tons of additional nooks and crannies for collectibles. But if that's not enough space there is even a two car carport with a large screened room that's perfect for an exercise area, potting shed, or storage! Don't miss out on this great package at this rarely available address!
