The neighborhood of this Waimea home on the Big Island of Hawaii is located on Waiaka St., a highly desirable area for the drier weather and for the close proximity to Hawaii Preparatory Academy, 20 minutes to the beaches of the Gold Coast w/4-star amenities and, the convenience of Waimea town in general. The neighborhood is full of familys and long-time residents; homes here rarely come up for sale. Current owners have 12 years of ownership. Charming plantation style ranch home of 1581 sqft. on a lot of 10290 sqft. w/3 bedrooms and 2 full baths plus a 2-car garage. The back yard is large and the 210 sqft. shaded lanai looks out over the lawn and on to the private street of Lanikepu which is very quiet and exclusive w/only 8 other homes on the privately maintained street. Walk to HPA in 5 minutes as a student, parent or local resident and use the Olympic sized swimming pool, indoor tennis courts, walk or run on the state of the art athletic track. Other events at HPA include theatre, sports, equestrian activities and music but most importantly easy access if your children attend there and the opportunity to become the home-based hub for your children and all their friends. There is room for expansion should you desire a larger home either going up a story or expand to the back of the lot. As Waimea continues to grow and remains a very attractive place to live and raise a family, this location and the possibilities the home offers makes investment worth consideration. Other residents in the neighborhood include astronomers of the Big Island observatories, teachers and professors for the 2 college preparatory schools in Waimea, local community leaders, medical professionals and more. Very well maintained by the owners, this property should be considered a possible 1-time opportunity to own a home in one of the most sought after areas of Waimea.
