To live in Waimea within the protective shadow of Puu Hokuula and to reside at 65-1278 LaeLae St. is pure joy and a humble privilege as the current owners have experienced for the last 32 years. Properties such as this are becoming fewer by the day since this home was built in approx.1946. Loved, expanded, curated, and upgraded this home is as charming as one could be, still authentic and true to Island history yet modern and profoundly engaging. This exclusive neighborhood was originally created by Parker Ranch manager Richard Penhallow and this classic Ohia cottage is one of the few remaining historic structures of this type in Waimea. The home has been beautifully maintained over the years. Important to note is the new metal roof and new photo voltaic system w/net metering, 3 upgraded bathrooms, a new kitchen w/a gas fireplace, gardens, and the expansive lawns of a small estate. The wood burning fireplace in the living room w/the original cast iron detailing remains. This classic Ohia log siding home w/original rock walls sits on a 12,876 sqft. lot in a location that in the 40s and 50s was available to only a chosen few. Neighboring homes are reaching multimillion-dollar status. Virgin Redwood paneling throughout the interiors, new travertine flooring, Koa fireplace mantle and bar, stainless steel outdoor kitchen, very private Mauna Kea side covered lanai w/new electric custom Sunestra blinds. If you are looking for a meaningful lifestyle purchase in Waimea w/views of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea, this could be yours w/room to expand. A sunny foyer and established gardens will greet you on your arrival. A historic museum quality Ahu stone will remain on the property.
