This circa 1911-1938 historic home with ocean views was once a train stop for the Hamakua Coast sugar train route also known as the Kawainui Railroad Station. It was likely the train station managers home. In 1938 the station was retired and most of the original structure was demolished except for the section house shown here. Also known by the local community as the Kitagawa house, history is rich in the area of Onomea Bay and the Old Scenic Route where this is located. Now fully and lovingly restored the original charm and grace is visible in every detail. These plantation-era homes are highly sought after by collectors and their available numbers are dwindling. Rarely will there by one already restored and so perfectly and historically specific and ready as this one. It is somewhat like walking into a museum or a playhouse; every detail including the palaka cloth, the checkered table cloth on the dining table, is era-correct. Occasionally and very selectively used as a vacation rental, the tiny house of 782 square feet, 2/1 is as cute, adorable and desirable as one house can be. Sellers are reluctant to sell as you would be too. For the right buyer and with an acceptable offer they are willing to hand over the unusual but very serious care taking of this landmark property to the right buyer. At this price it will not likely last too long on the market but again, the new owners will have to meet the current owners expectations to care for and, malama the property. Located only a short drive to historic Hilo town, the Hilo International Airport is approx. 20-30 minutes away. Directly across the street is the world travelers guide to the best whole foods on the Island; the Whats Shakin Smoothie Stand and Restaurant; see MLS 286290 all owned by the same family who have been stewards of the land in this area of Onomea for 30 years +/-.
