This fully custom designed and built home is in the highly desirable Nob Hill neighborhood of historic Waimea. Built by one of Waimeas most respected builders, the inspiration for the design comes from the American Craftsman style of domestic architecture. Providing a rare component to Waimea real estate, this home was built to exceed the National Association of Green Home Builders Building guidelines and scores highly on the LEED Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Building Rating system. A 4KW photovoltaic system w/net metering keeps electric costs low. Engineered wood flooring throughout compliments the Sienna Peruvian travertine tile work, copper sinks and imported Rohl hardware. Roof flashing and gutters are all copper and there is a huge workshop in addition to the 2-car garage. Full-on views of Mauna Kea from the master and the kitchen, living room and lanai. The look, colors and detailing of this home fits perfectly into the upcountry lifestyle of Waimea. The property is private and quiet w/less than 10 lots on this side street off Spencer Road. The gardens and the foundation have hand laid rockall sourced on the Island, beautifully installed by a master rock wall builder. The surrounding gardens are dense to provide privacy yet allow plenty of light into the home. The Certainteed Presidential Composition shake roof installed in 2005 has a 50-year warranty. Windows are Milgard Fiberglass casement w/stainless steel hardware and Low-E glass. Exterior is cedar, porch and lanai railings are local Ohia wood and the decks are made of Brazilian Ipe'. This home is and surely more so, destined to become a rare and longtime Waimea treasure. Great care was taken by the original owner to ensure that most building materials were sustainable, renewable, and as much as possible recycled. Located 5-10 minutes of downtown Waimea, 2-Presidential Award-winning college preparatory K-12 schools, N. Hawaii Community Hospital and 6 Farmers markets weekly.
