Have you always wanted to sip your morning coffee or tea outside on your over-sized lanai overlooking the pool and enjoy amazing ocean views?
Are you looking for a truly move-in ready home with more upgrades than can be described? Well look no further you’ve found it!
This property located in the desirable Sunset neighborhood just outside of downtown Kailua was featured in the August 2011 edition of the West Hawaii Today, At Home Magazine. The home is the epitome of pride of ownership, whereby the owners, Mike and Carol, took this foreclosure fixer and transformed it into a model home.
When the owners purchased the home, by the way sight unseen, it was dated, cramped, painted stark white inside and out, the guest bathroom had a brown tub and the swimming pool was shades of green and black.
Now you wouldn’t recognize it’s the same house, which was the case at our recent broker’s open house. Many of the agents had seen this property when it was first sold to Mike and Carol, and couldn’t believe how it looks today. So many comments, “this can’t be the same house”.
There are so many upgrades to the home, an addendum was attached to my listing, but here are just a few: bamboo flooring, cherry wood cabinets in both the kitchen and bathrooms, kitchen and island granite counter tops, stainless steel kitchen appliances, master bathroom large travertine walk-in shower with dual rainwater heads, over-sized 2-car garage, swimming pool, designer interior paint, fruit trees, close to Kailua town for shopping, beaches and restaurants, oh, and have a I mentioned the ocean and sunset views.
A couple of interesting tidbits about Mike and Carol, they are collectors of antiques, including stained-glass windows from the 1800s and are also vintage car buffs. Carol has a 1962 Volkswagen Ragtop and Mike drives his 1955 two-door Ford Ranch Wagon with a 351 Windsor engine and vintage Edelbrock valve covers.
Before they leave Hawaii to relocate back to the mainland, they have one last restoration project, Mike’s 1962 Volkswagen single cab truck.
If you currently live on the Big Island or you’re on the mainland thinking about owning in our quaint Kailua town, you definitely have to take a look at this one, you will not be disappointed.
