Paradise is found at this unique Kapoho Bay nearly-17 acre oceanfront parcel on Hawaii Big Island. The property includes private naturally-heated saltwater ponds and large lagoons filled with sea life, a stunning main home, and matching guest cottage. Surrounded by historic lava rock walls and swaying coconut palms, it is the quintessential picture of Old Hawaii. Enter through 6ft volcanic rock pillars of the stately front gate to be greeted by a postcard vision of blue water, big sky, and exotic tropical landscape. With total seclusion and the calm waters of a marine sanctuary to explore, the sprawling grounds of this authentic island retreat feel like a personal resort. Near the revered Champagne Ponds, these ponds and lagoons are naturally heated by underground hot springs.
Both the main home and guesthouse have a pod-style post and pier construction, capturing spectacular views over the property's lagoons, open ocean, and morning sunrise.
The ocean view estate offers a total of 8 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, and two half baths. Two of the bathrooms are open-air style and completely private. There are two full kitchens with granite countertops and local hardwood finishes, a bonus kitchenette in one of the guesthouse rooms, plus an outdoor kitchenette in a covered picnic area. Enjoy a weight room, sauna, basketball court, easy kayak launch sites, and snorkeling in your backyard. Store aquatic gear in your bayfront pavilion. The homes are equipped with solar photovoltaic systems, and also connected to public utilities and county water, two sophisticated septic systems, and reverse osmosis water filters. A Multi-Faceted Home, the unique design is a masterpiece of craftsmanship with elegant exposed wood beams throughout the homes. The structures are solidly built and highly functional for their direct waterfront location comprised of over 3,415 sqft of living space and approximately 2,079 sqft of lanai. Tradewinds gently wrap around the homes, engineered with hurricane strapping throughout, all hidden beneath furniture-grade woodworking trim. Redwood and Cedar were used for their strength and longevity, even in Hawaii's climate.
Near the eastern tip of Hawaii Island with miles of tidepools, rare warm springs, abundant sea turtles, and world-renowned diving, the real estate is ideal for even the most discerning buyer's portfolio. If desired, zoning may allow the next owner to create several additional parcels and bay-front homes.
