As the new owner of this beautiful oceanside home, you'll be inspired to spend your mornings on the upstairs lanai watching sunrises and the moon ascend over the rugged and beautiful Puna coastline. The sound of the surf below the cliffs is the home of turtles and seasonal visits from whales in the bay. It's easy to feel connected to nature in your home. The main living area upstairs is accessible from an exterior stairway at the driveway, or through the 2 car garage and downstairs extra living area. Lanais on both the front and ocean sides of the house give the feeling of gracious island living. Enter upstairs through a spacious living room that flows without walls to an also spacious dining area. Natural lighting comes from the many windows on this level. Just beyond this great room is a large kitchen featuring updates that include an updated center island, a breakfast nook next to ocean view windows, new cabinetry, counters and modern wall treatments. A new refrigerator was installed in 2019. Adjacent to the kitchen is the outdoor lanai, suitable for entertaining, or simply reading a book and enjoying quiet contemplation. The master bedroom is quite spacious and has a separate doorway to the front, exterior lanai. The room also enjoys a master bathroom, featuring tiled floors and Koa wood vanity tops. Continue the hallway (past the laundry shoot to downstairs!) passing the newly updated guest bathroom with adjacent bonus room which features a large built-in shower. Together with this room, it's a spacious retreat for honored guests. Downstairs is a large den that can serve as a family room or extra sleeping areas. Two exterior doorways provide guests or family members easy access. There is a large bedroom, bathroom, plus laundry area on this level. A gently curving driveway keeps the view from the street limited through mature landscaped gardens that have rockery lined paths. Come home!
