    This is a rare find in the Hawi area: a fine example of a real plantation era home on a secluded acreage. Perfect for a rural old Hawaii lifestyle, the three-bedroom home on 2.8 acres nestled into the curves of the Kohala Ditch speaks "history". The current owners have made many improvements, including updated electrical and plumbing, renovated kitchen with new appliances and counters, added propane and on-demand water heaters, new ceiling fans, a new front porch, and a new hot tub.Planted with banana trees, a dozen citrus and unusual species of giant clumping bamboo, with a brand new chicken coop, the grounds surrounding the home could be a small sustainable farmer's dream. The large trees on the property serve as windbreaks and there are no coqui frogs.An elevation of around 1000' above sea level means neither heating nor air conditioning are required. Ceiling fans and cross ventilation keep you cool in the heat of summer and a new wood burning fireplace keeps you cozy on cool or rainy winter nights.When in the home, you will likely live on the enclosed lanai with its ocean view framed by trees. The authentic style of the plantation era is intact in this home with its 9' ceilings, double hung windows and wood floors throughout. Moved to its current location from Hilo in 1979, it was probably once home to a plantation supervisor or "luna" as the middle bedroom has an original door with a window, once the resident's officeThere is a small cottage perched over the gulch that has also been updated. County tax records show it as a one bed/one bath ohana.The property is about a mile above the town of Hawi with its boutiques, restaurants and community gathering spots, yet feels as if it is in the remote countryside. Walk to town along back roads or just enjoy the serenity of your Hawi home.
