Better Than New in Keaau

Better than new! A long driveway leads you to a home that has been so meticulously maintained and improved that it’s unquestionably better than new constructions.

As you enter the great room with open-beam ceilings, your eyes are drawn to the rear slider leading to a sun deck and beautiful gazebo built over your ferro cement 9,000gal catchment (no tank to look at). Nestled among mature landscaping, the home and outdoor features are thoughtfully positioned to create your own private retreat. Features such as an outdoor soaking tub, shower, stepping stones, rock garden and nature walk are bonuses you’ll love.

Next to the great room is a new upscale kitchen crafted by Jay’s Cabinets. Beautiful quartz counters, almost new and barely used appliances, pot drawers and custom additions such as a spice storage pull-out, pan separators in one of two pantry cabinets, and built-in cookbook storage are just a few of the custom features never found in a “stock” kitchen! Just next to the adjacent dining space is a sun room or your future office, with lots of windows where you’ll be able to enjoy the rear landscaping view.

Every inch of this home has been re-done and improved by a picky seller. Even reconfiguring closet space by removing brackets to improve storage is sure to impress. Both the common bath and the primary bath have been updated. New light fixtures, new flooring, new fans…you name it, it’s all updated beyond today’s standards! Back outside, a well-built extra high 2 car carport has been added. Besides the attached enclosed carport complete with garage door, this space is perfect for all your extra toys!

An additional garden shed with ramp keeps all the outdoor tools neat and tidy. Situated behind a custom rock wall with wood accent, the home is secure and has great curb appeal. With 14 panels of net metered PV and solar hot water, there’s just not much that has been overlooked in this well thought-out home! Like I said, better than new!
