The checklist for most of my relocating buyers seems to be similar: west-facing ocean view and the indoor/outdoor living features to enjoy it; that Goldilocks “not too wet, not too dry” climate; at least three bedrooms with the main bedroom having an en suite bath; ample garage space. We have just listed a home at 73-1294 Laʻikū Place in the Palisades neighborhood of Kailua Kona that meets these criteria.
Key Features and Charms of 73-1294 Laʻikū Place, Kailua Kona
I almost forgot on the list of “must-have” features: with everyone spending more time at home, a well-designed kitchen is a must. This kitchen has a walk-in pantry in addition to ample cabinet and counter space, and a counter with barstool seating.
Another often mentioned item on the wish list is an open floor plan with high ceilings. The listing also checks that box. Several people could be in the kitchen cooking while not feeling cut off from the family of friends watching the game on tv in the living room or an epic sunset on the lanai. The high ceilings help the space feel bigger than it actually is.
A master bathroom made for luxuriating, with separate tub and shower and a double sink, also features high on many buyersʻ lists.
And finally, the residence is set on a one-third acre lot, beautifully landscaped with mature tropical flowers, palm and fruit trees, and enough lawn to leave room if you wanted to add your own swimming pool.
