Elegant hillside home perched above the spectacular Kona/Kohala Coast. This classic, Tuscan-inspired estate sits peacefully on more than 3 acres of lushly landscaped property at an ideal elevation of 1,100 feet, affording unsurpassed panoramic ocean and Kona/Kohala coastline views. This elegant, yet exceptionally comfortable, home captures a bit of Tuscany both in its architectural design and in its hillside location.

An attractive, intricately designed custom copper gate secures the home’s entry and the long, winding drive up to the residence is lined with lush tropical landscaping, including beautifully canopied kukui nut trees and a variety of tropical fruit trees – mango, starfruit and citrus among them.

The great room includes living area, dining nook and kitchen.

Among the many exquisite interior features are 20-foot vaulted ceilings, polished travertine floors, rich walnut wood cabinetry, granite countertops and a dream kitchen with high-end appliances and new Miele built-in coffee making system.
