This may be the most spectacular property on the Hamakua Coast, truly something you must see in person to appreciate. Located directly above the famous scenic lookout, this is the only property with a private carriage trail down into the Hawaiian Botanical Garden, with over 4 miles of trails through indigenous botany and direct access to Onomea Bay.This 2+ acre estate is located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, in a safe, private neighborhood, just 6 miles from Hilo. It has functioned as a highly profitable vacation rental at $700-1400/night, and as a venue for retreats and weddings. A perfect opportunity to host your own retreats, or to simply live the luxurious retreat lifestyle.Every part of this home screams custom, from the grand entry door, the hand carved Balinese mural wall, a true chefs kitchen, specialty trim and tile work, Nana Wall retractable glass door and window systems, Brazilian ipe decking, corner windows, the list goes on and on.The original home, completed in 2000, has undergone 2 major renovations in 2014 and 2019, with extensive improvements and structures added.
