Perfect Artist's Retreat. If you are looking for a unique HPP property that is unlike many of the more traditional HPP homes, this could be it!

Located near the ocean on paved 7th Ave., the custom built and architecturally designed home offers parquet wood flooring, mahogany cabinetry in the kitchen and bathroom, a brand new stove and refrigerator, a new water heater with timer, and a new water pump.

The single wall construction is made of redwood and cedar, and "breathes." The shoji window covers slide open from the inside to each side of the window, allowing for ample fresh air and sunshine.

The home sits at the back of the property, offering 100% privacy from the road.

The 732 sq ft home is 1 bedroom and 1 bath. The owner has a separate 300 sq ft building set up for sleeping, which features a screened in lanai surrounded by lush jungle... a real treat for overnight guests.

The owner is an artist and has set up the 480 sq ft garage as his artists studio. It could be used for many other applications and has brand new electricity wired throughout. He recently hung reflective material to keep the room cool while he works.

One of the most astonishing features of the property are the grounds. This is a park like setting. A full 1acre of land is thoughtfully planted with producing fruit trees and 150 varieties of exotic palms. Some of the palms were the first to be brought into Hawaii and served as the source of the palm seed bank in Hawaii (including the Bismarck Palm shown in the photos).

Producing Fruit trees include: lychee (2), mango, star apple, avocado (3 varieties), cherry, macadamia nuts, orange, grapefruit, tangerine, limon, loquat, and a variety of coconuts.

A fire pit in the back yard offers views of Mauna Kea on a clear day and is a peaceful respite for sunsets and sunrises.

The fastest growing district in Hawaii, enigmatic Puna is often said to be where the Volcano goddess Pele, of Hawaiian legend, is active in her workshop. Kilauea’s ongoing eruption continues to expand Puna's coastline, spilling layer upon layer of lava into the ocean.

Sometimes called "the last Hawaiian frontier," Puna real estate is considered to be the most affordable in the state. Several large subdivisions in the district were originally developed with minimal infrastructure, so those who thrive in rural East Hawaii quickly learn the importance of living in harmony with the land and weather patterns. Many residents even opt for off-grid living. A stop at the Sunday Maku'u Farmers Market is a great way to see first-hand the community commitment to promoting local food and the local economy.

Crossing into Puna from South Hilo, Keaau is the first commercial center you encounter. Both Keaau and agriculturally fertile Kurtistown are accessed from Highway 11. Orchidland Estates and Hawaiian Paradise Park are the first large rural subdivisions along Highway 130, which branches off to the southeast from Highway 11. Most properties in these subdivisions are in rainwater catchment water areas and many are on unpaved roads. 

Puna Makai (makai means “toward the sea”) includes the easternmost point on the Big Island where you will find the Kapoho Kumakahi Lighthouse, the subdivisions of Hawaiian Beaches and Hawaiian Shores, the town of Pahoa and the rugged coastal areas beyond. Pahoa, the eclectic commercial hub of Puna Makai, is a gathering place for rural East Hawaii residents and home to several restaurants, shops, Malama Market and the Pahoa Skatepark. 

Higher in elevation is the town of Mountain View and the subdivisions of Hawaiian Acres, Fern Acres, Fern Forest and Eden Roc. These communities comprise Puna Mauka (mauka means “toward the mountain”). While parts of Kurtistown and Mountain View are agriculturally rich areas where deep soil can be found, the subdivisions to the left of Highway 11 sit atop old lava flows. Residents will tell you that the abundant rainfall of this area is a blessing and a challenge. Maintaining a property here takes dedication--and a good arsenal of lawn-care tools.

Surrounded by lush rainforest filled with native trees and green hapu’u ferns, Volcano, at approximately 4,000 ft above sea level, has a very different ecology and climate than coastal Puna. Temperatures can drop dramatically at night so many homes at this elevation are built with fireplaces or cozy wood-stoves. Often, Volcano homes are vacation escapes for owners who live on the mainland or on urban Oahu. There is a thriving Bed and Breakfast economy here, attracting tourists visiting the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Ohia Estates and Mauna Loa Estates are subdivisions located just across the highway from nearby Volcano Village, where Big Island residents and visitors alike gather at Village restaurants or the Sunday morning Cooper Center Farmers Market.
