Historic Plantation home on 4 lots with 4.43 acres of land in Hawaiian Paradise Park.
Architect Raymond Llewellen Morris, born in 1892, designed this and many dozens of other homes in Hilo, no two are alike. This home with its large windows for cross ventilation, the detail seen in the millwork, the hip roof and its wide eaves, is characteristic of the Hawaiian style of architecture which Morris helped to develop. The home was built in 1938 and has been thoughtfully maintained since then.
The home was professionally moved from the Pii Honua area of Hilo in 2001 to this lushly hand-landscaped lot in Hawaiian Paradise Park. The home was brought up to modern-day code with modern comforts. With a deep appreciation for the native Ohia forest, the property was hand-cleared keeping much of the natural terrain intact. The grounds have been planted with bamboo, palms, bromeliads, orchids and more. Four TMKs included: 3-1-5-22-15, 43, 44 and 45 for a total of 4.43 acres.
The garden gazebo is one of a kind; it features a steeple that was reclaimed from an old church in Keaau. Solar PV system is net metered, grid tied so power bills are greatly reduced. Water system has UV filtration. A hot tub is included with the property.
This truly unique property is a treasure to behold!
