This special Waimea property was originally built 1978 as a one bedroom/one bath home. In 2007 the current owners transformed it into a welcoming four bedroom/three bath home (all permitted). It was remodeled with care and detail; updating the original space & integrating it seamlessly to the new addition. An enormous living room & dining room/kitchen sits at the heart of the home. The living room boasts painted wood vaulted ceilings that mirror similar wood ceilings in the dining room/kitchen. Cleverly designed clerestory windows harmoniously separate the two rooms. Both these rooms open to a long covered lanai, accented with Ohia posts, overlooking lush Waimea trees and foliage. The melody of a babbling creek can be enjoyed from this outdoor living space. A well-designed kitchen opens to the dining room. A breakfast bar integrated into the kitchen island and granite topped built-in buffet in the dining room make these rooms ideal for entertaining. To the left of the living room is a charming suite featuring a spacious bedroom plus adjacent room offering a multitude of potential uses. The completely remodeled spa-like bathroom features an oversized jetted tub and open shower with floor to ceiling tile. Vaulted ceilings, clerestory windows and a custom-built floor to ceiling bathroom door add to the unique charm of the original home. The space has a private entrance & could easily be modified to accommodate a long-term or hosted vacation rental. Three additional bedrooms sit on the other side of the home. The largest features vaulted wood ceilings, walk-in closet & attached bath w/ large tiled shower. The remaining two bedrooms share a full bath. The interior laundry area & an attached 2-car garage sit near by. The entire home boast energy efficient dual-paned vinyl windows. This unique and tastefully updated home is move-in ready & is a short drive to grocery stores, restaurants, banks, services & schools.
