Although much has changed over the years, this older home still shows that old plantation charm. The home has been in the family for over 30 years. The owners purchased the home from two grandmothers who grew up there as young girls. The Sellers would love to pass this property along to someone interested in carrying on its rustic roots, while also tapping its full potential and restore the historic home. The neighborhood is conveniently located within walking distance to downtown Hilo and shopping.

Upstairs are 4 BR and 2 BA, a large open kitchen, living room, porch, and a kitchenette. The home has some improvements which needs repair and finishing. Downstairs is currently used as 3 additional Bedrooms, a split Bath, and a kitchenette. This property is showing zoned RM-1 (multi-residential). The many rooms may be useful for a home based business. Owners are currently renting out some of the bedrooms on a month-to-month basis. Owners have replaced much of the termite damaged wood upstairs with new tongue-and-groove boards, to give it much the same feel as the original redwood walls. This cedar wood is just beautiful. There is an original iron steel bathtub in one of the bathrooms upstairs. There are still some old pulley style windows. Downstairs has an original style shower. The porch has been merged into one large kitchen. The Victory Arch now marks where the kitchen wall and a back door use to be. Sold As-Is. Small adjacent vacant land lot is also available for sale with first option to whomever buys the home. Seller may consider short term financing on the land parcel.
