The quintessential Volcano home, solid cedar surrounded by lovely landscaping and native forest with trails. This spacious cedar home was solidly built from 3 layers of tongue and groove cedar wrapped in plywood. Very solid and insulated! Superior construction features are evident in the cedar walls and open beam ceilings soaring over the formal living, dining area and kitchen. The efficient kitchen features a pass through into the family room. Large windows, skylights and the windows of the enclosed sun room provide ample light and views to the gardens and the adjacent lot beyond. A feast for the eyes.
The Master Bath features a jetted tub for soaking and a gas wall heater to take off the morning chill while another gas heater helps to warm the Family Room area. Two wood burning fireplaces anchor the living area and family room for added warmth and ambience during winter months. Built "old style" with closets and storage, you have room for all your "stuff". A partial hollow tile foundation encloses a small finished basement for work space or storage. More storage is available in the large attached garage. Well maintained over the years the home now awaits a buyer to add their own updating. Some recent improvements include a new roof (2000), new water catchment (2002), new solar hot water panels(2006) and new gutters in February 2019! The bones of this home are amazing and will serve you for many years to come. Don't miss the 375 sf green house in the rear yard for the aspiring gardener or a stroll into the adjacent lot, 21,780 sf (TMK 3/1-9-18-23) included in price.
You will love Volcano as much as I do. A real community with numerous options for staying active. A mecca for scientists, artists and people who enjoy nature and the arts. Don't miss the Farmer's Market at Cooper Center on Sunday morning, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park a few miles away or Volcano Golf Course nearby too.

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.
