Virtual Tour
Refinished 1-Bedroom House In Sunrise Ridge

Not ready for an apartment? Looking to downsize without compromise then look no further than this in town, country cottage! Located at the end of Ainalako Road (long regarded as one of Hilo's best kept secrets), this special space is a gardener's delight, offering peace and quiet along with no thru traffic! Beside a superior location, this sweet enclave also boasts native plantings, cool breezes and fencing! It also lives much larger than you'd expect! With deep soil and a seasonal stream, the home is currently configured as a 1-2 bedroom dwelling that could be easily reconfigured to create a 3 bedroom space. The central kitchen opens to an inviting sitting area with a fixed wall of gridded windows (reclaimed and refinished with love), which not only make the space bright and airy but allows a full view of the gorgeous grounds...no need for curtains here! An adjacent room could be used for your home office or converted to bedroom 3. The bath has been recently updated and is much larger than expected. The attached garage is accessed from the front lanai which happens to provide the a perfect spot for morning coffee or enjoying the vibrant afternoon colors with your favorite glass of wine. The oversized garage provides vertical storage as well and space for your hobbies or workshop. Up the stairs is a multi use accessory area that could even be outfitted as additional living space. Be sure to look at the photos and the virtual tour and you'll get a sense of what decades of love of place have created. But warning, be prepared to be wowed!
