This 1938 plantation home has been thoughtfully restored to respect its charm and place in history, updated for modern living featuring open concept living, three bedrooms and two full baths. Partial ocean views can be found in the living/dining area, master bedroom and off the front lanai which is a lovely and private spot for enjoying the views and scenery.
The kitchen has quartz countertops, subway tile back splash, all wood white cabinets, all new stainless-steel appliances, farmhouse sink and vent hood. The breakfast bar includes a generous prep area that opens to the living/dining area.
The master bedroom bath has been fully upgraded with a subway tiled walk-in shower and double sink vanity with marble countertop. The second bath also has a vanity with marble countertop and a bathtub/shower combination with the same subway tile.
The home has all new plumbing and electrical. There is ample storage with a classic camp home basement. A huge bonus is the detached, over-sized double car garage that can be used as a workshop. A separate carport is attached to the home with additional work space.
The home sits on a 0.8404 acre lot (36,607 sq ft) with a mature macadamia nut orchard in the back. The lot is zoned RS-15, Single Family Residential District, requiring 15,000 sq ft lot per single family home so there is potential to subdivide.
