The Sunday edition of West Hawaii Today had a wonderful feature on Plantation Houses from Kohala to Pahala. What comes to mind for most people are not the simple "cane shacks" that line our roads near the towns of Hawi and Kapaau in North Kohala on the Big Island, but something grander, a plantation manager's home.
Here is the finest restored plantation-era home on the market, built for a German engineer who came to work on the Kohala ditch that brought water from the mountains to make sugar cane plantations possible.
OOPS--that is actually the home as it appeared in the 1900's
The house as it appears today:
The current owners have lovingly restored the home, keeping original fir floors, wide baseboards, double-hung windows and those lovely covered porches. The kitchen and baths keep the charm of the era, while offering all modern conveniences.
Best of all, this home is walking distance from the restaurants, galleries, and shops of Hawi!
A hui hou,
