HILO, HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) - In celebration of Merrie Monarch, today's Sunrise Open House will feature single family homes in the Hilo area on the Island of Hawaii. All three homes have been listed in the last week.

We start with a 3 bedroom, 1 bath home in Kurtistown, about 20 minutes outside Hilo, heading toward Volcano. This home has a little more than 1100 square feet of living space. Built in 1950, the listing describes this home as a "handyman's special" ... so it needs some work. The lot is more than 32,000 square feet or about 3/4 of an acre, and is zoned for possible subdivision. This Kurtistown 3 bedroom is offered at $235,000.

Next, we go north of Hilo along Hawaii Belt Road, just past the 7 mile marker to Papaikou. This is also an older home, built in 1952. It has 3 bedrooms, 1 bath, and almost 1400 square feet of living space. This home sits on 3/4s of an acre and borders Alaemai Stream. It has lots of oversized windows to let the light in, hardwood floors throughout with tile in the kitchen and bath. There's also an 1100 square foot unfinished basement. Papaikou 3 bedroom listed at $375,000.

Finally, a 5 bedroom, 5 bath home on 3 pastured acres. This property is in Hilo, about 20 minutes from downtown. The main home has 3 bedrooms and 3 baths... then there are 2 large studio apartments with open beam ceilings. The home was built in 1986 and has almost 2200 square feet of interior living space.
