About Leon Glasman
I am native Russian, 23 years in USA, retired microchip engineer. Used to live in MA and decided completely change my life - so I am here. Spent 6 months and tons of money to renovate this house, furnished it with museum quality furniture, brand new kitchen, covered lanai, jacuzzi, private botanical garden (planted over 100 exotic fruit trees), etc.
Next to me on a picture is my first guest - my best friend Victor, guy with whom I spent all my school ages, so, I know him for 55 years. He and his family enjoyed being here and love this place. Big Island has much more to show than any other one - I showed them geothermal ponds, day and night Volcano, observatory, Zoo, Macadamia plantation, Black and Green sand beaches. Like me they are not interested to spend time in a crowd, but be away off noise and enjoy silence of this unique place. We even tried to shoot wild pigs on a backyard, but, probably, we are dud hunters, so, all pigs are still yours.
Leon Glasman purchased this house in 2012
Why Leon Glasman chose Opihihale
The main reason to buy this house was it's location in the woods. House is big, cozy and very light - huge windows around the house make feeling that it is floating in the air. Nice breeze, chilly evenings, no mosquito make living here very enjoyable.
What makes this house unique
Secluded setting, wildlife around, but not too far from civilization if you need something. Close to Volcano and other unique places.
