ONE SQUARE MILE partly within the Hamakua Forest Reserve, this property
has views of the mountain rims of Waipio Valley, the ocean and the
island of Maui.
The 660.80 ac. parcel offers potential for a very
private, very large up-country ranch estate or family compound; the
AG-40 zoning could allow for multiple dwellings. Outside of a
single-residence scenario, deservedly this lands highest and best use
is as an agricultural, ranching operation or a community-oriented
retreat facility. This type of continued usage would honor the
historical (and future) use of the land which was sugar and cattle,
following the reign of King Lunalilo.
There is an approved water variance for 6 lots; seasonal rainfall
provides ample water for an efficient catchment system, common in the
area. Currently access is through the Kapulena Orchards subdivision and
along the old tree-lined county road of Mud Lane. With modest
improvements from the Waimea side of Mud Lane, access could be greatly
improved allowing for a commute time to Waimea of approx. 20 min. and
the resorts of the Gold Coast within approx. 40 min. The Waimea Golf
and Country Club is located very near to the property.
In some areas the land is heavily treed; in others wide open fields of
cane grass, Hapu’u ferns, wild orchids, Kahili and Micronesian ginger
abound. Many varieties of trees are present including rain-forest-tall
specimens of Eucalyptus, Lama, Kukui, Ohia and Koa.
Within the dense forest reserve which borders two sides of the
property, there are undoubtedly birds, wildlife and native botanical
species gone thankfully undisturbed, protected by the low density
activity of the area. One has to ask the proverbial question: if a tree
falls in the forest and nobody hears it...., that is how quiet and
preserved the area remains today.
Neighboring large parcels include Bishop Estate Lands and State Forest
Reserves, further augmenting the impenetrable level of privacy
