OVER 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 available here.
