This 5-acre lot in the Meadows II section of Kohala Ranch has what buyers seek: views, privacy, and easy terrain for building your home.
Depending on which direction you turn your gaze, enjoy sweeping ocean and coastline views; views of Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa and Hualalai volcanoes; and the green hills of Kohala Mountain. Lot 708 is a rim lot, meaning it runs along the boundary of the Kohala Ranch community with only large ranch acreage above. Looking up the hill, you can see cattle grazing and the water tower of Kahua Ranch. Looking down, expect beautiful sunsets year round.
On the northeast side of this lot the terrain is hilly, providing natural protection from the trade winds. On the south side of the lot is a gulch, giving separation from the nearest neighbors and view plane protection. A broad relatively flat area just above the middle of the lot is where the sellers had picked out as the best building site...but with 5 acres there are several possibilities.
The lot is at approximately 1800 feet elevation, a perfect altitude to save on air conditioning in the hot summer months, and enjoy putting on a hoodie for cooler nights when winter comes and you want to dine outside and enjoy the starry skies.
Kohala Ranch is a gated community with CC&Rs and design guidelines for consistency of the ranch aesthetic. The Ranch is located just north of the Kohala Coast resorts with their beaches, golf, restaurants and entertainment options, and shares the sunny year-round climate. Enjoy Saturday farmers markets in either Waimea (Kamuela) or Hawi town...approximately equidistant from your home. The two towns also have groceries, restaurants, medical services, restaurants, and art galleries.
If you do not plan to build immediately, the vacant lot can be fenced for grazing to save on property taxes. And of course then it is ready for your own horses, pet sheep, or just to contain your canine companions once you move in.
