28 Acre Estate Parcel. This rare opportunity to own a piece of "old Hawaii" located on a spectacular section of land on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. Comprehensive planning describes the Ranch at Puakea as a refined, upscale private enclave for a limited few who appreciate the beauty and serenity of their surroundings. Gentle trade winds and a perpetual blue sky combined to create a "June" climate that extends throughout the year. Features include a security gated entrance to the ranch, designed to incorporate lava rock walls, and indigenous trees and Kiawe post fencing that line the drive to this extraordinary oceanfront estate parcel known as Kai Mana "Ocean Reverence". The Ranch itself is broadly diverse and lends itself to an active lifestyle with world class golf courses, white sand beaches, superb restaurants, deep sea fishing and all nearby. The quaint town of Hawi with its rich history as an old sugar mill village is less than a 10 minute drive and offers everyday amenities and even a weekend farmers market. The Ranch at Puakea is isolated by ocean, mountains and agricultural lands and consists of over 290 acres of rolling pasture. The ranch lies between the picturesque Kohala Mountains and the sapphire blue of the Pacific and with its gentle slopes towards the ocean provides numerous estate building sites each offering vast views from this extraordinary oceanfront parcel with nearly 900 feet of waterfront. All estate parcels within the ranch are 20 acres plus providing privacy and space to build your own island paradise.
