Have you ever dreamed of buying a vacant lot and building your dream home? It’s a fun dream. However, following through with the process is not for the faint of heart. Having built a home myself (well…with the help of a contractor), I have personally experienced the joy, confusion, excitement, frustration, and overwhelming abundance of decisions to make….I’m sure I’m missing an emotion in there too.
So, I offer you a solution: purchasing that same dream with most or all of the work being done for you. How? Purchase a property from a developer or home builder. An example? Take a look at 73-1212 Ikenanani St, Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, which is currently being built by Hawaii based developer Blue, White & Gold LLC.
Wainani Estates Lot 10 – slab on grade house with framing in place
This property is located in a community called Wainani Estates. Located just 15 minutes from downtown Kona, this lot provides for coastline and ocean views at a comfortable elevation of around 650 feet. The lot size is a comfortable 15,594 square feet. This gives you decent elbow room without too much land to have to fret about landscaping or maintaining.
Professional Construction & Notable Design Firm
The developer put a lot of thought into the design of the house. They even went as far as hiring the notable design firm Drake Interiors to assist in the overall design concept and interior finish selection. More on the finishes in a future blog.

The home is designed to be a comfortable 3 bed, 2 bath home that takes advantage of the coastline and ocean views. There is no hallway, which maximizes the usable space in the home. You will also find seamless access between the living area and lanai to take advantage of the indoor/outdoor Hawaii lifestyle. The developer also separated the master bedroom from the guest bedrooms, putting them on the opposite side of the house to enhance privacy.
Can You Purchase This Before it is Complete?
Yes. Many developers sell properties as pre-construction sales. While this home is currently in the construction process, the property is available for sale for $749,000.
