Actions for 53-338 KAPANAIA RD

The "chicken skin" you feel standing on this 13.3 acre ag-zoned land parcel in North Kohala might be due to more than just its wide, unobstructed ocean and Kohala mountain views. The area also has layers of cultural and historical significance dating back to pre-contact Hawai'i.

This private spot is located in historic Halawa, 3 miles past Kapaau town, 5 miles past Hawi. Turn towards the ocean, then pass through a tunnel of arching trees until you reach Kapana'ia Road. The acreage lies just beyond a handful of homes tucked into the trees, and just above the oceanfront parcels.

The Hawaiian chief who was to become Kamehameha the Great spent years of his youth in this area, cultivated taro and vegetables in the gulches, swam and surfed in nearby Kapanaia Bay. Kapanaia Road provides shoreline public access to walk along the coast for miles in both directions. Just above the parcel lies a small Catholic cemetery, once serving the church where Father (soon-to-be-Saint) Damien was parish priest before being called to Molokai. After that came sugar plantations, then cattle grazing...now this special acreage is waiting to become a new owner's peaceful retreat or agricultural haven.

The parcel's upper third is relatively flat for easy building, with the lower two-thirds sloping gently away to perfectly open up the panoramic view. You have-and always will have few neighbors, on large acreages. To the west, the parcel's boundary dips partway into a gulch with seasonal stream.

Off-grid living is possible; on-grid is available. Sellers obtained a County water meter and brought water to the lot through an easement on the neighboring property. Electric poles currently end near the parcel boundary.
