What Kind of Estate Would You Create on this Expansive Property in Makila Ranches?

Where would you plan the main house on this property, facing Haleakala or the lights of Lahaina Town? Will your home feature spiral staircases? Exotic hardwood flooring or Italian marble? Volcanic lava stepping stones in the garden? A private outdoor warm shower? A pet pavillion? Maybe a tiny tree house?

Arguably the best lot in Launiupoko, on top of the hill, this generous Makila Plantation property is open for your legacy estate… (MLS 376050 Click Here to View Listings) This property is currently featured on the prestigious Luxury Portfolio International website.

Dramatic ocean views from Moloka’i to Lana’i and over to Kaho’olawe and Haleakala then up the West Maui Mountains await you in this Makila Plantation on the top of Punakea Loop. Fifteen acres are offered in the Ahupua’a Launiupoko, zoned agriculture and divided into two equal parts via a CPR. This means you can build a main house, plus a guest home, barn, garage and more. Or sell off one half if you desire.

Makila Plantation is a private, safe neighborhood within Launiupoko, surrounded by prestigious homes on large lots.  Far from the new bypass, yet easy entry South to the highway with less than 45 minutes to Kahului airport without passing through Lahaina Town. This property is secluded and private, yet a 5 minute golf-card ride to one of the locals’ favorite longboard and stand-up spot: Launiupoko Park. A 10-minute drive North gets you to historic Lahaina Town and restaurants such as Gerard’s and Mala.

All agriculturally zoned properties need a Farm Plan and, with fences in place, this one is ready to go. All of the land lies horizontally in a way that allows mountain and ocean views from every spot on the land. The fifteen acres are all usable and well-maintained with mango, lemon, papaya, banana trees, and other plants.

The prestigious Makila Plantations are connected by biking and hiking trails and is spread out over more than 4,500 acres of land with 2,000 acres designated as conservation. This lot is one of 19 lots, all 15-acres, in Phase I. Served by private water companies.

CPR, Condominium Property Regime, can be costly and time-consuming; this one has the paperwork in place. This was one of the earlier CPRs and the main house is not designated on either lot which leaves the new owner increased flexibility.

Breadfruit – or Ulu – growing on the property. Try breadfruit chips: prepare like you would french fries.

Agriculturally zoned lands benefit from low property tax rates. I live just down the hill in Puamana (to the right in the bottom photo), so don’t hesitate to call for a tour.
