Puakea Bay Ranch 10 Acre Near Oceanfront Estate: Now Available

Finding a quality home in the country, outside of the resorts, with wide open ocean views is not always easy. Rarely is it situated on a sizable lot in a small gated community across the channel facing Maui’s Haleakala. The waiting is over.

Famous architect Lucky Bennett designed this custom home. No expense was spared in materials, fit and finish from copper gutters to limestone flooring. The glazed tile roof has a Polynesian feel that sets the tone as you approach the zen-like courtyard entrance. One enters the great room through large pocketing sliding doors. The view continues through a second even larger set of doors to the open lanai and pool area on towards the Pacific Ocean.

The vaulted ceilings and coves throughout the home are trimmed in mahogany. The hardwood floors are marabou, and the fireplace mantle is solid koa.

This home is great for entertaining, with a full outdoor kitchen including a large Viking Grill. The chef’s kitchen inside boasts 2 sinks, 3 dishwashers, Miele induction cooktop along with Viking oven, and microwave.

In addition to the walk-in pantry, there is a separate wine room for your special vintages. Enjoy beautiful ocean views, whether dining indoors or al fresco.

Three of the four ensuite bedrooms are outfitted with private outdoor shower gardens surrounded by lava rock walls. More lava rock walls and tropical landscaping add beauty throughout the property. Gas tiki torches accent the pool area.

Large Master suite has 2 large walk-in closets with built-in cabinetry.

Exquisite stonework in Master Bath, separate vanities, walk-in shower, and larger shower garden create an oasis.

The home is outfitted with fully owned solar panels, multiple split zoned AC units, and 2 solar water heaters. It is supplied with county water and underground power and cable.

An added bonus is the oversized barn, built in 2014, that currently houses a huge John Deere tractor. It could be transformed into a horse barn, man barn, she shed, or whatever suits your needs.

Owners at Puakea Bay Ranch are drawn to the spectacular year-round sunsets over the ocean. On clear days you can see Kahoolawe and Lanai in the distance. In winter, the Bay is visited by migrating humpback whales where you may see newborn calves.

This large yet comfortable home is located near the waterfront in Puakea Bay Ranch. It is just outside the small town of Hawi in North Kohala District of Hawaii Island. The development was formerly part of the famous Parker Ranch and consists of 40 ten acre parcels. It still has a paniolo vibe with cows and horses grazing in pastures. Less than 2 miles up the coast is the birthplace of Kamehameha the Great, who united the Hawaiian Islands. There are historic sites throughout this area and reminds one of the times from before the sugar plantation era.

Entrance to Puakea Bay Ranch

With just 19 homes built in the ranch, only 2 of which are near or on the water, they do not come on the market often. The last home sale was 8/21/18 for $3.2M. There is currently one other home in escrow. See the listing: 56-2878 Puakea Bay Dr

The buyer for this home is seeking elegance and privacy in an upscale yet rural neighborhood. From Hawi, it is 50 minutes to the Kona International airport, 30 minutes to Waimea town and 25 minutes to the sandy beaches of the Kohala Coast. If this sounds like what you’ve been searching for, please reach out to schedule a tour.
