Puakea Bay Ranch is the northernmost gated subdivision on the ocean side along the leeward Kohala Coast as one drives Akoni Pule Highway (Highway 270) to Hawi. In other posts I have blogged about Puakea Bay Ranch as a horse-friendly equestrian community and compared its design guidelines to nearby Kohala Ranch.
There are currently two homes for sale at Puakea Bay Ranch, one of which is horse-ready. And several vacant lots are on the market for those of you who want to build your dream home from scratch. Hereʻs a summary of your options.
Luxury Home with Horse Facilities For Sale at Puakea Bay Ranch
New to the market at Puakea Bay Ranch is the home with the best equestrian facilities in the community. I had this property listed years ago so know a bit of the history. The developer convinced a friend of his to buy four adjacent 10-acre lots and create a luxury equestrian estate to showcase the then-new subdivisionʻs potential. The home was modeled on the Villas at Mauna Kea. The barn and arena straddle the lot lines and back up to the gate to the equestrian trail that rims the subdivision.
The current owners apparently took the 3-bedroom main house down to the studs and gave the 1987 vintage home a much-needed refresh. The guest quarters has two bedrooms and its own two-car garage in addition to the main houseʻs garage: a perfect fit for the automobile enthusiast.
The horse facilities include a six stall barn with a tack room/office, an arena and a round pen. There are fenced paddocks for grazing.
And of course there is a swimming pool to cool off in after your ride, with expansive ocean and Maui views. The current listing at $4,495,000 is only for 20 acres, with the other two lots available separately.
Note: if you donʻt need a guest house or the equestrian facilities there is another Puakea Bay Ranch home for sale on 10 acres, with four bedrooms and five baths, swimming pool and the same view, asking $2,450,000.
Vacant Land for Sale at Puakea Bay Ranch
If neither of the homes on the market fits your needs or taste, there are three vacant lots of 10-acres each available at prices from $459,000 to $549,000.
You do need to be accompanied by an agent to look at these lots; the guard will stop you at the gate. Give me a call if you are on island and want to look at Puakea Bay Ranch properties for sale.
