Almost-oceanfront lot in historic Halawa, North Kohala, this serene 38 acres is zoned for agriculture. The adjoining 24-acre lot is also available (MLS 270142), providing an option to own over 60 acres bounded by gulches for privacy and protection of ocean and Maui views.

A third parcel of almost 60 acres adjoins this lot on the mauka side for the buyer seeking a larger ranch or family compound.

Halelua Gulch runs through the western boundary of this parcel. Along the makai (ocean) side is a narrow strip of a single oceanfront parcel zoned conservation. Deeded easements for shoreline public access mean you can walk for miles along the oceanfront.

Currently used for grazing, the deep soil and right amounts of sunshine and rainfall make the parcel suitable for an organic, sustainable lifestyle.

Seller has created modest CC&Rs intended to protect the pristine character, agricultural potential, and ocean views for buyers of these parcels. The lots share access and utility easements, but there are no HOA dues. Easements are in place for County water and HELCO electric, although many neighbors have chosen solar or wind power.

The neighboring parcel to the southeast has a special permit allowing for construction of the Hawaii Insight Meditation Center on 15 acres of its 80 acres, with a commitment to agriculture on the rest.

The young Kamehameha the Great spent happy years in this area, tending taro patches and surfing at nearby Kapana'ia Bay. Throughout his unification of the Hawai'ian Islands, he always returned here to rest and farm. Later as Sugar became King, the plantations brought prosperity to the area.

Today the small towns of Hawi and Kapaau are vibrant with shops, galleries and restaurants, and a local community dedicated to maintaining its rich cultural heritage and rural small-town feel.
