    PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

    HERE IS YOUR CHANCE TO OWN A PIECE OF WAIMEA’S HISTORY. This Heritage Property has been loved by four generations. The current owner’s grandparents purchased it, along with several other parcels in 1942. They lived on Oahu at the time but soon built a small – view-inspired home on the property which was one of the first buildings on what is now known as Nob Hill. This small home became known as “The Cottage”. It sits on its original site on this historical property which today consists of 1.793 prime acres in Waimea’s premier neighborhood. “The Cottage” was a cool refuge and an escape from the heat of Oahu and the grandparents planted much of the vegetation which now surrounds the property. At the time of construction of “The Cottage”, the builder used lava rock and split ohia wood which became a signature type of construction on the hill. Today, there are only three homes left with this type of construction.
    Their son – as a teenager – began spending summers in “The Cottage”. It was during this time that he was exposed to ranching and the Waimea lifestyle. After graduation from college, he returned to Waimea and began working for Parker Ranch. He and his wife had three boys – all of whom grew up on the property in small town Waimea – where it was not infrequent to see cowboys riding their horses along Kawaihae Rd. as they commuted between home and work.
    “The Big House” was built in 1997 as a retirement home. “The Cottage” became a vacation home for the now-adult sons and their families. There are spectacular views of Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, Hualalai, and the ocean from most vantage points on the property. The property has maintained its’ rural charm and many days and nights you can hear the sounds of cattle from the pastures just above the property.
    “The Big House” has an exercise pool, a beautiful wood-burning fireplace with built-in Hawaiian wood art niches, walls of windows to the views, hardwood flooring, and lots of charm.
