This Kohala Ranch lot in the Summit section offers almost 13 acres with sweeping ocean, mountain and Maui views. There is a knoll at the upper center of the lot; building below it would provide protection from the trade winds, with a long driveway providing privacy from Kohala Ranch Road. And from this spot you can see the green puu (cinder cones) on the Kohala Mountains above, as well as enjoy watching the sun set into the ocean.
Situated at a comfortable 2230 feet above sea level, the lot borders the ranch equestrian easement on its north side. You could locate the barn, arena and paddocks on the far side of the house near the trail.
If you choose to build on the flat area closer to Kohala Ranch Road, you would have excellent views of Hualalai, Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea looking south.
Kohala Ranch is a gated community with a 24 hour attendant at the lower gate, just a short drive from the Kohala Coast resorts. Design review guidelines and CC&Rs ensure consistency in the homes. Lots of 3-14 acres provide plenty of privacy and a rural feeling.
The Summit section is close to the upper gate, off scenic Kohala Mountain Road, for an easy commute to Waimea town (Kamuela) where you will find shopping, farmers markets, live entertainment at the Kahilu Theatre, private schools, and medical services including North Hawaii Community Hospital. Turn north on Hwy 250 to head along a scenic drive towards the towns of Hawi and Kapaau with their restaurants, boutiques and art galleries.
