The only thing better than oceanfront might be "almost oceanfront", especially when it comes with a view plane easement to protect the expansive ocean and coastline views. This North Kohala landmark parcel of almost 118 acres has as its frontage a narrow oceanfront lot that is slated for purchase with Hawai'i County Public Access, Open Space and Natural Resource Preservation funds . This large agricultural parcel could be your private coastal sanctuary, while the oceanfront parcel has conservation zoning and deeded shoreline public access.

The area is rich in history. Just to the northwest lies Kauhola Point, an oceanfront acreage purchased by a non-profit with the help of Trust for Public Lands. Locals surf, fish and swim here as Kamehameha I and his family once did.

Previously used for sugar cane production and then leased for cattle and horse pasture, the land is slowly being restored to health with the vision of contributing to the redevelopment of sustainable agriculture in Kohala. The land has been improved with two wells and 54,000 gallon water tank, and a large steel agricultural storage building. Some acreage has been planted in trees (windbreak and orchards) and rotational grazing of cattle, horses and sheep is being used to clear invasive species and restore the health of pasture. Last year a gravel road was constructed on the access easement to the parcel.

The climate is perfect for off-grid living, with ample sun for photovoltaic and in one of the best locations on the island for wind energy. Farm, ranch or create an equestrian estate.

This parcel could also become a family compound. Seller has almost completed requirements for final approval of 5-lot subdivision. At this stage a buyer could still determine exact location of road and lot boundaries, or put the subdivision on hold in favor of creating a single large legacy estate.

The shops, galleries and services of Kapa'au and Hawi towns are a short drive away.

North Kohala

North Kohala is the northernmost district of the Big Island. Here, volcano goddess Pele’s creation has geologically matured and weathered over millennia from rugged lava into lush, rolling agricultural lands and wild isolated valleys. North Kohala is the birthplace of Kamehameha the Great and as such is a landmark of Hawaiian history. This area serves as both a center of ranching and agricultural production and as a bedroom community to the high-end resorts of the adjacent South Kohala Coast.

The small towns of Hawi and Kapa'au are home to a community of artists, business professionals, paniolo (cowboys), kama'aina families and retirees. Their colorful main street is lined with shops, galleries, eateries and markets that beckon the curious to stop and "talk story." Overall, the climate is benign, but powerful winds and storms can blow through.

Traveling south along the coast, residents of communities like Kohala Ranch and Kohala Estates, poised high above the coast, enjoy sweeping views of the ocean and neighboring Maui, seasonal whale-watching and breathtaking sunsets. Further down along the shore, property designated as Hawaiian Homelands runs into the Kawaihae area. Once a thriving center of Kamehameha’s kingdom, Kawaihae is still home to the ancient Hawaiian temple of Pu'ukohola.

With its rich history, artistic energy and vast open spaces, North Kohala is known to lure those seeking a sense of place and peace on Hawaii’s Big Island.
