Kailua-Kona, HI 96740
Listing RemarksRich in beauty and history this gently sloping ranch stretches across 21 acres of deep, fertile soil above Hokulia Resort. The land, first gifted to the mother of Queen Lili'uokolani, was originally planted in sugar cane from 1870-1875 to supply the mill in the small town of Wai'aha, above the town of Kailua. The sugar mill, operated by the Kona Sugar Co., constructed an 11 mile elevated railroad beginning at the mill and ending at the south end of this very property. When operations ceased in 1926, the ranch came under the ownership of the Greenwell family and remained there until purchased from a trust in 2009.
Today, the land is home to a sea of whispering cattle grass, old growth monkey pod, kukui and mango trees. Standing on the land looking west, feeling the breeze in your face, your eyes are flooded with vibrant colors around you. And it's in that moment, looking across a landscape dotted with relics of Hawaii's ancient past, you realize that this property is truly exceptional.
This lot was recently subdivided from a 46 Acre piece and is now available either with the resulting 25 Acres (MLS 643024), or separately.
