Hilo, HI 96720
Listing RemarksPremiere forested 5 acres with old growth native Ohia, Hapu'u tree ferns and Koa features some large and beautiful specimens. Gated driveway leads back to where the Owner has built a small unfinished holiday cabin. The cabin is un-Permitted and does not comply with all State and County building codes - however Owner is a Mechanical Engineer and his partner does Occupational Heath and Safety Inspections so it is well-constructed.
Add generator or solar, and propane to have hot and cold running water via existing catchment system: with pump, pressure tank and water heater. There is a bathroom, washing machine, small fridge and a place to drop in a propane cooktop and a lovely semi enclosed "outdoor" shower. Besides the larger bedroom there are two areas that could be used as sleeping lofts (or storage) by the kitchen. There is a one car garage and landscaping includes bamboo, some bananas, Kukui, seven apple trees and much removal of in invasive species.
The property is fenced at the back and right side. The adjacent neighbor is McCall's Flower Farm which is a working, successful organic produce and flower farm.
Improvements include approximately $10,000 of site work and gravel, $20,000+ of building materials and tens of thousands of dollars worth of labor. The Seller created a septic system and installed a 6000 gallon catchment tank. The place is wired and ready to plug in a generator or install solar panels and batteries (rails for solar are in place on the roof) upon which one could move right in.
This is the perfect situation for someone who wants to be on site while they build their dream home in Volcano. There is one clearing that would make an excellent house site and other areas that were previously farmed that could be cleared without harming any large native trees.
The location is prime - being just over a mile (on a paved road) above the shops and restaurants of charming Volcano Village.
