Listing Remarks

This Lot is without doubt one of the very best in ALL of Fern Forest! Located at the very top of Kahauale`a Road, at the top of Fern Forest, and bordering the huge Kahauale`a Natural Area Reserve, at an elevation of 2,800 feet - well out of the Heat and Bug Zone! Lot was partially cleared by the former Owner many years ago but is now overgrown, with many fine Native Ohia and other tree species and Hapu`u Ferns. The Road dead ends at the Reserve so there is no thru traffic! Because the Road descends fairly steeply from the top, there is a potential panoramic view of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea from a second story (Height limit for Dwelling is 35 feet above grade), depending on how much forest is cleared Mauka of the Home! This view can be seen just standing on the Road (See first photo). Hawaiian Telcom has just installed Fiber Optic Cable all the way to the end of the Road, offering total landline, TV and Fiber Optic ultra highspeed broadband internet up to one gigabits per second! This elevation is ideal for a large variety of greenhouse garden crops, including greens, beans, squash, tomatoes, peppers and many other vegetables! Bananas, lemons, limes and other tropical fruit trees will do well. All but the last 1,125 feet of Kahauale`e is paved, so it is an easy 5 minute drive to Highway 11. From there it is just a 7 minute drive to Historic Volcano Village with its renowned Sunday Morning Farmer's Market, shopping and Artist Galleries. Or head North down the Mountain for a beautiful 30 minute drive to Charming and Authentic Hilo Town, with shopping Centers, malls, theaters, galleries, great and varied restaurants and the Hilo International Airport!
