Listing RemarksThroughout the past 22 years, people—including real estate agents—have asked if this lot was for sale; until now, the answer was NO. The 7,500 sq ft lot and small (li'ili'i) Hale presents a unique opportunity for change ... simpler, and closer to nature.
The Hale is nice: light, clean and small, with an Asian feel. It provides living simply and a closeness to the land. It is sturdily built with many windows and Home Depot's high-end, waterproof, Allure Ultra flooring. One simple solar Lucy-Light lights it adequately. There is also a small storage shed on the lot.
There is a slice-view of the ocean and a wide-open panoramic view of the state forest of Ohia trees. Given its location, traffic is limited. Power is at the corner of the lot for those who want to connect to it.
Most of the trees and shrubs on the lot are well established, having received little or no help since being planted 22 years ago. There are:
- A variety of palms
- Two star fruit trees
- A nice blooming puakenikeni and large azalea
- A fruiting mango and noni
- An ulu
- An unusual white orchid tree
- Avocados that might fruit with a little care ... or they may need grafting
- Hibiscus, and more.
Chameleons and other small reptiles call the place home, as do a variety of birds including Red Cardinals and a pair of 'Io Hawks that occasionally grace the sky.
Kalapana Seaview Estates is perhaps the best subdivision in lower Puna in terms of affordability and what it has to offer: Openness. Stars. Paved and county maintained streets. Diverse and friendly people. Typically enough rainfall for catchments. A dark sky policy (walks at night with the trades are truly amazing). Sunny days. A bus stop. Three parks, one with a pavilion for gatherings. Kehena Beach. Uncle Roberts. The Kaimu Market .... all nearby. And the beauty of the Red Road (Highway 137).
