Recently subdivided from a larger parcel naturally split by a gulch, this 418-acre parcel has wide ocean views sweeping from the cliffs of Pololu Valley across the north shore of the Big Island towards the towns of Kapaau and Hawi. Mostly designated agricultural by the State, a portion is considered conservation as part of the Kohala Watershed forested uplands. County zoning of Ag-20a might make future subdivision a possibility. This could be a legacy purchase for a buyer who wishes to preserve and enhance the rich tradition of these historic lands. Nestled between the Waipunalau Gulch to the west and the Waikama Gulch to the east; bounded by the Kohala Ditch on a portion of the lower (north) side and the Kohala Forest Preserve on the upper (south) side, this parcel embodies the agricultural heritage of Kohala. Its deep fertile soil would support many types of agriculture. The middle section was previously licensed to a small scale sustainable farm. There are unpermitted farm structures on the land, including a solar/photovoltaic system. The parcel was previously the site of a zip-line; Kohala Ditch Adventures launches at a section adjacent to this parcel. The land has potential for eco-tourism or agricultural tourism. Water features include a spring and seasonal streams and waterfalls in the gulches. Rainfall in this area is adequate for catchment water for agriculture and dwellings. The parcel is accessed by an unimproved easement of approximately two miles in length. Several easements cross the property providing access for the owner of the parcels above. Buyers to do their own due diligence regarding the easements. Can be purchased together with MLS 616280 for a total of 485 acres. The amenities of Kapaau and Hawi-restaurants, galleries, shops, Kamehameha Park for recreation, weekly farmers market—are a few miles from the property. Hawi's Upolu airport can accommodate a small jet; Kona airport is 90 minutes away
