Meander down a quiet country drive, over wooden bridges and through old-growth forest and rogue coffee trees along the bend on Kahana Drive, you arrive at a rare one-of-a-kind lot in upper Ahualoa. This 5 ac. parcel is situated in its own mostly sunny microclimate surrounded on all sides by sprawling cattle pastures. The panoramic oceanview over rolling hills toward a breathtaking perspective view of Mauna Kea and observatories adds to the magic. There’s even a “secret” glade hidden in the upper-perimeter forest, a wide circle of sunny space surrounded by tall trees begging to become its own reading area or garden. Nature has blessed this land by dotting tree stands in a few places along the perimeter, leaving most as rolling open terrain. Lots of beautiful natives, including mature ohi'a lehua, hapu'u 'i'i (Hawaiian tree fern), white-and-pink bamboo orchids, orange crocosmia, monarch-loving milkweed, staghorn clubmoss, lace fern, sword fern (and many other ferns and mosses), indigo-colored dayflower, and edibles including blue porterweed (flowers taste like mushrooms!), pink wood sorrel, patches of both yellow Himalayan and red Indian raspberries, and even a small patch of rare popolo berries. There’s also a small area of mature producing avocado trees and a sprinkle of young guava trees. Close your eyes, hear the wind through the trees and you’ll be treated with calls from a variety of birds. Wildlife abounds in the area: wild turkey and pheasant have been spotted on the property, along with the endangered 'Io (Hawaiian hawk), Koloa (Hawaiian) duck, Pueo (Hawaiian owl), as well as the very rare ope'ape'a (Hawaiian bat.) Longtime neighbors include Ahualoa Alpacas and Cloud Forest Coffee. There are multiple choice build sites on the 2500-ft elevation parcel including one toward the top that has a view of Maui’s peaks. Sellers designed a charming “small house” plan for the property available upon request.
