This is a stellar opportunity to pick up a 1+ acre parcel, well steeped in the "plantation style" of old Hawai`i. Situated near the bottom of Honomu Rd, and a very short walk to Honomu town, this RS-7.5 zoned lot is nestled between 2 streams, and heavily landscaped with tropical foliage, including misc. fruit trees, palms and ornamentals. A short driveway off the street leads you to an old foot bridge on the path to the home where you can see remants of a 2nd homesite on the makai (ocean) side, as well as the location of 2 water meters, only 1 of which is currently active. Buyer to consult the Dept. of Water Supply regarding the 2nd meter. Per the seller who has enjoyed this gem for over 35 years, there are nice views of Mauna Kea and the ocean; however, some trees have obscured the views now, and selective clearing will be needed to regain those views. The single wall plantation home built at the turn of the previous century is showing its age, and while habitable for the caretaker, it really needs to be considered a tear down. It could serve as a storage or temporary quarters while you build your dream home. Zoning and the 2nd meter suggests a 2nd home could be built as well. To drive directly up to bluff where the 2 homesites are, a culvert or a bridge will need to be built to get across the first very small stream. Properties like this rarely come on the market, and with buyers coming to Big Island in record numbers over the past few months, this one is sure to go quickly.
