BUILD ON TOP OF THE WORLD! Or at least feel like you have. It is rare when such a beautiful parcel of land, offering an unobstructed panoramic view, is offered for sale on Maui, arguably the best Maui Upcountry acreage to come on the market in recent years. This 6.21 acre parcel lies in the heart of Kula’s Keokea region at an elevation of approximately 3,000 feet. This acreage is located at the top of Maukanani Road, which extends uphill from Kula Highway and offers gently sloping agriculturally zoned land with a County water meter.
Heavenly Living Year-round! The lot slopes gently, open terrain offers over 180 degree unobstructed panoramic views from much of the acreage; yielding greater flexibility when determining where and what to build. This is a very unique and special part of Maui, offering a pastoral setting with a world-class climate – temperatures average about 10 to 12 degrees cooler than coastal areas of Maui year-round. Daytime highs are generally in the 80’s in summer and 70’s in winter and the cooler evenings are a pleasant contrast to the warmer, more humid shoreline and, with rainfall ranging from 20 to 30 inches per year, you will find this as perfect a year-round climate as you can find anywhere in the World, literally. Many Upcountry Kula residents live comfortably year round without heat or air conditioning, how's that for living green.
Convenient to Shops and Recreation! With the addition of a new retail and commercial center, Kulamalu, along Kula Highway in Pukalani and the many other retail and business centers in Pukalani and Makawao, Upcountry residents have greater access to a growing array of goods and services just a few minutes from home; lessening their need to travel down the mountain to Kahului or Kihei.
This acreage would be great for grazing horses, developing a thriving garden or landscaping with an abundance of fruit and flowering trees.
Oh, The Majestic Views! To the right, this view illustrates what one sees with the naked eye, from this rare parcel. The views from this land stretch from the island of Kaho’olawe, Molokini crater and the Wailea and Kihei coastline to the South across to Lana'i, Ma'alaea Bay and McGregor Point, than across the central valley and West Maui Mountains to the West. As one continues around, one focuses on Maui's main commercial center, Kahului (and Wailuku), Kahului Bay, the North Coast of West Maui, than the wind and kite surfing meccas along the North Shore, from Kahana Beach Park, past Sprecklesville, to Paia.
Turn to the East and gaze up at the pastoral slopes of Haleakala to it's summit, 10,023 feet above sea level. Few locations are surrounded by so much majesty and beauty.
Neighbors, What Neighbors?! Another great advantage to Upcountry Kula is the ability to build on large lots, giving you substantial separation from your closest neighbors. With few parcels smaller than two acres, the minimum for agricultural zoned land, there is abundant opportunity to build your dream home/estate to provide privacy, incredible views from every room, many landscaping themes and amenities to suit your lifestyle.
All that and, with Thompson Ranch nearby, don't be surprised if you run into Oprah at Cafe 808.
More Options! With over six acres of land, you will have many options for building your beautiful estate, including a pool, spa, tennis court, stable. At one time, the County had given preliminary approval to subdividing the parcel into two three acre lots. A reservation still exists with the County Water Department for an additional water meter. While the subdivision application was withdrawn by the current owner, there are currently efforts underway to renew the application for sub-division.
