Fourteen miles north of Hilo, along the gateway to the scenic Hamakua Coastline is this spectacular oceanfront parcel fit for a dream home. A gently rolling grassland with a large flat hill-top on the lot is quite suitable for a home. From this location there is a large window through the trees showing breaking waves on the shoreline to the south.

The current owner has planted some fruit trees and macadamia nut trees on the lot. There is a near vertical steep cliff down to the ocean. Build a home with unobstructed ocean views. From the cliff you can see a waterfall nearby. Only minutes to Hilo, yet feels like a world away. A small gated community with county water available.

The lot is located in what is known in Hawaii as the “Conservation District, Resource sub-zone”. Anyone purchasing this lot needs to familiarize themselves with HAR 13-5 as the uses of the lot are governed by this statute as well as the County of Hawaii zoning laws and SMA regulations. The county classifies the lot as “open, agricultural”. Conservation District guidelines provides what is referred to as Maximum Developable Area (MDA).

HAR 13-5 also provides that agricultural use is allowable as a ‘non-conforming’ land use (without any permit being required from DLNR) as the area was utilized for sugar cane production up to 1992. Also HAR 13-5 provides that the lot owner may apply for garden uses and even general landscaping of the lot. Usually landscaping uses would be applied for at the time of applying for a CDUP for the construction of a single family residence on the property.

There exists a 6 ft high view-plane restriction on the south end of the lot. There are no association fees. No phone lines on to the property, but neighbor has land line and the easement provides that such service may be installed along the easement.

Buyers must independently verify all information they deem material or important to their purchase with the appropriate governmental agencies.
