5 Acres on the Kohala coast in the Heathers at Kohala Ranch…

From the moment you arrive at this 5-acre property on the lower portion of the Heathers, peace and quiet prevail. Access through a private gated entrance, strolling down a palm tree lined driveway, reveals endless ocean and coastline views.
This elegant 5-bedroom estate, barely 200′ above sea level, has been significantly improved by the current owner with the addition of a 2-bedroom ohana, mahogany trim, travertine floors, remodeled bathrooms, fresh paint and new carpets. The splendid landscaped grounds are fenced; there’s a 3-car garage plus a 2-car porte-cochere and plenty of space for a boat with easy access in and out of the property.Kohala Ranch August
