Ready to Build Lot at Kohala By The Sea on the Big Island

Real Estate Agent with Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers Big Island

For Kohala Coast real estate buyers ready to step outside the resorts and contemplate building a fine home on a vacant lot in a nearby gated community, Kohala By the Sea is often the first choice.

Among its attractions: proximity to beaches and resort amenities, plus the "town" amenities of nearby Waimea. Lots that are 1-1.5 acres and more amenable to residential landscaping in contrast with the larger acreages of nearby Kohala Ranch.  A steep slope to the community with roads laid out to protect the views of one row of house from intrusion by the houses below.

The problem? Not many desirable lots are left. 

But I have a secret, that will soon be secret no longer.

Ocean View Lot at Kohala By The Sea

This lot at the top of Kohala By the Sea was passed over by many sets of buyers who thought the building area went into the gulch. That is not the case at all!  In fact, the previous owner was a contractor who graded a building site to be both level with the road and adjacent to the gully which would protect the big ocean views.  He'd prepared sketches for a house with a courtyard featuring an infinity pool, and I've walked the lot to mark where the corners of the house would lie.

Site Plan for home at Kohala By the Sea

The new house under construction on the lot to the left will be behind; the house already built across the gulch on the right is above and behind.  In other words, this lot is ready-to-build with an ideal site already prepared.

Offered at $299,500 - below recent comparable sales in the community.  In my opinion, the best buildable lot for sale at Kohala By the Sea.
