Listing Remarks

This 26.70 acre is home to the Botanical World Gardens, a world-class botanical garden located on the Hamakua Coast of the Big Island. The garden operation is contained in a 5 to 6-acre area with access to the remaining 20 acre lower gardens. There is a view of the Pacific Ocean from almost every possible future building site on the property. There are several small waterfalls including the 15’ Hanapueo Falls with a native trail that leads to the falls and the lower stream. The gardens contain the world’s second-largest woody maze of mock orange as large as a football field. The parcel has completed botanical landscaping with one if not the largest collections of plants, many identified by genus and species-over 700 different species and counting. There is an ongoing effort to identify tens of thousands of other individual remaining plants. If being surrounded by ocean views, botanical bounty and beauty appeals to you, here is another unique factor about this property: the deed contains reservations for 5 pre-existing lots of record via land grants and recognized by the County of Hawaii Real Property Division. This means that the current or new owner already has the approval to subdivide into 5 lots which can be done by submitting a consolidation and re-subdivision plan to the County. The vision may be for 5 future homes contained within the botanical gardens, or not; however, this is a valuable and rarely found pre-existing right. There is a 300’ deep well with basic plumbing to supply the property with water so pure that the first response from the testing company was to supply another sample to double-check before any filtration equipment was installed. Because the water was found to be so pure, there is no filtration system on the well supply today. Besides the gardens, there is an additional 4 to 5-acre parcel leased by the Botanical World Zipline for their staging area only. The parcel is fully contained with no direct adjacent neighbors.
