Listing Remarks

This 26.70 acres of land is home to the Botanical World Gardens, a world-class botanical garden located on the Hamakua Coast of the Big Island. The botanical garden operation is mostly contained in an approximate 5 to 6-acre area within the upper portion of the 26 acres with unobstructed easy 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 Hanapueo Falls with a native trail that leads to the falls and lower stream. The gardens are said to contain the world’s 2nd-largest woody maze of mock orange, as large as a football field. The land is landscaped with a rare collection of plants of which many are identified by genus and specie—over 700 different species and counting—a continued labor of love. There is an ongoing effort to identify tens of thousands other individual remaining plants. If being surrounded by ocean views, botanical bounty and beauty appeals to you, here is a most unique factor about this property: the deed contains specific language for 5 pre-existing lots of record via historic land grants and recognized by the County of Hawaii Real Property Division. A vision may be for 5 future home sites contained within the botanical gardens, or not. However, this is a rarely found pre-existing right and adds financial value. There is an approximate 300’ deep well with basic plumbing to supply the property with water according to the Seller, "so pure that the first response from the testing company was for the Seller to supply another water sample in order to double-check before any filtration equipment was installed". Because the water was found to be pure, there is no filtration system on the well supply today. Within the 26 acres there is an approximate 4 to 5-acre area currently leased by the Botanical World Zipline for their staging area only; no zip lines on the subject property.
