Of the Ko Hawai'i Pae 'Aina this .639 acre property sits in what was once the forested lands of 'Ola'a. Formerly part of the crowned lands of the Hawaiian monarchy, Olaa, located in the district of Puna and was noted for growth of 'ohi'a, loulu, and other fauna associated with home building, canoe making, and hula of old Hawaii. Over the years the forests were cleared and this specific area was used for sugarcane, hopeful coffee fields, and cattle ranching. There are still remnants of a bygone era with the “Old Volcano Rd” at the rear of the property.
Fronting the property is Volcano Road also known as Mamalahoa Hwy, Hawaii Belt Road, and Hwy 11. Its convenient location places you 20 minutes from the Hilo Airport and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. There are convenience stores just minutes up or down the road. Opportunities to purchase a property like this do not come along every day. Take advantage of the cooler climate that mauka offers and the comforts of being on the outskirts of Hilo. Also, no catchment needed here! County Water and electricity are available.
