Kohala Ranch on the Big Island of Hawaii is a gated community with 4,000 acres of rolling hills. Located in North Kahala just north of Kohala by the Sea, and the resort communities of Mauna Lani, Mauna Kea and Waikoloa, residents of this highly exclusive neighborhood enjoy an upscale lifestyle that's hard to beat.
Spread over 3,500 acres, Kohala Ranch homes for sale are divided into three smaller subdivisions: The Heathers, The Meadows, and The Summit. The names of each reflects the particular elevation of the neighborhood which ranges from sea (The Heathers) to sky (The Summit).
Residents of Kohala Ranch also receive an extra tax break in the form of an agricultural tax deduction, as live cattle are herded in the area as "natural grass maintenance."
As mentioned earlier, the Kohala Ranch real estate market can be divided into three smaller communities: The Heathers, The Meadows, and The Summit.
Each subdivision offers a range of lot sizes: 0.5-5-acre parcels in The Heathers and The Meadows, and much parcels up to 10 acres in size at The Summit.
The Heathers is probably the most sought after of the three neighborhoods within Kohala Ranch, mainly because it is where you'll find the area's most coveted waterfront properties. As you can expect prices reflect the demand, so the most expensive single-family homes and estates are located within The Heathers. Is is also here where residents enjoy the most year-round sunshine, and least amount of annual precipitation. The average elevation of homes in The Heathers is 400 to 800-feet above sea level.
The Meadows is located in between The Heathers and The Summit at an elevation ranging from 1,200-2,000 feet above sea level. As a result, temperatures are cooler overall, although residents still enjoy lots of year-round sunshine. The cooling breezes provide welcome relief to residents furing the hot summer months. The Meadows is where you can find expansive acreages as well as vacant lots ready to be developed, ideal for those homebuyers hoping to build a brand-new custom home.
Like its namesake suggests The Summit puts you at the highest elevations in Kohala Ranch ranging from 2,000-3,000+ feet above sea level. As you can expect, this translates into cooler temperatures overall, but well worth it for the spectacular views from the top. Expect lush tropical landscaping, acreage (up to 10 acres), and plenty of elbow room. There are roughly 80 homesites available at The Summit, a mix of vacant lots and single-family homes.
