A drone view shows both the upper protea farm area and the home built on a slope so that the view cannot be obstructed. The packing shed was used to dry the flowers and fashion them into protea wreaths for sale at craft fairs.
What I love about this home: Views. Privacy. Space. Subdivision potential, 18 degrees cooler than the valley. Laundries on upper level. Top acres with potential for 3 view lots with great road access. Handicap friendly. You can own your rural family estate. Lots of room and short, beautiful drive to stores. Low property taxes ($2000/yr). Tell your friends about Hawaii where pensions are not taxed.
This 3.47 acre parcel is zoned rural 0.5 acre and is #472 on the Maui 2017 Water Meter List for 5 new meters. A preliminary subdivision into 3 lots was approved in 1985 but allowed to lapse. Rural half acre zoning allows for up to six residential dwellings or structures on this parcel without subdivision. We have three. However a new dwelling permit requires that the total number of water fixture points for all dwellings not exceed 31 points. The house and cottage total that limit. It is possible to purchase up to 8 more points for most of Upcountry with the approval of the Director, currently Dave Taylor. Subdivision requires satisfaction of expensive Fire Flow regulations. Currently, an exemption from these regulations for one extra parcel is allowed with the approval of the Director. We expect some of these regulations to change in the near future.
The stunning panoramic views of Maui from the wrap around decks of this two story, 5 bedroom, 3 bath home accessed by a lower driveway makes this property an upcountry jewel. Upstairs, 3 beds and 2 baths, an open floor plan, high beam ceiling, covered paved lanai, wood burning fireplace insert, and large decks provide a perfect home for family gatherings and entertaining. Downstairs, the house has 2 more bedrooms, a full bathroom, a workshop and a large deck fronting the view. The lower driveway also leads to a detached 1 bedroom "no hana" located above a 2 car garage / shed rented month to month. Both house and cottage are centrally heated by diesel forced air systems. A wheel chair capable exterior lift connects the carport to the upper level. Also known as Valley View Protea Farm, the upper 1.5 acres of this property are mostly level with two more entrances off of Crater Road. More than 5 varieties of protea are now being harvested. A 300 ft, 104 cu. yd. gated concrete upper driveway leads to an additional 3 room garage / workshop and garage door. The parcel is is #472 on the meter list for more 5 meters for potential subdivision into 3 to 5 parcels. This property includes about 500 sq. ft. of improvements and decks under roof not reflected in the Maui County Tax records. This is definitely a property worth viewing! Short notice can be accommodated.
