The building site at 3515 Lower Kula Road

With the existing home at over 700 square feet, there are two building options for potential buyers. As it stands, a second home limited to 700 square feet or less could be built as the accessory dwelling or cottage of the property. The highest and best use for the property would be to work with an architect to downsize the existing structure to 700 square feet or under. That would then allow the new owner to build the main home at the top of the property. This site offers the best views. A single story home would have big views of Ma’alaea Bay and the island of Lanai. A two story home would have sweeping views of both the North Shore and South Maui coastlines, the West Mountains and the Central Valley.
