This 44 acre plus Upcountry Maui estate property must be seen and experienced to be appreciated. With two homes, a burgeoning native forest that is being subsidized by a conservation grant, a four-lot subdivision nearing completion and gorgeous views to the North Shore and West Maui Mountains, past Kahakuloa to Molokai, opportunities abound.

The primary residence is a luxurious 2 bedroom 2 bath home with a long list of amenities. Quality details include vaulted ceilings, an enormous lanai that looks towards the North Shore and Molokai, custom kitchen cabinetry, high quality granite kitchen counters, Brazilian Cherry Floors, two spa tubs in the bathrooms and a small photo-voltaic system to subsidize the electric bill.
