I have the pleasure of listing one of the most unique properties in town. It's a home tucked away in the way, way back of Palolo Valley off a private road. It's the home of Dale Hope, author of The Aloha Shirt.
Palolo Valley Estate (MLS # 201513352) set in the way... back of Palolo Valley
This is such a special place and not many people know about it. When most people think of Palolo Real Estate, they think of old single wall construction (often times cpr'd) plantation style homes built in the 50's in a high density area with 5,000 sq. ft. lots (or less). Comparing this property to those is like comparing apples to oranges. Once you get in the back of the valley, through private road access - it literally feels like you're on the North Shore or a neighbor island. Set on nearly an acre, this offers "country living", yet you have all the conveniences of town.
The video here give you an idea of the space, privacy and all that is offered in this rare opportunity.
Bargain Compared to Competition
If you're in the market for something in the $3-3.5 million range in town, some of the options are McMansions in interior Kahala on a quarter acre lot (with not much privacy) or perhaps a newer condo in Kakaako in a building like Waiea or Hokua and having high maintenance fees and very little living area...
Living "Off The Grid"
Although not completely off the grid, this home was revolutionary when built with a 15,000 gallon water catchment system, environmentally friendly composting toilet and also PV (Photovoltaic) panels to offset energy use.
