Malama Ki Pl

PAHOA HI, 96778


This is truly a one of a kind property! The overwhelming WOW factor of the 2018 Kilauea eruption is more than obvious as you traverse the lava road to enter the property. The ocean view over the lava field from the long driveway is incredible, then you pass into a jungle of native Ohia, Lauhala, and Waiwi before rounding the corner to the cleared section of the property with the structure.

The structure, while built without permits, shows phenomenal craftsmanship and pride of work. The cedar paneled walls and open beam ceilings, paired with the large windows and french doors, that lead out to a lanai made from beautifully stamped concrete are a great foundation to add onto and build your dream home, or continue the lifestyle of simplicity. There is an additional 20' x 20' concrete slab that used to have a structure on it, that can be a used to build another dwelling, workshop, or carport.

The jungle included in this 10.5 acre property really is the best part. There have been some trails cleared and mapped, and most of the property is traversable with a good pair of hiking boots. The trails and paths lead to some of the most beautiful, and absolutely massive lava tubes in the area. They are estimated to be from the early 1800's based on location. With some more land clearing at least two of them can be walked directly into without any need for caving gear. These caves really only just started being explored by the seller, and there may be much more to discover!

This property is located in lava zone 2. The structure is unpermitted. Insurance is not guaranteed, and should be verified with HPIA and any other carriers writing policies in lava zone 2. There is no available financing for a property like this, the seller may possibly entertain a PMM with a minimum of $80,000 down.
