Uluwehi Farm is a dream property for sustainability seekers, horticulturists, permaculture specialists or organic farmers. It is one of the largest, most striking and evolving permaculture sites in Hawaii. The master-planned, environmental design of the farm factors in people, plants, animals, climate, weather, and land-use disciplines in one of the most desirable locations in North Kohala. The farm rests at approximately 250 feet elevation and about 1,500 feet from the ocean, allowing for fantastic ocean and Maui views.
The house was designed for energy efficiency and built with non-toxic, natural materials. It includes a grid inter-tied solar system and a water harvesting system. The 15-thousand gallon cistern spills into a swimming pond, and then into an aquaculture pond. The home also accesses county water and power as back up.
The land has a developing food forest featuring an abundant, diverse collection of edible and useful plants from around the world. Most notable are the 60 varieties of mango. Also included are oranges, grapefruits, lime, banana, papaya, avocado, as well as unusual plant species like the intensely fragrant champadek (a jackfruit relative). The multilayered forest also includes mahogany and other hardwoods, and a collection of cacti unrivaled on the island. Ducks, chickens, bees, sheep and goats help harmonize the farm.
In addition to the main house and garage, the property has several outbuildings: tool sheds, farm structures, two green houses, and additional dwellings, which include three small cottages and three open tea houses. The main house and garage are fully permitted but the other buildings on the property are not permitted.
This is a spectacular opportunity to own a one of a kind property; a perennial garden in a peaceful, private setting that has been designed with amazing vision and clarity of purpose.
