NIUMALU Lihue, HI 96766
The Headlands of Kalanipu'u is a truly remarkable, one-of-a-kind property. It is situated minutes from Lihue Town, Lihue Airport, restaurants, shopping, schools and midway between the North and South Shores. This incomparable property consists of a total of 1,395 acres surrounded by ocean, river, and harbor frontage and has two additional 'kuleana' (legal parcels). The terrain is remarkably diverse, rugged, and pristine, rising from the ocean at sea level up to approximately 1,600 feet in altitude. With the large parcel and two additional smaller Kuleana properties, there is the potential for 'consolidation and resubdivision'. If approved, it will allow adjustments to the current parcel boundaries. This will call for an environmentally friendly planner and architect to design homes that blend into the building site and take advantage of the various unobstructed and spectacular views. There are no utilities currently servicing the property. This would allow the homes to be built that will make the smallest of carbon footprints by living 'off the grid'. Imagine the feeling of solitude and extreme privacy. And yet, it will still be 5 to 10 minutes from town and 'civilization'. Create hiking and walking trails through the mountains and valleys and along the shoreline and within the property which will have unobstructed Pacific Ocean, Hule'ia river, and Nawiliwili Harbor views. The Pacific Ocean frontage goes for miles. Go kayaking up the Hule'ia River to the ancient Menehune Fishpond. The views of the iconic mountains, mountain ridges and valleys are also truly magnificent. Incidentally, you will own three of the mountains you are viewing: Kalanipu'u, Keopaweo and Hokunui. You could create a helipad as Lihue airport is located 5 minutes away from the property or come across the river from the harbor by boat (a 5-minute trip) and then moor your boat at your property. This is a unique opportunity to own a very private, serene, and captivating piece of Kauai.
