Kauai Upcountry

“Kauai Upcountry” usually makes people think of places like Kalihiwai Ridge and Hanalei on the North Shore.   When you work with a dedicated Buyers Agent who knows Kauai, then other possibilities open up at a much better value. 

Many luxurious homes located on the Eastside offer a remote, upcountry estate lifestyle at 50% to 60% of the values in Kalihiwai.   For example:

Makaleha Falls Subdivision – with only 22 homesites, each situated to maximize the views of the waterfalls, this offering has the acreage, country feeling, quality CC&R’s that one associates with North Shore luxury developments at a fraction of the cost:

1786 B Makaleha Place – $1,195,000 
3 bedroom / 3 bath luxury home on over 1 acre with private stream, waterfall views.  Newly built, quality construction.  MLS 217548

Wailua Homesteads – in the Wailua Homesteads area, you’ll find some beautiful, unique estate homes in remote areas that border acres of State Land and / or have magnificent Wailua River valley views.   Prices can range from just over $1M to $4M.  As an example, the listing below offers tremendous quality construction, unique mountain and river valley views and is priced just over $1M:

6885 Leimomi St – $1,190,000
Located directly on the Wailua River valley rim, ultimate privacy is yours.  Dry creek runs through the property, and gracious Ipe walkway bridge creates attractive feng shui. Lot also qualifies for Guest House. MLS 216695
