Kohala Ranch Heathers: Lucky Bennett designed home with pool and big ocean views

Leave a reply


Solar Heated Pool and Stunning Views of the Kohala Coast

The buyers who came by the Kohala Ranch Thanksgiving week-end Open House expressed to me once again, as far as location is concerned, their preference for the Heathers, the lowest section of Kohala Ranch.  The proximity of the Kohala Coast and the warm temperatures are definitely a draw to buyers.

Kohala Ranch Winter 2013 Market Update

The seven current listings in the Heathers range in price from $1,249,000 for a 1988 home with only two bedrooms and fantastic location to $2,995,000 for a home on 5.07 acres with over 8,000 sq.ft and six bedroom suites.

This first section of Kohala Ranch was developed in the early 90’s and some of the home styles can look and feel dated. It turns out to be not true for this elegant Lucky Bennett home currently listed at $1,895,000, (MLS #263082), completed in 2003 and continually upgraded by the present owners starting in 2005.


Gourmet Kitchen with Viking Appliances and Fisher Paykel Double Drawer Dishwasher

Lucky Bennett designed home with numerous features and upgrades

This is a 4 bedroom, 3 bath house with 3,000 sq.ft. of interior space and over 800 sq.ft. of covered lanais for outdoor living. The home is situated on a very private 3 acre lot and enjoy stunning views of the coastline, Hualalai, Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea.

Besides upgrading exterior (i.e. Mahogany garage and front doors were installed) and interior details (i.e. wood ceiling in great room and master bedroom were installed) the sellers also worked on extensive landscaping, installed solar heating for the pool, central A/C and a photovoltaic system with 24 panels.


Wood ceiling in great room and upgraded ceiling fans

With the market heating up this property might be the next one to go. I like to show it with anyone looking for a private and energy efficient home where entertaining outside, enjoying the swimming pool and watching the sunset are part of their Hawaii lifestyle.

Exterior Features

The landscaping at this property is easy to maintain with lots of potential to elaborate if you enjoy gardening. When you first drive up to the property you are greeted by well sculpted and extensive rock wall work. There is a two car carport with an outside storage closet, an additional storage closet on the side of the house and lots of storage inside the home.

One of the hidden treasures of this property is behind the house. A large cement slab in the back of the home is positioned perfectly for a picnic table and umbrella. Enjoy expansive ocean, sunset and coastline views from this back recreational area.

Hoomana View Edited

This is a large, charming home with lots of square footage for the price. This home has lots of potential and would be a great starter home, rental or retirement home. With a slim selection of houses under $400,000 I don’t expect this home to last on the market long.
