Oceanfront Options – The Leeward Coast – Makaha

Oceanfront property – whether it meets the sea with sandy beach or rocky shoreline – is by nature scarce, and consequently commands premium price points. Currently some of the best options for buyers and investors whose priority is ocean frontage can be found on Oahu’s Leeward Coast…and a full range of property types, from condos and single family homes to vacant land, is available.

Currently, a 13,850 square foot vacant parcel at Makaha offering options for development has been listed by Luxury Homes International at $1,100,000 fee simple. Zoned R-10, the property is subdivided into three separate contiguous lots extending from the sandy beachfront to Farrington Highway. The three lots – 5,782, 4082, and 3,986 square feet – are level and buildable with sewer, water, and electricity available.

Architectural concept plans for homes that could be built on the lots, all of which would have sweeping views of the ocean, Waianae coast and mountains, sunrises, and sunsets, are included in the sales price of the parcel. Listing Realtor Patrick O’Neill, Principal Broker of Luxury Homes International, noted that the property would also be ideal for one grand estate or multi-generational compound.

In addition to fronting a white sand beach washed by clear waters offering opportunities for a wide range of water sports, the property is within close proximity of the many sandy beaches and surf breaks of the Makaha coast, including the world-famous Makaha beach where the first big wave surfing competitions were held.

“This property is both well located and an excellent value,” O’Neill said. “Buyers are discovering the beauty of the Waianae Coast with its vast, unspoiled countryside, mountains and valleys, as well as beaches. In fact, the population continues to increase exponentially, so this is a good time to consider acquiring a rare beachfront property at a competitive price…since prices will continue to rise, as they have in Oahu’s other desirable oceanfront neighborhoods.”

He added that plans are in progress for the redevelopment of Makaha Valley, site of Leeward Oahu’s first resort.
