Once part of the Puna Sugar Company lands, Keaau Agricultural Lots were ceded to the employees of the company in lieu of a retirement plan when Puna Sugar went out of business after 80 years of operation. Now, these properties are among the most sought after in the Big Island’s Puna district and one of the most desired locations near Hilo town.
While the lots are generally not in commercial agricultural use today, those who live in this area do have access to some of the Big Island’s best and most affordable fresh fruits and vegetables at Keaau’s daily farmers’ market, and, of course, at Hilo’s farmers’ market (Wednesday and Saturday) which is also nearby.
Less than seven years old and beautifully maintained, MLS 247984 is ideally located just far enough from town for peace and privacy, but also allows quick access to Hilo, the University of Hawaii-Hilo, beaches, surfing, golfing, Volcanoes National Park and much more. There are many special added features throughout the home, like the lava rock fireplace and koa mantle.
