I’ve actually excellent news for anybody who loves Oprah, Hawaii, cows and biologically regenerative tropical agriculture! And I imply, truthfully, who would not completely love all 4 of these actual issues???
One of many largest privately-owned properties on the coast of Maui simply got here up on the market. The three,600-acre property, generally known as Hana Ranch, is positioned instantly subsequent door to a 100-acre property owned by Ms. Winfrey.
There is a little bit of dangerous information although. Earlier than you get too excited, Oprah’s neighboring property is definitely undeveloped. Oprah owns $200 million price of land and actual property in the US, together with SEVERAL HUNDRED acres of land on Maui, however her precise Maui mansion will not be positioned on the property subsequent door to Hana Ranch.
That does not imply she’ll by no means construct a second Maui mansion on the neighboring property in some unspecified time in the future, however assume it could possibly be some time earlier than you are in a position to pop over to borrow a cup of sugar or gossip about Meghan and Harry.
Oh, one other slight problem: Should you do need to personal Hana Ranch, the asking worth is…
Hana Ranch is positioned on the distant far-eastern facet of Maui, about 2.5 – 3 hours from the extra touristy areas of Wailea and Lahaina on the west facet. Should you’ve ever been to Maui and did “the highway to Hana,” you had been very near Hana Ranch at occasions. As we stated beforehand, it is a 3,600-acre property so that you’re “shut” from a bunch of factors on the Hana Freeway. And if you happen to made all of it the way in which to the precise city of Hana, that is very near Hana Ranch’s important entrance gate.
The present proprietor of the ranch is sustainable agriculture firm referred to as Bio-Logical Capital. Bio-Logical purchased the ranch in 2014 for $9 million.
Based on Hana Ranch’s web site, the property options an 1,800 square-foot, two bed room main residence. So ya, potential consumers are being requested to fork over $75 million for a ranch that encompasses a pretty modest 2-bedroom residence.
However, potential consumers will get pleasure from unending ocean and mountain views, acre-upon-acre of lush fruit and vegetable vegetation, horse stables, a using enviornment and way more.
Roughly 2,500 of Hana’s 3,600 acres are zoned strictly for agricultural use. I am undecided if the $75 million asking worth contains the property’s 1,000 head of cattle. And earlier than you scoff at that, remember the fact that a cow in Maui may simply fetch $3,000 – $4,000. Utilizing the low finish of that vary, if there are 1,000 cows on the property and so they’re included within the sale, that is $3 million in added worth proper there.
Actually, you would not be shopping for this property for luxurious facilities within the quick time period. You will construct a bigger mansion in some unspecified time in the future and then you definately’ll maintain this property generations. Lengthy after nuclear warfare and the zombie apocalypse, you are heirs can be having fun with Hana Ranch. And who is aware of? Possibly you’ll stumble upon Oprah some day within the subsequent decade or two. Cannot put a worth on that!
