Makawao Maui homes with 1/2 acre of land – what’s been selling lately?

Homes for sale in Makawao Maui – with a half acre of land

The Upcountry town of Makawao is home to a few subdivisions with half acre lots, where you can build a main house and a smaller cottage – usually 600 – 700 square feet.  Maui Uplands and Upland Estates are on the makai side of Makawao Avenue, and were developed in the 1980’s on old pineapple land.  Nowadays most of the lots are built out, with mature landscaping, creating a very nice contiguous neighborhood, but without a lot of ocean views.

You can also find some large lots independent of these developments, in random locations such as Piiholo Road, Olinda Road or right in Makawao town.  They will generally be older homes, with big old trees, and won’t be part of any Home Owners Association.

Check out the map to get an idea of the location of these homes in Makawao.  I’ve put the pin in the middle of the development.
