Spotlight on Kapalua’s Pineapple Hill & Pineapple Hill Estates
Kapalua’s Pineapple Hill and Pineapple Hill Estates is a popular neighborhood in the heart of the Kapalua Resort.
Pineapple Hill is the first phase of the development and was originally designed with 99 homesites, most being a quarter-acre, though many of them were consolidated to make larger lots. Owners must build one of six floor plans (thought modifications are allowed with approval from the Design Review Committee), unless buildling on two or more contiguous lots, in which case a custom home is permitted.
Pineapple Estates was annexed in early in 2001, with 31 homesites being integrated into the community. Lots are larger (approximately a half-acre) and custom homes with a 25-foot roof height are permitted, with the caveat that two-story construction is only allowed on the top row.
With a mix of older and newer construction, we have seen some lower sales in Pineapple Hill in the past few years. However, average sales prices have been increasing as has the volume of sales, particularly when comparing October of this year with October of 2018 and 2017:
