The owners of this breathtaking 1.1 acre parcel of land are an American couple based in Hawaii. They purchased this lot in 2009 for US$110,000 and are now selling their land and a complete set of house plans for “Vale Lujuah” for only FJ$30,000.
They owned a high-end residential construction company for many years and carefully selected this lot above all others for a variety of reasons.
With an altitude of approx. 800 feet, the temperature is a bit cooler and therefore enjoys more trade winds than many other parcels. It’s located on the slopes of Mount Uluiqalau, the island’s highest point at over 4000 feet and this lot has breathtaking mountain views of the lush green jungle. This parcel also has extraordinary unobstructed panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and of the light blue waters that surround the outer islands over the Somosomo Straights.
The owners spent close to 2 years and considerable expense on researching and designing a beautiful 2 bedroom easy to build and easy to care for tropical home along with a guest house. They retained the services of a well-known residential home designer named Dip Narayan who is based in Suva and flew him over to Taveuni Estates to assist in figuring out the best placement for the home and guest house in order to take advantage of the awesome views and cooling trade winds.
The 19-page set of house plans are comprehensive and complete and ready to build which will save you time, money and months of stress. The plans can also be easily modified should you choose.
They are up to date with all yearly rates and the water lines were installed by Taveuni Estates in 2010.
The quality of the soil is rich and outstanding for farming of all kinds. The lot was cleared in 2010 and dozens of large trees that once obstructed the views were dug out and removed. The owners along with a number of people in the local village were hired and together worked for weeks planting one of the largest organic fruit and vegetable gardens at Taveuni Estates. No pesticides were ever sprayed on the land and each week after they harvested the crops, large amounts of produce was gifted to the local families who lovingly tended the garden.
On the lower portion of the lot, 84 dwarf palm trees with various colored nuts were strategically planted. Dwarf palms were selected as not to obstruct the view of their future home or guest house or the views of their neighbors.
A bounty of tropical fruit trees and fruiting vines including passionate fruit, papaya and 3 bananas groves along with over 20 multi-colored fragrant plumeria trees and a cutting garden filled with bright red gingers and yellow and orange Heleconia flowers were also planted.
This beautiful lush tropical garden is currently hidden under the overgrowth but will reveal itself in its full glory once the lot is partially cleared.
Colorful red and blue parrots and other exotic songbirds along with multicolored butterflies frequent this remarkable property too.
“Vale Lujuah” is a very special parcel of land and an excellent value at only FJ$30,000 including the complete house plans
