TRULY UNIQUE & ONE-OF-A-KIND PROPERTY! KNOWN BY MANY AS "THE HOBBY GARDEN."

The owner's dream was to create a children's learning center in Kea'au, which he spent his lifetime fulfilling. Since opening the doors of the "Hobby Garden" in 2006, the property has been a place for school children of various ages to visit and explore the many facets of the owners' engineering genius, which included a train ride for those who wanted to travel around the 420 feet of track that surrounds the many miniature landscapes and dioramas of countries and places from around the world. A large fish pond with a viewing deck to watch the feeding of Koi, Talapia, Red-Belly Pacu, the Red-Eared Slider Turtle, and more. A museum-like showroom of model-craft airplanes, cars, trucks, trains, sailboats, steamships, rocket ships, many in plexiglass cases, were hand-made by the owner. Educational stations are spread throughout the property, including an up-close viewing area of large Tortoise's. A very good article about the property was featured in the November/December 2020 Ke Ola magazine entitled "Hobby Garden: A Happy Sustainable Learning Center." You can google the article by searching/typing: "Hobby Garden Ke Ola Magazine" and it should bring up the article.

Here is an opportunity to own a unique and one-of-a-kind property, which will include the majority, if not all, of the above mentioned items/features, "As Is, Where Is." Sale includes the original permitted 2 bedroom/1 bath home, together with the additional unpermitted rooms and structures that have been constructed throughout the years. A "must see" to appreciate all that this property has to offer! Adjoining 1-acre parcel also available (MLS 666839). Although no longer open to the public, according the owner, he has invested over a million dollars building his dream and the Hobby Garden, but teaching, sharing his knowledge, and seeing the children's excitement over all these years, was priceless.
