Hawaiian Ranch Where Lost Was Filmed Listed for $45 Million
Movie buffs with a cool $45 million to spare might want to consider a move to Hawaii: Oahu’s sprawling Dillingham Ranch, where parts of Lost, Hawaii Five-O, Kong: Skull Island, and 50 First Dates were filmed, is currently up for sale.
The 2,721-acre property is sandwiched between the island’s North Shore—with nearly 19 acres of oceanfront space spanning more than 1,125 feet of coastline on Kai‘ahulu Beach —and the ridgeline of the Waianae mountain range. The working ranch, established in 1897, is the largest land offering available for purchase on Oahu, and among the largest in all of Hawaii. It is currently used for cattle grazing and farming, and as an event venue and filming location; it is also home to a polo field.
The property’s dual-wing house comprises eight bedrooms, a 3,000-square-foot great room, and a 700-square-foot professional-grade kitchen. The house is adjacent to an equestrian center and the largest coconut grove in Hawaii, which is among the property’s most iconic filming locations: It’s the site of plane and helicopter crashes in Lost and Kong: Skull Island, and is part of the post-heist escape route in Netflix’s Triple Frontier. If that’s not enough, in addition to the cattle and other farm animals raised on the ranch, you can spot peacocks and ducks roaming the property.
The new ranch owner will be able to subdivide the property into 70 lots, per the realtor Cushman & Wakefield, with the potential to develop the land into a golf resort, housing development, or other multiacre hospitality enterprise, though previous attempts to do so have been unsuccessful.
