- Land: 20 hectares (49 acres)
Here's what its got: 20 hectares of mostly usable land. Lots of trees. Lots of wildlife. A spring bubbling out of the ground. A year 'round river. Ocean & sunset views. 12 minutes to the grocery store.
Although, after living on this property for a while, you may not need the grocery store anymore. This is largely arable land. It does slope down to the river, but it does so gently. There are numerous natural building sites on the property. So a small community, large family or shared interest group can achieve a self-sustaining life-style.
The neighboring properties are large as well. One is an internationally known permaculture retreat where students and guests can visit to learn the various aspects to permaculture and enjoy the bounty that comes from the discipline while there. There are other such properties, some private, some commercial, many off-the-grid, thanks to the power of the equatorial sun and the proximity of the Ballena River.
The access to the property is 10 minutes up from the coastal highway on a well maintained public gravel road. Across the road from the property is a 1,000 hectare nature preserve. On the lower side of the property and across the river there is a 350 hectare private preserve. Nature is abundant in this area and is assured to remain so into perpetuity.
Who this property is good for:
- family compound
- off the grid estate property
- food cultivation
- shared interest community - yoga, health, wellness, organic etc...
Once you arrive at the property you are in the shade of gorgeous trees. The present owners have maintained the property well. There has been no tractor work done on the property so there are no perfectly flat building sites. What there are however, are a number of natural building sites with sufficient land around each one for privacy.
The property is at 800 feet elevation and is located directly inland from the Marino Ballena National Park. One can expect sunset views over the ocean from select spots on the property.
Some who have viewed the property have said that just viewing this property was one of the nicer walks in the jungle they've had. The river is gorgeous and features swimming holes and cascades & waterfalls.
Life's changes are the motive behind this property being for sale. The present owners had intended to move to Costa Rica and live on the property. They are ready to move on and so have priced it to sell.
