Outstanding horse ranch that has been wonderfully landscaped to create the ideal retirement home or your perfect dream property in paradise.
The ranch has 2 separate 3-bedroom houses on it. One of them is a European-style home with an expansive terrace. The other is a more rustic Tico-style home which is currently used to house the caretaker. It also has a large stable that can accommodate 8 horses, and a swimming pool with a charming circular palapa beside it. The main house is set amongst a selection of fine ornamental plants and surrounded by an impressive mix of fruit trees including orange, lemon, starfruit, guayaba, mango, pithaya, nance, guavas, manzanas de agua, black pepper and ylang-ylang. Behind the house is a healthy cacao plantation with 50 mature trees that are 7 years old. The upper part of the property has views of Turrialba Volcano, making it ideal for a small eco-retreat offering low-impact activities such as bird watching and horseback riding.
There are 3 springs that provide bountiful fresh water all year round, as well as 8 man-made ponds that were used to farm Tilapia. A small sparkling stream runs right through the property, and electricity is provided to both of the homes by the local grid.
It is located a short distance from Highway 10 that runs between Siquirres and Turrialba.The nearest restaurants and local stores are less than five minutes away. The nearby town of Siquirres with all the necessary amenities is just 15 minutes drive away. This property sits within the Barbilla-Destierro Biological Corridor which is Costa Ricas most important Jaguar migration corridor. It is 2 hours drive from Costa Rica's main international airport, and just an hour away from the nearest regional airport at Guapiles.
This part of Costa Rica is exceptionally well suited to environmental and conservation activities. The Reventazon Valley is surrounded by national parks and reserves including Barbilla National Park, Guayabo National Monument, Turrialba Volcano National Park, Tapanti National Park, Rio Macho Forest Reserve, and the Pacuare Forest Reserve. The world-famous Pacuare River with the best white-water rafting in Central America is just 25 minutes away. Beyond Siquirres and also within easy reach are the boundless natural wonders of the Caribbean Coast, including the legendary biodiversity hotspot Tortuguero National Park.
