26 Hectare Nature Reserve, 3km Hiking Trails, Amazing Cedar Home with Pool and Views
- 100% reforested land from pasture!
- Type: Residential
- Style: Single Story
- Development Level: Built
Beautifully reforested 26-hectare, nature reserve property with a 5-bedroom home, each with its own bathroom. This land used to be pasture and the owner purchased the land 26 years ago and reforested the entire 26 hectares. This will be the perfect place to build a couple of bungalows for AirBnB as the property has 3 kilometers of groomed trail. With the large variety of native trees planted on this property, a large array of birds can be spotted daily.
The home boast plenty of room to build whatever you desire. The current owners dream was to set up a small facility to welcome school children from the city who do not get a chance to learn about the jungle. This would be the ultimate way to give back to the community. There is a barn already in place on the property and it could be used for your own horses to ride on the property or for the school children educational trips.
For the main home, it is made of local cedar and has an expansive deck with pool/hot tub/bbq that overlooks the valley. Next to the deck is a beautiful, locally decorated rancho, complete with an 1800's sugar cane grinder. This home is fully furnished and is move-in ready. As you walk thru the home you will find incredible craftsmanship around each corner, including all the furniture in the home. If you wanted your home to be Costa Rican authentic with quality furnishings, this is your home.
The front room is large and is quite different from most as it has a bar for entertaining that looks like a mini-kitchen. This home has it's kitchen outdoors as is tradition in Costa Rica. As you walk up to the outdoor kitchen you it resembles a local soda (small restaurant) as the kitchen is enclosed behind swinging doors and there is a table out front. A large ranch style table is also included inside the front room for the times you entertain guests.
The main feature of this home is the forest. If you do not know, much of Costa Rica's forest had been lost to agriculture needs during the early 1900's but the government has been doing wonderful work to protect the forest as 25% of the country is now protected land. This property is prime example of bringing back the land to forest and the property needs someone who will be a good steward of the forest and keep it protected for years to come. Maybe you will be able to buy an adjacent pasture in the future and convert it to more forest!
