A true exceptional and unique property, this is a private mountain, river, small lake, and ancient jungle farm in the hills behind Santa Teresa and Malpais. It’s one of the largest farms now for sale in this area.
When we write “private mountain” we really mean it. It includes an entire hilltop which perfect to build your private home, villa, or castle, with gorgeous 360 degree views all around.
The small pond is beautiful, shown in the photo below, but it dries up during dry season, as do the streams that run through the property.
It also has a cute little caretaker’s house already built. You could even live in it for a while during the construction of your dream home, or expand it into a nicer guest house later.
This property is suitable for people who want lots of space, privacy, horses, etc. It’s definitely a “dream” spot for a celebrity or perhaps a family compound.
This property is not on a public road, which means that technically it can’t be used for a hotel or commercial project. However, you can run a bed and breakfast here, as long as it’s a single building in which you live in… so you can rent rooms. You also have the option to subdivide and could theoretically make up to 30 individual lots here, each with its own individual rental villa, so it could work as an eco village or eco lodge too.
This is one of the most special properties in the area, but it’s definitely no a “turnkey” project. Like many of the best gems in the area, it’s a diamond in the rough, and needs the following:
1. Year round access: The property has year-round access to the front gate. Some work on internal roads should be done in order access all parts of the farm in all seasons.
2. Electricity: Electricity is available at the farm’s gate but would need to be extended to whatever part of the farm a new owner would want it at.
3. Water: The property has a hand-dug well with potable water. In addition, it has a 50 meter perforated well, which was found to have mineral content too high for straight consumption. A filter system could be installed to make it potable, or this is great for watering or agricultural use.
We can recommend excellent people to work on all these things for you if you purchase the property.
