Prime location for truly sustainable living... Located halfway between the beach town of Uvita and San Isidro (the second-largest city in Costa Rica) you can have the best of both worlds living on this amazing 21-acre organic farm that sits atop the ridge that runs through the quaint rural village of San Luis. Enjoy the breath-taking ocean and waterfall views and fresh cool temperatures of being at an elevation of approx. 3,000 feet above sea level, with cool, mosquito-free evenings, and year-round daytime average temperatures of approx. 80-degree Fahrenheit/26.6 Celsius. There is also plenty of water for all your household and irrigation needs with ASADA water available and their storage on the corner of the property, a natural spring within the property, and a beautiful crystal clear creek running along the back edge of the property.
From the prime front ridge area of the property, you have a very usable and well-manicured area of approx. 6 acres which boasts jaw-dropping views of the 250-foot tall San Luis Waterfall and huge ocean views that span the horizon and include Isla Del Caño National Park; enjoying the spectacular sunsets will most surely become a primary ritual of day to day life here. This area of the property is also blessed with a dozen or so giant primary forest trees which provide a mystical backdrop and incredible wildlife viewing opportunities. Running approximately 200-meters (660 feet) across the front ridge, there is room for an amazing boutique hotel or wellness retreat, a few ample-sized primary ocean-view home sites, or a sprawling layout for one absolutely incredible personal mountaintop estate. With its elevation and constant ridge-top breezes day and night, you will never even need an air-conditioner.
The rest of the property is prime for food-growing, having always been maintained as an organic farm and full of great fertile soil, and plenty of water for irrigation during the dry season. Due to the rolling topography and multiple natural knolls, the property can easily provide for a half dozen homesites with great privacy and individual food-growing areas if your focus is on a community or retreat space, or the Finca can provide plenty of space for your own private horse farm. With existing road infrastructure, legal ASADA water, and ICE electricity to the site, you can begin designing and building your vision for this gorgeous property immediately upon taking ownership- the only thing needed is your own imagination.
The property is located near the quaint local village of San Luis, which is primarily known as a peaceful and rural coffee-growing area, with many small family farms producing coffee to be sold at the local farmers' markets (of which there is one for every day of the week except Sunday). Another new daily ritual here for you can include a short walk to the local pulperia (rural convenience store) to enjoy a hot cup of Don Emilio's famous coffee, ground fresh on-site just for you.
Topographically-speaking, the farm is almost entirely usable, and measures 6.86 hectares w/ title, plus an additional 1.8 hectares of possession rights on the back (entirely land-locked area) of the property that runs along the creek for a total of 8.66 hectares/21.39 acres.
If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind absolute gem of a farm, look no further.
