A true working hacienda ranch of about 170 acres in the beautiful country side of Costa Rica near Dominical beach and the mountain town of Platanillo. Located about 20-30 minutes off the paved roads you feel like you arrive back in time to a simpler way of life. This farm is an absolutely amazing parcel of land with a picturesque river running right through it and plenty of usable land for whatever your heart desires.
The estate home is like a country farm house out of the movies with much of the interior wood coming from the property. For example the home boasts teak columns, Zapatero floors, Eucalyptus beam, Melina (insect resistant wood), Cedar cabinets, and a table and chairs hand made out of Corteza (one of the best hardwoods in CR). Built as labor of love for a family retreat this hacienda is now available for the first time on the market. This is a unique property and opportunity to own a working ranch, while not sacrificing any of the comforts one is used to from the modern world. The home also comes turnkey and furnished!
Additionally there is guest cabin, green house, stable, storage for wood, and old original farm house that could be restored for another guest quarters. Some holes have been dug, but not filled with water yet; where you could do Tilapia ponds. Chickens for food and eggs could easily be raised, as well, as sheep, goats, pigs, and cattle. Tons of mature fruit trees throughout and close to the home. This could truly be a completely self-sustainable farm providing fruits, vegetables, meat, cheese, milk, eggs, fish, and more….!
The land supports about 80 head of cattle currently and is more of a hobby farm for the current owner, however, production could be increased for more profits. There are also some rough cut interior roads that could be improved and ample areas to develop building sites for more homes or lots to sell in the future. The pristine river with swimming holes and forests for hiking. Numerous lumber trees ready for harvest.
Self-sustainable family farm, yoga retreat center, eco-community, dude ranch, private estate, adventure tours and hotel, or whatever you are dreaming….
…..the possibilities are endless!
