This lot is located in the exclusive jungle-covered Phase 8 area which stretches over the foothills between the coastal mountains and Pacific Ocean. Away from the hustle and bustle of Ojochal and the Costanera highway, here you can see and hear the Pacific Ocean surf, watch the mist-shrouded mountains, enjoy numerous rivers and waterfalls, and be surrounded by the wildlife that Costa Rica is famous for – monkeys, toucans, macaws, and the majestic blue morpho butterflies are just some of your friendly neighbours. But if you crave an escape, Ojochal’s trendy cafes, world-class restaurants, pubs, shops, supermarkets, medical clinics, sport and leisure facilities (did someone say pickleball?) and amazing beaches are just a few kilometres down the hill!
The lot’s star feature is the size of the plantel. Up here in the hills, properties straddle the steeply rising slopes of the coastal mountains. Flat land is scarce even with creative earthmoving involved. Often the houses are limited in size and design due to the aggressive topography which makes the area beautiful but also limited in development options. BUT this is where our lot shines – straddling a lush valley, a HUGE flat area has been shaped and readied, a canvas for you to manifest your vision. A family compound, massive mansion and oversized swimming pool, or a sprawling hacienda with a guest house are some of the residential options. A savvy businessman will see a different vision – perhaps a replica of the hugely successful retirement communities located in nearby Ojochal? The land is big enough for a half dozen small retirement homes with a central common area, gazeebo and swimming pool. Or what about rental units or a small hotel? All is possible due to the size of the plantel!
And let me tell you about the land and its surroundings! The lot looks down a lush valley with views of the Pacific Ocean and the world-famous scuba destination of Cano Island. The sunsets will be spectacular. Below, a clear mountain river burbles down the valley floor, just a short stroll away. Above, the coastal mountains provide ever-changing vistas – thick in primary forest cover, they are often covered in dancing clouds and mists with majestic waterfalls (some hundreds of meters high) coming into view after rainfalls. Due to Costa Rica’s strict environmental regulations, the jungles surrounding the lot and river will NEVER be cut or developed – so you can be sure the rainforest surroundings will always be here for the enjoyment of you and your guests.
The owner has taken great care to prepare and secure the land. The plantel has been meticulously shaped, all drainage and water holding infrastructure is in place, and the access road has recently been laid and compacted. Although the access road is public, the owner has secured permission to install a security gate across the road because there are no other homes or prepared lots below the property. Fibre internet, power and water facilities are available to the property – so the construction of your grand vision can start with minimal delay!
