For Sale US$450,000 - Homes / Condos, Lots / Farms, Single-family house
San Antonio, Escazu (Costa Rica) – Nature retreat/farm for sale with amazing views, in a hidden valley nestled between three large mountains that tower over the property. Like something out of National Geographic! There are 5 hectares (over 12 acres) of the main farm, plus a 2-hectare (5-acre) forest reserve by the river (the steeper part of the property).
There are two rustic houses. The 250-m2 (2,700-ft2) main house, with incredible views, has 3 bedrooms and two baths. There is also a 2-bedroom, 1-bath worker’s house. These could easily be expanded. They even have internet and cable TV.
Part of the property consists of a working Hass avocado farm with over 1,000 trees from 4 to 12 years old (with a lifespan of at least 50 years). Due to family problems, the last few years have had low harvests (5,000 kilos). With investment and workers (two full-time; one more at harvest time), they can produce two Harvests a year of around 30,000 to 37,000 kilos a year at about US$2 per kilo wholesale in the local market (always in high demand).
In addition, there are peaches, figs, lemon trees, beans, tomatoes, plantain and bananas. Basically any tree will do well there. Water is from natural springs, so even a trout farm would be possible. There are various terraces, so there are also flat areas for animals.
Located at an elevation of about 1,600 meters (5,300 feet), about ten minutes up from San Antonio of Escazu, in an area of forest reserve. The road varies, and most cars can get there (but a 4WD is recommended for the rainy season). Near the beginning of a path up to Pico Blanco. Fantastic for private residence/farm, yoga retreat, religious retreat, etc. Priced to sell at US$450,000 (previously priced at over US$600,000) It’s a must see (the photos don’t do it justice)!
