This 8-acre property borders San Luis Cove and has a great hilltop building site overlooking the cov and Lake Arenal.
This is an extraordinary property with frontage on the paved highway to Tronadora in addition to considerable lake frontage. Although the national electric company has a 50-meter set-back all around the lake, at this place the water is only about 20 feet (about 6 meters) from the property and a path gets you right to the water's edge. If you're into water sports, you can pull up a skiff on your shore and use it to get to your own or a Puerto San Luis Yacht Club mooring buoy. You could also anchor your own swim raft right off-shore. Or you might put in floating dock such as the yacht club has. On the hilltop just above the lake, there are building sites with wonderful vistas.
Note: With the newly liberalized ICE rules, this property is a prime candidate for installation of a floating dock and small lakeside building upon application to ICE, the Instituto Costarrincense de Electricidad.
