Lake Arenal, Costa Rica, real estate for sale
A82 17.4-acre farm with river, small house, pond - $138,400
At just $1.91 per square meter, this farm is a better bargain than most. It has other good features as well. It fronts on the main road between Lake Arenal and San Rafael de Guatuso, just a couple of hundred yards from the center of the neat village of Cabanga. This narrow front end is just wide enough for a small house and the private internal road that runs to the middle of the very long property where it reaches a farm outbuilding. Behind the roadside house, the property widens out abruptly and continues to widen gradually as it makes its way to the distant thick forest and the river that curves through a corner of the far end. There's a small tilapia pond near the front of the farm and scatterings of trees and crops along the way to the pastured low hill at the far end. The hill would make a good building site for a new house near the river and forest. A new owner could take their time doing something with this versatile property. The current owner will continue to live in his home on a separate small lot carved out of the front corner of the finca and thus will continue to provide security and assistance. The location is only 15 minutes from the large town of San Raphael, where there are lumber and hardware suppliers. San Raphael is on the paved road to La Fortuna and the major central towns and San Jose so this is an easy travel location.
