B22 66-acre finca, a promising eco-development with lots of pure water
The owner has not set a price but wants to consider offers.
The eco-finca has 5 buildings on it at present, providing a total of 7 habitations for humans and one for horses and a milking shed for cows.
The owner of this large ranch has worked for years on his dream of developing this ecological paradise and so he named the 66 acres Finca Paraiso Ecologico. Advancing years and family matters have slowed him down, however, and so he's listing it to see if anyone else is interested in such an enterprise. Two neighboring pieces comprise the property, one of about 35 acres and the other of 31. He will sell either one or both. The smaller piece contains the buildings seen above, a very large pond, and several areas he has semi-prepared for recreational or business activities such as a soccer field or tilapia ponds. The ranch, high in the hills looking toward the northern volcanos and the Tempisque River Basin, has no residents or cattle farms above it, so the streams and springs are pure. There are roads through the property and many sites suitable for building. There are several forested areas, one of which has trails. The ranch is in the Tierras Morenas area about 20 minutes from Lake Arenal.
The large pond is here glimpsed through the trees and in the distance appears the cloud-topped Tenorio Volcano.
Glimpsed in this photo looking to the north are the large pond and the lower left flank of Tenorio Volcano. The finca extends beyond the ridge seen in the approximate middle of the photo. To the distant left is part of the base of the Miravalles Volcano, which, like Tenorio, is dormant except for fumaroles and hot waters at the base.
This very large pond is filled with pure water from springs and a stream. This trail meanders through a forest of two acres near the buildings.
