This pretty 13 acre farm is nestled in the village of San Juan di Florencia on the road between Platanar and Vaca Blanca. It occupies an upwards north facing slope with a 2 acre plateau on the top that provides wonderful views of the Arenal Volcano and the San Juan river valley. The plateau could be easily subdivided into 5 flat lots while retaining 9 acres for farming. The plateau is accessed by a road at the west side of the property.There is a derelict farm house at the bottom of the hill with power and water available that would be a good place for a base to start construction.
The farm land is in very good heart with an array of coconut palms, mature avocado trees, and citrus and papaya trees. There is a small stream crossing the lower acreage that could be used to supply a tilapia pond. There are many Mimosa Pudica (shy plants whose leaves close when touched) on the upper plateau. There are monkeys, sloths, macaws, toucans in the general area; enough to satisfy the wildlife lover.
The farm is about 30 minutes drive to the principal capital, Ciudad Quesada with its excellent shopping, restaurants and hospital. There is also a comprehensively stocked supermarket just 15 minutes away in Florencia. It is also well placed for the Monteverde Rainforest and a number of other reserves.
I purchased this lovely property in 1996 with intent to develop it and retire there to write my book(s) on the balcony in that beautiful climate that requires neither heating nor air conditioning; regrettably a few illnesses and a couple of other issues got in the way and for now I must remain in Florida instead.
I look forward to hearing from inquirers who wish to adopt my dream! $189,000.00 USD
