Real Estate For Sale
Costa Rican Mountains 1 hour from the capitol San Jose & 1 hour from Pacific beaches

Located on 7.5 acres (3 hectares) of land, with 10 fully-furnished one-bedroom housing units, a 3 bedroom/2 bath house, inifinity pool, a 2500 sq ft wellness center, spa facility and breathtaking yoga studio, and main lodge with industrial kitchen complete with appliances, dishes, and utensils. With a comfortably furnished lounge area and activity room complete with dining balcony overlooking the breathtaking jungle, this property provides a move-in-ready start for a sustainable co-housing community.

The wellness center features 4 bedroom-sized spaces and 2 bathrooms on the lower level; and an expansive, open-air octagonal teak wood yoga studio space with durable Palmex roof and rain shades, plus kitchen and storage on the upper level.

Another 2 bedroom/2 bath house is also on the property, as well as a fully functional glamping tent with bath & shower.

Water is sourced on the property from an abundant mountain spring, and the available Wi-Fi is excellent.

The land is full of edible plants and fruit trees (mango, plantain, coconut, guava, noni and more), plus a large hydroponic greenhouse and free-range chicken pen with roaming space. You can harvest up to 200kg per year of organic tumeric and ginger. Along the jungle trails down to the creek bordering the property, you’ll find a re-forested area of 600+ semi-hardwood Pochote trees (quite valuable!) and other diverse flora in abundance.

The land can also be developed further into 5-7 additional lots for sustainable home sites, plus plenty of space and organic soil for more permaculture planting. Neighboring land could be available on both sides of the property for future expansion.

There is an infinity-edged pool with lounging area and bathroom, plus an expansive laundry/storage facility. Property includes everything you need: pool furniture, stocked kitchen, appliances, all furnishings.

The climate zone is considered “mountain dry forest” with definite wet and dry seasons; plenty of sunshine. From November to late April there is very little rain and temperatures range from 77 to 90F. In the Green Season expect sunny mornings, afternoon/evening showers, lush green foliage (the best time of year!) and temperatures between 65-80F.

The property is conveniently located in the rural central mountains, 50 minutes from the capitol of San Jose, and 1 hour from beautiful Pacific beaches. There is a beautiful waterfall you can enjoy, 10 minutes’ drive from the property.

The nearby town of San Pablo de Turrubares is a quiet and friendly town of about 1000 people. We enjoy a good relationship with our neighbors and have been involved in the community for many years, helping the schools and people through our non-profit Foundation.

The property is listed at $1,150,000 USD. Consider pooling resources among several of your community members to purchase this property.
