The lower section of the parcel has very gentle topography with usable river side, cleared areas, flat ocean view sections, a habitable 2 bedroom 1 bath home, caretakers quarters, a large separate higher building pad and beautiful interspersed landscaping and forest.

The home was build with very high structural standards and even has some nice aesthetic touches such as a rare hardwood (Manu) deck which skirts all sides of the upper, residential level.
The views from the home are of approx 100 degrees of Pacific Ocean (blue water and white water) views and verdant forest below. The lower perimeter of the land has an undeveloped rising ridge that affords very nice ocean views and approx 5 to 6 stand alone home sites. This is all set against a backdrop of some of the most dramatic, virgin rain forest on the Pacific Coast with elevations rising upwards of 2000 feet above sea level. This guarantees the long term integrity of the property, privacy, abundant wildlife and clean water. This rare offering is less than 10 minutes from the popular village of Ojochal which is home to a growing restaurant epicenter and colorful expat community. The property is apt for a private estate, the construction of an eco lodge, biological research center or a small scale, low impact residential development.
