Monte Azul sits on a spectacular long stretch of riverfront (1.2 k) with acres of flat buildable land along the river and more acres on the mountain top with sweeping views. Located just 20 minutes from San Isidro and directly off the paved national road (Ruta 242). The 87 acres here at Monte Azul feature waterfalls, primary rainforest, a private high-speed internet tower, wildlife, and more.
The diversity of habitats here includes riparian zones, primary, secondary and recovering rainforest, organic shade-grown coffee plantations and open fields. The property offers expansive views, of the valley, and the Talamanca and coastal mountain ranges.
This area of Costa Rica is known for having a Spring-like climate with warm days and cool nights. At one time the owners operated Monte Azul as a retreat and at that time had a restaurant for the guests. This particular space is now being utilized for the production of their very successful artisan cheese business. There are 4 guest cottages here that sit steps away from the river.
The owners have done an amazing job with landscaping and situating the cottages around a meandering river. There are hiking trails that spring from here and encompass the property and also lead down to a magnificent swimming hole and waterfall. The main house is a very nice structure built with quality craftsmanship. It has an open floor plan with modular walls that give the owner various uses for the studio space. Large transom windows allow for lots of natural light to enter this space, which over the years has hosted many artists-in-residence. The unpretentious elegance of the custom-designed buildings and furnishings, perfectly compliment the inspiring natural terrain and climate of this magical place.
This rare gem is a perfect opportunity to develop a hotel venture, medical retreat or would be perfect for an investor with a more robust business endeavor, expanding the possibilities to compete with some of the best luxury retreats in the world. This is your opportunity to invest in a region that is thriving and expanding in positive ways.
