121 ACRES – Amazing Farm With Jaw-Dropping Ocean Views, Close To San Isidro And Uvita, Perfect Location!!!!!
- MLS: TIN105
- Acres: 121
The 49-hectare Las Lajas farm sits 1000 meters above sea level at the top of the San Luis waterfall. This dramatic high altitude location makes for a perfect climate with year-round temperatures in the 70s – a stark contrast to the broiling summer days in the beach towns below. A massive 350-hectare nature reserve borders the farm to the west and northeast, and the cliff defines the southern border. Despite the superior climate and privacy of this mountain farm, the beach is not far away. The beaches of the booming coastal hamlet of Uvita are only a 40-minute drive from the farm. The trip to the beach is also likely to shorten considerably as the Osa and Perez Zeledon municipalities pave this alternate route connecting the coast to the important inland supply town of San Isidro. Dominical and San Isidro are both roughly 40 minutes away by car.
Las Lajas farm is mostly old pasture, giving the new owner a great deal of flexibility in terms of development. The climate is perfect for growing coffee and a multitude of species of fruit trees. Many spots in these pastures have jaw-dropping ocean views, framed by the Morete River valley below. The Higueron river meanders through Las Lajas farm, before tumbling over the cliff, creating the 300-foot tall San Luis waterfall. Sitting atop the waterfall, in the wind-blown spray, taking in the ocean and the lush forests of the Morete valley, is like a scene out of Avatar. The current mayor of San Isidro grew up in a nearby town, so the road connecting Las Lajas farm to San Isidro via Ojo de Agua is in surprisingly good shape. The ease of access to San Isidro shopping, with its lower prices and greater variety, is also a strong advantage of Las Lajas’ location.
