The 32-acre Lone Pine Ranch features multiple homesites set amidst a beautiful country setting in the Costa Rican mountains. The topography of the land consists of green rolling hillsides bordered by a clean freshwater river with a waterfall that cascades into a refreshing swimming hole. The setting is pure bliss. Flat bedrock along the riverbanks provides the optimal location for a picnic and some sunbathing. The swimming hole and waterfall are extremely private, surrounded by high natural hillsides that create a secluded cove.
The waterfall area is accessed by a secret trail leading from one of the homesites or a potential community area for a multiple home development. As an added bonus, this offering includes ownership of both sides of the waterfall and swimming hole giving you ultimate privacy and complete control of this magical place.
Cool and Dry Mountain Climate Ideal for a Perfect Night Sleep
The deep valley is not only incredible to look at, but also funnels cool winds up the mountain slopes providing a perfectly cool climate year round. The property sits at an elevation 1,700 ft above sea level. High altitudes such as this cut down on humidity, creating a crisp and dry environment. The temperatures in the day average in the 70°- 80° range while the evenings drop into the 60°s – ideal for some warm blankets and the best night sleep of your life. Although every person is different, studies show that sleeping in cooler climates is more fulfilling. It is easier to fall asleep, you stay asleep better, your body goes through its sleep cycles more effectively, and all together, lets you wake up feeling refreshed with a more energy.
High Biodiversity with Land Suitable for Sustainable Farm
The cooler climates promote biodiversity and enhance plant growth. If you are looking to live a healthy, self-sustainable lifestyle in Costa Rica, you could plant fruit trees all along the property creating your own personal organic orchard, providing a new harvest every season. The dry and cooler climate promotes a wider array of species as well as yielding a longer bounty and larger crops. With enough space to keep horses, cows, goats, geese, and maybe a few chickens. Currently, there are some cattle and horses on the property that graze on the lush pastures. A shallow well on the property provides water to the animal trough and could potentially provide water to the multiple homesites. The ranch is currently “off-the-grid” but electricity is located only 100 meters down the public road.
Located Close to the City of San Isidro
Being only 12 kilometers from the center of the city of San Isidro, this property is the perfect private getaway yet not too remote from the comforts and services available in a city. In San Isidro, there are several private schools and universities, a music institute, and different sports activities for entertainment. The city has several different grocery stores offering basic staples to gourmet offerings. The largest farmers market in Southern Costa Rica is also located here. When it comes down to handling business and working, the area has all major banks, many municipal and governmental offices, postal services, lawyers, accountants, and other professionals.
This stunning property provides the ideal setting for a personal retreat, a boutique hospitality business targeting ecotourists, or a home builder looking to create a private residential community on the outskirts of the city.
