For those who would like to have their cake and eat it too, this is a one of a kind opportunity. This property offers you a unique opportunity to live in a private community and have your sustainable ranch down the road. The 99 acres waterpark include whitewater ocean views, deep valley views, river frontage, pasture land, and rolling mountainside.
The main homesite sits at the top of Escaleras overlooking the southern coastline with a direct view of the breathtaking Whale Tail and the Bahia Ballena National Park. The second home site, inside of the private community, has an extensive valley view along with the entrance to the ranch or waterpark. The home sites are connected through a private well-maintained road while the ranch can be accessed through the private entrance and internal roads.
No Building Nor Farming Restrictions within the Ranch
Currently, the ranch is being used as pasture for cattle and horses. The property can continue as a cattle ranch or can be transitioned into an eco-friendly retreat, fun waterpark, and personal play farm. The sheer size of this property allows you to have some fun with this ranch, with no building nor farming restrictions you can have a private quad track circling around the multiple swimming holes.
River Front Property with Hydroelectric Capability
The property itself touches the Barucito River that feeds the grand Nauyaca Waterfalls and Baru River. With multiple swimming holes and waterfall access points, the river provides a cool dipping hole and babbling lullaby for anyone within earshot. The pristine river bead has large boulders scattered throughout, forming a natural waterpark for you to enjoy!
For someone looking to develop a hydroelectric system the swimming holes, waterfalls and long stretches of flowing river are ideal to do the trick. Those interested can provide power to a small community or be a fun pass time. Water from the river initially flows into a concrete “transfer” box connected to a micro-hydroelectric system. The transfer box releases the air bubbles, ensuring maximum water pressure flowing through the system. The flowing water moves into an 8” steel pipe, creating the required pressure to turn the Pelton wheel in the turbine that in turn drives the generator. The water then flows out through the pipe and back into the river, returning back to its original trajectory.
Private Community with Special Advantages
The private community is an established neighborhood on the mountaintop of Escaleras. Apart from 24/7 gated security they offer shared green space with incredible ocean views, tennis court, and a fully functioning helicopter pad. For those that need a quality internet connection, the community offers fiber optic cables. This deal not only provides you with one property inside the community; but 99 acres with both ocean and valley view.
In-Between Uvita and Dominical
A big part of the charm that Costa Rica offers is the culture and conservation, that being said the communities are growing while integrating and maintaining a small-town feel. The town of Uvita is growing to be an essential community in the area, they are currently several private schools as well as public schools, a strong expat community, a variety of eating establishments and a new brewery. The neighboring town of Dominical has a strong coastal community with their world-renowned surf break, many beach vendors, an organic local grocery store and multiple yoga facilities.
