PRIME LOCATION: Located in Escaleras, which is conveniently located between Uvita and Dominical, in the southern zone of Costa Rica, you will find this 2.5-acre property. Along this same public road, (meaning this property has potential to be residential or commercial), are two exclusive projects, one being closer to the main highway, the Condominium Terraces at San Martin and the one a few miles above this property, Costa Verde Estates. Along this same road, is the well-known Jade House and the famous and delicious restaurant and bar, Jolly Roger.
VIEWS: The 180-degree ocean views are breathtaking, with clear views of Quepos to the north and southern views of Caño Island and the famous Whale’s Tail formation in Ballena. The sunset view is spectacular from the entire property and the ocean breeze is one that makes the Escaleras area so popular. You have great views, spacious property, ocean and mountain breeze. The property also has jungle views and mountain views from all angles. It is not uncommon to see monkeys, toucans, sloths and iguanas on this property.
LANDSCAPING: This stellar ocean-view property is gorgeously landscaped with native trees including fruit trees and bright flowers. The property has been carefully planned with stone pathways throughout the small rolling hills.
STRUCTURES ON THE PROPERTY: Included with this property, are two houses and a pool with a deck. There are also two gates and a newly constructed two-car carport.
ABOUT THE HOMES: They both include custom-tile roofs, newly installed electrical and plumbing, new refrigerators and on-demand hot water. The laundry room is located by the pool and includes a washer and a dryer. The type of the homes is open, outdoor-living style. In 2014, remodeling was done to one of the homes, which are fully furnished with modern materials and spectacular finishes such as travertine bathroom walls and an outdoor shower. The furniture includes custom-made bed, cabinetry and armoire. The other home, which is more Costa Rican traditional style is functional but has a more basic design. This cabin includes one bedroom, one bathroom, kitchen and a deck. This smaller house could be renovated for a rental, guest house or caretaker quarters. You could live in either of the two houses while renovating the other, or building a brand-new house on any of the ocean view building pads located on the property.
INFRAESTRUCTURE: Fiber optic internet available, Electricity installed on Property (in homes), water from the local community source, Satellite TV available (Sky TV or Claro).
PERKS: Location, ocean view, No HOA fees or regulations, organized community for road repairs (very low road repair fees approx. $200-$400 per year). Costa Rica has very low property taxes (0.25%) of the declared value. High rental income availability and recognized area for property managers (to manage rentals and bookings).
ACCESS: The access is through a public road that is gravel from the highway up until the last few hundred meters that is cemented. The direct access to the property has a cemented road access. There are two gated access areas to get to the Property from that cement road.
POSSIBLE USE AND DEVELOPMENT OF PROPERTY: There is room for more development (if that is what you want), or you can keep it as your own private haven. The property can be used to build several ocean-view homes, cabins/villas, bed and breakfast, hotel, wellness center, reforestation land/ nursery/ greenhouse or any other commercial or residential use that you wish to do.
Given that the access is a public road, the approved use can be commercial or residential and would also be eligible to do a Condominium development. The current topography makes it easy to create new building pads without investing too much in moving dirt and the natural drainage is already in place
