This 2.3 ACRES property, located in the flourishing FINCA MARANON neighbourhood just minutes from the red-hot property market town of Ojochal (EVERYONE is coming here), offers an INCREDIBLE opportunity – commercial, residential, or BOTH! The land straddles a ridge which overlooks the town of Ojochal and the coastal mountains – but due to the height of the property and the fact that Ojochal is built under a rainforest, you only see a few homes as most remain hidden under the canopies of the majestic towering trees.
You and your guests will enjoy more than 180-degrees of uninterrupted jungle views which terminate at the imposing coastal mountains – rising steeply to over 1,300 metres (4,300 feet) above the surrounding forests, the mountains are often covered in mist and dancing clouds.
And when it rains, long strings of waterfalls cascade down the nearly vertical slopes, you will see a number of them from this property.
A public road follows the hillside and enters the property near the start of a long, flat ridge. The ridge extends towards the coastal mountains and towers above the surrounding flatlands of Ojochal – you are above the highest canopies of the massive trees that dot the area in front of the property.
This long ridge offers a perfect location for the construction of a home, swimming pool, carport, and many other structures like a jacuzzi, joga or exercise deck, star-watching platform, gym, or others. Or perhaps you are a more commercially-minded buyer and see the opportunity for a few cabins, an Airbnb house, or other accommodation options? There is enough space to use the ridge as BOTH a commercial and residential space.
And because Ojochal is BOOMING, there will not be a shortage of business especially when accommodation is located close to town BUT immersed in nature and amazing views!
The owners have put a lot of time and effort into ensuring the lot is shovel ready – not only have they completed a survey and soil studies, but engineering plans for a 2 bed, 3 bath home with a long swimming pool, running along the length of the ridge, and a guest casita have been commissioned and completed. These plans can be obtained by the lucky buyer following the purchase.
The property touches a creek which runs along Calle D, on the side of the road opposite the property. This provides legal access to the creek and the possibility of utilizing the area for recreation – morning jungle bushwalks with a hot coffee in hand? Evening birdwatching strolls? Or perhaps you could cut a trail that leads into the wild rainforests below.
Now a bit more about the location – Ojochal is the jewel of the Costa Ballena area. As development shifts to the south the attention once directed at Dominical and Uvita is now strongly focused on Ojochal and surrounds. The town is famous for world-class restaurants – you will find them scattered around the Costanera, within the town itself and up in the surrounding hills.
Cafes, pubs, shops, recreational facilities supermarkets, medical and legal practices and many other amenities are found within just a few minutes’ drive – as are stunning beaches like Ventanas, Tortuga, and Pinuela. Mountain creeks, rivers, swimholes and waterfalls abound – including the famous Cascada el Pavon with a refreshing swim hole and a huge boulder hanging just above the drop.
