Drake Bay is the most popular eco-tourist destinations in the country.
It is the gateway to the Corcovado National Park and also Isla de Caño (Caño Island), a Biological Reserve
and rated by Skin Diver Magazine as among the ‘Best in the World’ and one of the world's newest hot spots for adventure diving. Named after the famed ‘gentleman pirate’, Sir Francis Drake. (for interesting reading see http://www.literarytraveler.com/articles/sir-francis-drake-pirate/)
Drake Bay is Unique and one of the most isolated communities in the country, accessible by boat, small domestic airline, or an adventurous jungle dirt road with several water crossings, Drake Bay’s jungle lodges are some of the most exciting in the World.
This lovely 2.5-Acre View property is located within the Maritime Zone, classified as the land behind the 50-meter public zone fronting the Oceans in Costa Rica and administered by the local Municipality.
The property, including an environmentally friendly wooden cabin is perched high on a forested hill with an incredible Panoramic Ocean View including isla del Caño (caño Island) in the distance. The view from the deck is breathtaking to say the least, the Ocean so incredibly close, the majority of the 2.5 Acres is Rainforest with old growth trees, habitat to Toucans and White-faced Monkeys.
Years ago there was a caretaker's house situated slightly lower than the main house, after years of neglect it was torn down leaving a wonderful clearing for a second Ocean-view structure. For an even more impressive Ocean-View-building-site, trek up several meters behind and above the small wooden house for a more demanding View!
On one side of the two and a half acre lot there is a heavily forested ravine sloping down to a small stream and crossing under the dirt road in front and running on top of the sandy beach to the Ocean, this water is pure spring water. This forested area has not been visited often so exploration could open a myriad of jungle delights. Hanging vines and Moss Covered Rocks are just a part of life here.
Huge boulder-sized black/brown volcanic-rock formations on the Beach below provide a sonic backdrop for crashing waves at high tide both day and night. The Elements in the area are to be considered ‘Raw’ and 100% Natural.
The small home is built with cabin type construction and is a simple two bedroom wooden house with a total of 978 sq. ft. including the deck. The bathroom features an open shower that is spacious including tiled floor and walls.
The kitchen/living room combination has three large-framed windows (9 smaller paned windows) opening to the front deck with a very Spacious Ocean View; kitchen floor is also tiled. The remainder of the house has wooden-floors and walls have teak paneling.
Bedrooms are well ventilated with large shuttered windows opening to the back and sides of the house. But the deck remains to be the main daytime living area, and to complete the Tropical Scene the deck needs your hammock and few tunes!
This property is for adventurous people that enjoy walking, in fact, town is nearby and the preferred means of travel is to take off your shoes and walk barefooted along the beach to the center of town known as Agujitas. The property is a walk-up, there is no drive-way, there is an agreement with the rear neighbor to use their road access which is a few steps from the house.
Although in front of the Ocean the beach does not front the property, there is a public dirt road which passes between the lot and the beach. But few people have cars or drive in Drake Bay, it’s mostly locals that live further outside of town that may pass doing errands, the road dead ends at the beach (my kinda town) and there is nowhere to really go. So traffic is not an issue and besides from the house and property you cannot see nor hear any cars driving by, so you truly get the feel of being isolated.
Underground electrical lines come from the electrical service roadside so there are no unsightly electrical lines In view.
Priced to Sell at 169,000, a beach front property for less than $20/sq. meter! ………….deal!
