Tropical Horse or Cattle Ranch 222 Acres Big Waterfall
Property reference: RCF 657
The Big Valley feel……….surrounded by Lush Tropical Jungle and Forested Hills….I get the Ponderosa feeling every time I come here.
From Golfito the Ranch is about 21 kms. and from Rio Claro (not to be confused with Rio Claro de Pavones) the turn off is about 3 kms. and then about 4 kms. of dirt road past the turn off.
The dirt road gets narrower and turns into a two-track dirt lane and can be a bit slick in the rainy season. A good 4-wheeled vehicle is a good idea here. The lane has a barbed wire fence across it to keep the cattle from roaming and it designates the beginning of the farm. There is a little river to cross with the 4x4 (rainy season) and then about 27 acres of African Palm to drive thru before arriving at the modest house.
After we cross the stream, the land surrounding the house and encompassing the African Palms is flat, with large pastures on either side of the house. These pastures are fenced to keep the cattle in and the stream flows behind the house and pastures. There are trees covering the surrounding hills on three sides that invite the realization that this is a big valley, Ponderosa style.
The African Palm will bring in about $1000/month after workers are paid. The harvesting is done every 15 days, so this is a working farm. One could keep cattle or horses; there is plenty of open pasture for grazing.
About 7 years ago nearly 15 acres of hardwoods called Amarillon were planted and an additional 10 acres of Teak. There is plenty of room for more planting or for fruit farming.
You’ll love the abundance of water here! There are several springs on the property and enough water drop for a pelton wheel as well for Hydro Electricity since the electric lines are about 3 kms away. The property is currently ‘off-grid’.
Since this is an end of the road property you won’t be bothered by traffic. In fact, there is only one neighbor past this property. He would use the same easement, but he has no house on his land and would like to sell his property after he straightens out the legal problems with his land……….which could be from now to never!
He has an incredible Waterfall on his property and since he doesn’t live here and it is a bit of a hike, he never visits or uses the falls. No one currently uses the Waterfalls………..but take a look at the pictures…a perfect place for hot afternoon cool downs.!
The House is humble and could be fixed up and used as a full time residence. Currently the owners only visit from time to time and may stay for a week or a month.
This farm has Potential that includes resident housing, communal style living, an Eco Lodge or a Horse Ranch. The options are unlimited.
