9 Ac. Rancho With A Private Waterfall For Sale in Tinamastes, Putarenas, Costa Rica

9 Ac. Bamboo Rancho Has Its Own Private 12 Ft Waterfall

Asking Price: $150,000 USD  (Negotiable)

Imagine having your own private waterfall on your property. The year round creek runs the length of this 9 ac. (4.5 Hectares). We've spent years having the property sculpted for easy walks, planted with guadua bamboo and fruit trees and plants.

The bamboo house sits at the top of the property and has a great breeze and view is breathtaking. It's very private but the town is nearby. It's less than 10 minutes from the towns of Las Tumbas, Tinamastes and Platanillo. It's centered 20 minutes from the surf town of Dominical and 20 minutes from Zeledon (San Isidro el General). Nestled between many organic farms/fincas, the local organic market held weekly makes it easy to shop for top fruits and vegetables.
The house itself is very primitive as we didn't live there, the Palmex roof cost $14K, but will last up to 50 years and will not nest insects, etc.

The drop on the creek allows for ample electricity generation with micro hydro and we're waiting on lab results on the water which we believe is clean watershed off a mountain range nearby as we've never seen ANY litter in it EVER. There are a couple of swimming holes off the large and smaller waterfalls. The creek runs year round unlike some others that dry up in the dry season. The home does need work but we've been unable to spend enough time there to do it due to medical problems in our family.
It's a lovely property, highly unusual in many respects, definitely one of a kind.
