Acreage With Main House And 3 Rental Houses For Sale in Ciudad Colon, San Jose, Costa Rica
Tropical Mountains Meet Small Latin American University Town
Asking Price: $695,000 USD (Negotiable - Financing Available)
36 acre farm in the low mountains just west of the capital of San Jose. There is a 4 bedroom 2 bath main house and 3 smaller houses for rental or use as a family compound or resort. No herbicides or pesticides have ever been used on the land.
Finca Saramandaia drops from the entry gate at the road 450 feet to the small river that forms its southern border. The farm is a birder's paradise and is home to white-faced monkeys, sloths, anteaters, coatis, and even the occasional jaguarundi. The houses are all presently rented to graduate students at the nearby University for Peace and the owners live on the farm.
Coffee is grown on the farm, as is a variety of vegetables and fruits for the use of the owners and other residents. There are hundreds of banana plants in production, as well as limes, mangoes, a few avocado trees, pitaya, grapefruit, mandarina, sour orange, guava, and even a cashew tree.
There is water from the municipality, the houses all have up-to-date electrical wiring, and there is a good septic system for each house. There is also reliable Internet, presently at 6-10 megabytes per second, and the houses are cable-ready. Appliances., refrigerators, washers, and dryers, are all included, as are most of the other furnishings to be agreed upon.
Finca Saramandaia is located just 12 miles from San Jose, 17 miles from Juan Santamaria International Airport, 55 miles to the mid-Pacific Jaco Beach, and 110 miles to the Caribbean beaches. On a smaller scale, the town of Ciudad Colon, with its cafes and markets and access to public transportation, is a 15 minute walk from the gate to the finca.
Ciudad Colon itself is remarkable for its weather and friendly people. The town is home to people from at least 60 countries due to the presence of graduate students and faculty of the University for Peace. There are outdoor food and artisan markets on Tuesdays and Saturdays, where one can buy everything from fresh breads to fruits and vegetables to a good selection of cheeses.
We have owned this property since 1973 and are planning to relocate to a smaller home in the same area. Partial owner financing is possible with a substantial down-payment.
