Location: Uvita, Costa Rica
Sea Ridge Reserve is a private, natural, 400-hectare, retreat in the coastal mountain range of Costa Rica’s Southern Zone, overlooking Uvita and Playa Ballena. The vast majority of its hundreds of hectares have never been disturbed by human activity and remain home to all manner of wildlife. The existing improvements were installed by a previous owner to establish a personal retreat and nature reserve, and to offer facilities for a limited number of guests, staff, and necessary equipment. More than 20 fincas, united under single ownership, are located in 3 clusters stretching from the base of the Diamante Falls to the leading edge of the coastal mountains. Additional parcels, which could increase the land area to 1000 hectares, may be returned to Sea Ridge Reserve control in coming years. Details available during due diligence.

The included residence at Sea Ridge Reserve is majestically perched along the ocean view edge of the coastal mountain range. Combined with its elevation of 2500 feet above sea level, the residence offers enormously expansive views of the entire Costa Ballena region of the Southern Zone, including the “Whale’s Tail” beach, Playa Ballena. Its monumental 30,000 SF includes spaces for living, exhibits, guests, nature research, reception, and offices. The entire structure is integrated into the terrain, floating over a series of pools and guided streams of natural water descending from a waterfall a few kilometers to the northeast.

Right at the heart of the extensive tropical rainforest and the thousands of exotic flora and fauna that inhabit it lies the 50,000 square feet, four-story main house of Sea Ridge Reserve. Due to its vast area and unique design, it can perfectly serve as an incredible educational campus for conservation studies, taking advantage of its prized location within a sierra-to-sea range in one of the most important biological migratory corridors in the country, El Paso de la Danta.

Sea Ridge Reserve also has considerable water sovereignty with many creeks, rivers, waterfalls, and an ample supply of fresh potable water via a nine-liter-per-second legal water concession. The rare chance of truly autonomous sustainability can be a reality here, with full water and food production sovereignty being possible, as well as great potential for hydro-electric power production if needed.

This offering represents one of the most unique opportunities to acquire a true legacy property, one that has untapped potential as a global model of sustainability. Sea Ridge Reserve’s next stewards will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire one of the most incredible properties on planet Earth, and create a world-class education and/or wellness center.
