Location: Ballena, Uvita, Costa Rica
This is your opportunity to own the perfect compound for your family and friends or use it for a luxury commercial development.
The 17-acre Black Eagle Estate sits opposite a 900+ acre Natural Reserve on one side and undulating pastureland on the other. It’s situated in rich, fertile jungle grounds and among the incredible biodiversity, you’ll find monkeys, Aracari, and other flora and fauna that make the Estate its’ own nature reserve. With an elevation of between 240 - 480ft, the property boasts many panoramic views of the mountains, the ocean, and even the aptly named ‘Whale’s Tail’ at Marino Ballena National Park. (Free access for local property owners)
If nothing else, 2020 has highlighted the importance of having independence, sustainability, and the means to produce food and fruit if you so choose. This property features its own water source (with a 12,000-gallon water reserve), a functional 2,500 weir (for irrigation), and internal seasonal creeks throughout. There is an Apiary producing honey, but the property also includes an orchard that is already home to 150+ fruit & nut trees (planted in 2017), that is producing a huge variety and volume of food. There is everything you need for an almost totally independent existence. Even with fast broadband for those in a position to work remotely. Whatever your ambitions, the property really does have it all and is ready to go.
Rather than moving into someone else’s dream, the property is primed for your personal vision. The right level of infrastructure has already been taken care of, 14+ building sites have already defined and power has been applied at the entrance of each lot. It can be used as a single large property or further sub-divided into several luxury home plots, each with its own private access and un-obscured views. Keep all the lots to yourself and build a vast and integrated compound or sell the adjoining lots and live in paradise for a fraction of your investment. This property has the margins to accommodate a host of ideas.
The property also features a 135m2 HQ and 45m2 studio, perfect for guests, your groundskeeper, or immediate rental. Use the property to get away from quarantine restrictions, or as a home base while you oversee builds on other areas of the Estate. The Head Quarters has 5 bunk beds with 1 full bath and the mezzanine has a further queen bed. The Studio has 1 bedroom with a queen and 1 full bath.
The Black Eagle Estate is the perfect property to create a living environment for the post-pandemic era, for you and your family. As a property, it is already unique, but given global dynamics, it may well prove to be an even more wise and valuable investment.
