Breathtaking Estate for Sale in Costa Rica

Searching for a large tract of land for sale in Costa Rica?

This is a unique opportunity to acquire almost 1,000 acres of breathtaking land in one of the world’s most biologically diverse areas.

This investment opportunity comprises a 988 acre (400 hectare) ecological preserve located in Escaleras between Dominical and Uvita in Costa Rica’s Costa Ballena which was acquired by the early visionaries in the eco-investment realm.

Located on a 2,400-foot tall knoll on the coastal mountain range, this exceptional estate encompasses mountains, waterfalls and rich habitats for all kinds of flora and fauna.

The estate includes the highest point with the closest proximity to the ocean in all the country, and perhaps all of Central America.

The mountain tops offer jaw-dropping views taking in 60 miles of coastline, the iconic whale’s tail reef, 3 of the biggest waterfalls in the country (Diamante, San Luis and Santa Lucía), Mount Chirripo (the tallest mountain in Costa Rica) to the east and the stunning Talamanca mountain range (running from north to south).

The Main House

The estate includes a main house nestled in the heart of the tropical rainforest.

Spanning 50,000 square feet, this vast house could serve as an incredible educational campus for environmental studies, taking advantage of its sierra-to-sea location in one of the most important biological migratory corridors in the country, El Paso de la Danta.

Other Infrastructure

In addition to the pools, fountains, and garden areas around the main house, there are also guest and staff housing infrastructure in place, as well as full-time rangers who focus on wildlife and watershed conservation efforts.

The magical forested areas of the property seamlessly intertwine with large areas of the property that were formerly cattle pasture, opening up the possibility for a mix of residential, wellness, institutional/educational, or resort development.

Live Off Grid

The preserve also has considerable water self-sufficiency 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 to live sustainably and truly off grid 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.

The estate’s next stewards will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire one of the most incredible properties on the planet, and create a world-class education and/or wellness center.

If you look forward to sustainable living, the future of the planet and sharing the blessings of one of the world’s most vibrant ecosystems, this preserve is a perfect fit.

Additional Land Also Available

For those interested in further conservation of this beautiful area, there is an additional 1,100 acres of the reserve available for sale separately.
