Eternal Springtime Mountain Refuge Costa Rica Compound Retreat
The property is nestled in the Rio Chirripo valley at an elevation of 1150 meters (3773 feet). It is about 20-30 minutes from San Isidro del General where there is a weekly market with lots of organic produce to purchase. It is about 1 hour to beautiful beaches. The property borders Rio Chirripo along its entire length.
This is an ideal property for several families or community who wish to live in eternal springtime temperatures on a property which has been free of chemicals for 12+ years, and Biodynamic for 8 years.
There are six houses, two cabins, a covered compost area, chicken shed with two pastures, goat /worm house with 7 goat pastures (included are 4 goats and 10 chickens), four Biodigestors, Zantrex solar/wind system with grid tie (hydro generator is on site but not connected), two steel storage sheds plus two other outside concrete sheds, with many tools. If animal husbandry is not a desired pursuit, the existing pastures can easily be converted into house sites. Houses can be bare or with some appliances such as fridge. All houses and both cabins are screened. Water is from mountain springs for people, and double filtered creek water for plants and animals. Hot water is gas or solar heated. The Biodigestors mean no septic tank maintenance, with the added benefit of some gas for cooking. There are many fruit trees. Oranges, Sweet Lemons, Limes, Banana, Cas, Guava, Water Apple, Plantain, Cacao, Myrtle Berry, Mulberry, plus Pineapples, Red and Black Raspberries.
There is a covered exercise deck facing Mt Chirripo (size about 30 ft diameter).
The property has recently been used as a holistic health center, so that route could also be pursued by new owners.
There is an orchard with mango, citrus, and banana trees.
