580-Hectare Haven with Waterfalls, Streams
& Endless Potential
Looking for a secluded and beautiful piece of property? Look no further than this 580-hectare (1433-acre) oasis, split into two titles offering great potential. With the road ending right at the entrance, this property is a true hidden gem. Inside, you'll find waterfalls, plenty of water, a rustic house, and many flat, beautiful spots perfect for building and farming. The property is also home to a variety of native animals and a stream.
The flat spots on the property were previously used for coffee and fruit farming. The property has been known as a hiking destination for tourists visiting the Catamayo area. While the current owners do not use the land for farming right now, it is very possible to do so. For example, the property boasts potential for 18-20 quintals (1 quintal = 45 kg or 100 lbs) of coffee production with space for 20,000 coffee plants. There is also space for 8,000-10,000 pineapple plants. Imagine creating your own lucrative organic coffee or fruit farming operation here! The land can also be used to graze horses or cattle.
Even though the land appears very mountainous, several flat sections are found throughout the property. There are 3 separate flat 3-hectare sections on the land, one of which features the rustic house mid-way up the mountain. Near the house there is a spring with a spout where you can retrieve water as there is no internal plumbing in the house. On the lower part of the property, there are 40 mostly-flat hectares with irrigation. The upper part of the property has about 105 flat hectares. On the uppermost part of the property, there are about 4 flat hectares where helicopters have landed in the past to access the property. The views from the higher parts are breathtaking, so building homes on these spots to take advantage of the views would be fantastic.
With so many flat areas, you can build several homes or cabins for guests excited to explore the mountain, or even create an eco-community with homestead plots spread throughout the land.
