Productive Hectare of Land with Water Source
Nearly a hectare (2.4 acres) of beautiful land FULL of fruit trees and other productive plants! This property is a great choice if you want to live a more self-sustainable lifestyle since it has so many existing crops and a natural water source!
Almost everywhere you look you will see something growing that you can eat! There are about 3000 coffee plants, 600 banana trees, and many, many other fruit trees like mangos, avocados, guavas, chirimoyas, sweet lemons, sour lemons, mandarins, oranges, papayas, and zapotes. Plus, there are other productive crops and plants growing like yucca (cassava), beans, sweet potatoes, and corn. Just plant a couple more fruits and vegetables and you will be able to “eat the rainbow” from your very own garden!
The views on the upper part of the land are wonderful! In fact, there is an internal road that leads up to this part AND there is an area where you can build a house! Just imagine enjoying mountain views from your patio and then meandering about your garden harvesting fresh produce!
Currently, there is a small humble one-room house with a bathroom on the property. Depending on your lifestyle, you could live here while you build another house.
This property has access to spring water that comes down a nearby stream. Another self-sustainable aspect of this property is that it has a solar panel connected to the house. Since solar is an option for electricity, you can get more panels and install them if you want to use solar for a future home.
