Cozy home on Big Creek
The titled property has an area of 1700 square meters and is located in a very pleasant location on Big Creek, on the main island of the archipelago: Isla Colon. The area is ideally located to be close to the village, but away from the hustle and bustle of the village. You can cover the 5 kilometers to the village in a pleasant 8 minutes by motorized vehicle, or you can take your time and enjoy the journey into the village during a leisurely 15-minute bike ride along the idyllic coast.
The plot as a whole is on a slope, and offers the possibility of building more houses, from the top one also has a sea view. The footpath to the paved main road and to the sea is 400 meters long, so the property is slightly offset from the main road in the back of a cul-de-sac. This shields you from street noise in your house and allows you to enjoy nature in peace. Due to its optimal location, the area at Big Creek is one of the most expensive residential areas on the island of Colon, numerous resettlers have settled in this area and they have several ocean lounges / restaurants nearby, as well as internationally known surf spots (Tiger Tail, Paunch, Dumpers and Mini Left). From your solidly built cozy house on the hillside you have a fantastic view of the green of the tropical vegetation, you hear the call of the strawberry frogs and you can watch monkeys and numerous birds (e.g. oropendulas, hummingbirds, various parrots and toucans). Furthermore, you will have visits from agoutis and armadillos from time to time. The upper level of the house is the living area, which consists of a large room and the bathroom. The room can be opened through numerous large hinged windows so that fantastic ventilation is created and a feeling of being “in nature”. Large doors also allow the house to be opened to the veranda. On the lower level of the house there is a bodega (a tool shed), which offers you a large storage space. The second half of the lower level is currently an open room, but can be converted into an additional room with little effort.
The water supply is currently provided by a rainwater collection system and a water treatment system with filters. There is a 2500 liter tank for storing the water. In a few months, a pump will also be put into operation, which will deliver well water in drinking water quality to the surrounding houses. Power is supplied by public electricity, which makes the installation and maintenance of a solar system or generator superfluous. The utility bill is typically around $ 20 a month. We would be happy to advise you in detail on the possibilities and potential of these properties!
