Tropical farm with 300m waterfront
The property was laid out by the current owner over 20 years ago and has since been developed and maintained with great dedication. Numerous types of fruit and vegetables, which were mainly planted along the 300m long coastline, lay the foundation for an independent life as a self-sufficiency. This area along the coast is also where the 3.5 buildings are located.
The first building is above the water, and this is also where the main jetty is located. The house consists of a large room with a kitchen, sleeping area, table, an open living room area and a large veranda that goes around the entire house. The veranda allows you to enjoy the fantastic view to the full. The bathroom is a separate room at the rear of the house.
The second house was used as a community house, here numerous guests can be received. This house is about 50 meters inland and is built on stilts. The view of the bay of Tierra Oscura is absolutely fantastic and can be enjoyed from the open, covered veranda, which takes up about two thirds of the floor space of this house. The open kitchen is located at the back of the veranda. This house also has three bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in the rear area.
The third house is a simple, well-kept wooden house, which is currently inhabited by the Finka caretaker and her family. Casilda is a real gem, has planted the Finka's fruit trees and pruned them so that the treetops grow close to the ground and the fruit can be picked easily. During the quarantine period, Casilda took on the great job of caring for and maintaining the finca on her own full-time.
Another (half) building is a wooden house on the edge of the fruit-growing area. This house needs some repairs to make it habitable again.
All houses are sold unfurnished.
There is also a “rancho” in this part of the area. This covered shed is carefully covered with an insect screen and is used to process the products of the Finka (e.g. the cocoa and the moringa plant).
In addition to around 150 cocoa trees and the moringa plant (a superfood), there are also several citrus fruits such as limes, grapefruit and oranges as well as biriba, breadfruit, katuk (a leafy green vegetable) and various medicinal plants on the premises.
The buildings and fruit trees mentioned so far are all in the front area of the finca along the coastline. The rear area of the finca consists of several other areas. About a third of the entire finca is taken up by the tropical rainforest, with its striking giants of the jungle and the typically rich tropical vegetation. Another large part consists of a lush meadow, and other parts of the finca are inhabited by the 60 sheep or the two horses Socrates and Espiritu.
An extremely valuable unique selling point of this finca is the secure water supply at all times. Even with persistent periods of drought, there is no shortage of fresh water here. A river running underground brings water directly from the mountain regions above the cloud line to the finca. In addition, there are three springs on the site, which always carry water, and a river that flows along the southern property line.
On the coastline of the Finka, new topsoil is washed up with every flood, which was washed into the water by the rain from neighboring areas. This soil can be brought ashore and washed free of sea salt by the rain. Before the pandemic, this soil was used to process it with the manure from horses and goats into a top-quality fertilizer, which was then sold with the corresponding certificate.
There are numerous opportunities to grow other types of fruit and vegetables and to build additional accommodation on the site. It would be possible to realize a permaculture project. An estimated 50 people could feed on the finca.
