About the buildings
A newly built cabin-style home is located the hillside at the midpoint of the property with a view overlooking the lower area of the property. The 1,550 sq/ft home features an open floor plan with vaulted ceilings and is constructed entirely of wood milled from the property, giving it an artisan, rustic feel. The home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, including a primary bedroom with private bathroom and walk-in closet. Windows and kitchen countertops were installed in March but final finished are still needed providing the buyer with the opportunity to bring their own vision. The house is connected to water and septic, with electrical installed inside the house but it is currently operating on a generator and for full-time living would need to be connected to the electrical line of the original house, have an additional power line or solar installed giving the option to live off grid.
Original pioneer style-home, which is typical of rural Tico farms, appears to have been constructed in phases with additional rooms added over time. The home has 3 bedrooms, one bathroom, a small kitchen, and enclosed patio with laundry. While it has power and water and has recently been occupied by the farm hands family, the home would require significant improvements for living, or could be torn down and rebuilt. This home is located at the front of the property, near the main road, has a covered carport connected to the front of the home, and is completely gated.
A covered walkway connects the original home to the detached workshop with secured storage, restroom, and covered work area, with electricity and water, providing of plenty of space for working on projects, and storing a tractor or other farming equipment.
In addition to the homes, there are two animal barns/shelters with running water, including a 16×20 animal shelter at the front of the property near the original home.
About the property
The property itself is a combination of flat land and gentle slope, extending up to the peak of a hillside and a small secondary forest with trails leading to a creek with a small waterfall. The lower, flat area of the property features several fenced pastures and two animal barns with water, making it ideal for permafarming or raising livestock. There is a private dirt road leading from the main road to the cabin and up the hillside to the peak of the property, ensuring easy access to all areas of the land.
