This large farm has been recently sub-divided into eight Hill Top building lots. These building lots are located near the village of Barroeta, just ten minutes from the city of Atenas and the new San Jose-Beach highway. So far two have been sold, and in this listing we are offering the top 4 pieces. The largest being 18 acres (7.4 hectares), the two other large pieces are 12.4 acres (5 hectares) each, with the 4th, top building lot, measuring 8,400 m2 or 2.1 acres.
The location is nearly ideal, with San Jose, the airport and the beaches just 30 minutes away. Driving time to Atenas is 10 minutes.
Atenas is a wonderful small town of 20,000 inhabitants and, according National Geographic, has one of the best climates of the world. In 2010, The American Association of Retired People (AARP) selected Atenas as one of the best 2 places in the World to retire. With an elevation of 2,800 feet (840 meters), the temperatures are close to perfect year around with no need for air conditioning or heating. The average daytime temperature on the farm is 28 degrees Centigrade (82 degrees Fahrenheit), with night temperatures of around 20 degrees Centigrade (68 degrees Fahrenheit). These temperatures are approximately 7 degrees Centigrade (13 degree F) cooler then temperatures along the Pacific Coast.
From all four residential building lots one has incredible views of the Pacific Ocean, surrounding mountains and valley.
Many different habitats are contained within this large farm including, forest, pasture, reforested areas, springs and creeks. Because of the many forested areas within the Cerro Atenas Protected Area (of which the farm is part), many birds like Toucans, Montezuma Oropendulas, hawks, parrots and the Guans are found on this varied farm, but also monkeys, armadillos, iguanas, and other wildlife are present.
Amenities: The estate property comes with water (its own productive water well), electricity and interior roads.
