Magical Jaris de Mora 3 BR Ranch Style Home on 18 Acres for sale. The property, a “sea of tranquility,” is on a ridgeline overlooking the western end of the Central Valley, just outside Jaris de Mora, only 30 minutes from Ciudad Colon.
Two acres are dedicated to the owner’s house and a caretaker’s home. The owner’s single-story home offers an open floorplan of living – dining kitchen, a covered terrace with an outstanding valley view, 3 bedrooms (or 2 + an office), 2 full bathrooms, and a laundry room.
The caretaker’s home is an original 3 BR campesino house that was restored in 2008. There is ample covered storage in the 6m x 6m carport and adjacent shed, as well as a chicken coop and hoop house.
This 18-acre farm has served as a coffee plantation and later as a cattle ranch, but the seller has turned it into a magical place for their retirement. He improved the property in consideration of the environment and society’s interests in sustainable and lasting ways without requiring much human attention by:
- Planting indigenous trees and shrubs that do not require maintenance after they matured
- Planting trees that supply food sources to the many species of birds in the area.
- Raising the water table to provide a greater water supply for ourselves and our downstream neighbors.
The property has a year-round spring, concessioned by the government (MINAE) and permitted until 2028 for water supply on the property. It is very easy to renew this permit.
Although most of the property is being left to return to a natural environment to support birds and wildlife, the areas closest to the houses are used to provide a variety of produce. This includes “café borbon”, an exquisite shade-grown coffee cultivar that is no longer grown commercially, a second area of about 250 “modern” coffee plants, mangos, bananas, oranges, various types of lemons, and mandarin oranges. They pick, process, dry, and roast all the coffee themselves. The caretaker is allowed to grow sugar cane, corn, and beans for his own use.
Are you planning to retire, or love to live in a rural area of Costa Rica where your neighbors still talk to you?
