Address: 31-acre Bamboo Farm
City: Grecia (canton)
Square Feet: 12.7 hectares
The area is called Santa Gurtrudis Sur/Tacares and the property is 12.7 hectares (31 acres) of lush terrain. Several hundred meters of river front, very private land with great buffers to nearest neighbor with beautiful rain forest, wide open spectacular views, and a main paved road!
This could be a venue for your fabulous dream home or exclusive hotel, and it is also zoned for a yoga retreat, 300m2 residential lots or agricultural project. Perhaps the best concept for this prime land is all of the above!
One third of the land is currently planted in a type of bamboo called guadua which is used in construction and furniture among other uses. It is 1 year from the first harvest. Guadua produces about 7 poles per year per plant (25 meters) of which 15 meters of length is sold. There are 1450 plantings on the farm, a minimum of 9000 per 15 meter poles per year. This crop could be sold or used for construction purposes.
Imagine the possibilities of developing an eco-residential community based perhaps on a permaculture concept. There are a multitude of building sites throughout the property totally about 7.5 acres. The river spans the length of the land and there is more than ample water supply from municipal intakes as well.
The only building on the property is a container home that is inhabited by the grounds keeper. A container home community could be another eco-concept for this acreage.
And now for the best part. The owners are retiring and are selling this gem but retaining their home. That means they are offering this 31-acre parcel for only $399,000!
This is an incredible opportunity in a desirable area with great potential.
