This lot in Chontales is simply perfect for your single family home in Costa Rica. Located just 10 minutes from Ojochal and 5 minutes from the coast and the stunning, pristine beaches, the property has 0.36 acres for easy maintenance, but is in one of the most private and remote-feeling communities in the region. It is also home to one of the incredible Stone Spheres of the Diquis – one of Costa Rica’s and the world’s mysteries of history. This nearly 1-tonne, solid stone sphere is thought to have been created by the Diquis people around 700 years ago. Many hundreds have been found of varying sizes, and this one is spectacularly large, and will make a great center piece in the garden of the future owner of this lot.
The property is mostly flat and surrounded by rolling hill pasture areas with intermittent stream, springs and native trees. There are mountainous and forest sections that protect the local water sheds, as well. Chontales is one of the Costa Ballena communities that have fully legal water access, meaning that building permits are easy to obtain.
Accessible by 2WD vehicle, this property is on all-weather roads, this rural area is mostly agricultural near the coast, with luxury lots and estates in the residential area at higher elevations, where this property is located. The ridges and upper sections have nice ocean views that stretch all the way to the Osa Peninsula on the southern horizon and to sunset on the northwest horizon.
The proximity to popular areas such as Ojochal for dining, Uvita for shopping, and Dominical for surfing afford the real possibility of residential or tourism ventures. The property is abundant in terms of usable areas, water sources and usage options.
