Located along the Rio Trojas above the town of Sarchi this is a unique property with a clean river, and natural year round springs with ample flat fertile farmland.

Most of the property is a productive working coffee farm with citrus, avocado, bananas, and plantains planted within and among the shade grown coffee.  There are are many herbs for home use growing in the mature shrub and flower gardens, near the main house and other outbuildings.

The original Farm has been divided into a gated community of 7 one acre lots.  On the remaining farm of 18 acres there are 7 additional lots that could be subdivided.  These lots are already producing coffee and several of them are planted with citrus and avocado.

Sarchi, the county seat of Valverde Vega, is an small artisan town of painters, cart builders and furniture stores. It is also the location of the coffee producing plant and a large greenhouse as well as a botanical garden. It is surrounded by agriculture of coffee and sugar cane and many vegetable growers. These factors help create a very safe place to live in a tranquil farming community.

The surrounding cities of Grecia and San Ramon offer the conveniences of midsize cities. One hour away is the metropolitan area of San Jose. Driving time is only 40 minutes to the international airport and 1 hour to the best medical centers in Costa Rica.

The home has several covered terraces that provide outdoor living space. The design of the home allows for shading and natural ventilation, neither cooling nor heating is required. This home is situated in the center of the farm in an open area  that allows views of the mountains  in all directions .

Additional outbuildings are located on the farm including  a vintage Costa Rican  home of 125 square meters, which is used by the caretaker. The other buildings include a barn ( bodega) and two cabins totaling 162 square meters.

Angel is familiar with every aspect of the farm and responsible for the daily operations. He is extremely resourceful and has adapted easily to many of the new concepts and projects promoted by the current owner.

There is a water concession for the existing spring for 3000 gallons a day. There is a water concession to allow us to draw water from the river of a hundred and forty nine thousand gallons per day this equals to 0. 45 acre feet per day.  The concession allows for year round use for raising fish and irrigation for the dry season.
