More about this property

Area 150+ hectares or 375 acres.

This Wonderful farm ready for development on Lake Arenal is an excellent opportunity for a large property in a high tourist area. The property borders the Hotel Los Héroes.

This property has a magnificent natural beauty, where the owners have conserved the flora and fauna of the place, being the undulating terrain, maintaining ninety percent grass and ten percent natural forest. In some areas, cultivated grass is special for feeding beef cattle.

Previously, the farm's production was dairy, but it was changed to beef cattle, where currently about one hundred and fifty head of cattle of different breeds are raised. However, it is very easy to return to milk production again.

On the property is located a house of 147 square meters, built about thirty years ago, which is maintained in very good condition, where the administrator lives. It has four bedrooms, a bathroom, a living room, large kitchen, laundry room, and a front terrace. Also, there is a warehouse adjacent to the house of 14 square meters and a 270 square meter galley, conditioned for livestock and farm animals.

Additionally, this wonderful estate overlooking the Arenal Lake has a pond with tilapia, internal roads, installed fences, and water tanks. The farm is bordered by the Pérez creek on the West and the Pirata creek on the East.

The farm has five springs, which can provide water to the entire property.

It has almost two kilometers of frontage on National Highway 142 between the Towns of Fortuna and Nuevo Arenal. Utilities are on site.
