Fixer Upper Home in Platanillo with Extra Building Sites on 3.6 Acres

This offering in Platanillo presents a unique opportunity for buyers looking for a good deal on a beautiful property located relatively close to the beach and other local attractions. The shores of Playa Dominical are an easy 10KM drive from the property and one of the most popular tourist attractions in the area, the entrance to the Nauyaca Waterfall Tours, is located only 800 meters away. In approximately 30 minutes you can take trips to San Isidro, the largest city in Southern Costa Rica.

Even with the convenient access off of the primary road that connects the mountain communities to the beach, the location retains a private feel with the home and building sites set well back amidst towering forest populated with native wildlife. The owner has done a wonderful job with the internal road infrastructure. The long driveway features a concrete drainage system, stone retaining walls, and beautiful landscaping along the way.

Other infrastructure on the property includes an AYA public water supply plus telephone, cable, and electric services. Another highlight is a pure freshwater spring that flows year-round, and it is set up with pumps and storage. You could purchase raw land in the Platanillo area, but the great advantage with this offering is that all of the heavy lifting regarding infrastructure and permitting has been completed already – saving both a significant amount of time and money.

The property includes a starter home and two extra building sites for expansion. Built primarily from concrete and local teak hardwood, the rustic home will provide lodging while you create your own personal paradise in Costa Rica. The home requires finishing touches but the majority of the work has been completed. The layout includes 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen, a dining room, an office, a laundry area, a covered front porch, spacious backyard, stone walkways, and a second-floor that can be used as an open loft entertaining space or closed off for a private third bedroom. The home is selling unfurnished with all of the owner’s belongings removed, thereby creating a new environment for you to make your own.

Beautiful Grounds Planted With Organic Fruit Trees and Ornamental Plants

Build extra homes, add a pool, or create a small hobby farm with organic fruits and vegetables. The land is already planted with a variety of fruit trees such as Oranges, Limes, Guanábana, Avocado, Mango, Banana, Mandarina, Yuca, Coconut, and seven species of Palms. Colorful ornamental plants established around the property include maracas, gingers, and vibrant heliconias. With all of the open usable space and the established infrastructure, this property presents a beautiful canvas that is ready for you to customize to suit your needs.

While we don’t consider this property quite “move in ready” for the majority of our website audience, it is a great fit for a budget-minded buyer who is willing to roll up their sleeves to create something special. The seller is highly motivated and is looking for offers. The asking price for this property in Platanillo is very affordable and all of the work done here creates great value and is a real time saver!
