Clean Solar Energy Country Home On Green Rolling Pastures in San Isidro
Located in a beautiful part of the San Isidro city limits sits this 8.73-acre property with a rustic starter home, single-car carport, rancho with horse stalls and secured storage, and numerous mature fruit trees. The property was once a cattle ranch that has now been converted into an off-the-grid home with a large green pasture area planted with fruit-bearing trees. The property has legal water through the community ASADA as of February 2021.
With over eight acres of land you can create a compound or family estate. The pasture land that makes up the large majority of the property is primarily flat with a gentle slope making it perfect for expansion with additional homes, horse stables, livestock, or a hobby farm. Or, if building additional structures is not what you are wanting, create a massive garden and food forest. The soil and climate in the San Isidro area is very conducive which makes properties here perfect for agricultural uses.
There are quite a few mature fruit-bearing trees on the property such as avocado, banana, jackfruit, breadfruit, mango, water-apple, and various citrus trees to name a few. There are also numerous hardwood trees on the property such as Bamboo and Medina. Before the property was a cattle ranch, it was part of a coffee farm. Coffee is typically grown in rich, nutrient dense soil which is why the current property owners have had great success at growing fruit trees.
Two-Level Starter Home with Beautiful Tropical Views
The upper level of the house promotes optimal airflow. The two sides of the upstairs living and kitchen area both have a covered balcony to enjoy the rolling hills views and gardens below. Two bedrooms are located on the second level as well and both have beautiful jungle views with pops of color from the flowering plants.
The lower level of the home is an open air space with a sink. There is also a full bathroom (or, take a shower from the outside shower in the garden) and storage room where you will find the solar panel battery. There is a single solar panel on the roof that accounts for all the electric usage at the property.
The home is a little over 1,200 sqft and sits at 2,500ft of elevation. The home is built out of Medina wood, which is known for its durability against the elements and critters. There is a small layer of insulation in the home’s walls because at night, especially in the rainy season, it can get chilly.
