Description: This 10.25 hectare (25 acre) mountain property is a spectacular piece of land and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The farm boasts varied topography, half of which is flat, the other half gently sloping hills. This provides an array of options for private units for tourism or building locations for the perfect country estate. Numerous hilltops, each with their own vantage point, allow the buyer to take advantage of 360 degree mountain vistas and a view for 20 miles to the Panamerican Highway.
One large private building site with a stately driveway has already been cut into the property and is ready for any type of project. There are two year-round rivers with hiker-friendly cascades, natural bathing pools, and a private 50 foot waterfall that makes this location stand out as the dream home. There are spectacular rock formations along the rivers and property borders, with some walls of stone reaching up to 30 and 40 feet.
This property was previously inaccessible but has been recently upgraded with 2 km of semi-private road from the Calobre side. A new road from the San Francisco side is nearing completion, and M.O.P. has completed plans for a permanent bridge to improve access even more. Although currently off-grid, grid power is expected in the near future. Water is provided via community water, and is already connected at the farm with a line running to the first completed building site. There is no light pollution for miles around which gives the property the most awe-inspiring view of the stars at night.
The location of this property makes it an ideal spot for eco-tourism or your own private country home. Nestled in the foothills of the continental divide, it is located 11 km (7 miles) from San Francisco de Veraguas and 13 km (8 miles) from the agricultural town of Calobre. Calobre is 45 minutes on a paved road from Panama’s city of Santiago. It is situated perfectly for day trips to natural attractions such as La Yeguada Reserva Forestal, thermal baths, multiple springs and formations, and Chitra, known for its large natural swimming pool.
San Francisco is 20 minutes from Santiago, and aside from having its own array of natural attractions, also boasts one of the oldest churches in Panama. It is a tourist-friendly stopping point on the way to the quaint mountain town of Santa Fe, which hosts a cool climate similar to Boquete and is the entry point for the massive Santa Fe National Park, a popular destination for adventure-oriented travelers.
The property for sale is titled, recently surveyed and held in a Panamanian corporation for ease of transfer. The owner speaks English, and a Spanish translator is available if needed.
Seller is motivated and has priced this very unique property for a speedy sale.
