Sierra LLorona, located in the zone Santa Rita Arriba in the province of Colón, just 40 minutes from the City of Panama by the new toll road and 30 minutes to Colón, this beautiful, nature-near private reserve has been an international bird watchers’ destination for many years. Owned by a Panamanian corporation which has been in the hands of the same Panamanian family for over 40 years, the property is divided into two parcels.
The first is a generous yet comfortable mansion of unique design sitting on 12 titled hectares, with 4 bedrooms (including a huge master bedroom with its own sitting room), a library and a very ample bath. The modern kitchen with several storage rooms plus a laundry can cater for a number of guests. Numerous sitting rooms are situated throughout the house. The house has various balconies. An annex has 4 additional bedrooms and baths for overnight guests and there are staff quarters for up to 16 people with 4 more bedrooms and 2 baths. An 8kw-generator guarantees uninterrupted electric supply.
A pool and many additional building sites are located around the property. The surrounding grounds of over 136 hectares are in a pristine state of preservation. Many old-growth trees carpet the property. Excellent water is obtained from the numerous springs and creeks that course through the property.
Colon is now home port to two cruise lines. As there are limited places to stay before and after, this property would make a fantastic layover destination/nature reserve/private estate for the port of Colón where guests could relax before and after cruises enjoying guided nature/birding excursions or just relaxing. Or you might feel like living as the old Panamanian upper-class lived and enjoy life in the middle of a primary rain forest and a nature preserve.
The house and the 12 hectares are offered at $ 2 million and the 136 hectare reserve at $ 6 million. Both together would be available at $ 7 million.
