Make this Artisan accented Costa Rica Rancho, your home. Live in the majesty of the Central American rainforest. Wake up every morning to the sound of toucans playing in the trees and egrets soaring across the sky.

In between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea is the quaint and peaceful city of Turrialba. With 150,000 people in the city and the surrounding areas, the city is home to shopping, education, and a hospital. For all other needs, Cartago is about 30 minutes away.

A Beautiful Costa Rica Rancho

Secluded on a private road, this home with 5 farm outbuildings is available for you to move into immediately. Adding a gate at the road is an option but is not currently wanted. Priced to sell. is a fabulous value and honestly, this home is a beautiful place to live. Make this home your private personal resort with no visible neighbors. Live there, vacation there, or run a business while filling your body and mind with nature.

Covered porches and walkways surround the modern rancho for shelter on rainy days.  French drains assure proper drainage throughout the property. This lovely Costa Rica Rancho is 2500 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths. Every room opens to the lush center courtyard with its tropical paradise pond. Stocked with Talapia and aquarium species of fish, you can catch dinner while having cocktails by the pond.

Schools In Turrialba

There are many schools in the area for both adults and children. Spanish is the primary language, but since Turrialba is a tourist attraction, a large percentage of people speak English as well. Children are taught English in school and Catie University has an International K-12 English-based school just 1.5 miles away from the house. A Waldorf School is also located nearby. 

Local Wood Used Everywhere

Throughout the rancho, you’ll find extensive use of the Costa Rican tiger-striped local wood, Laurel. Ceilings, eaves, wood-sash windows, wardrobes, and the kitchen and bath cabinets all are made of this lovely multi-colored wood.

A home remodel and large room addition to the home was completed in 2019. These rooms feature 9-foot tall windows to show off the majestic views surrounding the home.

Making Turrialba Home

Turrialba is home to over 400 varieties of birds that play in the trees around the property. Banana trees, flowering plants, and lush hedges abound. The property butts up to a nature preserve, and Catie Agriculture University is across the river.

Spanish is the main language used in Turrialba. Because Costa Rica is a tourist destination, many people speak some English. Children learn English and Spanish both in school.

There are so many possibilities to choose from while living here. You can enjoy days with peace and quiet or raft the exciting Class IV rapids on the rivers. You can also choose to create a home business or nurture a hobby using the 8500 square feet of outbuildings on the property. Equipped with water and power, you have many possibilities for usage.

You’ll notice on the internet all of the ads saying “It’s Never Been Easier To Become A Resident.” This is because the Costa Rican Government is trying to entice people to move to their paradise. Spend your days hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, rafting, rappelling, hang gliding, or exploring- there’s always an adventure waiting for you!

The Farm – Outbuildings

Previously used for egg production, these 5 outbuildings have versatility. All equipment can stay if you would like it, by a separate agreement. These buildings can also be used for horses and an indoor arena. Raise goats or pigs, raise chickens and eggs, or have your own project. Marijuana cultivation is not legal in Costa Rica.

Make an agreement with the owners and learn the egg and chicken business, if you want to. Again, this is the Land of Possibilities.
