This is a beautiful piece of property that has an interesting history as a cashew farm on the North Pacific coast in the province of Guanacaste, Costa Rica. And yes, there are still many fruit bearing cashew trees!

This development property is 116.25 acres approximately half of which has remarkable ocean and mountain views. The remaining area has mountain and valley views. The infrastructure is in with several roads, electricity and water pipelines to approx. 30 ocean view lot locations however, further construction development on this property remains for a new owner. There is a master plan and a technical study for approximately 225 units to be built and there is approximately 1 km of road frontage that allows for smaller lots and commercial development. This road frontage is the primary route to the Liberia airport that has been paved in most locations.

Several spectacular sandy beaches like Potrero and Penca are only 2 kms from the property and the new coastal marina is being constructed in the nearby community of Flamingo (see more information below on the marina).

The title is clear.

Project Description:

An Eco-friendly project that features a residential community with a small commercial area for boutique shops, medical facilities and rooms for community events, including weekly farmer’s markets. Housing units are placed so that a green canopy is maintained in the valley portion of the community with pedestrian trails, gardens, and attractive social areas which allow the residents to enjoy nature, spectacular sunsets, with ocean and mountain views.

It is estimated that the community would grow to a population of 450-500, where green recreational areas, and native flowers, shrubs and trees are pervasive throughout the project, providing a restful and aesthetically pleasing environment for all to enjoy.

Target market:

Cashew Estates is designed to meet a growing need for people who want to live in a community which values the environment and a fulfilling and healthy lifestyle. One sub-group in this population is the increasing number of retirees looking for a better quality of life, where quality medical and dental services easily accessible and affordable. Costa Rica expects to attract about several thousand retirees from North America and Europe over the next few years to take up permanent residency in order to enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle.

Architectural Concepts:

The architectural style is a fusion of historical architectural elements from the area, featuring strong character, simple massing and straightforward use of natural materials with a clean modern design, with an integration into the natural landscape.

The views of the land will be incorporated so that the buildings are situated among an abundance of green foliage. This way, the view of the structures does not produce a displeasing visual impact on the water, mountain and valley views. Beyond visual aesthetics, our intention is to create bioclimatic and sustainable buildings throughout the entire project in order to avoid detracting from the ecology of the area.

Among the design concepts that will be included are water management, through sustainable systems. Wells, Irrigation systems, water treatment plants, detention ponds, alternative energy generation systems, enhancement of biodiversity though the use of native species to yield a more robust ecosystem, and the incorporation of pedestrian trails through secondary forest areas for the enjoyment of residents.
