For any nature lovers this is the best real estate opportunity in Mal Pais Santa Teresa. The eco-friendly development is only a 1 min walk from the beach and a short stroll from the village center. A maximum of 10 medium-sized family homes will spread over 7 hectares of forest near the Cabo Blanco national park.
For sustainability and architectural harmony the houses are mostly built of bamboo and other natural materials. These houses will be constructed by the developer for the individual buyer and made mostly out of a special bamboo grown in Costa Rica. The layout and design of the bamboo houses can be customized to fit individual needs.
So far four houses have been built.
Over half the land, around 2 hectares, will remain protected green zone and the property will have a deed restrication known as an ecological easement so that the lots cannot ever be over-developed. No commercial activity will be permitted at the building sites. The common land area will have trails so that the owners can walk about to observe the beauty of the nature.
Building cost for the houses range between $1000 – $1300 /sqm depending on the materials and finishings.
