Solar Vistas Green Development
Lot 1 – “El Gran Pochote” – The building site on this lot is a point with 270 degree views of the jungle, hills, and mountains, and overlooks the small seasonal quebrada (stream). It includes a second spot to build a guest house or carport, and a large flat area below for parking or additional gardening. This lot also overlooks the lake.
Lot 2 – “Vista Montaña”– This is a hilltop lot that has beautiful drop-off views of the countryside in both directions. This lot borders the stream and is ideal for watching birds and other wildlife.
Lot 3 – “Vista al Mar”– The best lot, this hilltop has space for quite a large house and big gardens. The views are 360 degrees of rolling hills as far as the eye can see, all the way to the ocean. The first photo below shows the ocean view. Consider that this and other photos are taken from ground level, so that the views from inside the houses, especially on the second floor or rooftop gardens, will be much more spectacular still. This lot also borders the stream.
Lot 4 – “La Cascada”– One of the most beautiful parts of the farm, “La Cascada” is named for the small waterfall that you will be able to hear for over half the year when the stream is flowing. This land is borderd by beautiful primary forest with huge vine-covered trees, and also has gorgeous views of the nearby hills and down into the river canyon.
Lot 5 – “Lago Vista”– This small lot is in the center of the development and looks across the lake. Its best feature is two huge, ancient pochote trees, close proximity to the community pool, gardens, and orchards, and the ability to easily fish for your dinner in the tilapia pond.
Lot 6 – “Vista Bonita”– One of the best lots – this hilltop has phenomenal panoramic views of the countryside, and distant views of the sea. The building area is in two parts, and is ideal for a stepped-design house. Views from a rooftop garden / yoga space will be exquisite.
Lot 7 – “Buen Collina”– This central lot has a large flat area, with nice views of the large trees on the river, and borders the community garden/lake area. it has a lot of flat area, so is ideal for someone who wants to have lush gardens and landscaping.
Lot 8 – “Vista Jungla”– See rolling hills extending into infinity, as well as distant ocean views from a second story house. This is one of the most interesting lots because it has a second building site lower down, as well as riverfront with large jungle trees.
