    The Reserve at Dominical

    This irreplaceable, unique 12 acre property is located a short drive from the Dominicalito beach and within a small community of unique properties. There are only eight properties in the premier section of the valley, and this property is arguably the crown jewel of the valley.

    The main building site has a beautiful, forest-lined approach that opens to an expansive cleared area that is suitable for the construction of a special estate home, pool, parking, and grounds. The site boasts views directly towards the iconic “one tree island” which is the central, focal point of the vista.

    The owner will also enjoy the year-round sunsets on the water and close enough proximity to the ocean to see the ripples on the water in the bay below. The fifteen hundred foot high mountain towards the east forms an amazing backdrop and adds to the dramatic setting. There is mature surrounding forest with some spectacular trees and layered growth throughout the site. One of the most attractive features of the property is a section on the southern flank which is accessed by a trail going down towards a year-round creek, cascades, and seasonal waterfall which has an area that might be suitable for a guest casita, artist studio, yoga deck or similar.

    The community has careful zoning in place to ensure the long term integrity of the property values and proper management of surrounding land. This spectacular site is suitable for residential development with allowances for a house, guest house, caretaker’s quarters, and supporting infrastructure. Electricity runs along the property line, there is all-weather access to the property line and building pad and water is piped to the building site as well.

    Discerning buyers must see this property, as it’s one of the best offerings available anywhere in this section of the market given its special features, privacy, and magical viewscape.
