Standing at the top of the Ridge, you feel as though the Peninsula were a gigantic ship heading out into the vast expanse of the Pacific; before you are an uninterrupted ocean arc from the Gulf to the east, to the Pacific Ocean to the west, and, arrayed beneath you, 180 square miles of unobstructed hills, valleys, rivers, forests, and coastlines. Build a tropical retreat, and every single window will look out onto its own unique and breathtaking panorama. The property — two connected parcels with a total of 314 acres — includes two small plantations (20 acres of teak, 10 acres of Gmelina), extensive fruit orchards, primeval rainforest, streams and many miles of trails. The plot boasts two perennial springs with clean, clear, potable water, in sufficient quantity for residential and/or agricultural use.

Electricity is currently provided by solar paneling. While only 4 miles from the county seat, 6 miles from the and 7 miles from a major tourist hub, it is as remote from civilization as you can get and still be on the road system. This property is for someone seeking seclusion, a vast ridgeline rainforest property, a self-sustaining lifestyle, and stunning coastal views. [Asking price: $1.2 million]
