This magnificent 25 acre rainforest estate sits along the banks of the Rio Grande in the gorgeous Big Falls area of Toledo boasting over 800 ft of water frontage in Belize's most pristine and unblemished district. It offers an abundance of beautiful, wide-open spaces and troves of lush, tropical greenery imbued with an impressive array of towering hardwoods and a host of indigenous plants and fruit trees.
Roughly 7 of the property's 25 acres is already cleaned, cleared and developed with 2 self-sustained, family homes set among the trees as little as 200 feet from the river's edge. The homes are powered by a combination of solar energy storage systems with diesel-powered generators while above-ground storage tanks are used to capture rainwater taking advantage of Toledo's 160+ inches of annual rainfall... the most in the entire country. Both homes are built on solid concrete foundations and constructed utilizing the various local lumbers taken from the estate. Each has tiled floors, corrugated zinc panel roofing and large, crystal clear glass windows that let in tons of natural light.
A short walk to the northwestern corner of the estate takes you to the banks of the Rio Grande, a majestic river that begins in the southern hills of the Maya Mountains and meanders through to the Machaca Forest Reserve before making its way into the Caribbean at the southern reaches of the Port Honduras Marine Reserve. Here you enjoy unimpeded access to this year-round channel that provides both a source for irrigation as well as the perfect location for a delightful riverfront home.
The remaining 18 acres offer untouched, forested land with rich, fertile soil and good elevation presenting a great opportunity for farmers, developers and nature lovers alike. Potential use cases include agricultural farmland, raising livestock, a remote tropical getaway for travelers or conserving the natural landscape as a truly magical private escape.
