Here we have 6.25 acres of gorgeous rainforest land situated above picturesque Cochrane Village. With an elevation of approx. 2000′ above sea level, the sweeping mountain and sea views are nothing short of spectacular!
Nestled next to World Heritage site, Morne Trois Pitons National Park, this pristine property is bordered on one side by the road leading to Middleham Falls. Currently the road requires a 4WD vehicle, however, it is on the government list for repair, expected to start any time soon. There is also an old farm road going through the property that could be rehabilitated and returned to use.
The land is flat on top, then a semi-steep slope, with a large tract of flat land below. At the very bottom is a small amount of steep slope with old growth rainforest.
Orange, nutmeg, avocado, clove, pomerac, and numerous other fruit and nut trees may be reclaimable from years of weed growth and the destruction of hurricane Maria in Sept 2017.
Friable, young volcanic, mineral rich soil contributes to the very fertile growing conditions of this area. The land here has been farmed organically or has lain fallow for the past 15 years and there is ample rainfall in the area to cultivate most crops.
This special parcel of rainforest will appeal to the eco-conscious spirit desiring to create their paradise off the grid. Cochrane is a growing community of eco-conscious persons including an increasing number of organic and sustainable farmers and growers. If you are considering organic farming or permaculture, you won’t find a sweeter piece of land to work than this one.
This property lends itself to development of any number of projects in the Eco-Tourism sector. It would house a magnificent retreat, meditation center, spa resort, cottages, cabins, treehouses etc. The Health and Wellness sector is a rapidly growing aspect of Dominica’s tourist product.
Many business opportunities abound providing goods and services to hikers and visitors to the area, particularly as the property is on the way to Middleham Falls, a popular tourist destination in Dominica.
Public utilities are not currently present. Alternative energy like solar, wind or hydro would be most suitable and would complement an Eco-friendly project or home.
Roseau is about 25 minutes’ drive and the airport is about an hour away.
This parcel of land is being offered at US$265,000.
