Hacienda Atenas Building lots

Most Hacienda Atenas building lots offer beautiful views of the west side of the Central Valley, mainly of Ciudad Colon and Puriscal and some property even offers ocean views. Others offer very nice nature views, in addition to the birds and other wildlife because large trees are abundant. All Hacienda Atenas building lots, though their size is minimal 1.75 acres have a much smaller building pad on top to take advantage of the views and the rest of the property is hillside, so you don’t really have to maintain most of your property.
