Fruit Haven 10

Page last updated: Tues Jan 1 2019

Fruit Haven 10 is a planned 14-hectare property along the Rio Zamora, in between Fruit Haven 1-6 and Terra Frutis.

It is currently in Stage 1 of planning, which means we are looking for an investor to buy the property up front. The cost will be around $42k plus closing costs and initial development.

Access

In about 1 year the property will have direct road access. The property is bordering the Rio Zamora and is a 25-minute boat ride to Fruit Haven (to the south) or a 10 minute boat ride to Terra Frutis (to the north.) Currently, before the road is done, the only other access is walking about 20 minutes along the public path from where the road stops. However, the road is currently being worked on and should be finished within a year. Then it will stretch all the way from Proveeduría to the south (through Terra Frutis, FH10, and all the way down to Shiram Entsa, Las Peñas and back out to the main road.) There is already a public path going through all the properties along the river and the road will follow the route of the public path so no additional land will be taken. There is an area map below.

For the time being, we will include a small 22hp motorboat (about $3k) in the property development budget to easily and cheaply facilitate transport of workers, materials, and property owners/residents/volunteers.

Utilities

Electric is not installed but the property is not too far from a powerline so it could either be installed from that, or alternative energy sources could be used. Internet can be installed at this location. There is a large stream (2-3 meters wide) coming down the northern property boundary.

Property features and geography

The property starts at the river, with about 4 hectares of pasture. It goes slightly uphill to the public path. Then, after the public path, it is forested all the way to the back (east) side of the property. At the very back it begins to get steep as it goes up into the mountain. The property is about 100 meters wide (north to south) and 1400 meters long, so it has a long thin shape. It could easily be divided into 0.75 hectare lots and a community area, as well as larger lots for the larger shareholders. The good thing about the narrow shape is that conceivably, every personal homestead lot could border the stream.

Property development budget

When we do a group buy, we include in the share price a property development fund. This allows for basic maintenance of the property, construction and maintenance of the community area, and other important elements (driveway if necessary, electric, internet, water system, etc.)

The spreadsheet is in .ODS format so it should open in any spreadsheet program such as LibreOffice Calc or Microsoft Excel. If you are on a mobile device, you may want to install Google's "Sheets" app or a similar spreadsheet app with .ODS (Open Document Spreadsheet) support.

Property Map

This is an old map, made with manual measurements, and edited by us to make a few things clearer. When the property is purchased, we will do a complete land study and have a new map made, with GPS points, and we will mark the boundaries with permanent cement marker posts to prevent future boundary disputes.
