Description:
This acreage of land is located on the Old Northern Highway. It was originally planted with over 300 all spice plants and is naturally rich with hardwoods such as mahogany and zericote, as well as many other beautiful and precious species plants as most of this property remains covered with virgin forest. It is not far from the sea docking facilities at Bomba, and only a few miles from the Mayan site of Altun Ha. The well known Maruba Resort is a short rider further up the same road.

This site was originally the home of a well known local family, so there are some buildings on the property as well as a couple ponds. However, they have not lived there for some time and have decided that it is no longer very practical for them to hold onto it although they still consider it a precious part of their lives. They are prepared to sell to someone who will make better use of it.

It would be suitable for a farm, resort, or some other type of development/project needing a large parcel. The asking price is $350.00 USD per acre

Man In Thailand Selling Last Private Island In San Francisco Bay

Filed under: General,global islands,thailand — admin @ 5:45 am

SAN FRANCISCO — If you’ve ever wanted to own a piece of San Francisco Bay, now’s your chance. Red Rock, the only privately owned island in the bay, is up for sale.

A Bangkok gem dealer and attorney, David Glickman, wants ten million dollars for the 5.8 acre, uninhabited island in the shadow of the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge.

Glickman, who is 78, says he isn’t going to live much longer and wants to leave his wife in good shape financially.

Red Rock Island, which gets its name from the reddish-brown color of its soil, was privately purchased in the 1920s. After a few owners, Glickman, then practicing law in San Francisco, bought it sight unseen in 1964 for $49,500.

It is about eight miles north of San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf at a point where the San Francisco, Marin and Contra Costa counties converge.

Any new owner who wanted to develop the island would also have to spend extra money and go through an approval process involving state agencies in one or more of the three counties that have jurisdiction over the island.
