"Sun City"

Latvian millionaire realized
a fantastic project
near the town of Cesis (Latvia).


Having bought 3,000 hectares of forest in a hilly area, he built the "Sun City", where there are special rules for living in this paradise.


First, the three-storey houses were built from environmentally friendly materials and they are arranged in such a way (with terrain) that are not visible from the windows of neighboring houses.


Second, near each of the 300 houses there is a small lake and forest, which are included in cost of land (from 0.4 to 1.3 acres each).


Thirdly, all the houses are equipped with central sewer (it stacked with a special technique between the roots of pines and firs!), High-speed Internet, electricity. Each house has a geothermal heat pump to the well of 90-100m, which converts the energy  of the earth  into heat energy. This heat is sufficient to heat the house and for heating hot water year round. And only in severe winter days it is need to kindle fire, which is also available in every home. Garbage collection and other municipal facilities are also available.


Fourth, there is a single (special) rules for all residents of Forest City. For example, there is forbidden to install fences ... It is forbidden to have dogs on a chain - they are allowed to keep only the house. You will not hear the barking of dogs there. Deer and other animals roam free on the "city".


The cost of real estate in this wonderful place is not relatively expensive. For example, a site Tilbites with a three-story house  with all amenities, lake and forest area of 0.44 hectares is 94 000 euros.
