Lovely 3 bedroom home with amazing lake and volcano views, the grand room is spectacular. It has vaulted laurel wood ceilings that soar to 24’ high and the room is vast, spanning from the double front doors (refinished) to the back of the house. There are new sofas, modern artwork and re-covered dining room chairs (guachipelin wood). The entire house has been repainted inside and out and is fresh and ready for a new owner

The kitchen is huge and all the cabinet doors and drawers have been replaced with brand-new cedar doors and slow-close hinge hardware. There are new poured-concrete countertops (like the bathrooms) and new ceramic backsplash. There is a brand-new stainless steel sink, faucet and spotlights over the sink, as well as a stainless steel stove and refrigerator. The kitchen features a walk-in pantry, too. The home is a split-bedroom plan. One one side of the great room is the master bedroom and bathroom.

On the other side are two generously sized bedrooms and the guest bathroom. All of the doors in the house are hand-carved guachipelin wood with various motifs on each one: a monkey in a tree, an iguana, a quetzal bird, and more. Guachipelin wood is native to Costa Rica and similar to mahogany in that it is dense and heavy, but lighter in color.

The master bathroom has been remodeled with a “grotto” shower of formed concrete to look like a natural rock formation with a pebble floor, a brand new vanity of cedar wood with a poured concrete countertop and double formed concrete sinks that look like tree stumps. In the guest bathroom, the shower has been re-tiled with ceramic that looks like natural slate and a vanity to match the master bath. The front porch spans the entire front of the home and is an ideal place to spend time enjoying the cool breeze off the lake and gazing at the lovely front yard full of colorful flowers, trees and wildlife. At least 6 different types of hummingbirds have been spotted while sitting on the front porch. There is also have a mated pair of oropendolas (a type of toucan) that enjoy eating the mangos and guayaba fruits from the trees. Frequently flocks of parakeets fly through and stop for a break in the fruit trees and sometimes some parrots, toucans and more. Residents will wake up to the sound of the Howler monkeys in the Aguacate river nearby.

One could build 4 or 5 more small structures on the property and still not be crowded. There is room for at least 2 structures down below the front garden and 3 or more up the hill in the rear garden. Alternatively, one could build a brand-new large home up the hill, and live in the existing house while it is being built.
