Escape to this is a small working Hobby Farm, 1.3 Acres, which has a truly wide variety of fruit trees and many vegetables and unusual flowers native to Costa Rica.
The main home offers 2 bedrooms, each with attached bath and large adjoining walk-through closet. You will quickly see that the layout from every room makes the most of the views and mild climate – Costa Rica living at its best! Pass through the tastefully designed eat-in kitchen with vibrant granite counter-tops, out onto the open-air living and dining area which invite easy, relaxed entertaining. You will feel enamored with the ever changing views of mountains and water, fresh air and sounds of nature. On the lower level you will discover a separate bodega/utility room on your right, and on your left a storage room, the smaller bedroom for either maid’s quarters or guest bedroom and a rancho/covered terrace with half bath and sink.
The guesthouse offers a studio-bedroom, kitchen and bathroom which then extends out onto a delightfully large covered terrace with views for outdoor living. Here there is an opportunity for the new owner to recreate a koi pond, or even a hot tub.
Must have a 4×4 as we enter the rainy season, my favorite time of the year. The view here at 5,600 ft. is breathtaking both day and night. My land over-looks the Nicoya Peninsula, Puntarenas and the Pacific Ocean. All while surrounded by mountain forest with no other homes in sight. The average daytime temperature is around 73-83 degrees Fahrenheit while the evenings are a cool 65-70 degrees for great sleeping. The air is so fresh and clean.
Located 25 minutes out of fabulous San Ramon towards Piadades Sur. 1 hour to the beaches of Puntarenas, 3 hours to Jaco and Tamarindo. 2 hours to Arenal Volcano; relax in the soothing hot springs, and only 3 hours to the Caribbean. 1 hour to San Jose and airport. Centrally located in a very small amazing country so you can go anywhere, do anything! Great food close-by!
In total 2,846 sq.ft. under roof (1,903 + 943 covered terraces): outdoor and indoor living areas are extremely well maintained inside and out while providing all the modern conveniences to maintain a comfortable standard of living. The size and layout provide an abundance of privacy which gives you the option to own this for your exclusive enjoyment or create a B&B.
The mature grounds and foliage are certainly inviting, and a sprinkler system helps keep the grounds fresh year-round. Two 5,000 gallon rain catchment tanks allow for further watering at the tail end of the dry season. Take in the mesmerizing views from a hammock on one of the covered terraces, or enjoy dinner on the screened-in veranda while the coastline lights up at dusk. Jaw-dropping sunsets are bound to impress during the dry season, whereas in the green season you’ll think you’re waking up in an aviary rich with countless bird calls. Many local hikes offer stunning views. If you’re the self reliant, romantic type with an appreciation of nature and a bit of adventure, you will be enchanted by “the feel” of the place!
