PRICE REDUCED! Built in 2018, this exceptional home is located just minutes from Nuevo Arenal and the popular tourist area of La Fortuna, where you can enjoy the many hot springs and spas, ziplining, horseback riding, fine dining, and so much more. What sets this home apart from so many others is the spectacular, unobstructed panoramic views of Lake Arenal (and beyond). Combined with the overall beauty of the home and property, it is truly exceptional!
This beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 bath 2,299 square foot home is nestled amongst lushly landscaped grounds that have been lovingly maintained and expanded upon since 2018. The 5,122 square meter (1.24 acres) lot has a custom stone pathway leading through and around the property, with numerous fruit trees and local flora on all sides. The property is a fine compliment to the gorgeous home. Throughout the home you will find warm modern finishes including tile, granite, lighting, large windows from which to enjoy the amazing views and so much more!
Two of the secondary bedrooms are located just beyond the large open Great Room and share a large bath, with a shower/tub and granite vanity. Each of these rooms enjoy great views and natural lighting from the large windows, and contain ample clothes closets. Each room accommodates queen-size beds with room to spare.
The Great Room separates the two secondary bedrooms from the Master bedroom and consists of an incredible gourmet kitchen and cozy family room. The oversized kitchen island is topped with granite and has tons of storage underneath. There is seating for 6 guests who can enjoy the fantastic views while entertaining the chef. There is ample cabinetry above and below in the kitchen, with a built-in storage closet to the side of the refrigerator. A double sink with custom hardware, gas stove and built-in dishwasher complete the kitchen conveniences. The larger than normal windows throughout the kitchen and Great Room areas bring the outdoors in so that you can enjoy them from either area. The family room is also open and boasts a lovely stone fireplace for those cooler Costa Rican nights. With the large glass slider doors just off the family room and kitchen areas, entertaining guests outdoors is a breeze.
Across from the kitchen and adjacent to the Family Room and main entrance is a custom Safe Room which also doubles as the laundry room, with added storage. The heavy iron door was custom made for this room and reflects Costa Rican artwork. This room is ideal for storing valuables while you are away as well as reduces noise on busy laundry days. It also houses an individual Insta-hot water heater utilized by the kitchen, laundry and guest bath.
The Master bedroom, just off of the Great Room area also has a large glass slider door so that you can step out to the large outdoor covered patio to enjoy your morning coffee, or to just marvel at the views. The Master bath contains a gorgeous tiled walk-in shower and double sinks with granite countertops, and a separate Insta-hot water heater. The ample clothes closet is behind the custom Guanacaste wood doors in the bath, with a privacy door between the shower and toilet areas.
To adequately describe the exterior of this amazing home would be nearly impossible! The owners have used professional landscapers to create this lush, stunningly beautiful property into a private paradise. The paved road leading up to the home is flanked by mature hibiscus shrubs, gingers and more. Once inside the private gate, you are greeted by a huge assortment of flowers and trees, all the while taking in the incredible views. The tiled walkway in the rear of the home runs the length of the large covered patio. From here, you will be constantly amazed at the pure beauty and tranquility this home offers. The covered outdoor eating area is draped by ever-blooming flowers and is the perfect spot for dining or enjoying guests. A custom stone step/pathway was built to reach the lower level of the property and joins with the other stone pathways running through and around the property. At the bottom of this stone walkway is a wonderful bodega in which to store landscaping supplies, wood for the fireplace or whatever you may desire. Owners purchased mulching equipment to process fertilizer for the many fruit trees on the property. These include, but are not limited to bananas, avocado, Mesino limes, mango, papaya, Guanabana, jackfruit, cas, breadfruit as well as coconut trees, black pepper plants, and a small garden. Many of the fruit trees are currently now producing, and were carefully selected by the owners. Just beyond the patio a cement bird feeder was constructed and is very popular with numerous tropical birds. There’s even an outside shower on one end of the home which is hidden by trees and flowers ensuring complete privacy. The water source comes from a spring and held in a well for the few residents. All rights to the water are guaranteed in the property deed. There is no cost for this delicious water!
All exterior and interior wood doors are solid and made of expensive Guanacaste, which is no longer available for construction. The home itself was custom built by a local builder familiar with our local climate and topography for the best overall home quality. Owners have continually maintained and upgraded the property since 2018 as follows:
2018 – Bodega built for supplies; custom cement bird feeder and cement steps constructed for safe access to the stone trails; first fruit trees for the Food Forest planted as well as numerous palm trees and hedges along the top bank; Safe Room constructed and added steel rods to cover windows therein; constructed outdoor shower; constructed a steel/plexiglass awning over the main entrance to prevent water hitting the wood door and added glass between the posts for extra protection.
2019 – expanded plants and Food Forest; replaced sliding doors on all doors with heavier and more secure locking systems; commissioned a local artist for the electrical service column just outside of the entry gate; covered bases of the patio poles with ceramic tile to enhance appearance; replaced entire roof with heavier gauge metal sheets for wind and rain protection.
2021 – constructed the wall running alongside the driveway to prevent any erosion; constructed cement run-off ditches as an erosion deterrent; added to the Food Forest.
2022 – constructed the bodega to house the mulching equipment and mulch storage; redesigned the steel main-entry gate and added an emergency side access door (in the event of an electrical outage); repainted the left side of the home due to excessive weathering from storm and sealed windows.
