This luxurious, true “turn-key” property is located in a gated community of just a few other custom homes, within minutes of downtown Nuevo Arenal and Hwy 142. Situated amongst mature, lush jungle foliage and fruit trees, this gorgeous home could easily be featured in an Architectural Digest edition. This 2 bedroom 2.5 bath home also features a large art studio (bonus room) complete with wash basin, and tons of natural lighting, which could easily convert to an extra bedroom, if desired.
Upon entering the home custom finishes are apparent throughout. The Great Room, with its’ high vaulted ceilings and custom woodwork, is the center of this amazing home. Custom wood built-in shelving lines one full wall of the room, and adds to the overall warmth of this wonderful open space. From any direction you enjoy overlooking the beautifully designed covered patio and lush, mature landscaping. Thanks to the numerous custom glass sliding doors leading out to the patio and beyond, outdoor entertaining is easy and welcoming. Natural lighting and air ventilation is plentiful throughout the home via the numerous custom windows.
The incredible gourmet kitchen is unbelievable! Custom rich wood cabinets are fitted with anti-slam hardware and each cabinet and drawer in this amazing kitchen is very deep, accommodating practically every appliance imaginable. It is difficult to describe just what a dream this kitchen is for those who love to cook and entertain. It also contains an imported Italian 36in gas convection oven and range with hood vent! Gas tanks are located over 30 feet away from the main house (the owners thought of every little thing, including safety). Double stainless sink, “pass through” window over the sink to the patio, stainless dishwasher and refrigerator, custom wine cabinet, custom hydraulic shelf hidden in the cabinet for your KitchenAid mixer… oh my goodness! Whether you are entertaining, or just making dinner for family you are always part of the conversation, enjoying each other’s company, and the view.
Also on the main level is an entrance to the garage/workshop, finished with shelves and an oversized work bench, and separate walk-in laundry room. Due to its’ size and length, the garage could be considered a 2.5 car garage. One side is long enough to store a small boat on a trailer.
From the Great Room, only half a level up, are the two bedrooms and bonus room, which all enter onto an open walkway, overlooking the Great Room/Kitchen area and front entrance.
The Master Bedroom is separate from the secondary bedroom(s) providing privacy, but also allowing for views of the interior and exterior areas of the home. The custom, quality built-in King bed and side drawers are part of the massive custom wall which contains built-in closets and drawers – again, all custom and reminiscent of what you find in the finest homes in Europe. Each closet and drawer were designed for beauty and well as for ventilation. The Master Bath has a large walk-in shower and separate oversized jacuzzi, bidet and toilet, custom marble topped wood cabinets with dual sinks and custom hardware. The private Master balcony overlooks the spacious, landscaped yard and has a small stairway from which you can stroll onto the main covered patio. All walkways surrounding the property are done in high-end, beautiful stone and are sealed to resist mold and slippage.
Just outside the Master Suite and second bedroom is a large walk-in hall closet, ideal for extra linen and miscellaneous storage. This desirable room is also built-in and hidden behind custom wood doors (also considered as an “Owners Closet”). Next to this closet is a bath for guests to use. Even this room is gorgeous, with its custom paint finishes and wood cabinetry.
The second bedroom, with en-suite bath is beautifully appointed, and has a separate sliding door exit to a private back patio. As with the Master, the custom built-in bed frame and drawers are made of gorgeous wood, and is situated between oversized custom closets and drawers. The adjoining bath has a beautiful stone, large walk-in shower big enough for two.
The third (or bonus) room, currently being used as the owners’ Art Studio, could also be a third bedroom, hobby room, or family/TV lounging area. With existing plumbing (a sink) in this room, a bath or wet bar could easily be added if desire. There is stair access to the large exterior balcony, which is just above the garage. This covered outside area is large (currently used for Karate lessons), and could be utilized for a Yoga retreat, or simply a wonderful terrace for relaxing.
Also on the property is a carport for two cars or one car and a small boat. In addition, the owners built another small “Bodega” right as you drive onto the property. Once again, everything has been thoughtfully designed and built, with no details missed.
It is impossible to adequately describe just how incredible this well-maintained, gorgeous home truly is. It really is one that you have to experience in person to enjoy the warmth and quality design that the owners have lavished on it. We feel anyone would be hard-pressed to replicate or find another like this home. Contact us for an appointment to view this lovely home – you will not be disappointed.
