You would be hard pressed to find such an amazing property with so much to offer! This particular estate contains two beautiful homes and a large workshop/garage/boat storage facility. There are additional ready-to-build lots available for a total of 13 lots for $1.5M.
The main home is 600 m2 or 6,458.35 square feet, is situated on a 5,221.83 m2 lot and is nothing short of a mansion. It was designed and meticulously built by the owner with architectural touches throughout. The interior contains seven (7) bedrooms, one of which is currently used as an office and 4 1/2 baths. The second home on this property is a 3 bedroom 3 bath two story home situated on a 7,012.07 m2 lot that also boasts beautiful Lake Arenal views. There is an oversized separate garage on the property adjacent to this home ideal for boat, heavy equipment or for a large workshop.
There are ten (10) smaller lots at the entrance to the main and secondary homes, each varying from 370.78 m2 to 773.90 m2, and one measuring 5970.20 m2. To the rear of the expansive property, directly below the main home are three (3) larger ready-to-build lots, each of which are in excess of one and one-half acres (5114.31, 6326.47, 5037.49 m2; each valued at approx. $100k each). Each lot offers incredible views, are cleared and ready-to-build with available water and electricity. As with the main home and secondary home, these lots have incredible views and provide privacy.
Main Home Master Bedroom the Master Suite is on the second level, and completely separate from the secondary bedrooms on the main level, opposite side of the home. The Master is reached via a spiral wrought iron stairway and across a catwalk. There is a magnificent mural at the top of this stairway that makes you feel like you just walked onto the streets of Italy. Just outside the Master Suite is a huge private living room space, made for lounging, reading and/or gazing upon the beautiful views beyond. Upon entering the double french doors leading to the Master is a hand-crafted bookshelf which also gives the bedroom and the jetted bath on the other side of the bookshelf extra privacy. The bedroom is engulfed in lovely natural lighting and neutral color schemes. The master bath is reached via a doorway from the bedroom, and contains the clothes closet, large walk-in tiled shower, bidet, toilet and double sinks with underneath storage. The Master also has a nice outdoor balcony for your enjoyment.
Kitchen this is a wonderful kitchen with lots of storage, all of the modern conveniences and space you need for entertaining! With its open concept you can enjoy visiting with family and guests in the adjacent living and dining room areas while preparing gourmet meals. There is a large garden window above the double sinks from which you can enjoy Lake Arenal views and the natural lighting it provides. Just across from the kitchen is the stairway leading to the upper level Master Suite and a secondary door leading out to the home’s private courtyard.
Main Floor Living and Dining Rooms these areas are large enough to accommodate many guests/family members and is just inside the main entrance to the home. The Living Room area is sunken and is flanked by a custom cozy fireplace. The large windows on either side of the fireplace provide those gorgeous views of Lake Arenal and the outdoor pool area. The Dining Room boasts a custom table/chairs set made of precious Guanacaste wood and is adjacent to the main living room. Both areas are open and spacious. Adjacent to these areas and just beyond the main entrance is a lovely half bath for guests.
Secondary Dining/Sitting Area across from the kitchen and through a secondary doorway is a unique Japanese styled sitting/dining area. The dining area is a step down from the sitting area and is separated by a ‘pony wall’ with a built in aquarium/glass plant showcase. This dining area also enjoys wonderful views of Lake Arenal and pool area just outside.
Secondary Living Room and Guest Bedrooms just beyond the Japanese inspired rooms and through another doorway is the balance of this beautiful home. The door opens to a very large, open living room bathed in natural lighting, sweeping views of the pool just outside, the interior courtyard, amazing lake views and to the secondary bedrooms just beyond. This living room contains a custom built-in bar and numerous doors leading directly to the pool or to the courtyard. This is a perfect space for entertaining guests, hosting parties and more. There is a small set of stairs across from the living room area that lead to the six (6) secondary bedrooms and baths – one set up and one set down. Each of these bedrooms are comfortably sized and uniquely individualized.
Outdoor Living Spaces at the main entrance to the Main Home, there is a nicely sized covered living area facing Lake Arenal with a custom waterfall feature that flows into a Koi pond that surrounds the outdoor space. As mentioned, across from the kitchen area and secondary living room is a large private courtyard, where herbs and prized flowers grow in two separate, large planters. Also contained within the courtyard is a separate building used for storage (a bodega) and an open covered space currently used for outdoor BBQ’s, dining and games (darts, etc). There are numerous outdoor living spaces designed around the home that provide wonderful views and watching our incredible sunsets!
Garage the property has a separate, oversized two car garage that also hosts two built-in rooms – one is a large laundry room with extra storage – the other is a bath with shower and a side entrance to the courtyard. Ideal spaces for cleaning up after gardening without tracking debris into the main home!
Secondary Home on Property Along with the incredible Main Home, this property includes yet another lovely home, designed and built by the owner. The home contains three (3) nicely sized bedrooms and three (3) baths, has a large open concept, and boasts views of Lake Arenal and beyond. There is a large covered outdoor space used for parking and outdoor dining. As with the Main Home there is a large, fully equipped kitchen which opens to the Living Room. Each of the bedrooms share an outside balcony located at the rear of the property. Adjacent to the Secondary home is the large separate garage purposely constructed for storing larger equipment and situated so that it does not obstruct lake views.
This magnificent estate and included lots is a rare find and has numerous options. The Main Home has been successfully used as a prominent B&B while the owner resides in the Secondary home. With the Master Suite ideally set apart from the balance of the secondary bedrooms it makes an ideal honeymoon suite. With the balance of the six secondary bedrooms located on the opposite side of the home and with private living room and access to the pool and courtyard areas, this is an ideal home for large groups or families. The built-in bar in the secondary living room could easily convert to a mini kitchen, and operated as a separate facility for guests as well. The Japanese inspired living and dining areas could easily (and wonderfully) convert to a library, yoga and/or meditation room overlooking Lake Arenal and the pristine pool area. Or, if you have a large family and want a separate home for extended family members or friends, you have ample, beautiful options. With the smaller lots at the gated entrance to this estate, you could design and build a magnificent garden to grow your own organic fruits and vegetables. With the larger lots directly below the Main Home, you have the option of reselling the lots at a premium, building more homes or creating whatever space you desire.
This is truly one of the more spectacular estates in one of the most-sought after locations in Nuevo Arenal. There is more to this estate than possibly be described here. With the breathtaking views, two beautiful homes, privacy, and additional lots all within minutes to central Arenal, this is definitely one that you must view and experience for yourself.
Both homes are available immediately upon closing and come completely furnished. There is one additional 1.5 acre lot adjacent to the three (3) below the Main Home that can be included for a total purchase price of $1,600,000. Please inquire within.
