This is truly a one-of-a-kind opportunity to own one of the area’s most tranquil and largest properties (468 acres) at a fantastic price! There are numerous surrounding undeveloped properties in the area priced significantly higher, all of which do not include two homes (one at 10 Ha priced at $2.2M, for example)! Much of property at Lake Cote was originally a large cardamon and macadamia farm, and many of the trees still exist throughout. Lake Cote itself is a pristine, somewhat private lake that boasts excellent fishing and canoeing. Cote Lake Ranch has sweeping views of both the lake and lush jungle foliage in every direction.
Nestled amongst the lush foliage you will find a main home and adjoining guest home. For many years, the groundskeeper has called it his home while maintaining both the land and the main home. This lovely guest home has 4 bedrooms and 2 baths, with an entry carport that accommodates up to 4 vehicles.
The main home is a cozy larger home with a fireplace, two living rooms, bar, kitchen, ten bedrooms, six baths, separate laundry room, outdoor living space with another cozy fireplace, separate recreation room with a sauna and ping-pong/game room and even an outdoor concrete pad for adding a yoga/meditation station, pool or garage – whatever suits your needs. Upon entering the main home, there is a large living room/great room with a gorgeous massive stone fireplace. With its’ wall to wall windows, you have a commanding view of Lake Cote and beyond. There is also a small bar in the corner of this room for entertaining while enjoying the views and roaring fire in the fireplace.
All of the bedrooms are found on either side of the hallway from the entry living room heading towards the kitchen and secondary living room. Each of the baths are also found on either side of this hallway as is the large separate laundry room. At the end of the hallway is a large, open kitchen and secondary open living room/great room. There is seating at the kitchen breakfast bar as well as a dining room table that seats up to 6, both of which are adjacent to the living room area. This secondary living room is also excellent for entertaining in its’ design. Just steps away from the living room area is the large outside covered patio with a small brick fireplace/oven in the corner. Outdoor dining is also enjoyable in this lovely space surrounded by lush gardens, flowers and trees. The custom decorative stone on the interior and exterior walls surround the home and adds to its overall warm rustic ‘lodge’ feel. Beyond the covered back patio is a smaller structure consisting of an indoor sauna and small game room. Should you be looking for a resort type of lodge, this area would also be ideal as massage rooms. The overall aesthetic of the home, outbuildings and serene surroundings makes this an absolutely ideal retreat and would not require a lot of capital to create/convert. Because of the close proximity to Lake Cote access, this property and home would also be ideal for a Lodge or large family vacation home. The home has been in the seller’s family for many, many years and the great memories made here can be your own as well. Please contact us for your private viewing today!
