Seller is motivated – don’t miss this opportunity! Discover for yourself what a unique, beautiful treasure this property truly is! So much to offer those who are looking to live amongst pure natural surroundings including fresh water springs, pools, and hiking paths, all with complete privacy and security. This fantastic 1.483 acre property has everything for just about everyone! Just through the main entrance gate, there is an existing large 11 kennel, SANASA certified dog kennel structure complete with two side exercise yards. Although manufactured for dogs, this could also be modified to maintain horses as well. There is even a small storage shed to the side ideal for storing feed. The structure has a dog washing station as well as bathroom for the groomer. To the rear of the kennel you will see an independent 2,500 liter spring water tank. This facility alone would be excellent for operating a dog day care or boarding. If you aren’t in need of the kennel, this area would be ideal for building another home or casita as well since the lot is level and water and electricity is in place.
Continuing along the shady tree lined road to the main house, you will see another large fenced area, originally used as a huge exercise yard. Again, this could be used for its original purposes, or for horses or possible building site. Nearing the home, at the end of the road is a good-sized bodega, ideal for storing gardening supplies. The property slopes gently down to the main home, and is surrounded by a fresh spring water creek and nestled amongst vast lush jungle landscaping. The large hillside opposite the home and the creek provides abundant privacy and security and is frequented by hundreds of native tropical birds and occasional Howler monkeys.
The entrance to the main home is a single level with two entrances and attractive ‘catwalk’ siding running the perimeter of the home. The newest addition to the home is the personal natural pool between the two entrances. There is a second level to the home, which can be reached via the ‘catwalk’ that leads to an oversized area below. This versatile large space is ideal for an artist studio, extra storage or even a small apartment. It has walk-out access to the grounds leading to the creek and the natural pathways flanked by lush flowers and jungle foliage.
The main level of the home contains one very large Master bedroom, an open Great Room, two full bathrooms and large kitchen. The Master bedroom is very spacious and has a double glass slider door which leads out to the pool, and is flanked by numerous large windows for natural lighting and air circulation. The Master bathroom is located just around the corner from the bedroom and has been upgraded with high-end tile, sink and Guanacaste wood countertop. There is a pass-through door in the bath that leads into the kitchen.
The huge Great Room contains a pre-determined living room area just outside of the Master Bedroom and has a set of double glass doors leading out to an exterior terrace, complete with a small dining area. The Great Room was recently expanded upon to include a secondary full bath with upgraded tile shower, Guanacaste countertop, sink and flooring. This area of the home could be easily walled off to create a secondary Master bedroom. Outside of the Great Room and through the glass slider doors, there is a custom stone stairway leading down to the creek and a small ‘reflection/meditation’ pool. This tranquil private space is one where you will want to spend a lot of time relishing the sounds of the musical creek, basking in the filtered sunlight, and enjoying the numerous birds singing. Beyond this lovely area, take a stroll along the creek bank on the natural pathways winding through and around the property’s private jungle. Truly magical!
The home’s kitchen is very open and is designed for dining while enjoying the stunning views. On all but one wall in the kitchen, there are floor to ceiling, newly installed windows designed for maximum viewing of the landscaping as well as the outdoor pool and surrounding property. There is ample cabinetry for your kitchen items, as well as a small storage area adjacent to the kitchen stove and refrigerator. All countertops in the kitchen are easy-to-care-for solid granite.

The property is ideally located off of the main road leading into the quaint village of Tierra Morenas, which has all of the amenities you may need. Tierra Morenas is a picturesque town of green rolling hills, clear blue skies and consistent gentle breezes to keep you cool. Major shopping can be found in the larger town of Tilaran, which is an easy 20 minute drive. The bustling town of Nuevo Arenal as well as Lago Arenal are an easy 25 minute drive, where you can enjoy fine dining, shopping and entertainment. The town of La Fortuna, which is the main tourist corridor in the surrounding area, is host to Volcan Arenal, ziplining, white water rafting, waterfall repelling, dining and much more, and can be reached within an hour from Tierra Morenas. The Liberia airport, major shopping and access to most of our local beaches are approximately 1.5 hours away. This property is an ideal ‘private paradise’ away from but close enough to the hustle and bustle of larger towns. No matter what your interests may be, this beautiful property offers you the opportunity and versatility to explore and expand with ease.
