Welcome to your Costa Rican mountain amazing retreat! Our home is situated on 10+ acres of stunning view property in one of the most beautiful valleys in the entire country. Ask the neighbors: the energy around here is infectious!Upon entering the private gate, you´ll notice the massive retaining wall to your right, which is known to many in the area as the ´Great Wall´. It eventually opens up to show the rest of our land, most of which sits above the driveway and extends to the top of the small mountain behind the house. The property encompasses vast open spaces suitable for pasture or further fruit tree plantation.We already have dozens of citrus trees, mangos, and dozens of other varieties.This piece is unique in that it provides 3 unique potential entries to the land – the primary driveway which is currently used (massive gate structure already in place), a back entrance tied into the service road which also has a smaller custom built gate, as well as access to a third road above the property. This positions the land as suitable for further division and private access. A fence encompasses the entire property.
Amazing Retreat in Puriscal, with Everything You May Dream About when Thinking of Real Estate in Costa Rica!
The house is situated near the front of the land, with at least 2 more ready to go building sites behind it. Another retaining wall sits behind the main house to further increase the utility of the space. Ample parking is already provided under a covered structure, with room for 2 cars. A small,lockable garage storage space sits at the back.As you approach the front door, you´ll be welcomed by the lush, green lawn and vibrant native flora. In fact, the house´s surroundings already include various herbs and medicinal plants, and the opportunity to add more are endless.The house itself includes a large, open common area with a dining table and living room. We really enjoy the high ceilings and open airflow, which is helped by the several sets of double doors that together can create a very outdoorsy feel, even while inside.The furniture is all quite new and tailored to be in Costa Rican style with a modern, comfortable twist. The flat screen TV has a DVD player for evening movie nights, and there is WiFi access throughout the house. The house gets cell reception for several carriers, which makes internet connection and staying in touch easier than most places in the area.The kitchen is mostly newly renovated and includes a brand new propane gas range and oven,sink and island/prep area. Cookware, a blender, a microwave, a coffee maker, and utensils would be included for you.Each of the bedrooms has a queen sized bed and vast floor space. Really though; this house is very, very open! You´ll notice as soon as you step in. We also have another twin bed and frame,as well as a couch that is great for sleeping on.The bathroom is accessible via each bedroom on either side, and the shower, which is probably as large as most bathrooms in the country, is a walk-in type with tile all around. Washer and dryer are located in the bathroom, but could be placed outside under the veranda.The bus stops right outside of the driveway, which can take you all the way to the beaches (roughly 2 hours), including Manuel Antonio and Jaco, which is the closest. Or, if you´re headed back to the city, Puriscal is just over 15 mins away and San Jose approximately an hour. A short walk (2 min drive) down the hill takes you to a natural spring pool and cute local restaurant. For a fraction of the cost of the same experience in the US, you can enjoy a relaxing day by the pool and a great meal prepared just for you.We have a great network of friends and associates in the area and would be happy to connect you with whomever may help to make this place your ideal new Costa Rican villa 🙂 Pura Vida,
