Located in Lagunas, one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the southern zone is a unique Costa Rica home. Built in 2007, this comfortable airy custom designed 2300 square foot house offers dramatic water and mountain views. A unique house that incorporates the outside into its interiors to create an expansive laid back vibe that is rustic yet finished. For the buyer looking for a vacation getaway or permanent residence with easy beach access, this 2.5 acre property is ideal.
The interior of this two-bedroom house one-bathroom is bright and airy with 15-foot peak ceilings and large windows in the living room. The house includes custom designed wood cabinetry, counters and bar throughout. The light wood creates a warm bright feeling in the house. The design details complete the home’s relaxed tropical nature and expansive feeling. From the front of the house, you can watch the sunset over the ocean while sitting back and relaxing in the evening.
The cheery blue tiled kitchen is designed with stainless steel appliances, and a unique hand carved wooden bar to create a chef’s paradise. There is also a well-designed expansive bathroom, which includes a custom carved wood counter top. The floors are tiled too. There are glass doors in the living room that open into a covered patio perfect for enjoying cocktails and entertaining while watching the sunset. Attached to the house is a two car-covered carport.
The 2.5 acres property includes mature fruit tress and expansive grounds that can be used for gardening and small-scale farming. There is a small wood cabin perfect for a caretaker, and a greenhouse that has grown organic vegetables for the last six years creating rich healthy soil to continue the practice. The mature fruit trees scattered throughout the property include: mangos, bananas, plantains, oranges, limes, lemons, plantains, guavas and coconuts. The property can be virtually self-sufficient when it comes to food production.
The home’s location provides much-desired privacy while not being too remote either. From the house, it’s a 12-minute drive to the beach, and approximately 15-minutes to Dominical. Everything is easily accessible from this mountain getaway. Situated up in the hills, it is also pleasantly cooler than the beach, which can become oppressively hot at times. An added special bonus, the property is adjacent to a five-acre parcel for sale. This Costa Rica home is an ideal Dominical area property.
