2 ACRES – 3 Bedroom Home Plus 2 Bedroom Guest Home In Gated Community With Great Mountain Views!!!!
Located in a gated community 10 minutes from the beaches of Dominical, Casa Paz offers everything you want in a vacation home or investment property. There is a 3 bedroom/2 bath home and a 2 bedroom/1 bath detached unit, which is ideal for rentals or when the family is out of town for extended stays. Part of the appeal of this property is the use of hardwoods in the construction of the home and furnishings, as the owner was a generational professional logger, carpenter and artist. The second level of the main house was used as a dance studio for years and can easily be framed into two more bedrooms. The house features an open-air design and stunning mountain and jungle views.
Both houses are solid and legally built with teak, ebony, and Alizan wood from the property. The trees were hand-picked for the house, and the owner cut and milled them himself. The 2×4 teak planks used to frame the walls of the house were once the owner’s wedding benches, making each piece of wood sentimental. All the wood has been treated for insects to avoid pest problems. Every beam has been bolted and anchored for earthquake safety. The open concept kitchen and living room are beautiful. The kitchen cabinets are constructed of a local pink cedar. The dining room table was made from a single Alizan tree from the property. There is also a wood kitchen island with an additional sink on the side and a bench on the other side. Wood beams and pendant lighting complete the look. The living room and dining room feature large tempered glass windows.
There are three bedrooms on the main level. The master suite features a king-size bed and a handcrafted wood desk. Inside the master bathroom, you will find cement walls that are finished with an Italian Ochre finish and carved by the owner, who is a professional artist. The shower is in the shape of a shell with an adjustable hand shower. There is also a large bathtub. This bathroom gives it a luxurious and artistic ambiance. The other two bedrooms include bunk beds in one room and a single bed in another, making it an ideal home for families.
The upstairs had been used as a ballet studio for years, and world-famous ballerinas and ballet masters danced there. The giant shutter on that level allowed access to the outdoors and breathtaking views while practicing ballet. The ballet barre is still up, but the upstairs has been converted into a family fun area with a trampoline, swings, and mats. In the corner, there is a wooden table and chairs, giving you access to the abundant jungle of trees.
The single-family home also offers some lovely furnishings. The kitchen includes many of the same kitchen cabinets, but a much smaller dining table. On the wrap-around porch, there are some wooden rocking chairs and a wooden table to enjoy the fresh air and scenery. The large bedroom includes a king bed and two additional beds, while the smaller bedroom has a sleeper sofa.
The outdoor area is lovely with a patio table and chairs, a hammock for relaxing, and around the above-ground pool. Fruit trees surround the houses and property and were planted when the house was built and are now starting to bear fruit. You will have an abundance of wildlife on the property, including exotic wild birds and a few families of sloths. Some of them, named Amable and Lucy, have lived there for years.
This property is conveniently only 10 minutes from the surf town of Dominical. It is only 30 minutes from Whale’s Tail in Uvita and 45 minutes from San Isidro.
