Affordable Home Nestled In The Rainforest Close To The Town Of Uvita
This affordable home was built in 2013 and the construction process was managed by the owner, a Canadian with over 35 years in the construction industry. The plumbing and electrical infrastructure was built to North American standards and the foundation was engineered above normal standards to withstand the test of time. With 2,000 sq ft under roof, the home has a unique divided layout with a primary 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom section and a separate 2 bedroom / 1 bathroom "mother-in-law" guest suite.
Highlights include 8 to 13 foot vaulted ceilings, large louver windows, custom iron french doors and a large covered balcony with a new BBQ. The balcony is the perfect place for outdoor dining or taking in the sights and sounds of the rainforest. From here you will enjoy bird watching, including Toucans, Aracari's, Hawks, Tanagers, Parrots and Herons, as well as the entertainment provided by the Howler and Capuchin monkeys. If you are a nature lover, you will love living here as these animals pass by the property on almost a daily basis.
