Affordable Whitewater Ocean View Home Located Comfortably In the Costa Rica Mountains
The home situated on 2.4 acres is located at 2,000 ft. above sea level with dramatic ocean views of the Pacific Coast, the Terraba river mouth, Ojochal, the islands outside of Marino Ballena, and the surrounding rainforest covered mountains. The view from the master bedroom's "wrap around" balcony must be seen to be believed. The temperature is absolutely perfect since the home is located just below the fog line which means warm daytime temperatures and cool evening breezes. You never need A/C – to the contrary, the evenings often call for donning pullovers, or cranking up an outdoor fireplace!
The combination of coastal vistas with cool midday breezes are unsurpassable. Over two-thirds of the community is forest; we have seen deer, peccary, sloth, monkey, leopards and many other mammals. The two species of monkey, the Howler and the White Face are seen daily; the Leopard much less frequently.
The entrance to the property is over well rocked road and the paved Coastal Highway is 15 minutes down the road. Great beaches are just 20 minutes away and you can also get to the small city of Pejibaye in just 30 minutes (over the ridgetop). Access to the coast is via two different roads, one from Tres Rios, and the other from Coronado, and both are now freshly renovated.
Built in 2012 With Impeccable Craftsmanship And Quality Materials
The home consists of a large upper level master suite, private large outside porch, and covered sitting room, over-sized master bathroom and walk-in closet, and year round sunsets over the Pacific from the master bed, guest bed, the living room, kitchen, two porches, the pool and the gazebo.
Constructed with concrete and steel beams with concrete structurally insulated panel walls. This gives amazing strength, longevity, and exceptional sound and temperature insulation, all with a beautiful finish. All the wood in the houses, including the doors, windows, frames, kitchen cabinets, etc., consist of teak and local “cedar” harvested from sustainable tree farms located nearby.
Other luxury finishes include granite countertops, vaulted ceilings throughout, a pool plus gazebo, ample terrace with pass-thru window from kitchen, kitchen appliances, a 322 sq.ft. garage and large car porch. An optional outdoor fireplace is also available.
