Spacious Country Home with Fertile Land and a Large Fruit Orchard
Located at the top of the ridge on a spacious open area this large country home gets a strong breeze from the surrounding Talamanca Mountains. Built by a United States contractor to be used as his personal home, the structural integrity of the construction is very solid. The 5,387 sqft two-story home, has large, open living spaces with many windows that allow in natural light and fresh mountain breezes. Adjacent to the home there is a large, enclosed workshop with a storage bodega for tools and a 6 car covered carport across the way.
The first floor of the home flows into a large open living space furnished with swinging chairs. This room includes plenty of space to add some game tables or comfortable sitting nooks that look out into the gardens surrounding the home. There are three downstairs bedrooms, each with its own shower, bathroom, and sink. Directly across from the main entrance, stairs lead up to the second floor.
Once on the second floor, you find yourself in another large room with high ceilings and plenty of natural light. The top floor includes a full kitchen, dining area, the master bedroom, two additional bedrooms, and four balconies that overlook separate areas of the property.

Fertile Land Planted with Tropical Fruit Trees on Almost 3 Acres
A large portion of the property is planted with trees, exotic flowers, and ornamental cactus. No matter what time of year it is, there are trees bearing fruit, providing a year-round organic bounty of healthy food. While touring the grounds of this country home, we were given a bucket filled with avocados, a bag of sweet lemons, a bag of mandarinas (juicy local lemons), a giant guanabana, and there was plenty more ready for the pickings! The land is extremely fertile and the cool mountain climate seemed to provide the perfect combination for a bountiful harvest. Located just behind the workspace and several enclosed coops used for raising chickens, geese, and ducks. This property is ideal for those looking for an affordable, move in ready home to live a healthy lifestyle in Costa Rica.
