Luxury Ocean View Home In The Punta Mala Mountain Neighborhood South Of Ojochal
Located on 8.75 acres in the Punta Mala mountain community above the southern Costa Rican town of Ojochal, this luxury ocean view home offers a wonderful blend of modern convenience in a beautiful rainforest setting. For those somewhat familiar with the region, Punta Mala is an approximate 20-minute drive from the main coastal highway and located above the Tres Rios and Coronado areas. In 30 minutes, you will be able to dine at Ojochal's famous gourmet restaurants or visit a number of pristine tropical beaches. This property is ideal for someone seeking an upscale Costa Rican getaway that offers complete privacy without sacrificing convenience. The property is securely gated, has beautifully landscaped grounds surrounded by lush rainforest, and features gorgeous whitewater ocean views down the southern Pacific coast.
The main 3 bedrooms / 2.5 bathroom home and offset 2 bedroom / 1 bathroom guest house was built in late 2012. The concept was designed to take full advantage of the incredible views and the surrounding tropical environment. Outdoor entertaining is enhanced with a large (33 sq. meter) pool and a jacuzzi spa, both with intricate decorative tile. They are heated by a high output, high-efficiency Aqua Cal heat pump, and lit with LED lighting. The surrounding terrace is paved with imported Colombian stone. A poolside ranchero contains a sink, grill, refrigerator, and teak cabinets. The terrace and ranchero furniture is high-end aluminum cast Castelle with Sunbrella fabric. Covered patios are the perfect place to enjoy the gorgeous landscaping which is fully irrigated with an electronic automated valve system. As you walk the grounds, you will marvel at the wide array of tropical fruit trees and vibrantly colored flowers flourishing on the property.

All electricity for the home is supplied by a 40-panel, grid-tied PV solar system with micro-inverters (installed in November 2014 under the ICE pilot program and is not subject to the 15% usage-billing rule) with propane Generac 20kw backup generator with full auto crossover and monitoring.
