Mountain Estate Home Near San Jose with Pure Rivers and Ponds
Not your standard Costa Rican home, this beautiful 1 acre estate is perched high in the mountains at an elevation of 6,500 ft above sea level (average temperature; 60F -75F). Located in the province of Heredia, sitting on Barva Mountain and the Braulio Carrillo National Park, the property is surrounded by old growth forest. 3 crystal clear rivers flow through the grounds and feed into a beautiful pond system. With the cool, fresh mountain air and the forest environment, it is reminiscent of a summer chalet in Colorado, but this is pure Costa Rica. It is a wonderfully convenient location situated just outside of San Jose, Costa Rica's capital city. Even with the peaceful mountain ambience, the property is conveniently located only 30 minutes from the International Airport and close to the country's major hospitals, government buildings and finest restaurants. Due to the property's close proximity to the capital city, this home is regularly rented out as a quiet country getaway for San Jose residents and it is a quick & easy pick up for tourists visiting from overseas.
