This brand new, affordable starter home is nestled in the lush rolling hills of Platanillo and has jaw-dropping valley views from every window in the house. The house is set up to welcome in the natural light, fresh air, and invites you to spend time with one another. The kitchen and living room are one giant room with floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors. The house has two bedrooms and two bathrooms with brand-new AC units in both bedrooms and is a split floor plan also giving you privacy from your guests.
The property is easy to access with 2WD which is amazing for the view you get from the kitchen. The property sits at a higher elevation and because of its position on the side of the hill, you get a constant cool breeze throughout the day and at night. Even though the house is equipped with brand new AC units, you may not need to run them very often because of the cool daily breeze.
Purchasing an affordable, simple home such as this one comes to room to create and build. The one-acre property has space outside of the family room to accommodate a moderate-sized pool to enjoy the sunshine while looking out into the green abyss of the jungle canopy. There is also room on the sides of the house to expand the bedrooms or create an additional room on the south side of the house.
Platanillo is in a prime location to enjoy all of Southern Costa Rica’s offerings. Within 30 minutes, you can find yourself enjoying the dark sandy beaches at Dominical, Marino Ballena National Park in Uvita, or in the opposite direction, you will find yourself enjoying the organic ex-pat community of Tinamaste. If you find yourself missing the hustle and bustle of the city or needing a different amenity such as bulk food stores, then into the mountains and you will find yourself in the heart of San Isidro de General.
The Platanillo community is very active in any and all things life has to offer whether it be farmer’s markets, animal rescue and rehabilitation, fine wine and food, outdoor adventure groups, or enjoying the indoors, this community has a little bit of it all. The coastal community Costa Ballena also has numerous private and public school to choose from, as well as small-town amenities.
