Private 23 Acre Ocean View Estate With Quaint 2 Level Home And Idyllic Pool
Fantastic Location In A Highly Desirable Eco-Community Adjacent To A Wildlife Refuge
Seldom does a property come along that offers this many stunning features. The property is located in Guapil Tropical Estates, the most desirable eco-community in the Southern Zone. This planned development boasts large, estate-sized lots (this one is 23 acres). Only 17 owners (20 total lots) enjoy the gated community with carefully thought-out, ecological easements to ensure wildlife preservation, environmental integrity, and long-term tranquility among the owners. The project is very well managed, with a great amount of owner participation. There is a great community vibe and the development enjoys the best road system in the area. This community was the first of its kind created in the mid-1990s and remains unmatched in its desirability more than twenty-five years later. Apart from having its own 100-acre, shared reserve at the high point of the property (which also protects the community's water supply), the community is adjacent to the 800-acre Baru Wildlife Refuge which extends all the way down to the Baru River and Playa Guapil.
Old Growth Forest With Abundant Wildlife Overlooking The Pacific Ocean
This particular property is adjacent to the 800-acre neighboring reserve, sits at roughly 750 feet above sea level, and enjoys more wildlife than most of the country's national parks. The forest is nothing short of magical. Old-growth trees provide shade, biodiversity, depth, and character to the site. Even with the forest cover, there are still nice open areas and stunning views in all westerly directions: Caño Island, year-round sunsets, and the enchanting Manuel Antonio National Park headlands.
Two Level Home With A Pool And Rancho With Rotisserie Oven, Wet Bar, And Full Bathroom
There is a simple but sturdy, two level, one bedroom home with great views and a desirable position on the property. The entire lower level is currently being used for climate controlled storage and could easily be converted into more living space. A free form, infinity pool with brick decking and an adjacent rancho with shade, seating, a rotisserie oven, a full bathroom, a wet bar and BBQ area looks over the edge of the rain forest and toward the endless Pacific horizon.
Plenty Of Room For New Construction With Community Water And A Private Water Concession
There is ample room on the property to construct a larger, main home which would render the current residence as a nice guest house. The property has access to the community water system but also enjoys a formal concession from a nearby creek. One of the best features of the property is the serenity and the integrity of the view. Not a single house can be seen from the main prominent ridge, and hardly any manmade light is visible on the night horizon. The property is truly enveloped in nature.
A Suitable Property For Private Residence Or Long Term Rental
This is not a property for someone seeking to pursue a short term rental program, but the community's ecological easements to do allow for rentals of one month or more.
Ultimate privacy, end of the road location, rainforest magic, abundant wildlife, stunning coastal and sunset views, a turnkey residence with pool and space to build your dream home. All of this located just 10 minutes from Dominical Beach and 20 minutes from the Quepos airport along a well paved, coastal highway. These collective features are hard to find and rarely obtained in any property. Please inquire for private viewings.
