Private Rainforest Studio With Ocean View And Extra Building Site
This exceptional property features a move in ready studio, ocean views, outstanding privacy, creek frontage, and a huge building site where a much larger home can be constructed. In fact, this rainforest studio was intended to be the guest house for a much larger project. The studio has a very high build quality and it is conveniently located only minutes to the center of Uvita with easy access on a very well-maintained road. On this beautiful property, you can immediately enjoy the best of Costa Rica living and build your dream tropical home surrounded by serenity. The outstanding ocean views were created without disturbing the natural landscape, which provides a sanctuary for wildlife and cooling shade.
With 6.2 acres of varying terrain, this property is special in how it lays out with a lower flat section along the creek where you will find an entry gate and an existing caretaker’s/rental home. From here the property climbs to a higher elevation of almost 900’ where the ocean breeze, along with the natural cooling effect of the creek, will maintain an ideal tropical climate. At the highest point of the property there is another private gated entry leading to the studio home, which was just fully remodeled with premium finishes. This one bedroom home sits atop a 2 car garage with an additional lock down room to safely store your personal belongings while you are away.
The home was built in 2004 and features solid poured concrete construction and floors of Purple Heart hardwood which can no longer be harvested in Costa Rica. They are stunning and were highlighted with the open and airy design. The just completed remodel includes entirely new bathroom, kitchen, fixtures, appliances, double pane windows, exceptional lighting and the balcony was enclosed with screening and fully retractable glass double pane doors. European fixtures were utilized throughout and no detail was neglected.

The sides of the road are lined with fruit trees and a private trail on the property which gradually winds its way down to the creek and caretakers home below.
