Uncompromised privacy and an intimate connection with nature are the hallmarks of this 25-acre property located in one of Dominical's finest gated communities. Guapil Tropical Estates is a 300-acre development with just 20 estate-sized lots and a 100-acre private reserve at the summit of the development.
There is a security gate at the bottom of the mountain (only 1 way in and 1 way out), the internal roads are in great condition, several beautiful creeks traverse the development and being inside the community is like entering a beautiful rainforest park. Casa Gran Reserva represents a rare purchase opportunity and sits at the end of a quiet, side road. The approach to the property is very impressive, passing several-hundred-year-old trees and a crystal clear year-round stream. The main house was FULLY remodeled in 2019 with most all of the fixtures, finishes and furniture being brand new. The main house is a 6 bedroom, 5 bathroom home built on three and a half levels. The main/entry level features two, pool-side bedroom suites, a family/reading/tv room which is full of light, and two other bedrooms - all of which flow to a large terrace and the swimming pool with pool-side (covered) bbq area. The upper level features a generous and well-appointed great room with the kitchen & bar being fully integrated into the social space, a half bath off to the side and large floor to ceiling windows looking over the mature canopy and towards the Pacific Ocean.
There is also a sizable ocean-facing terrace with another bar/coffee area that overlooks the pool. Above this space is a staircase leading to a breathtaking master bedroom suite which provides even more lofty views and amazing star & moon gazing at night. The "pent house suite" features a luxurious bathroom, sleek tub and private terrace which affords the best views on the property. The lowest level of the main house features a staff room (and en suite full bathroom), and a storage area. The entire house is surrounded by GIANT trees, fruit bearing trees and beautifully maintained gardens.
At the back of the property and behind the main house is a two level, 3 bedroom guest house. The entire upper level here features the kitchen and social area with the bedrooms on the ground level. This guest house could be for full-time caretakers for the absentee owners and also has vistas to the Pacific Ocean. Additionally, the property features hiking trails, and the parcel boarders a year-round creek with a nice cascading section. One can explore the property for days and see incredible varieties of flora and abundant wildlife. There is also a covered parking bay (2 car) by the main house and dozens of mature fruit trees. It's a true tropical paradise which feels like you're in your own private, hidden retreat, yet located within a gated community and also only 10 minutes from the town of Dominical and 20 minutes from Quepos. The property is very well suited for a private estate, vacation home, or rental income-producing asset.
Casa Gran Reserva is a rare offering with many desirable elements and is being offered at a great value. The main house was FULLY remodeled in 2019 with most all of the fixtures, finishes and furniture being brand new.
