Above the resort town of Uvita, on the southwest coast of Costa Rica where the mountains come closest to the ocean, sits a hidden jewel. Immersed in nature, tranquility and privacy, this unique tri-level custom home is situated on a bluff with spectacular sweeping views.
From your home or deck you witness the Uvita river meeting with the Ballena and Cortizal rivers. As you view up the Ballena river valley and the Uvita river valley these valleys climb into the Talamanca mountain range beyond. These valleys create mists at various times of day as the rainforest create 'clouds' all beautifully visible from your home.
Looking to southwest you see the " Whales' Tail", the second longest sandbar in the world,extending out 1/2 mile into the Pacific, all part of the largest ocean reserve in Central America. Watch as the tides come in crashing over the reef and covering the sand peninsula at high tide. These views magically alter by the hour as the rivers, mists, tides, mountain shadows, as well as sun and moonlight continuously change.
Created with great love and attention to details, this large one bedroom, 1 1/2 bath home reflects an unusual melding of ancient and old European design incorporating stone, marble, tropical woods with steel reinforced thick concrete walls. Built to last centuries, the beautifully sculpted moldings, arched doors, high ceilings, were all exquisitely handcrafted by some of the finest artisans in Costa Rica.
The builder's goal was to create a home whose beauty would move heart and soul and flow with the dramatic views. The feel is palatial yet cradled in nature where one can experience "living in art and natural beauty at the same time". The many large windows and spacious covered decks of the master bedroom and main level invite the gentle river valley breezes inside which cool you night and day.
Tranquil and peaceful among the sounds are Howler monkeys, tropical birds and the soothing sound of the ocean and three rivers below. Yet still only minutes to town, beaches, and all amenities.
This luxurious and comfortable home offers an unusual opportunity for any couple or individual who wishes to live in a tropical dreamscape while enjoying the area's almost unlimited adventure and pleasure.
