Chic two bedroom garden home in an ideal ocean view location
Looking to live on a smaller scale, with full luxury amenities and a lovely aesthetic? Not everyone needs a 4-bedroom home when planning his or her move to Costa Rica. And for those more sensible couples or singles still wanting a lot of personal space, this chic 1750 square foot two-bedroom home has everything you need! Lots of shaded lounge areas, indoor and outdoor dining, a full-sized pool, high ceilings, ensuite master bedroom, large kitchen with plenty of counter space, and a stunning floral garden on almost 1 acre with great privacy. Because of the 100% usable lot you can add more bedrooms or a couple of guesthouses. With this property, you can have it all.
Situated on a private cul-de-sac with very little traffic, this home is perched at the back end of the inclining lot with a lovely broad view of the Pacific Ocean, Cano Island, and Ojochal village sprawling below. The Talamanca Mountains tower in the back of this property, sending down fresh mountain breezes throughout the day and night with several waterfalls sprouting out during the green season.
This tranquil and private garden home is laid out over one story with good security features in place. The doors and windows seal closed and the main living space and guest bedroom can be air conditioned for cool and comfortable living. The master ensuite bedroom faces the mountains and receives the full force of the refreshing mountain breeze through many windows.
The living room and dining room are outfitted with a beautiful ensemble of furnishings and art. The gourmet kitchen comes with top of the line stainless steel appliances – fridge, gas oven and stovetop, and microwave – convection oven. The large laundry room and secure bodega are located in the garage/carport adjacent to the home, only a few steps away.
The ensuite master bedroom can accommodate a king-sized bed and has a large walk-in closet that is dehumidified and doubles as a safe room and linen closet. The guest room is separated from the master by a guest bath for a good amount of privacy, and the room enjoys spectacular views right from bed for a real wow-factor when family or friends come to visit!
This is a residence that can be particularly appreciated for its quality of life, featuring a number of great areas to work and relax. The current owner elongated the patio facing the ocean view, adding lots of shade and comfortable seating (Castelle furniture) along with ceiling fans to better enjoy the sumptuous garden surroundings. With a good book in hand, you may never want to leave this spot! Refreshments are only a few steps away through the large, air-conditioned living/reception room adjoining the kitchen, which features a central island and opens onto the northeast-facing outdoor terrace. This second covered outdoor space has all-day shade for comfortable dining and lounging nearby the sunny pool.
A true garden home, this property has a wide variety of floral art. Watch this garden bloom in different colors throughout the year and relish in the aerial visitors coming to enjoy the fruits of your land. Morpho butterflies, hummingbirds, and Scarlet Macaws are just some of the colorful friends you can expect to visit regularly. Not to worry about daily maintenance – there is automatic sprinklers built into the lawn to keep the landscaping hydrated, including a large back-up water tank.
