Hacienda del Lago: The finest private estate home on Lake Arenal
This spectacular estate home, corporate retreat or wellness center is situated on a beautifully maintained paradise of gardens and waterfalls with over 100 species of flowering plants, colorful native trees and a flowing stream. With its breathtaking architecture, spectacular views of Lake Arenal and close proximity to the town of Nuevo Arenal, this private oasis is considered the finest private estate home on Lake Arenal.
Hacienda del Lago (The Lake Estate), is a remarkable confluence of architectural design and the natural outdoor beauty of Costa Rica. Newly constructed, the home offers four bedrooms, a media room or exercise room and a private second floor master suite with an adjoining office and a private balcony overlooking Lake Arenal. There is also a small staff bedroom with private bath and separate entrance. Hacienda del Lago was designed to accommodate either an extended family or large groups with the same grace and sense of purpose. Designed to perfection, the approximate 5,000 square foot residence flows seamlessly. A large chef’s kitchen layout and great room with fireplace along with an adjoining living room flows out to a beautiful terrace overlooking Lake Arenal offering the opportunity to create a romantic dinner for two or entertaining on a grand scale.
The property also offers over six acres of manicured gardens, terraced lawns, a large swimming pool, waterfall, natural stream and a variety of fruit trees including orange, grapefruit and lemon trees. The main terrace and the open-air balconies capture unobstructed views of Lake Arenal, as does the pool and gardens on the lower lawns. Private staff quarters and a helicopter-landing site are also on the property. Perhaps most noteworthy is the fact that the property consists of four different segregated parcels totaling 6.2 acres. This offers the next owner the opportunity to build up to three additional 5,000 square foot private homes on the property or a multitude of guest houses or small villas on each of the four parcels.
Hacienda del Lago is perfectly situated overlooking Lake Arenal. The home is ten minutes from the town of Nuevo Arenal which offers supermarkets, pharmacies and a variety of fine restaurants. There are several highly rated inns and bed and breakfast accommodations, all within fifteen minutes of the home.
Lake Arenal is without question one of the most beautiful areas of all of Central America. The lake is located in the north central region of Costa Rica, less than 2 hours from Liberia International Airport, 3 hours from the Pacific coast beaches and 3.5 hours northwest of the capital of San Jose. Lake Arenal, 33 square miles, is a crystal clear, pristine, freshwater lake at an elevation of 1,800 feet. The lake maintains a year-round temperature of approximately 75F or 26C. Lake Arenal offers a myriad of outdoor activities including some of the best freshwater fishing in all of Costa Rica, including the prized Rainbow bass. There is a local marina just two minutes down the lake road from the house where you can rent a boat or dock your own boat. Windsurfing and kite boarding in Lake Arenal will take your breath away. It is renowned to be one of the top five windsurfing locations on earth. Not only a sport for professionals, this is a sport for beginners too with equipment rentals and lessons available right on the lakeshore. Additional popular outdoor pursuits one can enjoy in the area include mountain biking, hiking, white water rafting, tennis, horseback riding, yoga, nature walks, boating, kayaking and excursions to Arenal volcano.
