Located within walking distance from beautiful downtown Nuevo Arenal, this exceptional quality 3,013 sq. ft. home has been constructed to the highest standards, exceeding American & Canadian Building codes. The estate is situated on a private acreage with superior Lake Arenal views from every window and patio of the Main Home and private Cottage. Both homes are flawless, with custom features not found elsewhere in Costa Rican homes. Built for luxurious living both indoors and out, the property is fully fenced and secured beyond the main entrance self-closing gates. The Main Home boasts an open great room with hand-scraped bamboo, high ceilings, and a custom fireplace with a built-in entertainment center. The gourmet kitchen is unbelievably appointed with premium appliances such as a Bosch induction cooktop, Samsung stainless water/ice refrigerator, built-in GE Convection Wall oven and microwave, Whirlpool stainless dishwasher, and two-temperature wine bar refrigerator. All countertops, island and sit up bar in the kitchen are of beautiful granite, perfectly coordinated with the Mission Style cabinetry, custom designed and crafted of rare wood by the owner. The many features in the kitchen include a large built-in designer wine rack, tempered glass front cabinets with smart LED interior lighting and glass shelves, and a custom ventilation system throughout. The oversized, walk-in pantry wraps around to a secondary high-end refrigerator/freezer and has extra shelving and storage space. Truly a chef and entertainers dream! Adjacent to the kitchen and Great Room there is a semi-private office area housing custom cabinetry and desk with granite countertop. The office has a DSL Hardline, and a command center for the home security system, which is accessible locally as well as internationally.
The Main Home features two large suites, both offering complete privacy and superior views. The secondary suite features custom tile flooring, beautiful windows with German Tilt and Turn multi-posistion openings, and an oversized private bath. Gorgeous Travertine flooring and tile work can be found in this bath as well as throughout the home. The secondary suite has its own private patio accessible from the bedroom from which you can relax and enjoy the lovely views or perhaps spot a variety of the local exotic birds and other wildlife. There’s a generous custom clothes closet with interior lighting and open shelving in the secondary suite, also custom designed and crafted by the owner. The Master Suite is separate and located on the opposite side of the home and is also well-appointed with Travertine marble flooring, and gorgeous designer cabinetry. You will find many of the quality German Tilt and Turn windows in the Master Suite, all placed to maximize natural lighting and airflow throughout. The master bath boasts two sinks and more than ample custom His/Her storage cabinetry. Classic granite countertops and Travertine marble tile in the large shower are well-coordinated with the flooring and cabinetry.
The design and custom touches continue onto the Terrace/Patio just outside the kitchen and Dining area. This entertainer’s dream of a patio includes beautiful tile flooring, custom sit up bar from where you can enjoy your drinks, take in the 180-degree view of Lake Arenal or stunning sunsets Nuevo Arenal are famous for. This is ideal outdoor living space, as it contains a built-in propane BBQ, an artisan pottery sink and high-end wine/bar refrigerator. It’s the perfect spot to host your outdoor parties.
The 1,015 sq. ft. Cottage, located on the acreage but separate from the Main House, is amazing with the same custom design and handiwork throughout! It also has its own private patio with a built-in BBQ area and custom sit up bar from which to enjoy the surrounding beauty. Much like the Main Home, the Cottage has a full kitchen with high-end custom appliances, Mission style cabinetry with granite countertops and quality and tile work throughout. In the Cottage you will find the same quality and type of windows which are installed in the Main Home, as well as additional ventilation system to provide continuous flow of air. From every window in the Cottage you also enjoy natural lighting and beautiful views. The custom Italian screen system installed in the french door and awning windows keep bugs out while maintaining natural airflow and lighting. The Cottage has an independent Internet and TV system in the living room area. There is also an oversized custom clothes closet with an in-floor safe. This magnificent Cottage has everything you could desire and more. It is ideal for overflow guests, and enjoys a 90% occupancy rate during our high season, and 100% approval rating from AirBnB, HomeAway, VRBO and Booking.Com!
Attached to the Cottage is one of the largest home workshops (807 sq. ft.) you will find and an adjoining single-car garage. The workshop is soundproofed, insulated and self contained with tons of storage space.
Aside from the aesthetics of this exquisite home and cottage, there are many features that make this property stand apart from all the rest.
