Home is located in the heart of Lake Arenal, Guanacaste,…
Nestled amongst lush, natural jungle foliage and beauty, this large estate is also conveniently located within minutes from downtown Nuevo Arenal. This two (2) acre property consists of the Main House, separate one (1) bedroom Guest House, Caretaker’s Facilities, Greenhouse with mature, organic produce AND an oversized workshop/storage building with attached carport! With only five (5) other estates in this exclusive area, you are guaranteed complete privacy and quiet enjoyment.
The Main and Guest Houses have been constructed to the highest standards, exceeding local building codes. Both homes are appointed with custom features not found elsewhere in Costa Rican homes. Built for luxurious living both indoors and out, the entire estate is fully fenced and secured by not just one, but five (5) separate self-closing entry gates. The primary gate is ideally located just off the main road from Nuevo Arenal to La Fortuna and is some distance from the Main House. The secondary gate is at the extreme opposite end of the estate, just outside and conveniently located adjacent to the Caretaker’s Facilities. All roads within the estate are paved and join each other for easy movement throughout the property and its’ separate outbuildings. The main gate to the actual property has been constructed as to allow for additional or overflow parking if necessary, and is shared by only one other homeowner.
The Main House boasts an open great room with custom tile flooring, custom Guanacaste wood tongue-in-groove ceilings and views from each room. The gourmet kitchen is appointed with premium stainless refrigerator, stove, dishwasher and stainless steel double sink. All countertops in the kitchen and sit up bar are of beautiful granite, perfectly coordinated with the custom mosaic tile backsplash and Mission Style custom cabinetry. There is more than ample storage here, with its’ bank of drawers and upper cabinets. The kitchen also features a custom built-in wine rack and adjacent large pantry, both designed and crafted of rare woods.
There are two (2) bedroom suites in the Main Home, both of which offer spectacular views of the lush jungle foliage, Lake Arenal and beyond. The Master Suite has its’ own access to the rear lawn with sweeping, stunning views of the property and Lake Arenal. All windows in the bedrooms, as well as throughout the entire home are custom, German Tilt and Turn multi-position windows, which provide natural air flow and lighting in every room. On warmer days, the bedroom’s A/C unit is a huge benefit, and cools the room perfectly! The Master Bath features gorgeous custom tile-work, with a large walk-in shower and separate large tub. The Master Bath vanity is also topped with custom granite and is constructed of rare local wood.
The Secondary bedroom is also nicely sized, and equipped with a generous clothes closet. Numerous German Tilt and Turn windows provide for great views and natural lighting. There is an A/C unit also installed in the secondary bedroom for your comfort.
The Laundry Room, next to the walk in pantry, is furnished with like-new, full-sized washer, dryer, and hot water heater.
The design and custom touches continue onto the Terrace/Patio just outside the dining room/kitchen area. This entertainer’s dream of a patio includes a decorative combination of tile and paver flooring, which is also used in the design of the flower garden adjacent to the large outdoor eating deck. Each tree and/or flower adjacent to this patio was carefully selected and planted to serve as either an edible fruit (banana, papaya, etc) or herbal/medicinal plant. Dining outdoors, or simply relaxing under the covered portico – taking in the beautiful surroundings and the open sky here – is living at its’ finest!
Just outside the Main House is a separate building constructed to house the main electricity, water and internet connections. It was also built large enough to house excess equipment and for added storage.
The Guest House, adjacent to and separate from the Main House, also has a Great Room concept and is fully functional with an open kitchen, full bath, large bedroom and living room. The kitchen is fully equipped with refrigerator, microwave, high-end cooktop stove and much more. The custom-built stand alone island contains drawers and ample storage underneath its granite countertop. Custom wood cabinets and countertops in the kitchen area complement each other as in the Main House. The Guest House Bath is also designed and built with custom tile-work and fixtures. From the Great Room, there is a 2-way doored access to the Guest House bedroom Suite. This access also acts as the Guest House clothes closet – a very clever design! The bedroom itself is very large and has built-in storage shelving and high ceilings. There is a sliding glass door on one side of the bedroom that leads out to the entrance gate and beyond. The other custom French door leads out to a spacious courtyard, also designed with tile and paver flooring. This is an ideal area for BBQ’ing, dining or just relaxing amongst the decadent landscaping and adjacent flower garden. You will find the same high-quality, custom windows and 5-lock system doors in the Guest House as in the Main House, each providing spectacular views, natural lighting and excellent air ventilation.
The large workshop/storage building on the property is unbelievable. One side houses large lawn/landscaping equipment, tools and so much more! There is a 2-car oversized covered parking space as well as an attached automatic garage door to the workshop. Unique to this property is the access to both city and natural spring water and a high-tech water filtration system in place within this building to service the entire estate. The attached, other side of this building is the professional greenhouse. Currently there are numerous mature, organic vegetables flourishing in this well-planned garden. A special sprinkler system is in place for use in the”dry” seasons. Just across, and outside of the covered greenhouse is an additional large open garden area, also flourishing with organic vegetables and fruit.
At the farthest end of the estate is a Caretaker’s Facility which is a cleverly designed container unit, surrounded by a cut-stone patio, overlooking the entire garden complex and beyond. The placement of the Caretaker’s container enables observation and security of the access gate and adjoining driveway to the main house compound. It is fully functional and furnished with laundry and kitchen equipment, bath with shower and beds. This is the ideal home for an on-site caretaker and contains everything you need to just move in! There is ample natural lighting, air ventilation and privacy here, not to mention some of the same wonderful views as found in the Main House.
