Living the dream: This wonderful large home has it all!…
Wonderfully unique home in beautiful Nuevo Arenal! This lovely home, built in 2007, is nestled among very lush, mature jungle foliage and boasts numerous varieties of banana, mango, papaya, lemon, and mandarin trees; numerous coconut palms. Among the beautiful flowers, lush lawn and foliage, there is also a small raised vegetable garden in which to grow your own favorites. This home was carefully designed for warmth, open ventilation and natural lighting with its vaulted, insulated, natural split-bamboo ceilings and custom windows throughout. Every room has incredible views – whether it is of Lake Arenal or the beautiful surrounding landscaping.
Located between Nuevo Arenal and nearby La Fortuna, this 2 bedroom, 1.50 bath home is an art-lover’s dream home! Custom wrought-iron window coverings, custom wood cabinetry and doors throughout; expensive, unique hand-painted sinks in the baths, custom mosaic tile countertops in the kitchen and baths; mosaic tile headboard in the guest bedroom, and of course, the custom Children’s Hideaway with hand-painted murals of monkeys and vines typical of Costa Rica! Even the adobe-style gas fireplace in the living room has been hand-painted for the owners. The Master shower, with it’s custom tile work and rainfall shower is oversized, unique and private. So much personality and beauty under one roof!
The open “great room” concept of the Living/Dining Room with its natural lighting also features a breakfast nook, and many ‘reading’ nooks throughout. All appliances are newer and convey with the home (all furniture, custom decorating items and vehicle are negotiable). The large walk-in pantry has abundant shelving and houses a compact washer/dryer. An adjacent small pantry contains the dishwasher and additional storage space – a rare, but desirable find in Arenal.
The grounds provide outdoor living at its best in Costa Rica – a private heated jacuzzi and covered gazebo with sling chairs and hammock nestled amongst lush trees and flora, with a commanding view of the lake.
The 1.5 garage is separate from the main home, with a workbench area, automatic opener and is armed with motion detector security lighting. This property, being just under an acre, affords additional building room for a casita for additional guests if you desire; ideal for a vacation rental home/investment as well. The property’s close proximity to some of Nuevo Arenal’s finest dining, La Fortuna and the Arenal Volcano are just a few of the amenities that make this a “jewel in the jungle”.
