Valley and ocean-view home.

Valley and ocean view home in Costa Rica with land for fruit trees. This property has a unique home that is perfect for the tropics. The cement dome roof offers amazing insulation, so the house is always cool during the hot summer days. This roof does not let the sound in so when it is pouring rain you do not hear it, unlike many homes where the sound is overwhelming during rainstorms. The house has an open design allowing the breeze to flow through the large living room and into the modern kitchen and master bedroom, all on one level. On the second level, there are two loft style bedrooms with a full bathroom and closet. The home was updated just recently and has all the quality appliances and finishes of a newer home. The garage has space for two cars and tons of storage along with two big water tanks that are there for backup.

The biggest attraction besides the view is the outdoor kitchen with a high-end BBQ that is next to the very large pool. There is a large sitting area beside the pool with great views and a wonderful breeze. This area is perfect for family reunions or parties for friends.

The property is fairly flat allowing room to plant more fruit trees or a garden but there is also a special place to build a separate guest house. There is a flat area for outdoor parking so various cars can park easily. For someone looking to buy an investment and rent it to large groups, this would be a perfect property.

Now let me tell you about the location. It is in an easily accessible place with a spectacular view and very private. The best thing is that from the property the drive to the main airport is only 55 minutes and similar to Pricesmart, Walmart, CIMA hospital and many other amenities. But if you do not want to drive too far, the town of Orotina is just 25 minutes away and here you can find stores with tons of fresh fruit, farmers markets, great restaurants, and good medical and dental at better prices than the tourist towns. There are beaches just 20 minutes away to enjoy the sand and sunsets. And if you like beach towns you can drive to Jaco Beach just 25 minutes away. So, to me it is great because you are home and enjoying what Costa Rica best offers when it comes to views and wildlife but then you can reach many activities with a short drive.

To me, this location was one of the most beautiful that I have visited. The climate was cool but not cold and the landscape was beautiful.
