Listing ID: 001631136019

Beautiful home, nearly 1-acre lot on a 21-acre estate, spectacular wide views, ocean sunsets. This development for a small community provides a private, peaceful, exclusive and secluded feeling. The entire property is 21 acres, of which 7.3 acres have been reserved as the communal property, with a couple of miles of walking trails through orchards, original rain forest, jungle areas, and creeks. The orchard has a great variety of fruit: plantains, mangoes, starfruit, oranges, zapote, cass, cashew, Brazilian cherries, bananas, acerola berries, calamondin oranges, 3 different kinds of lemons, guanabana, aki, guava and 2,000 plants of coffee producing some 600 pounds of the best coffee in the world for the homeowners’ enjoyment. The development is secured by an automatic gate, opened with a remote control by owners and a keypad for visitors. All houses on the property have underground electricity. The house is situated on a magical ridge, 3,000 feet elevation, with 2 Pacific Ocean views to Puntarenas and to Manuel Antonio, some 20 miles away as the crow flies, and with expansive valley and mountain views. The lot of almost one acre, 3,400 m2 (36,600 ft2), has been planted with a huge variety of different palm trees, Ylang-ylang, Bougainvillae, a wealth of exotic and flowering trees and hundreds of ornamental flowering bushes, some with an intoxicating fragrance like gardenia, Brugmansia, jasmine, ylang-ylang, and frangipani etc. The house has been constructed with a great amount of loving care and attention to detail, to celebrate the beauty and nourish our aesthetic sensibilities, as well as to be a sturdy and practical residence. It has been set into a hill with towering trees in the back for the natural feng shui flow. This is for people who cherish beauty and nature, who love the quiet, who love to gaze into the Milky Way or stroll through the orchards picking any fruit nature is offering today. Living here is truly living in paradise – the peacefulness of nature: endlessly drinking in the greens glistening in every shade imaginable, set off by a myriad of reds, pinks, yellows, purples of flowering bushes and trees. Filled with the sound of buzzing bees and hummingbirds, the air is filled with birdsong. The planting of some 5,000 trees throughout the whole property has attracted the innumerable variety of birds of all sizes and colors, such as toucans, falcons, eagles, vultures, mot-mots, the great kiskadee, woodpeckers, tanagers, owls, doves, kites and many many more.
