14.5 hectares (35.83 acres), accessed by a paved road just 15 minutes from the main town of Santiago, Puriscal, are surrounded by unobstructed views to the Central Valley, Gulf of Nicoya and picturesque surrounding mountains and farmland. The gently rolling terrain has internal roads in place and is already producing coffee (3 hectares), lemons, oranges, avocados, platanos, bananas as well as a variety of native species.
Additionally, many protected hardwood trees such as Guanacaste, Pochote, Cristobal, Guachipelen, Cedro and others are found throughout the property. A reforestation project was recently completed with the planting of over 3000 trees of the same varieties listed above. Pasture areas host horses and cattle and a 110 meter corral is in place. The property has a year round spring which provides water for drinking, irrigation and a pond that could be stocked with Tilapia fish. There are at least ten additional building sites throughout which offer the potential for a family compound, an exclusive community development or a classy lodging business.
The 8,000 ft2 house, built with solid concrete walls and steel sits on a ultra seismically sound foundation and is a Colonial inspired marvel. Attention to every detail is obvious in the artistically designed doors, iron banister, balcony railings, chandelier and countless quality wood finishes. Large picture windows allow light to fill the rooms and perfectly frame the incredible views outside.
A spacious great room flows into an exquisite chef's kitchen that makes this home an entertainer's dream come true. Four bedrooms and four and a half baths offer plenty of room for family and guests to enjoy space and privacy. An observatory in the highest point of the home enjoys the most dramatic views of all. A three car garage is the perfect welcome home on a rainy afternoon and a 1000 liter water reserve tank is cleverly disguised in a charming tower.
Outside, a romantic Jacuzzi feeds a waterfall surrounded by beautiful tropical plants and flows into the sparkling pool below. Lush green areas and an ample outdoor kitchen add to the aesthetics and enjoyment of the property and from here one can appreciate the same incredible views as from the house. Words cannot do justice to the impact of seeing volcanoes Poas, Barva and Irazú in the distance by day and the twinkling of city lights by night. Simply breathtaking!
Additionally, a caretakers house is located along the entrance road that leads to the main house. Some finishing details remain to be completed on the main home and for this or other projects there is an abundant amount of the finest hardwoods ready for use. There are too many attributes to name and the possibilities are endless including a perfect location for a B&B, wellness center, specialty retreats or simply an amazing primary residence. Let your imagination run wild, it is all possible here.
This beautiful property sits at an altitude of 3500 feet to enjoy some of the mildest temperatures in Costa Rica. San José can be reached in under one hour as well as the International airport. Central Pacific and Southern beach towns are a 1.5 hour drive and the new public hospital in Puriscal is just 15 minutes away. A must see.
