The house was designed and built by privacy lovers, and it shows. The feeling of being in your own little world is impressive when you consider that you are just 15 minutes from San Isidro’s bustling town center with all the conveniences - shops, stores, doctors, dentists and yes, even a movie theater.
The style is probably best termed “Plantation”. The downstairs is where the current owners live with the master bathroom, kitchen, living and dining areas. There is also the wrap-around porch that enjoys joy-inducing views of the Talamanca mountain range, frequently with clouds and mists draped and moving about the upper ridge off in the distance.
One a lower level of the property that is accessed by cement steps there is a horse stable. The current owners have 2 horses there now but there is capacity for up to 8. Adjoining the stables is a caretakers studio unit complete with kitchen and bathroom.
The lifestyle would be towards self-sufficiency. Although they are connected to the grid, there is plenty of sunshine for the installation of solar, if so desired. The water is a community system that originates on the property. There are both fruit and hardwood trees abundantly throughout the property. The wood will be available for harvest in 5 - 10 years.
The house sits on a promontory so the breezes and the elevation assure its inhabitants of a constant “perfect” climate. The land is rolling and is largely usable along with areas of jungle, pasture and the omnipresent view. There is so much land with this property that it would be difficult to enumerate the various possibilities for use. Farming, small community, rental villas, retreats. Certainly as a turn key it is ready to move in to. The bathroom upstairs needs a little work to finish at this writing, such as a light switch, some paint and setting the toilet (which is there). But it is essentially ready for almost immediate occupancy.
