Located in the community of Balsar in the Southern Zone of Costa Rica, this 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home is perched on a high-altitude hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Terraba River valley below.
At 2000-feet above sea level, the short 15 minute drive from the highway takes you up a steep road to this private mountain-top paradise. The road up is partially paved has been approved for complete paving by the municipality. You are only 25 minutes to local shopping and a domestic airport that can fly you to San Jose in less than 45 minutes.
This turnkey home comes with all of the high-end furnishings, appliances, and linens you need to kick off your Costa Rica life in style. Each of the rooms is decorated with comfort and quality in mind and you’ll love this beautiful tropical property whether you’re moving here or looking to rent on AirBnb.
The well-crafted structure was built to capture as much of the panoramic views as possible from every space inside and outside of the home. Large windows face the ocean and sunset views. The sights from every corner of this house are spectacular.
The two master bedrooms each have private entrances to the covered terrace. And, the open plan kitchen/living/dining room flows out to the screened terrace.
The lovely and ample kitchen has a recessed pantry for storing lots of supplies. New high-quality stainless steel appliances cultivate a pleasant cooking environment in this breezy open space. A breakfast bar leads out to the living room for a lovely shared space where a 60” TV set rises out of a hideaway cabinet that is connected to a Bose 7-speaker sound system. This is the heart of the home and an excellent place to find comfort.
The first king master bedroom is a vast space with a luxury walk-in closet, gorgeous local hardwood furnishings, and an en-suite bathroom with newly renovated stone and tilework.
The second master bedroom has a queen sized bed and a walk in closet. There is also a full bathroom that was also renovated in the last year with beautiful tile and stone.
The third bedroom has been converted to an office space and laundry with its own half bath and a separate entrance. This space has been used to host clients and is a private location with easy access from the driveway for a small business practice like acupuncture or hairdressing.
This home has a rooftop deck that is accessed by an outdoor spiral staircase taking you to an impeccable 360-degree view location. You will feel like you are on top of the world, looking out at the rolling mountains to the east and west and the river valley stretching out to the ocean.
If you’re the grilling type, there is a stainless steel BBQ on the covered terrace next to the infinity pool that overlooks the ocean. This is the space you are going to want to entertain guests and wow them with your property’s fantastic vistas!
This home was designed to be an energy-saving haven. Roof-mounted solar panels power the home’s electricity and hot water. And, the roof is made of insulated galvanized tin that keeps the heat out and dampens the sound of heavy rain.
Despite the cooler altitude of this high elevation, there are high-end air conditioning units in each room—even the garage. The very secure garage has space for two cars and all of the quality maintenance tools hanging on the walls come with the home.
Speaking of maintenance, the home sellers are doing preventative maintenance on their hill sides to prevent erosion and to be perfectly prepared for the next owners to feel confident in the state of their property.
