The Chontales community is one of the most talked about locations in the red-hot real estate market of Southern-Pacific Costa Rica and this is not at all surprising! Like a tourism ad, this is where lush jungles and misty mountains descend to meet the beaches, mangroves and deep blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. In between you will find all the amenities, activities and attractions you will ever need to live the most comfortable and relaxing life.
Peace, serenity, an immersion in tropical nature can all be yours sooner than you think! The house is located off the road between Ojochal and Cortez, in a gated and well laid-out Chontales community. A well-graded road splits from Route 34 (the coastal highway) to take you up the lush hills, through a beautifully crafted gate and towards this exceptional property (as a BIG bonus, a 4WD is not needed).
The lot is mostly flat and occupied by a single level house laid out to maximize the benefits presented by its spectacular location.
The south and east sides of the property are surrounded by a tropical jungle which will not be cleared due to the proximity of a burbling
creek that descends through the valley (this is the Costa Rican law). This jungle is like a botanical garden with countless species of towering trees, tropical plants, flowers and orchids attracting the wildlife Costa Rica is famous for – scarlet macaws, toucans, monkeys, majestic blue morpho butterflies and many other animals will be your constant neighbor!
To the north a rising green hill has been landscaped with flowers, shrubs and trees. But the west (front) side of the lot creates the main focal point – a sweeping view descending into a valley, through the mangroves of the Terraba river delta, and terminating at the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean.
A long and high-quality paver-stone driveway takes you to the parking area behind the house, secure under a carport and including additional
uncovered parking spots. As you exit the carport, a short walkway leads you past a well-manicured garden and through to the main entrance to the house which unfolds into a large open-concept kitchen/dining/living area. In front of you, in place of a wall, are large floor-to-ceiling glass panels that frame the mangrove and ocean views – a truly spectacular entrance!
The two middle panels slide away to reveal a passage to the swimming pool and a patio area located at the front of the house.
On your left is a modern kitchen with high-end appliances, plenty of cabinet storage and a very large counter area that doubles as a
dining table (the sink can be covered with a panel). On your right is a large ‘L’ style sofa, a flat screen TV and a table. A high ceiling and plentiful windows create an open, airy and bright atmosphere.
The main bedroom is located on the right side of the house and includes a queen-sized bed. Large glass patio doors provide the breath-taking view of the ocean and an easy and quick access to the swimming pool and deck area. Plentiful cabinet, storage and closet space is provided. The large ensuite includes a shower and twin basins and mirrors. On the opposite side, a smaller bedroom presents similar views. Here you will also find a fully equipped laundry room (washer, dryer and basin), another bathroom/shower and a child bedroom with a bunk bed.
Each room is equipped with air conditioning and framed with beautifully finished natural wood ceilings – which are high and provide a feeling
of spaciousness throughout. But because the house is in the hills close to the ocean, a fresh sea breeze is a reliable companion – the cool air feels like natural air conditioning and easily flows throughout the house once the patio doors are opened to invite it in.
And when the sea breeze fails, the mountain breeze will pick up the slack – another great benefit to this location! The living area and two bedrooms all open into the large front patio, covered by a roof to ensure you can enjoy the space and the view at any time of day or year – tropical rain or the hot midday sun will not deter you from relaxing, firing up the barbecue or enjoying social gatherings.
A pool located just in front of the patio compliments the space and will provide the perfect setting for observing the crimson Pacific Ocean sunsets. An open-air shower is located besides the pool.
But if you are looking for a change of scenery or an adventure – beautiful unspoiled beaches, seaside cafes and tourist attractions
like deep sea fishing, horseback riding and ziplining are located just a short drive away. And the nearby towns of Ojochal, Palmar Norte,
Cortes and Uvita hold all the amenities you will ever need here – supermarkets, shops, restaurants and cafes, car mechanics, dentists, vets,
and many many others are just a short drive away.
With such an exceptional view, surroundings, ease of access and proximity to some of the most sough-after areas of Costa Rica,
this house is hot and will be gone in a bright flash – don’t miss out!
