This 3,535 sq.ft luxury private villa, with high wood ceilings and curved archways, is considered by the locals to have the best and most stunning Pacific Ocean and virgin rain forest views in all of Ojochal. In a gated community (but not a condo) called Fase 5, the lot size is almost 6,000 sq. meters. The villa has two masters with en-suites, a third double bedroom, large windowed office plus living and dining areas.
It’s called Tucan Tango because of the many toucans courting in its trees. The double wooden front doors are carved, the ocean-facing terrace has inlayed ceramic art and the upstairs landing has an art wall with sunken lights. The kitchen has an oversized Italian granite cooking island with sit-up bar for 4. Installed are GE stainless steel appliances, a stacked microwave, wall oven with warming drawer, glass stovetop, double doored LG smart fridge/freezer plus a dishwasher. Of course, there is a large built in wine rack too. The outside kitchen has a gas BBQ and burner plus a sink. The living room is large and airy, with wiring built in for a video projector & surround sound. The bedroom separation gives the 2nd floor Master Bedroom access to an upper floor and an enormous 260 sq. ft private veranda with awesome ocean and virgin rain forest vistas. It’s en-suite, with tub, master artisan ceramics and extra large double headed shower is beautifully designed.
The Master bedroom also has a 2nd floor private entrance via a unique bridge, the “Pont de jardin” which leads to the upper garden. The Master bedroom on the ground floor east wing is also very large (room for a Queen & single bed) and has an en-suite with shower. It has the same high ceilings and breath-taking view of the rain forest and ocean. The garden bedroom, also on the ground floor, has a private 4 ft walkway to it’s almost en-suite 3-piece bathroom. The bedroom has large windows to view the back gardens and forest. There is also a large office with an L shaped table for two computer stations plus a laundry room with washer & dryer and a “bodega”. All bedrooms and the large 2nd floor office have AC but you won’t need to use it due to the breezes coming down from the mountain at night & up from the ocean during the day.
In the gardens are exotic flowers, plants and mature fruits ranging from bananas to papayas, pineapples to coconuts and mandarines to lemons. A mature Ylang Ylang tree scents the house with a Channel-like perfume every night. Behind the fruit trees lies the rain forest covered mountains.
The villa Tucan Tango’s ‘WOW!’ feature’ is a stunning, 43 ft long, deep, curved, infinity edge pool that stretches along the front of the terrace. Completely private, it is surrounded by ‘corolina’, a natural porous stone that never heats up in the sun or becomes slippery when wet. Submerged in the pool is a seat for 4 people. There is also a 4 inch ledge that traverses the deep-end infinity wall, allowing guests to stand in the deep end as they admire the vista or the formations of parrots or pairs of scarlet macaws that noisily fly past. Fiber-optic ‘firefly’ fountains that spurt controlled fingers of water over the pool are also installed; the only house in Costa Rica with them. At night they look like fingers of coloured light. There are also LED in-pool lights installed, whose colour can be set remotely. Finally there is a pool sail with fully retractable posts for shade during the hot season.
There are resident toucans, parrots, orupendulas and monkeys every day. Scarlet macaws fly right over the pool every morning and evening. Sunsets are simply spectacular.
Additional Buildings include a workshop with fan that is large enough to also hold a Yamaha Rhino. Also a carport (with electricity) large enough for a car and 2 Yamaha Rhinos or ATVs. There is also a pool pump room that has a 2019 variable speed high efficiency 1.5 hp pump, plus a second 1/2 hp pump for the firefly fountains. High speed Internet fed by a fiber optic cable, so there is no loss of speed during rain storms, is fast enough to stream Netflicks movies in 4K. There is also cat5 cable wired from the office to the living room. 4g Cellular phone service is excellent with direct line of site to the Kolbi transmission tower. In late 2021 5g internet will also beam from this tower. The designer gates are remotely operated with battery back up.
As of late 2021 a new road under construction to the Costanerra highway is expected to open, allowing you to drive to it in only 5 minutes!
The price for the Tucan Tango estate is US$695,000.00. There is also a two bedroom guest house on the plot above Tucan Tango that can house a grounds-keeper or guests. It is named Casa Aracari. It too has many banana and lemon trees, plus a vegetable patch. There is room for a pool too. “Casa Aracari” sells for US$300,000. Purchased together the two are discounted to $950,000.00.
If you enjoy good architecture, design, privacy, abundant wildlife and enjoy a house that you can entertain in, that’s cooled by the winds, you should consider Tucan Tango as your new home.
