Location: Dominical, Costa Rica
This turnkey property sits at an ideal elevation within the sought-after mountain side of Escaleras and is surrounded by other high valued properties. At roughly 900 feet of elevation, it's a short distance to Escaleras Village, and provides a stunning vantage of the Whale's Tail, Ballena Coast line and the Osa Peninsula. The villa itself measures approx. 2,200 ft2 and is built of concrete masonry and occupies two levels. It's a sturdy and tastefully done home which was just renovated to include a new kitchen, new bathrooms, new roofing, sliding doors/windows, new decor and several other upgrades and improvements. The gated entry leads to comfortable parking right by the villa's main entrance, surrounded by mature tropical gardens.
The main level of the home has an open-concept great room, (kitchen with breakfast bar & pantry, dining area by the pool & garden, sitting/TV area and outdoor terrace), a half bath and the master bedroom with en-suite. This main level bedroom has an en-suite full bathroom, equipped with handsome fixtures & views of the Whale's Tail. There's also an inviting, private terrace off these sleeping quarters. The lower level contains the guest bedroom, also with a full bathroom and garden level terrace. Thus, giving guests the privacy of their own level and garden access.
The house has great outdoor living space and flows very nicely to hammock strewn terraces and a refreshing organic shaped pool with a lounge/sunning area. In general, the house is full of light, feels like new (given the recent renovations) and enjoys wooden ceilings with the upper level featuring exposed-beam vaulted ceilings. Colorful, mature gardens adorn the property, and a privacy wall runs fully along the road-side boundary.
There is a legal water right from the local ASADA, and one can also walk (5 - 15 minutes) to a few nice restaurants, a gourmet market, and day spa. The villa would make for an ideal home or could function brilliantly as a vacation rental. This one will surely not last long.
