Location: Dominicalito, Costa Rica
Ideally situated on a very private 5.75acres of lush jungle, tropical fruit trees and a flowing stream, this newly remodeled 2 bedroom home with a bonus room (potential 3rd bedroom) boasts panoramic ocean views looking down at Dominicalito Bay and the surrounding mountain peaks. During the nights you can hear the waves crashing on the beach below. The old-growth jungle surrounding the property provides corridors for passing troops of monkeys, toucans and many other species of wildlife. Below the house, the land rolls gently down the length of the property offering more room for expansion for another home and more gardens. With a location only 6 minutes from the closest beach, this house is perfect for the beach lovers who enjoy elevated ocean views from a private jungle setting.
In 2019 both the interior and exterior of the home were remodeled. Originally the house was built from concrete block with a concrete roof slated for adding a second floor. The remodel included new interior & exterior paint and stone flooring throughout the home, custom stone in the showers, new plumbing, a covered carport, a covered rooftop patio/BBQ area and much more. The main level of the home includes two-bedroom suites on opposite sides, separated by a large fully equipped laundry room. There is also a space used for an office that could be converted into another bedroom. The newly redone kitchen opens up to the spacious living room with high vaulted ceilings to maximize airflow. There is a large covered patio outside wrapping the kitchen, living room and pool. Also poolside is a covered full-size outdoor BBQ perfect for hosting friends while taking in the views. The master suite includes a balcony, a large walk-in closet, and a luxurious bathroom with a jacuzzi tub. The second bedroom features a closet, bathroom and ocean views.
The upper level of the home has a 650ft.2 rooftop patio accessed by a new outdoor spiral staircase. The patio is newly roofed and comes fully equipped with astroturf, furniture, and a full-sized BBQ setup. From the roof, the views get even better and more expansive and the consistent breezes keep you cool at any time of the day!
Private Rainforest Setting directly Bordering a River
The rainforest elements of this property and it’s private feel make it unique. There are many ocean view homes but few on lots exceeding 5.75 acres. The topography of the land and the shape of the lot separate you from your neighbors. Also adding to the privacy, this is the last property on the road allowing you to live peacefully with just the sounds of the jungle. Located throughout the property is vibrant tropical landscaping with mature fruit trees consisting of bananas, avocado, orange, lime, lemon, Mamon(rambutan) and mangos. If you like mangos, there are several trees that produce more than you can handle. In addition, the sweet smell of the tall ylang-ylang tree next to the house completes the full sensory experience reminding you that you live in paradise!
Easy Beach Access and the Surrounding Area
The closest beach access is Playa Dominicalito which is located 6 minutes directly below. At Dominicalito you will find a beautiful little beach known for its mellow waves for surfing as well as the restaurant La Parcela offering Mariscos and some of the best views in the zone! Just 5km north is the town of Playa Dominical where you will find weekly farmer’s markets, restaurants, yoga studios, a brewery and plenty of activities on offer within a short walk. For the surfers, there are numerous surf breaks both to the north and the south for all levels of ability.
Property with a Legal Water Source and Multiple Expansion Opportunities
As law’s change in Costa Rica having a registered legal water source is very important. The property has a legally concessioned freshwater well. This will allow the permissible building of additional structures on the property. There currently is a nice flat plantel well below the house that would be perfect for another small home or guesthouse. Whether you’d like a separate house for visiting
