Location: Costa Rica
From the huge windows welcoming in natural light to the local hardwoods showcased throughout the home, this 2500sqft two story home is a serene getaway in Lagunas. The property is just at an acre in size and has plenty of room to put in a pool with an outdoor entertaining area, or maybe an additional casita for guests. The property is landscaped with tropical plants, and is surrounded by lush rainforest. Keep your eyes peeled for monkeys, small mammals, and lots of iguanas!
The first floor of the home features one bedroom and one bathroom, living room with AC, and the kitchen. The bedroom has private patio access where you can put a nice chair, sip on some local Costa Rican coffee, and enjoy the serene setting. The living room has large sliding doors that can open up to let in the fresh breeze, or keep them shut and enjoy the AC unit installed. The kitchen features local Cedar cabinets and has brand new modern appliances.
The second level of the home is a loft style bedroom with views to the Southwest giving you a pocket ocean view on a clear day and wide views of the jungle covered mountains in the distance. The loft has a private full bathroom.
A Home Built to Withstand the Elements of the Jungle
The home was constructed with a concrete frame, which is one of the most expensive materials to use in Costa Rica. The perks of having a home made of concrete are endless: withstand harsh rains and winds, low maintenance, and helps keep the house cool on the hottest days in summer.
Attached to the home is a covered and gated two car-carport. Inside the carport is secured storage and a stacked washing machine and dryer. The property is gated, and mature bamboo hedges have grown in to block out road noise and keep the property serene and private.
Though the property is located on a public road, the established high-end community of Lagunas has a strong road committee that helps keep the road well maintained all throughout the year. Residents chip in to ensure expats and guests have an easy time driving the road.
Under 10 minutes to the Beach and Under an Hour to the City
Lagunas is a high-end community with properties that range from luxury full time residences to boutique B&B stays. The community is located just 7 minutes from the beachside town of Dominical; the town is known for its powerful surf break and chill vibes. Whether you’re a surfer or nature lover, the town has something to offer for everyone. The Friday farmer’s market, called the “Eco Féria,” is a must-see! The market features all organic foods and goods sourced in the area, and is one of the only plastic free markets in Costa Rica!
40 minutes in the opposite direction is the city of San Isidro, the largest commerce city in the South Pacific region. The city offers a wide variety of shops and services to help make life a breeze in the rainforest.
This house is a must-see! 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom houses under $400k are hard to come-by, and this one checks off all the boxes for living a serene life in Southern Costa Rica.
