Location: San Vito, Costa Rica
This immaculate, custom-built home with 3,228 square foot (300 square meters) of living space includes 3 bedrooms and 2-1/2 baths and is situated on 11 beautiful acres (4.48 hectares). Boasting one of the most unique gardens in San Vito, this special property is home to over 400 species of Palm Trees and 200 species of Heliconias. The amount of love and time put into this property and its gorgeous gardens is visible the moment you enter through the front gate!

Drive up the long, beautiful driveway and it’s like you’ve entered another world. The first thing you’ll notice is your grand entrance area and the rich Ron-ron doors and furniture throughout the home, all included with the purchase. The kitchen comes with all custom-made upper and lower cabinets, refrigerator, electric stove and granite countertops. You’ll enjoy all of the entertaining space in your open floor plan which includes your large dining room, living room with built-in bar and sitting room area.

Behind the kitchen is your 2 car garage, laundry room, extra storage room with access to the upper attic space spanning the full length of the house (with electric, storage, steel beams).

The master bedroom has a full bath with gorgeous cabinetry, Jacuzzi tub, separate shower and grand master closets. The two additional bedrooms, each with patio doors to the outside terrace, also come with custom made closets. There is also a full bath and office located nearby.

The ceiling throughout the house and garage is made from beautiful Amarillo wood. All of the furniture is custom-made from Ron-ron wood and is included with the purchase of the home. The owner purchased all of the Ron-ron wood 30 years ago and kept it in storage until he purchased the property 10 years ago. It took 4 craftsmen, 3 years to custom-make all of the furniture and doors specifically for this home. A little information about the Ron-ron tree – Its wood is highly valuable due to its heaviness, resistance to rotting and beautiful coloring. These trees are now an endangered tree and the remaining forests here in Costa Rica are being monitored via satellite.

Off the back of the home, accessible from the living room and the bedrooms, is your spacious covered terrace area. There is an outdoor sink for gardening and a separate exterior bathroom for your pool guests. Your pool is 5 x 7 meters in size and 1-1/2 meters deep. The pool is heated with solar panels located on the roof of your home.

Additional buildings on the property include a 25 square meter bodega built to match the style of the home. The bodega is spacious and has an upper storage area. There are two greenhouses located behind your bodega.

Your property is completely fenced in. The home security system includes an electric front gate with intercom. All electrical wiring is underground and there is room for 5 more underground telephones lines. Your gas water heater is located on the outside wall of the home and your water is provided by AYA. Satellite TV is also installed.

The property totals over 4.48 hectares with 2 hectares reforested with native trees. Bamboo grows along the fence line against the neighboring property, near the driveway.

The main part of the property is a true labor of love with over 400 species of Palm Trees from all around the world! Seeds for these trees have come from places like Madagascar, Venezuela, India, Australia and Malaysia, to name a few. There are also over 200 varieties of Heliconias planted throughout the property for your enjoyment.

There is a built-in watering system underground to help with maintenance of the property. In addition to the time the 2 owners spend working in and enjoying their garden, only 1 full-time gardener works on the property and has done so for many years. This is a small price to pay to live in such a beautiful, peaceful environment. The current owners purchased the land and built their special home 10 years ago. They feel in another 5 years the garden should be fully grown.

Palms seeds from this property have been sold and shared with other palm tree growers who import and export their crops. This property has so many possibilities!

Enjoy the property and its surrounding beauty as your personal retreat. It also has the potential to become a nursery, with the additional space in the reforested 2 hectares of the property. There is also room for additional homes in the developed part of the property, in front of the main home.

Asking price is $1,150,000 which includes all Ron-ron custom-built furniture, plants, appliances. The only thing not included is the artwork displayed throughout the home.
