Location: Tres Rios, Costa Rica
Imagine driving over a large private bridge spanning the Coronado River and passing through an intricately decorated gate (a work of art some may say), to enter a small, tranquil, and nature-immersed community surrounded by a majestic jungle bordered by a crystal clear mountain river.
This property is one of three, located on the largest lot and the tip of the pizza-slice-shaped lot, where the perfectly manicured grounds, reminiscent of a park and landscaped with native plants and shrubs, seamlessly blend into the surrounding forest. On sale for the first time, the beautiful surroundings of this property are complimented by multiple shared amenities available for the residents of this small community. While the community is integrated into the nature that extends far in all directions of Tres Rios, the village of Ojochal, with its services, entertainment, and shopping, is only 4.5 km away.
The house is located on the end of the access road – you will arrive home after passing a spectacular waterfall with a natural swimming pool just below the falling water. A yoga platform, situated amongst the trees in front of the waterfall, is one of the many attractions of this magical place. This common area also includes a large community swimming pool, picnic area, and walkways and benches that create the perfect place for relaxation, mediation, or an early morning walk.
The home is very close to the Coronado River and offers a continuous, unobtrusive sound of the river. The jungle begins on the other side of the road and surrounds the house, on three sides, with monumental trees including several Guanacaste trees (national tree of Costa Rica). You can observe all kinds of tropical birds, butterflies, and animals straight from your home or from the hiking trails that start very close to the property.
The main area of the house is on the first floor and includes a kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a spacious living room and patio. The functional and modern kitchen, trimmed with teak wood cabinets, granite counter tops, and stainless-steel appliances, is framed with large windows overlooking the patio and jungle.
The living room gives jungle views all around, while the wide full-length patio glass door enlarges the space and, when opened, merges the living room with the patio and the nature outside. The master bedroom is designed for complete relaxation – it includes a king size bed, walk in closet, an office / reading nook, and a balcony.
The third bedroom, with a private bathroom, is located below on the ground floor. It provides privacy and has its own relaxing patio overlooking the Zen Garden and, further beyond, a very well landscaped and maintained green area.
The ground floor also contains a laundry room with large secure storage and a convenient service elevator to help transport purchases and other loads from the parking lot to the first floor and back.
The service area of the ground floor contains an efficient gas on-demand water heater. All rooms in the house are air-conditioned and have a motion sensor alarm system. High speed fibre optic internet is provided. Security cameras are installed throughout the complex.
The HOA fee is $ 250 per month, which covers a personalized lawn service, water, road and gate maintenance, and property management.
I believe there is no home anywhere in the area that has so much to offer for such a low price of $ 409,000.
