Location: Dominical, Costa Rica
Casa Pagoda Escaleras, Dominical
This unique, three-level four bedroom home boasts some of the most dramatic views available in the area. The viewscape is breathtaking and includes rocky headlands, the world-famous Whale's Tail rock reef, Caño Island, the Osa Peninsula and even sunset on the water during the summer months. The elevation is approx 1000 feet above sea level which gives the site a lofty feel, offers more moderate temperatures but still puts you within a five minute drive to the coastal highway. The turn-off point from the coastal highway is about halfway between the center of Uvita and the town of Dominical, making the location not only very desirable but also very convenient. The house itself has been a full time residence but also lends itself to vacation rentals given the bedroom count, generous outdoor living areas, swimming pool and landscaped gardens which invite toucans and monkeys daily. The lower level features an independent two bedroom apartment. The middle or main entry level has an open concept great room (modern, remodeled kitchen with pantry) that takes in the powerful views through large windows on the ocean facing side. The upper level incorporates a reading area, small bedroom suitable for children or an office and an en-suite (remodeled/up-graded) master bedroom on the southern side. The roof and outdoor decking are very sturdy (owner is an engineer), and drainage systems and other important features for the tropics are well built and maintained. The one acre property is fully fenced, has a convenient electric gate and the parking can accommodate up to ten vehicle; for this reason and many others the house is very well suited for entertaining (read: people like the pool and view too). The property is not part of any formal HOA, so there are no obligatory dues or restrictions. The house also has direct access to fiber optic internet service and has a locked storage area and garage - several elements which make for practical usage. A combination of location, views, turnkey (furnishings and appliances included) conveyance, lush gardens, supporting features and charm make this a very attractive option in the current market.
