Location: Dominical, Costa Rica
This new property is in the Escaleras neighborhood, which is one of the most popular places to buy a home in Costa Rica. Due to the area’s cool mountain setting and close proximity to the beach, Escaleras is definitely the place to be. There is nowhere else quite like this in Costa Rica, which is why real estate in this specific part of the country has become such a hot commodity.
This newly constructed, single-level residence features an open floor plan with design elements that tactfully open the home up to gorgeous outdoor spaces. The vaulted ceilings and large sliding glass doors in the main living area create a smooth transition between two different worlds.
The views from the western side of the home are dominated by blue hues with a tropical pool overlooking the Pacific Ocean. To the east, the setting completely transforms into an emerald green rainforest setting with old-growth trees and a natural freshwater creek flowing in the backyard. With nothing but rainforest-covered mountainside behind the property, here you will enjoy complete privacy – other than the Howler Monkeys and Toucans that are regularly seen here.
Two master suites on the western side of the home feature ocean views, private bathrooms, spacious closets, and direct access to the pool lounge area. The two bedrooms located on the eastern side of the home feature ample storage space and direct access to the rainforest backyard. The home also includes a fully equipped kitchen with granite counters, a laundry room, a storage room, and a third full bathroom located off of the living room. Luxurious Guanacaste wood finishes were used throughout the entire home including custom kitchen cabinets, windows, and doors.
Recently added is a two-car garage and on top of this garage is a one-bedroom/one-bath guest apartment that is currently being used as a gym. This area is currently equipped with a large amount of modern gym equipment.
The property is almost one acre with beautifully landscaped grounds, spacious front and back yards, an outdoor shower, ample parking with a covered carport, and room to spare for a caretaker’s home, and it is entirely fenced making it perfect for pet owners. The property is easily accessed off a well-maintained public road with controlled gated access.
