Location: Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica
UNIQUE. That is the way to describe the architecture like no other in Manuel Antonio, the close-up relationship with nature, and the number of different ways this two-house property can appeal to a variety of investors.
With over 8900 sq ft of construction, these two neighboring 4 bedroom and 2 bedroom homes can become your corporate retreat with an option to rent to vacationers, luxury rental villas, a boutique hotel, an upscale bed and breakfast or your own personal retreat.
The 2 beautiful luxury homes sit on a naturally landscaped site in a prime, convenient and central Manuel Antonio location. Within a 10 minute walk from 2 different beaches, and approximately 5 minutes from a multitude of popular restaurants, grocery and gift shops, the location is ideal for any purpose.
The whimsical architectural style is a perfect marriage of modernity and nature. Both villas are open to the jungle, yet the layout of the private and communal spaces allows one to enjoy the full richness and uniqueness of the Costa Rican jungle and its wildlife while maintaining complete privacy.
The 4 bedroom house measures 7300 sq. ft. Large communal spaces include a dining area, kitchen, two salons, a full bath, and a large pool deck. As you enter the house you notice a spectacular pool with a clear viewing window. All floors are acid etched concrete. The 4 air conditioned bedrooms each have private balconies and ensuite baths.
The main floor has the pool and deck, kitchen, dining area.
Down the floating staircase is another open living area, and 1 king bed suite and 1 queen bed suite. The lowest level has another living area as well as 2 more suites, both with king beds. There is also a jacuzzi tub on the deck of this level.
A caretaker's apartment below the house allows for live-in staff.
The 2 bedroom house, finished in 2014, is located right next door and measures approximately 1600 sq. ft. It mirrors the main house's openness to nature and modern sensibilities, while retaining its own character. There are custom touches such as the uniquely painted "cloudy sky" concrete floor, and the hand-made furniture and light fixtures.
As in the larger house, the main floor consists of an open air living room, dining area and kitchen with walk-in pantry. Down the stairs is the master suite with a massive bathroom, laundry room, dry room for storage and guest suite with living area in between. Down a spiral staircase and nestled in the landscaped garden is the pool.
There is also plenty of space on the pool level to build another bedroom and full bath, with minimum investment.
