Big price drop - this won't last!
This is an elegant two-story home built in Italian Mediterranean style with concrete block and steel. The home is located in the area of San Salvador de Baru in the Tinamastes valley, with westward-facing, white-water, sunset ocean views of the Pacific and an in-your-face view of the gorgeous Diamante Waterfall, the highest in Costa Rica!
The home features high-quality windows and doors. The home is energy efficient with all underground utilities and LED lighting. The home was built with artistic flare and features "trayed" ceilings throughout.
Water is from the local Asada (community water) and there is a German-made electric on-demand (tank-less) system for hot water. The home is adorned with textured porcelain ceramics and lighting imported from Italy.
The grounds comprise a full hectare (2.5 acres) of manicured lawn and jungle area. In the trees surrounding the home, you will see a wide variety of wildlife, including monkeys, sloths, and many species of birds.
San Salvador de Baru is popular with ex-pats who have created multiple sustainable communities in the area. Each week in the nearby village of Tinamastes, there is an organic farmer's market where many of those ex-pats sell home-made produce and products. The city of San Isidro de El General, perhaps the fastest-growing in Costa Rica, is only about 30 to 40 minutes away, as is the beach at Playa Dominical.
