Unique Custom Home For Sale in Esparza, Costa Rica - Designed for the tropics US $325K
This 3-bed 2.5-bath, 2,700 sq. ft. home was designed in 2008 for tropical living. A contemporary open-concept is highlighted by expansive windows that blur the boundaries between interior and exterior space. Charming natural elements round out this one-of-a-kind home.
Spacious terraces are designed for entertaining or simply enjoying the tropical lifestyle. Extensive research on tropical home features was completed prior to construction. Prevailing wind direction and solar reflection was taken into account in order to enhance cooling effects.
The result is excellent passive ventilation through upper level windows and further facilitated by open concept, 25-foot ceilings and ceiling fans (with hand carved cherry wood blades). There are 3 large, covered terraces positioned to enhance breezes, and each has a ceiling fan.
The home is solidly constructed of 4x4 steel beams. The roof has deep overhangs, with an insulated ceiling to soften the sound of rain on the metal roof. Windows are bronze aluminum with ¼" thick glass with security film that requires 170 lbs of pressure per linear inch to break it; it also provides 90% reduction in UV rays thereby protecting interior furniture and carpets from fading. A video--intercom system links the house with the electric front entrance gate.
The main house interior has a great room with soaring ceilings and hand carved cherry wood fans; a master bedroom with bath, hand carved ceiling fan, and walk-in closet; a private terrace guest bathroom; computer room with high-speed Internet connection; and a bedroom/sitting room with full bathroom & patio. An Artist Studio, or third bedroom casita, is located in a separate structure with a garage/workshop.
A rancho with a two-person Jacuzzi spa is nestled into a fragrant garden and welcomes people to the outdoor area. Gardens define the 5560 sq. meter property (1.3 acres) and are filled with mature fruit trees such as mango, bananas, orange, lemon, lime and grapefruit. Many ornamental trees and flowers fill the lush, tropical landscape. The entire property is fenced and walled for complete privacy.
The home is located in Esparza, a wonderful small town that blends the old world and new. It has a low crime rate and is close to Costa Rica's Pacific coast via the new San Jose-Caldera highway. This centrally located Costa Rica home is just minutes away from banks, supermarkets, drugstores, hospitals, and all modern conveniences.
The home itself has a perfect location for walking, mountain-biking and hiking. Many Costa Rica attractions and adventures such as surfing, bird watching, golf, canopy tours, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, diving, snorkeling, fishing, waterfalls, hiking, butterfly gardens and more are within a one-hour drive.
This is truly a special, one-of-a kind house, located in the up-and-coming area of Esparza.
Appliances stay with the home and include: 2 refrigerators, cook top, oven, washer/dryer, freezer, outdoor Jacuzzi, hot water tank, and electric lighting fixtures.
