Since the air is fresh at 1200 feet above sea level, using an air conditioner is not required in this 19 Acre Ocean View Home in Platanillo. This home mixed fine luxury, security, and functional design for a pleasurable living experience in Costa Rica and was designed and physically engineered to the highest North American standards.
At the guarded entry to the property, meticulous landscaping with attention to detail begins. A second gate and a 200-foot driveway twist in the direction of the house. The entire inside of the house, the pool area, and the parking area are enclosed by a professionally erected 6-foot chain link fence with a block foundation, ensuring security for your pets. The home includes a 2000 square foot interior and a 3000 square foot covered exterior. The single-story house is constructed on a wide, level footprint, so there are no steps in the interior or exterior living areas. Olympic swimmers were consulted in the design of the 40-foot lap pool.
The inside of the house is inspiring for those who value the grandeur and warmth of exposed wood rafters and beams. Douglas Fir from British Columbia was used to create the substantial continuous beams. High cathedral ceilings and minimal vertical columns allow for an open-concept kitchen, living area, and office. Pella manufactures the best windows and doors in the US. Canet makes blinds and roll-up sunscreens. A vast island built of Ron Ron wood, a wall oven made in Canada by Frigidaire Professional, a Kraus sink, a Kohler faucet, and a Wolf stove are just a few of the unique kitchen features. It may easily be divided into two or three bedrooms, despite having only one huge bedroom and ensuite.
The 19 acres contain a year-round creek, many tiny waterfalls, natural water springs, and 3 km of well-maintained walking routes. Along with all the stunning tropical birds, butterflies, and monkeys typical of the tropical rainforest, mature fruit trees are all over the place. The house faces west, where a rainforest valley gives way to a vista of the Pacific Ocean.
The house was functionally built for longevity, durability, low maintenance, and cost-effectiveness. This consists of a three-layer roofing system for durability, impermeability, and noise reduction; an excellent drainage system for rainwater and greywater; an oversized septic tank with a tiled drain field; solar panels and a collector water tank that provides free hot water; and a solar-powered pool pump. A backup generator is installed and hooked into a second electrical panel (for important loads).
The driveway provides access to three other potential building sites on the property.
This house and property will appeal to you if you’re seeking the best in a home. It has all the features and conveniences you want for a relaxing and delightful stay—someone seeking a private rainforest reserve with 19 acres to explore.
