Exceptional properties which include a large-ready to build principal site with an existing guest house of premium build quality, and only minutes to town center are increasingly difficult to find in popular Uvita. At Casa Keike, you can immediately enjoy the best of Costa Rica living and plan your dream tropical home surrounded by serenity. The ocean views were created without disturbing the natural landscape which provides a sanctuary for wildlife and shade below.
With 6.2 acres of varying terrain, this property is special in how it lays out with a lower flat section along the creek where you will find an entry gate and an existing one bedroom caretaker/rental home. From here the property climbs to a higher elevation of almost 900’ where the ocean breeze, along with the natural cooling effect of the creek, will maintain an ideal tropical climate. At the highest point of the property there is another gated private entry and studio home which was just fully remodeled to standards of exceptional quality and premium finishes. This one bedroom home sits atop an over sized 2 car garages with an additional secure room to safely store your personal belongings while not present.
The studio home features solid poured concrete construction and floors of Purple Heart hardwood which can no longer be harvested in Costa Rica. They are stunning and were highlighted with the open and airy design. The just completed remodel includes entirely new bathroom, kitchen, electrical work, lighting fixtures, appliances, double pane windows and the balcony was enclosed with screening and fully retractable glass double pane doors. European fixtures were utilized throughout and no detail was ignored.
An internal road continues past the studio home and garage to a larger principal building site which can be used to build the house and pool of your dreams. The sides of the road are lined with fruit trees and a private trail on the property which gradually winds its way down to the creek and caretakers home below. Along the creek is a densely forested corridor which is a wildlife sanctuary and incredible backdrop to this property which retains it's outstanding privacy, while being minutes to town.
