This stunning 4,500-square-foot residence is situated on 3.5 acres within a secure, gated community. The breathtaking views encompass the jungle valley, mountains, and the Pacific Ocean, providing a captivating backdrop, especially during beautiful sunsets. Over half of the property is professionally landscaped, creating a picturesque park-like setting with walkways, landscape furniture, and an angel statue crafted by a renowned local artist. As you explore the grounds, you’ll discover flourishing fruit trees and rare orchids. The entire property is expertly fenced to ensure the safety of your dogs, offering ample space to roam, along with a smaller fenced ”run” for more contained activities. The handcrafted ”tree of life” iron gate adds a touch of exquisite craftsmanship that complements the surrounding ambiance. Despite its complete privacy at the end of the road, the property is conveniently located only 800 meters from the main highway.

This furnished home features three bedrooms and three bathrooms, accompanied by an office and a gym that could easily be converted into additional bedrooms, transforming it into a five-bedroom residence. The master bedroom is designed for optimal enjoyment of the beautiful views, featuring a spacious window seat and a separate entrance to the oversized patio for seamless indoor-outdoor living. The master bathroom boasts elegant finishes, an oversized Jacuzzi-style bathtub with water and air jets, including lights for the ultimate relaxation experience. A separate water closet ensures privacy, and there is ample storage space for those with more than just flip-flops!

The gourmet kitchen is both lovely and inviting, equipped with high-end stainless steel built-in appliances. The pantry is intelligently designed to serve as both a dry room and a safe room. The open-concept plan seamlessly connects the kitchen to the living area and extends to the patio with its breathtaking views, likely to become your favorite spot.

The exceptionally large patio and deck feature large dance mirrors and include a built-in BBQ and outdoor kitchen with a sink, fridge, cabinetry, lighting, and a ventilated hood fan. The expansive pool is perfect for outdoor entertaining, offering opportunities to watch wildlife, float in relaxation, enjoy the tiled outdoor shower, and appreciate the elaborate mood lighting system into the evening—a perfect space for entertaining guests. As a bonus, you can enjoy your favorite music through the sound system spanning the patio, pool area, master bedroom, and bathroom. Adjust the volume right from the jacuzzi for the perfect mood.

The home showcases beautiful custom woodwork throughout, including kitchen cabinetry, the front door, teak center island, hood fan, laundry room, and all closets. Everything has been constructed with meticulous attention to detail and high-quality North American-style craftsmanship. The secure, gated community includes an on-site caretaker family residing near the gate. Additionally, the house is equipped with a comprehensive security system featuring sensors, video, cameras, and audio for both the house and the property. Generous exterior lighting ensures peace of mind. If an unexpected guest arrives, the video and audio system at the gate allows you to check without leaving the comfort of your home, and it’s well-protected with backup battery sources.

Designed with energy efficiency in mind, the home incorporates LED lights throughout, a solar hot water system with an electrical backup, an energy-efficient pool pump, and propane-powered appliances. There’s a setup for a generator if desired. While air conditioning is available in the master bedroom, the ceiling fans throughout are more than adequate, thanks to the elevation and cool mountain breezes.

Wide ceramic walkways surround the entire house for convenience, and a separate bodega provides ample room for storage or even parking for a quad. High-speed internet and cable TV are readily available.

Every aspect of the house and the property is carefully designed to offer privacy, peace, and tranquility, while still providing easy access to all your needs. Conveniently located in the peaceful community of Platanillo, it’s just a few minutes from the highway, 15 minutes from the laid-back beach town of Dominical, and 25 minutes from all the conveniences in the towns of Uvita or San Isidro.

If you’ve been dreaming of a peaceful Costa Rican retreat with the wonders of the jungle and ocean at your doorstep, stunning views, peace of mind, tranquility, and cool, comfortable mountain breezes, your search ends here!
