Description

Nestled on 11.35 acres of lush land with an elevation of 900 ft, this magnificent Mexican Farmhouse-style estate offers a unique blend of tranquility and sophistication, just a scenic 15-minute drive from both the pristine beaches and the vibrant town of Playa Dominical.  The property is covered in nature and the home is tucked into the jungle.  The home has white-water ocean views of Manuel Antonio, incredible sunsets over the Pacific, and stunning mountain views in every direction.

Approaching the property through a gated driveway, you’re welcomed by incredible mature landscaping that sets the tone for the luxurious lifestyle that awaits. Enjoy the privacy this estate affords, surrounded by a captivating jungle that is home to a diverse array of wildlife, including white-faced monkeys, toucans, parrots, aracari, anteaters, oropendolas, sloths, and scarlet Macaws. Several creeks meander through the forest, enhancing the natural allure of this haven.  The property has many fruit trees including lemon, lime, water apples, mango, mangosteen, 10 varieties of bananas, mamones, star fruit, papaya, and pineapple plants.

As you enter the main house, you hear the calming sounds of the 2 fountains, the first of which is in the front courtyard, and a world of elegance unfolds. The first floor boasts an open floor plan, seamlessly connecting the living, dining, and kitchen areas with tiled floors adorned with Mexican Talavera tile. French doors lead to poolside verandas, creating a harmonious flow between indoor and outdoor living. The principal suite on this level features a bedroom with an ensuite bathroom, walk-in closet, and pool access. The bathroom is a masterpiece, showcasing an ocean-view rainfall shower, travertine tile, and a custom vanity.  The large pool and surrounding deck are amazing and the perfect place to enjoy the sunsets.

Architectural details abound, including an arched entry gate and a dramatic curved staircase with Talavera tile risers. The second floor hosts two bedrooms, each with its unique charm and access to a front veranda and a spacious terrace. The bathroom on this level is adorned with a Mexican sink and jungle murals, adding a touch of artistry to your daily routine. There is also a rooftop deck with a large solar system which supplements most of the power bill and can be connected to a backup battery for when the power is out if someone wants to expand the system.

The estate also features a casita (guest house), offering additional living space with a combined living room and kitchen, a bathroom, a bedroom, and a large veranda. This is great for guests, or if you want to rent the main house but stay on the property.  This estate is not just a home; it’s an investment opportunity.  Due to the location and view, this home would do very well as a vacation rental if that is what you are looking for.

A second building site on the property offers breathtaking ocean views and the potential for expansion.  It is far enough from the main house that you could build a second home and not even see it.  You could also segregate this second lot and sell it if you wish.

Discover a lifestyle where luxury meets nature, where the sound of rustling leaves and the call of exotic birds create a symphony of serenity. Welcome to your dream home in Lagunas—where every day is a retreat, and every moment is an opportunity to savor life’s finest pleasures.
