Stunning 17 acres, 3-bedroom home and caretaker house in the hills above Herradura just south of Villa Caletas. Only a 5 minute drive to Herradura/AutoMercado Mall and 10 minutes to Jaco, or Herradura Beach.
This is an amazing property – so close to everything, yet quiet, secluded, a mix of rain forest and pasture with no neighbours to be seen or heard. It is the ideal property for a personal nature retreat. Or if you want a hobby or horse farm, there is approximately 10 acres of land that is suitable. Lime, avocado, coconut, water apple, yucca, banana, mango and plantain grow on the property.
The last 12 months have produced a rental income of approximately $60,000, which still allows 6 weeks or more for the current owners to enjoy the house themselves.
Guest reviews are excellent. Comments we get continuously say that this house has one of the most amazing views you will see anywhere. There is a large valley below with a river and mountains encircling it. Throughout the day you are likely to see Scarlet Macaws, toucans, and iguanas, and you may also see opossum, white-faced monkeys and deer.
The home has 3 bedrooms / 2 baths and sleeps 8 people. It has maintenance-free sandstone exterior walls, Cenisero tongue & groove wood ceilings, artistically carved solid wooden doors, a curving pool deck with two more decks below, one with gazebo. Also imported Spanish tile, and unusual Guanacaste hardwood kitchen cabinets.
Air conditioning is provided in each bedroom, there are both camera and security guard systems, and good quantities of well water. A UV sterilizing system ensures potable water, and an on-demand electric water heater provides economical hot water.
