Location: Platanillo, Dominical, Costa Rica
Within this lovely fenced property with a convenient electric gate, is a beautiful home surrounded by jungle. Located just a 10-minute walk to the village of Platanillo, where you will find grocery stores, bakery, meat market, restaurants, bar, doctor's office, church and community hall, etc.
The property is approximately 423 meters above sea level, where the cooler mountain breezes and less humidity provide a comfortable climate. Yet Dominical Beach is just a 15-minute drive away. The second-largest city in Costa Rica is San Isidro, which is about a 30-minute drive from the great city shopping.
This 2,131 sq. ft. home has had thoughtful renovations to make this modern, open concept home a true treasure. New tile floors and high ceilings add to the spacious, open feel of the home.
The large new kitchen features easy-clean stainless steel countertops and backsplash, and double stainless steel sinks with a stylish faucet. Solid wood cabinets, a large fridge, six-burner gas range with an Italian range hood are some other features. There is 220 wiring if one prefers an electric stove.
One of the 3 bedrooms off the kitchen is currently used as a storage room and food pantry. The guest bedroom and master bedroom each have their own full bathrooms. There is a spacious walk-in closet in the master bedroom with a ceiling fan and windows for good air circulation.
A unique feature is an indoor small heated soaking pool for a refreshing dip on a hot day or a relaxing soak with a glass of wine in the evening. The third bathroom is conveniently located just around the corner for rinsing off.
A bonus room off the pool area is currently used as an art studio with a sink and running water. This could become a great home office, another bedroom, a home gym/spa -- many possibilities!
The quaint private backyard with jungle and mountain views has a great outdoor kitchen area with BBQ, a 4 burner stove topper, and a pizza oven for fun entertaining.
Cement steps take you down to the orchard with many fruit trees -- banana, mango, star fruit, mangosteen, guanabana, etc. There is a pineapple patch as well!
If that is not enough, there is also a guest cottage that is currently used as a 5 star Airbnb. It is studio style with a full kitchen, double bed, nightstand, kitchen table set, and a very nice bathroom with a large shower. Perfect for family and guests or carry on as an Airbnb for extra income.
