This two-level, neo-classical home sits in the middle of Manuel Antonio, located in the gated and popular community of El Sato, and enjoys great privacy and ocean views. The house has an established vacation rental program, excellent reviews, and nearby property management. The long private drive leading to the parking area gives it an estate-like feel, and the tropical gardens and surrounding forest keep the wildlife in close sight. There is an attached portico for covered parking and a beautiful formal entrance with a twenty-foot-high ceiling.
Upstairs is one large great room with a living area, dining area, well-appointed kitchen, pantry, storage area, and a half bath. Also, on the upper level, which features vaulted ceilings and exposed wood beam trusses, is a handy storage room. The layout is very user-friendly and visually attractive. There is also a large, covered terrace that overlooks the pool, gardens, and out towards the Pacific Ocean. This area is just as enjoyable for morning coffee as it is for sunset cocktails.
The lower level has a den/seating area with a TV, a laundry room (equipped with a washer and dryer), and three nice bedrooms. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, and the two guest bedrooms share a full bath in the same hallway. All bedrooms are full of light and have their own sliding glass door entrance to the garden with beautiful views of the grounds.
The property has great infrastructure with its own privacy gate (in addition to the gate at the entrance of the 31-lot community) a concrete driveway, retaining walls in the garden, excellent drainage, mature landscaping, external walkways and lighting, and a really great overall feel. The property is ideal for a full-time residence or as a vacation rental home. There aren't many properties in the area (and very few of them are available for purchase) that combine these many desirable elements. The overall attraction is hard to convey in the photos, so we invite you to view it personally!
