Lake Arenal, Costa Rica, real estate for sale
Unique family compound reduced to $850,000
H152 2 new luxury lakeview homes, 6.9 landscaped acres - $1,100,000
The 3400-sq-ft luxury home is situated for full enjoyment of the lake vistas.
The larger and lower of the two homes on this beautiful acreage is Casa Fiesta (seen here in photo above), a 3400-square-foot home with 3 bedroooms and 2.5 baths. Built to get the most out of the glorious vistas, the house has a huge great room, many large windows and sliding doors, and a wide veranda all along the lake side. This and the second home above it, Casa del Lago, have been built by members of the same family. Health problems have now dictated the sale of the property with the upper home of 3,000 square feet not yet occupied. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and an apartment in the semi-detached garage. In addition, three other building sites have been prepared on the wonderfully landscaped property. This family compound is located 2.5 miles south of Nuevo Arenal on the road to the Arenal Volcano, which is about a half-hour away. Next to the entrance drive is the Lajas restaurant complex, where there is a boat launch. The homes are being sold furnished, though appliances have not yet been added to Casa del Lago. The family says that all offers will be considered. The property is in the process of being sub-divided so that the two homes and several lots can be sold separately. Someone buying the whole compound may thus have the future opportunity to profit from partial sales.
The two homes are largely hidden in the hillside forest above the lake. The wide patio of the lower house, furnished with two sets of outdoor furniture, is a wonderful place to enjoy the balmy climate and the views.
From the water, the houses appear almost entirely hidden by the trees, yet, as can been from the patio of one of the homes, there are broad lawns, and the lake is clearly seen.
The excellent lake vistas invlude the view from one of the patios. This bedroom view looks toward the north from one of the bedrooms.
This patio view looks directly across the lake while the bedroom view is to the northweest.
A handsome entrance on the lake highway introduce a wide, curving concrete drive that leads to the two homes and the 3 prepared building sites. The acreage is beautifully landscaped and is also surrounded by wildlife-rich forest.
The property is beautifully landscaped, as can be seen at the entrance on the lake highway and on extensive level areas above, though the lake view makes the acreage look almost precipitous.
A colorful aricari, big-beaked like a toucan, visits it banana-laden feeder. A howler monkey looks over the compound from the neighboring forest.
The compound is surrounded by forest well populated by wildlife, which, like this colorful aricari and a strong-voiced howler monkey, frequently visit.
