Lake Arenal, Costa Rica, real estate for sale

H155 Half-acre of creek-side beauty with furnished 3BR 2BA home - $120,000

In a small forested valley on the outskirts of the traditional village of Tierras Morenas, this is a seemingly isolated Shangri-la about 20 minutes from Tilaran. There's a beautiful stream flowing past and actually into the property for part of its travel. The gardens are beautiful, a horticultural delight while tall trees and natural forest growth have been retained. The charming village of Tierras Morenas is at the end of the paved road that comes up from the lake highway through Sabalito, so the drive into Tilaran is easy. Beauty, tranquility, and privacy characterize this fine little semi-tropical yet temperate refuge. One of the three bedrooms is currently used as an office. In addition to the two bathrooms, there is a tiled outdoor shower. Don't miss the photos of the village of Tierras Morenas at the bottom of this page.
