H79 Large new furnished 2-story home with 2 cabinas on 4.5 acres - $290,000
This property has wonderful green ecological features in addition to its main attributes of view and size and newness. It is being used by owners in San Jose as a vacation home and sort of gentleman's farm, but they are now too busy to spend much time here nor to finish the balcony off the second-story master bedroom. Besides the 360-degree vistas, including a great view of Tilaran and the Guanacaste lowlands, it has nearly an acre of old-growth forest often visited by white-faced as well as howler monkeys. The house and cabinas need some attention, but a permanent dweller could coninue what these owners have accomplished and make this a really magical place. Though it overlooks the western foothills, it is only about 15 minutes from Lake Arenal, and so the owners not only ride their horses (Update: there is now just one horse) and tend their gardens but also windsurf and jet ski. The 2315-square-foot open-plan house, built in 2005-2006, is being sold furnished, a special feature being the fine kitchen cabinetry. The two cabinas are each 269 square feet. The 4.5 acres has indigenous forest, pasture, orchards, farm areas, and new trees and other plants in great profusion. There are two horses, which are included in the offering. The house is located near the village of Parcelas de Quebrada Azul on the sunset-view coastal side of the Tilaran hills that border the lake. It is about 20 minutes from Tilaran and also 25 minutes from the Interamerican Highway at Cañas.
