Gorgeous open air layout, 3 en suite bedrooms, pool, 2 wheel drive access, an additional building site, an unattached abode for security and housekeeping, and impeccably maintained, this property is perfect for the faint of heart.
The house comes furnished with everything needed (some in duplicate) to either live in, rent out, or a combination of both. All furnishings, African, Thai and Indonesian artworks, pool and garden care tools, and kitchen items included. There are also 2 trundle beds on wheels that are stored under the beds for the rental business. So with the 1 King sized and 2 Queen sized beds, along with the 2 trundle beds, there is bedding enough for a small army.
The present owner purchased the land and then oversaw the building back in 2008. The house stands in what looks to be near-new condition with no evidence of the interim years of use. The seller says that she “overbuilt” the house. For those familiar with the foundation technology, she utilized 25 Ram Jack piers in the foundation, ensuring that its not going anywhere.
Located on the north side of Uvita, you are about 5 minutes to the grocery store and Uvita’s other amenities. You are also situated in the heart of the area’s tourism attractions. The present owner has kept detailed records, (down to the daily kilowatt consumption) so that the new owner will know exactly what to expect from this home.
Despite its nearness to town, you are surrounded by Costa Rica’s gorgeous jungles. In addition to the live-in help, the gardener is a specialist in the cultivation of the heliconia (read: bird of paradise) family of exotic tropical flowers. The house sits amidst a dazzling array of mature tropical flowers and fruits.
The open air design, where the only enclosed (4 walled) areas are the bathrooms, bedrooms and storage. The bedrooms all have A/C. The living room, dining room and kitchen are all open air and that area of the house has 4 elegant ceiling fans. The kitchen features organic Costa Rican stone countertops and a 3 place breakfast bar as well as a pass-through window to an outside sitting area. The pool is very loosely described as a “T” configuration with the stem of the T entering into the living space. This design takes full advantage of Costa Rica’s world famous perfect climate, year round.
The applications of this property are clear. Its current use as a rental stands as testament to that usage. However, for re-locators that wish to live in Costa Rica full-time, this house would be very comfortable and easy to live in. For the migrator who wants to rent the house out but block out times during the year when they and their friends and family can be there it would serve very well also. The additional building site provides for yet more expansion if desired.
