This is the last large estate of its kind available in the high-end Escaleras area of Dominical. A unique 72-acre gem with creeks and streams that cross the compound, creating a spectacular waterfall with private swimming holes. It is a perfect place known for its cool climate, spectacular coastal views, and close proximity to some of the most popular attractions in Costa Rica. The climate is cooled by gentle winds blowing off of the Pacific Coast during the day and refreshing mountain breezes flowing down the Talamanca Mountain Range at night, creating beautiful tropical days in the 80° and a comfortable 70° at night. The Escaleras area is one of the oldest and established neighborhoods in the region, making it one of the most sought-after communities in Dominical.
This luxury estate sits on the largest land parcel available in the community. The 72-acre property is perched on a ridgeline overlooking Dominical and up the Northern coastline. From multiple locations on the property, you will be able to enjoy panoramic ocean views stretching up to Manuel Antonio National Park. A highlight of the estate is a majestic 40-foot waterfall connected by 500+ meters of natural freshwater streams flowing throughout the pristine primary rainforest. There are several fully stocked fishing ponds around the property connected by internal trails and walking bridges. The waterfalls, streams, ponds, and rainforest can all be accessed through a network of internal roads that have been established throughout the property. In essence, you can own your own private nature sanctuary located in the heart of one of the most desirable places to live in Costa Rica!
The property is a complete entertaining compound combining modern comforts set inside of a lush rainforest environment. The offering includes a five-bedroom home with two master suites, a grand living room with vaulted ceilings, a wrap around covered balcony, and a large infinity swimming pool overlooking the ocean. Both master bedrooms feature large glass windows with expansive views up the coast. From the suites and the master baths, you will be able to enjoy the beautiful outdoor setting. All of the bedrooms include ample closet space and have access to the covered balconies. The home also includes a separate three-car garage with an upstairs bedroom with its own private balcony. The property also includes a two-bedroom guest house that is currently being used to house the caretaker. It has been landscaped so that the guest house can’t be seen from the main home. There are flowering and fruiting trees throughout the compound, that keep the main home from being visible from the road and neighbors.
Located throughout the home is an array of beautiful hand-carved wooden finishes. From the living spaces to the private quarters, you will discover custom 3D artwork depicting different natural scenes and local wildlife. The inside living space has an open flow between the kitchen/living room and the outside dining/patio area. An impressive mural has been painted on the wall above the living room. The artwork depicts the property's natural rainforest setting, reminding visitors of the amazing setting that is located in the estate's private 72-acre "backyard".
Costa Rica lends itself to an adventure and this property connects you to that adventure! Capable of handling large events, the estate can easily accommodate large functions yet it still retains the feel of a private home. There is a clear division between sleeping quarters and the shared common space, providing respite for those looking for peace and quiet vs guests who are not ready to turn in for the night. An extensive area around the house is covered, providing shady lounge areas near the pool and allowing outdoor entertaining to continue rain or shine.
The outdoor amenities include a grilling station with a long counter, a covered smoker, and a walk-up pool bar, ready to serve all your guests needs. An additional gaming space can be found under the house, that is currently set up with a ping-pong table and plenty of room to add more gaming options. As with the main home, the views are equally impressive from all of the outdoor entertainment areas. Rounding out the "all ages" entertainment options on the property, you will find a custom skateboarding half-pipe and a tranquil yoga platform overlooking the Pacific.
The property is located approximately 15 to 20 minutes from downtown Dominical. The community has a laid-back feeling that was created years ago by surfers, families, naturalist and adventure seekers visiting the area. Dominical offers an all organic market, a regional grocery store, and local fruit stands. Along with local sodas (small typical restaurants), there is a variety of restaurant to choose from including Chinese, Thai, Seafood and a local brewery. From Manuel Antonio to Ojochal, there are multiple places to enjoy in the area. Go deep sea fishing at the Quepos Marina, go whitewater rafting on the Savegre River, go whale watching at Marino Ballena National Park, or visit the sea caves in Ojochal. Each town is unique in its own way and has different allures.
If you are taking a luxury home tour in Dominical, make sure you ask your Costa Rica Real Estate Service professional to give you a personal showing of the property. You will see for yourself that there is nothing else like it on Costa Rica's South Pacific Coast.
