This beautiful 3 bedroom home is located in the cool and breezy hills of Platanillo, only minutes from some of the most unique waterfalls in Costa Rica and 20 minutes from the beaches of Playa Dominical. A smooth and easy two-wheel drive leads you to this impressive new home in Platanillo and once you walk through the front door you won’t want to leave.
Platanillo offers a private, rural, and safe feeling without the sense of being too remote. Neighbors ride through town on their horses or ATVs and offer a hospitable and respectful energy to the area. Not too far away are multiple waterfalls to explore including the incredible 300 foot Chontales Waterfall and the increasingly popular Nauyaca Waterfall.
Platanillo offers an amazing combination of the best elements of Costa Rica. For example, wildlife such as monkeys, sloths, and exotic birds are seen on a daily basis. The climate and soil offer wonderful opportunities to plant an array of fruit trees and flowers. 10 minutes away is the popular Organic Farmer’s market in Tinamastes where the local community can gather, share, and socialize. These are so many places to explore in the area that you will have no shortage of things to do.
Rock Solid Concrete Construction with Exotic Hardwood Finishes
The home totals approximately 2,500 square feet of construction including the patio and pool area with outdoor shower. The entire home is built from solid concrete and valuable laurel hardwood was used for the cabinetry, windows, and doors. The living room space offers a huge open area that is great for relaxing and feeling the breeze flow through the home while you sit under the 20+ foot high vaulted hardwood ceilings. The home’s open layout makes it easy to move to each area where you can go to and from the pool to the bedrooms.
The kitchen is another beautiful focal point of the home with custom hardwood cabinetry and durable granite countertops. There is also a convenient island for preparing dishes and/or sitting for a coffee or meal. Across from the kitchen is a comfortable dining space with a wood dining room table that can accommodate 6 people.
The master bedroom is spacious and comfortably fits a king size bed along with another couch if desired. The view looks out onto the patio, pool, and out towards the rainforest covered mountains. The walk-in closet is spacious and leads into the master bathroom with a dual vanity sink and large shower.
The second and third bedrooms are quite impressive as well and each offers its own unique view. One looks out from two separate windows towards the pool area and mountains with an immense solid laurel hardwood headboard behind the bed. The third bedroom receives more light from the sunrise and works great for either a bedroom or an office. Both bedrooms share a bathroom with a shower. All rooms are accessed by beautiful hardwood sliding doors and have new air conditioning units installed.
The home is perched on the upper part of a 1.57-acre land parcel that is surrounded by flat usable area as well as a large gentle rolling pasture down below that can be used for gardening, horses, animals, or further development. Directly to the left of the property, there is a huge jungle canopy that borders a freshwater stream. This provides stunning views, offers lots of privacy, and serves as a natural wildlife corridor. There are constant opportunities for birdwatching, monkey sightings and other types of exotic wildlife that live in the area.
