STUNNING TWO STOREY EUROPEAN-STYLE HOUSE WITH AMAZING
LAKE ARENAL AND VOLCANO VIEWS FOR ONLY $265,000
Built in 2012, this 135 sq meter (1,341 sq foot) house, inspired by Huf Haus, is constructed solidly of
steel, rebar block, structural concrete and glass, and sits on a 1,340 sq m lot (approx 1/3 acre). Large,
high quality Europa sliding doors and 10mm tempered glass windows offer spectacular, 180 degree
uninterrupted views of Lake Arenal and the Arenal, Tenorio and Miravalles volcanos.
bedrooms comprise a master and guest both with en-suite bathrooms, one with full size bath and the
other with a wet room walk in shower. Both bedrooms have large fitted closets. The open plan
living/dining/kitchen area has high vaulted ceilings creating a light, airy living space. The spacious
"floating" balcony affords spectacular views of the Lake and surrounding volcanoes. On the ground floor
is a large office, laundry room, half-bathroom and security closet. A large floor to ceiling sliding door
opens onto the lake facing patio area.
Outside there is a large attached car port with power and water ready to enable possible future
conversion to more living space if required. A spacious Bodega is built into the rear of the house for the
secure storage of garden tools and implements. The landscaped gardens have been designed for low
maintenance with a large paved area constructed in locally quarried, beautifully colored stone to the front
of the house, a raised bed planting area to the side and rear and easy to maintain surrounding lawns. The
newly landscaped gardens have been planted with a variety of palms, passion fruit, avocado and
grapefruit trees. More photo's and a video tour are available at http://goo.gl/F4A9pM
The house is located in a secluded and peaceful area above San Luis, yet just two minutes from the
paved road and only ten minutes drive away from the charming market town of Tilaran. The international
airport at Liberia is approximately one and a half hour drive away on major roads and the capital San
Jose, with Costa Rica's other international airport, and the city's major shopping area, Escazu, is
approximately a three hour drive away. Coco, Hermosa, Flamingo and many other gorgeous Guanacaste
beaches are reached easily in around two hours.
The house sits in an open environment and offers lush scenery with plentiful bird and wildlife on your
doorstep. A myriad of leisure activities are close by and there is a cosmopolitan community with helpful
neighbors, both Tico and Gringo. There are several of the best restaurants within easy reach and a very
popular bi-monthly Feria (farmers' market) within walking distance. Less than 1km away is the Puerto
San Luis Yacht Club with swimming pool, boat launch and marina facility providing easy access to
boating, fishing, waterskiing, and kayaking. For the more adventurous, at the top end of the Lake is Tico
Wind, world famous as a top wind surfing and kite boarding centre. Further afield at La Fortuna are world
class hot spring resorts, canopy tours and zip lining.
The house and land are owned by a Costa Rican Corporation, making the purchase a more streamlined
and less expensive exercise. House Contents and furniture, including several bespoke, custom made
items, are available by separate negotiation.
