Lake Arenal, Costa Rica, real estate for sale
Big addition done, price reduced to $190,000
H132 Idyllic vacation retreat with pool, stream on 1 1/2 acres - $205,000
We've added some photos of the large addition that was finished in April, 2011. The addition enlarges the master bedroom and kitchen and adds a large, glassed open area that increases the pleasures of this beautiful setting. The seller is anxious and will self-finance up to $100,000 for a year. With undulating lawns, special stream-side gardens, and a surrounding forest filled wildlife, this is a wonderful retreat visited by an extraordinary variety of birds.
The large addition projects over a grassy slope to give even better views of the stream, forest, and sylvan landscaping.
This secluded property with multiple water features provides active fun as well as relaxed enjoyment of natural beauty. Kids especially will enjoy the small pool with infinity edge, built-in slide, fountain, a place for jumping from the veranda, and underwater lighting. Everyone will enjoy the the lovely landscaping on a complex hillside that slopes to an encircling stream. And on the other side of the stream is a steep hillside covered by a thick forest that is home to howler monkeys. The owners of this 6-year-old rustic paradise have also created a special shaded quiet area beside the stream with a fountain and two small pools connected by a waterway. This property is the total opposite of city living. The temperate year-round climate also provides relief from the seasonal heat and cold of North America. There's no need for heating or air-conditioning here. The house contains 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. There is also a large carport with a barbeque and party area. Tthere are other excellent building sites on the 1.5 acres. Some basic furnishings and appliances are included in the sale. The property is located near the village of Tierras Morenas about 20 minutes from Tilaran. Only the last couple of hundred yards are unpaved roads.
