This lovely home is on a self-contained acre which is bordered on two sides by tall old growth trees and a running river 15 ft. below which adds lots of good vibes. There is nothing more pleasant than listening to relaxing river sounds, especially with the bordering trees rustling in the breeze. The patio/terrace overlooks a small river (10 to 20 feet wide) that flows through the property. There are often cookouts on the large tile-floored patio which everybody enjoys as it becomes the focal point of visits. Wide steps from the patio upward lead to the house entrance and large wrap around covered porch which extends all the way around the house. The front of the house faces a protected forested area along the edge of the lake. The current gated driveway to the home meanders past a secure concrete storage bodega, onto a parking area large enough for many guests’ cars.

The house has two bedrooms and two colorful, full bathrooms, with both bathtubs and showers. The open concept living room, dining room, kitchen makes it feel more spacious. The spacious kitchen has granite counter tops. Sliding glass doors open facing the river from the living room and lots of time is spent outdoors on the large roof covered porch. The landscaping is well maintained and a pleasure to see with its cleverly terraced gardens stepping down to the patio increasing the overall charm of this home.

It is conveniently located just off the main lake road about 7 km. From Nuevo Arenal center with its many services and stores. This lake road is traveled on by 50% of all tourists in Costa Rica so a great location for rental cabinas or a B&B. This would also be possible if you buy the adjacent parcel of 7100 m2 (about 1 ¾ acres) with the higher part giving a lake view. This property also borders the lake road. With a large portion of the property just off the road which means you could add separate entrances to different sections. It has two older casita-style buildings which could be converted to cabinas or adjacent storage for newer cabinas. This property has excellent water from a spring on the lot.


No amenities.
