This property is like out of a fairy tale, very seldom do we find a property like this for sale. If you are looking to live in nature, love to have animals or pets and like to pick your own breakfast in your garden, this is the property you have to see.
Beautiful colonial style home of small 3.5 acres of landscaped gardens. Only 10 minutes to downtown Santa Ana or to Escazu, live in the quiet of the Santa Ana mountains but at the same time you can be close to your shopping, the wining and dining and the hospitals.
The one story home was built in 1995 but remodeled and added on by the actual owners in 2006 and 2009. The home offers a very cozy living room with white stuccoed walls and red colonial floor tile throughout, mixed with a conversation pit and views of the beautifully landscaped gardens, you will feel relaxed from the moment you step into the house. The high ceilings give it an even more colonial feel.
To one side of the living room the owners built a kitchen that feels like a sun room as it is surrounded by sliding windows and doors for perfect ventilation and making you feel like you're cooking out in the garden.
To the side of the kitchen is a very nice guest bedroom and a full bathroom is across the hall.
To the other side of the living room are two well sized bedrooms each with its own bathroom and in the middle is a nice and well done guest bathroom. The large master bedroom and bathroom are toward the front of the house.
What was formerly a garage is a separate building and now turned into a recreation room for the kids or an office or library. Behind it is a maid's room, bathroom and laundry room
What was before a small caretaker's home is doubled in size by the owner and turned into a guesthouse of your dreams. Your guests will never leave. Its all on one story, so you can use it also for mom in law or rent it out. This guesthouse offers a large living room - dining room - kitchen (open floor plan), a bedroom and a bathroom.
A large storage shed is tucked behind the main house. Water for irrigation of the whole property is collected from a natural spring just above the property.
The landscaped gardens with all the fruit trees and the natural setting of the surrounding mountains with the views of the other side of the Salitral valley, the rustic colonial home, the guest house and the quiet but perfect location, all this is wrapped up in one word only: PARADISE
The property can be subdivided in two large lots because it has lots of road frontage.
Other features of this property:
* 4 water heaters
* 2,000 liter water tank above the guest house that gravity feeds all buildings

- About this Agent: If you are looking to buy a home in Costa Rica or invest in a condo anywhere in the central Valley, or looking for any property for sale in Escazu, you need to call me. I have been doing real estate in Escazu for over 20 years and can show you hundreds of happy buyers of real estate in Escazu and other areas. To me, a deal is not a good deal unless both buyer and seller are happy.
I was born in Holland (so I’m Dutch) and I came to Costa Rica in 1980 looking for new horizons. I have had many businesses over the years and have found out first hand how difficult it is to learn to adapt to a new country with a different language and a different culture. Of course in the 80’s almost no one spoke any English and even less Dutch, so I had to learn the language as soon and as best as I could. Over the years, I have had several businesses: a window cleaning company, fishing boats, a supply delivery company for beach hotels and a spice wholesale company.
After living a few years in this beautiful country, the real estate deals began coming up. Countrymen and friends of all kinds of nationalities, who were transferred or wanted to leave the country, asked me to take care of their properties or help him sell them.
In 1997, I decided to sell and shut down all my companies and started working full time in real estate and founded GoDutch Realty in the same year. Now, with several offices nationwide, GoDutch realty is one of the largest real estate companies in Costa Rica. This success is based on watching out for our customers, and making sure that all our agents are well trained and offer you the best available service, seriousness and punctuality all clients deserve.
In 1999 I felt that, since we had no MLS here, there was a definite need for real estate agents to work together, so with two other realtor we founded the American European Real estate Group (AE Costa Rica – Easy Properties), which was one of the very first mini MLS in Costa Rica where you can find properties offered by over 50 real estate agents in Costa Rica, all well trained and living up to high standards set by the group.
I am fluent in English, Spanish and Dutch. So give me a call or send me an email if you are looking for a trustworthy real estate agent who is a go-getter and enjoys good people, a serious buyer and finding you the right property.
