Location: Perez Zeledon, Costa Rica
This traditional ranch-style home is in the community of Daniel Flores to the south of San Isidro de El General in the beautiful mountainous canton of Perez Zeledon.
The home is a solid concrete block with interior use of brick and wood to give it that homey and very traditional feel. The main home has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths and spacious living, dining, and kitchen areas. There is also a guest house with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath.
There is a large pool and rancho with half-bath for outdoor entertaining. The grounds surrounding the home are immaculately maintained with gorgeous trees, many of which are fruit-bearing. There is very large mangosteen that produces tons of this exotic and very healthy fruit when in season.
The home is super accessible, yet private, and 4x4 is definitely not necessary.
The home is only 15 minutes from downtown San Isidro de El General, the second-largest city outside of the GAM of the central valley (the area that includes San Jose, Alajuela, Heredia, and Cartago). Here you can find anything you need, including great public and private medical care and even a mall with a cinema!.
San Isidro has the largest farmer’s market in the region. Expats at the beach find it necessary to make frequent trips to San Isidro for provisions or services they cannot find at the beach. In short, living within minutes of San Isidro is simply more convenient.
If you want to eat, drink, shop, pay prices, and essentially live like a tico and immerse in authentic tico culture, then a gorgeous home in a mountain area like Daniel Flores could be the right choice for you.
