Location: Uvita, Costa Rica
Our neighborhood, Bahia Ballena, is famous for its cloud shrouded mountains that drop down to meet the tropical jungles and unspoiled beaches of the Pacific Ocean. The area abounds in properties offering amazing views of the deep blue waters, lush green hills and nightly crimson sunsets - wide, panoramic views stretching for miles and including the world famous ‘Whale Tail’ formation.
One of such places is Bejuco, set high above the town of Uvita. This neighbourhood contains a dozen high end houses, all with breathtaking vistas. An exclusive Bejuco property just came on the market and is presented here.
The house is situated on a prominent hill with an unobstructed 180-degree ocean vista. The spectacular year-round sunsets, jungle and mountain views, and a cooling 24-hour mountain breeze make this location one of the most attractive offers on the market.
The entrance passes through a stylish gate and follows a wide driveway. Access to the house is by the wide door on patio side, and also via a non-standard, double, attached garage. The garage wall from the ocean side is also with windows with view.
The ground floor contains a spacious kitchen with a full range of appliances of the highest quality. All countertops and splash backs are granite and compliment the color and structure of the kitchen cabinets. The large kitchen windows overlook the Pacific Ocean and one of the tropical gardens.
The kitchen seamlessly joins the expansive dinning room which presents the occupants and guests with an amazing view of the ocean through its panoramic windows. The recreation room, across the hall from the kitchen, offers a comfortable relaxation space following a big meal – stylish and comfortable couches face the large windows which share the same ocean view as the kitchen and dining area of the house.
The first floor contains a very spacious living room which holds entrances to the three bedrooms. The view from the living room, surrounded by large balconies, is exceptional and gives the feeling of being suspended over the ocean. When the patio doors are opened, the balconies appear to extend the living room into the sky and provide a perfect way to engage with the natural environment outside – the sounds of tropical birds is constant, and mountain and ocean views, framed by the lush jungles, seem to lie just an arm’s reach away.
The master bedroom and one of the bedrooms share an ocean view, while the third bedroom overlooks the tropical garden.
All furniture has been imported from the United States and it blends seamlessly, in terms of colour and style, with the exposed lumber and wooden parts of the house (such as the staircase and ceiling trim).
The infinity pool, with a jacuzzi the side, is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the views, jungle sounds, good company and sunsets. The large gazebo is complimented by the fact that everything in this property has been designed for complete relaxation and aims to amplify the tropical, living and thriving feeling.
The pool surroundings and the pool itself require a thorough renovation due to a structural error. All costs will be covered by the seller and work will start at the beginning of the dry season (around December-January).
The property also includes a two-bedroom guest house and a spacious studio apartment occupied by the caretaker. They are located below the house, accessible via a separate entrance and gate.
Houses offering such beauty and luxury, view, location, security, and privacy at a very attractive price are few and far in between – this one is as good as gone!
