Home with Panoramic Ocean View - Gated Community
Known as Casa Panoramica, this villa and property is situated on the premier lot in the finest gated community in Southern Costa Rica; Costa Verde Estates (CVE). The highest private elevation on the coast at 2,100 feet, and yet the closest to the breakers at 1 mile, with sweeping 360 degree views from Panama and the Osa Peninsula in the south, to Manuel Antonio and the Nicoya Peninsula to the north, and Mount Chirripo at 12,500 foot elevation behind the property to the east, Casa Panoramica is in a uniquely spectacular location.
Priced to reflect today’s market value, Casa Panoramica is a rare opportunity for the discerning buyer. Already constructed is a 3000 sq. ft. 3 bedroom, 2 baths, 2 kitchen “luxury tree house” perched on a bluff in the front lower section of this expansive site. The lower floor can be used as an independent apartment with its own kitchen and bath, and the entire structure would be converted into an exquisite guest house upon the future completion of the main house.
The large main building site on the highest level is ready for the construction of a large landmark home. The property could accommodate a helicopter landing pad, and with its 5 acres of maximum privacy there is no comparable site. Sitting on a natural peak it is a commanding property worthy of the finest family estate.
The astute buyer will also be enchanted by the exclusivity and security of this gated community with its temperate, fresh mountain air, year round sunsets into the vast ocean horizon 62 miles out, and only a short 15 minute drive to the beaches below. Casa Panoramica offers the best that Costa Verde Estates has to offer.
The buyer can explore the 1,200 acres of forest put into reserve by Costa Verde Estates, and also Casa Panoramica’s private 5 acre retreat with its extensive and well-kept hiking trails and lookouts starting at the doorstep and meandering into exotic jungle ravines. A menagerie of tropical wildlife awaits: toucans, parrots, white-faced monkeys, howler monkeys, jaguarondis, coatis, peccaries, hummingbirds, blue morpho butterflies, and sloths, as well as a huge variety of birds, as the property is located directly on the aviary migratory route. Extraordinary!
Because of the elevation, air conditioning is unnecessary. There are stunning views all around, and the breezes originate from the ocean during the day and from the mountains during the evening. The nightly temperature is 72 degree Fahrenheit, and the daytime temperature hovers around 77 degrees Fahrenheit, all year round. The beach temperatures are typically at least 8-10 degrees warmer and a bit more humid.
Presently Casa Panoramica is being rented on weekly basis to vacationers and the average annual vacation rental income can be conservatively estimated around $30,000 US dollars.
The South Pacific Zone of Costa Rica boasts some of the most pristine and unspoiled beaches in Costa Rica. Enjoy the the warm pacific waters at Ballena National Marine Park, Ventanas Beach or Tortuga Beach. Farther south ofOjochal on the Costanera Sur Highway, is the site of an 18 hole Golf Course and the brand New Hospital located in Cortes. A New airport in the Southern Zone has been approved and sanctioned by the Costa Rican government south of Palmar (Southern Pacific Map).
