In the quaint village of Santa Teresita near the town of Nosara, an unassuming entrance provides access to a long, tree-lined drive, passing a very comfortable one-bedroom guesthouse before reaching its ultimate destination: an exquisitely-designed and built 415 square meter riverside home with picturesque views overlooking colorful gardens and the Rio Nosara.
This Costa Rican-inspired two-bedroom, two-bathroom rancher crafted from concrete and pachote wood thoughtfully incorporates every imaginable detail in its custom design to create a luxurious haven amidst the 44 hectares of natural beauty upon which it sits. Highlights of the home include a spacious master suite walk-in closet, interior dining area for 12, and expansive covered outdoor areas, including a wrap around deck, dining space for 20 overlooking the river and beautiful gardens, and secluded lounge areas on either side of the patio area.
Mature tropical dry forest accented with towering old-growth trees makes up about half of the sprawling estate, which backs on to the Nosara forest reserve and 1.7 kms of frontage on the Nosara River, providing abundant wild life viewings. There is also a 60-year old banana plantation and a recently-planted teak stand. The other half of the ranch consists of income-producing fields which are historically are leased out for rice and cattle farming.
Priced to move, this farm would make an ideal equestrian facility or executive retreat, and also lends itself to subdividing for resale or development. Its unspoiled natural beauty provides absolute tranquility and yet the ranch is conveniently located five minutes from the Nosara airport which services the international airports in both Liberia and San Jose, as well as other tourism centres in the region. The current upgrading of the coastal highway will also make for easier and faster access by car.
