Just reduced from $189,000 to $159,000
Lot size- 961 m2, also includes 1/6 share in 2.142 acre community gardens.
Serenity Garden Home is very unique, there are very few living roof homes in Costa Rica and Saint Michaels has 4 of them. We have another 2 bedroom living roof home at Saint Michaels listed.
The reason there are so few living roof homes is that they are very expensive to build. The house is built tough to last forever with thick concrete walls and a concrete roof. You can maximize the land by growing more vegetables and fruits on your roof. Additionally, the ivy plant and concrete roof with soil really make the home cool, this home is highly efficient. A gray water system takes water from the shower and kitchen and waters the plants outside.
The living area of the home is 60m2 and there is another 40 plus square meters under a roof that could be used as outdoor living areas or built as additional rooms.
The teak wood finishes in the bathroom and kitchen really bring out a natural feel to the home.
A highly efficient air conditioner is barely needed but there is one installed that cools the entire home very fast.
The house is located about 5km down the road going to Puriscal. It takes about 20 minutes to get to Bejuco Beach. You are close enough to the ocean to hear the waves crash in the morning and there are ocean views from the top parts of Saint Michaels Eco Village.
By buying this home you will own a share in a corporation which gives you 100% ownership of the 961m2 lot and a 1/6th share in the community gardens (2.142 acre)
The gardens already have fruit producing and several trees were planted in 2018. There is even a pasture area that could be used for sheep.
