If you are looking for a home with higher altitude, a big open view, outdoor living space, a pool and a setup for guests or clients, take a look at this one.
The home is a “duplex” such that as you enter from the front, you can go left into a 3 bedroom home or right into a 1 bedroom home. Both are fully set up with kitchens, bathrooms and living areas. Both homes transition onto a shared patio, beautifully tiled pool, and a vast view of the Talamanca mountains.
The design lends itself to creative options. The current owners have hosted individualized “retreats” for clients. The owners stay in the smaller home and the clients in the larger. It would also be possible to stay in one and use the other for a B&B, with a combination of full privacy and shared space. If you need a place for senior family members, they could live independently but close in one or the other of the homes.
Access is easy from central Platanillo, and entrance is through a protective gate. The grounds are beautifully kept and feature mature fruit trees. Pick your produce as you walk. On the right side is a lot that is unusable, providing some space from the neighbors. On the other hand, the home is in a community of friendly people, both Tico and foreign in an enjoyable mix.
The home has been well-maintained and has an old-world charm throughout. It is well worth a look for someone who wants to be higher up but still just 15 minutes from Dominical beach.
