Feel the Magic at the Farm of Smiles in Penas Blancas de Cachi (Cartago)
Simple Elegance abounds with this 2 bedroom & 2 bath split bedroom wheelchair accessible home with lush-majestic gardens on 5 acres 2.13 acres (8655 m2). Also two adjoining lots of 5000 meters each are available for sale at this time.
This ranch-style home, built in 2009, has 4400 sq ft under roof which includes 2 patios, and an oversized 1.5 car garage. Rock entrance with sliding iron gate leads to this private setting enhanced by the sound of the rushing crystal clear river just a few yards from this home---easy access to the river for a quick dip too.
Home features an enormous great room with dining area and windows and doors of glass leading to the patios both front and back. High ceilings with really cool iron beams, built-in entertainment center/art gallery & bookcase makes this an in-door paradise, and there is even a nook for a small office in the great room area to keep you in the midst of everything.
There is another office nook with shelving and drawers plus the in-house laundry room with even more storage down the hall from the master suite. Huge master suite on one end of the house and large "grandchildren's” suite (or guest room) on the other end. Each bedroom has an outside entrance through glass and wood accordion doors from the back patio.
The chefs are going to love this large kitchen, with a native rock eat-at-bar for 6 that surrounds one side of the kitchen. You'll find a built in gas cook-top and electric oven, a very generous walk-in pantry, a double sink on one side of the kitchen and a single sink on the other.
This property is gently sloping so it is good for building another house or two, and gardening for flowers or food is easy.
Another plus making this home so appealing is that it is down in a small valley and you truly feel hugged by the tropical greenery that surrounds you. The views are everywhere, in the house or on the patio, of the surrounding mountains, and on the back patio your eyes can feast on the white cliffs with a very high waterfall to your left or the year round river to your right. The solitude is amazing, and yet there are a bus stop and trout restaurant within an 8 minute walk, and a 5 star restaurant within a 25 minute walk.
To see is to appreciate this unique magical setting with home and gently curving river. Come feel the magic and know you've found your slice of Costa Rica paradise.
Would consider selling the house and 2.13 acres (8655 m2) at a lower price. And sell two adjoining lots of 5000 meters each are available for sale at this time for $55,000. each.
