A Look Inside:Living in San Ramon de Alajuela, Costa Rica and the Central Highlands

Ocean-view 2brdms/2baths TREMENDOUS VALUE $197,500

This beauty is one of those properties that you simply MUST see in person to fully appreciate. Situated on approximately 1.25 acres of prime real estate that beckons to the Gulf of Nicoya and the Pacific Ocean, this gem is priced exceptionally well AND includes all furnishings. The casa is 1330 square feet (total under roof: 2000+ sq feet) and was built in 2008 with the utmost care and attention given to detail, quality and style. Pride of ownership makes itself apparent as soon as you pull in the driveway. Located in the neighborhood of El Empalme, it’s only a 7-10 minute drive from your casa to San Ramon central. Close to the action when you want to be, but blessed to spend most of your time in the peace and quiet of the gentle mountainside.

There is immaculate ceramic tile throughout the house.  The kitchen boasts all new appliances: refrigerator, stove, microwave and dishwasher with a custom pantry wall. Lots of granite counter space and a breakfast bar so the cook can be kept company!  Hot water is available throughout the house.

The master bedroom has a walk-in closet with a safe and the master bathroom has a jacuzzi tub to kick back and relax in. The spare bedroom employs a fantastic use of space through the presence of a “murphy bed”- when you don’t have company, fold the bed up into the cabinetry and use the room as a nice sized office space. Includes a washer and dryer brought over from the US and there is a large pet enclosure area off the laundry room.

For your enjoyment, there is a 300 sq foot glassed in porch fully stocked with exercise equipment, a 150 sq foot open air porch, an indoor garden, and a plumed gas fireplace.  The 265 sq foot garage provides additional storage via an attic enclosure with a pull-down staircase. Property is currently equipped with satellite TV, a fast internet connection and a security system. Real estate taxes for 2011 were a whopping $160.00 USD… Ownership is in a corporation for ease of transfer and includes cell phone. The move to San Ramon couldn’t be any smoother. There is also a vehicle for sale separately, if you’re interested in a one-stop shop.
