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

PRICE REDUCED!!! Over 9 Acres of Spectacular Ocean-View Property w/ 3 Top-Notch Houses $599,000 USD



This property is truly one of a kind and needs to be seen in person to be fully appreciated. It’s in the San Pedro neighborhood, which is located only ten minutes West of San Ramon Centro at an elevation of approximately 4,000 feet. This beauty can be your own personal kingdom on top of the world! The 9.08 acres offered consists of a main house that has 2 bedrooms/2.5 baths, two gorgeous rental cabins, and a prime building site that has water and electricity “right there”. A lot of careful thought and personal love has been spent developing this property- it has excellent drainage, 6 electric meters with underground service to each of the three existing homes, and an extensive irrigation system. There are even “pop-up zones” to keep the grass lush and green during the dry season! If you are interested in outdoor games, there is a planted grass area for badminton, volleyball, croquet, bocce ball, horseshoes, etc. The landscaping is simply breathtaking- beautiful tropical gardens and a large variety of young palm trees and ground cover compliment the vast array of fruit trees you will enjoy (orange, lime, grapefruit, pineapple,  avocado and peach!). The owners have planted over 450 trees on land that was formerly used for pasture. These trees are young now, but over time they will reforest the land in a significant way which will open the door for a myriad of native birds to frequent your property. The birds of Costa Rica are one of the many natural beauties here that make you smile on a daily basis 🙂











The main house is two and a half years young and consists of 1,975 sq. feet plus another 745 sq. feet of covered outdoor porches, which yields a grand total of 2,720 sq. feet “under roof”. The floor plan is extremely open and offers tremendous flexibility- the living-room, dining-room, kitchen and office areas all flow into each other smoothly. This same space is also used as a workshop (total of 1,175 sq. feet) and has a separate laundry area. This large & open living area has 3 over-head garage doors, a carport, a large deck, excellent over-head lighting (20-48″ fluorescent fixtures with 3 bulbs each with separate switches to allow for multiple levels of light), and plenty of power otherwise… There are many indoor and outdoor receptacles, 3 separate 220-volt circuits, and both 110 and 12-volt systems with timers for some well-placed outdoor lighting. In addition, the casa has huge sliding windows and 425 glass blocks built into the construction to welcome in the natural sunshine 🙂

There are two cabins:  a one-bedroom (“Willy’s Cabin”) with 498 sq. feet of living space and 504 sq. feet of porch (1,002 total “under roof”), and a two bedroom (“The Palm Cabin”) with 685 sq. feet of living space and 810 sq. feet of porch (1,495 total “under roof). Both cabins are fully furnished with custom-built hardwood (“Balsamo”) cabinets and granite counter tops.  Willy’s cabin has an extra long tub/shower, while the Palm cabin has two walk-in, glass paneled showers.  All the fixtures are American Standard.  The “tablilla” (wood ceilings) are beautifully crafted and finished in marine varnish.  Both cabins have lovely lighting by utilizing low wattage florescent and LED bulbs.  They are tiled in porcelain ceramic tile, have custom-made draperies, excellent storage, huge windows, extra-large decks and great views.  Both cabins (and our home) have tank-less, on-demand propane water heaters, imported from the US, and are highly efficient units.  (As propane is subsidized here, it is much more economical to use propane whenever possible, as opposed to electricity.)







***It’s very important to note that this property is being sold as a “turn-key” operation and includes newer beds, furnishings, etc… A complete list of what exactly is included in the sale can be provided for serious buyers. Each of the three homes have a stand-alone wireless alarm system with keypads and external sirens.

And remember… the building site that is potentially the most prime piece of real estate on the entire property is ready to be developed. Water and electric are there. It’s just waiting for your vision. This property is ideal for an entrepreneur looking to run a small business here in paradise and is also perfect for someone who wants to move some of his or her family and friends here to enjoy Pura Vida with them. When you consider everything that is included in this deal, the price is a steal-

***Price $599,000 USD for over 9 acres of beautiful property, 3 high-quality homes, and all associated furnishings, etc..***
