The Zen House for Sale in San Ramon Costa Rica

This is a truly lovely, unique and beautiful loft style home with 20+ foot vaulted ceilings.  Marvel at the full wall of windows overlooking an expansive pasture at the front of the home, and the natural light that pours in.  Views of the property, clouds rolling in, birds migrations, and just regular afternoons can be enjoyed from both levels.  The home was carefully designed and constructed using natural materials, a calming color palette, and incorporates several cultural pieces in its construction that bring a unique ‘zen’ presence you will not find in other homes.  On the main floor is the open concept kitchen/dining and living room area that look out onto the  property.  Off the living room is the bedroom and bathroom, then tucked off the kitchen is the laundry/utility room.  Up the stairs to the loft area is a complete customizable space, and another full bathroom.

The Property

5 Acres of lush green fields, tall pine and palm forest, and typical Costa Rican brush that hides some wonderful features of this property that could easily be revived- former horse runs and 2 tilapia ponds.  All this property needs are some stables! Organic kitchen gardens flank the right side of the home, along with an orchid tree, several natural fruit trees and indigenous medicinal plants.  A small river crosses the corner of the property up by the road, which is the border of the property off in the distance.  Other borders are natural.

The Climate

San Ramon is cloud forest territory and this area is a perfect mix of bright sun, then clouds rolling into mist – almost 50/50 each day.  You will see both in the photos.  This allows for a mix of tropical plants and birds that will delight you year round.  Rainy season is from April- October, but expect morning mist and possible storms year round.  Temperatures in this part of San Ramon are quite steady at mid-70s year round.

The Neighborhood

This neighborhood of Zuniga de San Ramon is a mix of everything and everyone, though mostly still Nationals: farmers who have lived here for generations (dairy, coffee, lettuce), and some new blue collar Costa Rican families who are moving into the small developments along the public roads.  Then there are a few expats who love space and quiet, and the ‘almost’ remoteness, yet easy access to San Ramon central.  It is also just about as pretty as you can get with black dirt lettuce fields as you walk, drive or ride your horses around.

The Amenities

The house is just a few minutes from the main road into San Ramon city which has everything from Universities to a major Hospital to the weekend Farmers Market.  Within walking distance there is a local pulperia to get daily staples like fresh bread, eggs, tortillas, cheese, milk and of course beer and coffee.  There is a local elementary school, a Catholic Church at the cruce from the main road, several soccer fields, and a little river park in walking distance from the house.

The Lifestyle

Laidback, farm and horse country, bird watching, writers, kids run and play, close enough to town but far enough away, friends will come visit but won’t stop by all the time, private, cozy, natural, fresh, organic, great for hobbies, pick a project, decent internet believe it or not!, string lights out back with a fire pit and a few guitars with good friends and some neighbors for a BBQ…  don’t forget the Pilsen 😉
