A great deal on a beautiful well-built house overlooking the amazing Playa Los Cedros.
The house has a wonderful indoor/outdoor kitchen and dining area, that’s built with tropical living in mind. More houses should be built this way because it’s the right way to live and enjoy the Costa Rica lifestyle.
Around ten years old, it has mature gardens and a couple dozen mature fruit trees of nearly every tropical variety available. You can’t buy this for any amount of money… it takes years to grow trees like these. So, you’ll be enjoying fresh fruit all year around.
It has a small swimming pool, just the right size for dip, and surrounded by really beautiful gardens. The owner is really into plants so there are probably around 100 varieties of flowers already growing in the yard.
The decor of the house is a bit “out of date” so many potential buyers may want to consider some upgrades. It’s also currently a bit cluttered because the owner has been living in it (and still does) for a long time. When the house is sold, she’ll take everything with her. If you’re considering using it as a vacation rental, that’s a very good idea. This is the type of house that rents easily. But, it will need some investment, perhaps $10K minimum, in upgrades to some tiles and fixtures. But the bones of the house are really great and it will be an easy and fun project to make it renter-ready.
The house sits on a ridge, so it has a nice view of the hills in the back too, not just the gorgeous ocean view. Also in the back is a small caretaker/guard house that could also be converted into a small art studio if you like.
The property has its own well for water.
The house is around 10 minutes drive to Montezuma, but only 2-3 minutes to the beach. It’s located about midway between Montezuma and Cabuya.
As for the price, it’s really very good. The owner has made it clear that she is expecting a full price offer. She has had offers before and will not accept anything less than $289,000, so if you’re interested, she wants you to know that she isn’t negotiating and the price is $289,000.
