Luxury Jungle Home on Private Reserve For Sale! This is the essence of the perfect home in which the natural world is incorporated in every room in combination with exquisite architecture. Nestled below primary forest and completely surrounded by a 3,000+ acre single property with conservation easements and old plantations, the home is very private.
Architecturally the house is simply elegance, made entirely of fine local hardwoods, which give the home a rich, lively feeling. It is described as a tree house, as a mountain home and a beach house all in one. The house was completed in 2007 and was built of several types of the finest local hardwoods. Including 32 8"x8"x8' corteza columns, floors and ceilings of guapinol and a 3,000 square foot deck of nispero chicle. In addition to staff housing, there are 3 buildings - the main house, the spa suite and the office/media room. There are 4 bedrooms each with their own bath, and a half bath off the main living. There is a modern kitchen with all the amenities and an outdoor grill. All the bedrooms have access to the natural world the house inhabits, with doors opening to decks and treetop canopies.
The property offers a variety of amenities for families and adults. Although it is private, it is a short drive to town, grocery stores, restaurants and beaches. Onsite, a lap length swimming pool with great depths for all size children, a full gourmet kitchen, media room and current exercise equipment are all offered.
The property itself is a 15-acre private estate nestled inside a 3,000+ acre family farm raising small herds of cattle, native plantations of teak and various hardwoods like corteza and almendro. The farm also includes several conservation preserves with a 350 acre primary forest preserve directly adjoining the property.
Located 750 feet above and a mile and a half back from the Pacific Ocean, the main house sits atop a jungle ridge with 360 degree views. The 3,200 sq foot deck abuts a primary jungle canopy from which you can hear waves breaking and spot breaching humpback whales in Latin America's first national marine park - Marina Ballena. From this spot one can watch the sunrise over the conservation preserve and allow the famed whale's tail to reveal itself. On the other side of house, views of mountains with densely forested canopies rise from the riverbed valley to 4000 feet. From these mountain tops, the Morete river flows by the property. A walk from the compound through primary and secondary forest leads you to a 50 foot waterfall on this river with natural ponds for swimming and picnicking.
The close connection between the mountains and the ocean allows for the diversity of wildlife enjoyed from the property. From the 3,000 sq. foot deck you can observe breaching whales and both gorgeous sunsets and sunrises. Under the jungle canopy, overlooking Parque Nacional Marino Ballena and surrounded by a wildlife refuge, this property is where luxury, relaxation and jungle meet. This is a naturalist's paradise.
