Perfect to enjoy sunny days lazing in the hammock, or take a few steps back when it rains and enjoy cooking a delicious meal with all fresh ingredients in your modern style kitchen. Local farmers markets will provide everything you need, or any of the local supermarkets, mom and pop shops, or road side stands in this friendly tico and gringo town. Atenas is known for its great climate, small village feel, beautiful mountains, and its proximity to the city and beaches. Just 40 minutes from the Capitol and most major corporate centers, private hospitals and International Airport, or head the other direction and be at your first beach area in about the same time frame.
In a safe and quiet, residential neighborhood, come see if this house feels like your new home. Open the doors on either side to let the air and light flow right through. Despite being less than 2 years old, the house is styled like a traditional Spanish Hacienda - open to a small interior courtyard off of which flows the dining and kitchen areas, the living room and main hallway. The bedrooms are tucked away down the hall, and as you walk through, even a layperson will notice how sturdy and exceptionally well built this home is. As you walk through to the back of the home, step down to a nice size enclosed yard with grassy lawn - perfect for lazing and watching the tall trees sway in the breezes overhead. Pura vida.
And note that the 'character' potential of this home has not even been tapped into yet! There is room for fountains, a koi pond, add creeping vine flowers to the beautiful hand wrought iron bars that cover the center courtyard, add more fruit trees to the back yard, or even a small pool. This nice sized lot could be a personal oasis with the house style just a jumping off point. There are custom wood touches through out, lovely hand-painted tiles, and a well thought out layout will make you feel right at home. Even a private office or separate play space to round out the package! Just 3 minutes from the Village by car, or take a nice stroll with the old growth trees just past the property swaying peacefully and high overhead.
