San Ramon is one of the largest cities in Alajuela, and it is growing. But for most of us it will still seem like a big town. Set on a grid system, with a central park and large Stone Church, mom and pop stores selling just about everything you could want or possibly need, high-class healthcare and lively communities of expats and nationals all mixed together, you will find it hard to complain about the amenities or the neighbors. Most buildings here are one story, including the large hospital in town, with a handful of private businesses rising up to 2 and 3 levels closer to the center. Like any city, as you head further away from the center there are fewer shops and more homes, less traffic and more parking spaces, fewer people and more room to walk on the sidewalk. It is on these outer streets that this lovely, older, tico style home is located - with all the charm and space of a Spanish house that was built years ago.
A single story house, all concrete built, with skylights in every room - you won’t even know that the lights are turned off until late afternoon when the sun starts to set or the clouds roll in during the rainy season. I have been told a second story could be built on top if someone chose to expand or create an investment property with 2 separate rentals. The views would be amazing. Entry to the property is through a small gate on the street, then down a private alley shared by 2 other homes. Enter yours through another lovely gate, and the house is room after room of living space, both indoors and out. A separate office/room has its own entry up front. Then the main house has 2 even sized bedrooms, 2 living rooms, dining room, kitchen, play and wash space. AND a backyard with bananas, oranges, and lemons, plus little outdoor BBQ kitchen (very rustic!).
Park on street, or make a deal with one of the surrounding lots if you want a car. Or walk around town and take the local buses. Perfect central location. without being near the noise and markets. Best grocery store in town in 2 blocks away, and on the street is a small convenience store, a Salon Spa, Shoe Repair shop, and the rest are private homes. Farmer's market is 5 blocks away, and the local organic indoor market is just 1 block over. Come see this little slice of Paradise Today!
