Casa Quebrada with its botanical park-like, private setting is a secluded, thoughtfully planned luxury home and hobby farm located on 31 acres of prime Rio General river frontage. Nestled among 3 cascading waterfalls and 2 quebradas/creeks, it boasts an elevated buildable lot with private drive and panoramic views. Additional usable acreage makes the development possibilities endless: family estate, retreat or retirement playground, yoga or nature sanctuary, horse and cattle ranch, B&B or a bio-diverse sustainable living opportunity with excellent water sources, among others.
The luxurious home features 7600 square feet of living space, including 4 bedrooms, office space, and 6 bathrooms. The home itself is thoughtfully placed next to a tranquil quebrada/creek and cascading waterfalls in the middle of approximately 17 acres of gorgeously landscaped green space. Almost every room in the house offers a view of the creek and falls.
The additional 13-acre perimeter includes a stocked Tilapia pond (with fountain) naturally fed by the quebrada, fenced pasture land, and primary forests. In true hacienda style, the property includes a 3,300 square foot, under roof, caretaker\'s casita alongside a completely renovated 5 stall horse stable and gardener\'s shed, each with its own 3/4 bath.
Casa Quebrada\'s first floor boasts a formal living room/atrium with a 25-foot high coffered ceiling and wall of windows capturing the majestic beauty of Cerro Chirripo and plentiful night time star gazing. There is a guest bedroom with en suite bath and a 2nd large bedroom/office also with views of Chirripo, as well as a large formal dining room with coffered ceiling. The spacious, open gourmet kitchen features beautiful slab granite counters, including a breakfast bar with prep sink. New SS appliances and a country cook island make entertaining a delight.
The adjoining family room opens via wall to wall screened sliding doors to a large covered patio, wrap-around porch and cobblestoned paths along the quebrada. Here you can walk through the hacienda-style archway to the 12,000-gallon heated pool with private veranda/cabana. Simply put, this is luxury living at its finest.
Ascend the custom, exotic wood switchback staircase to the lofted 2nd-floor hall with access to a covered balcony with wrap around porch. Enjoy views of the pool, waterfalls and park-like green space. Two Master suites make up the 2nd floor, both with bamboo flooring, en suite 5 piece bathrooms and stunning balcony views. The main Master en suite includes his/hers showers, vanities, and commodes. Attic access, walk-in closets, and multiple outbuildings provide an abundance of secure storage space.
Enjoy daily living on your tranquil, completely private hobby farm by doing as much, or as little, work as you like. Pick the fruits, nuts, and vegetables you grow or tend your hobby coffee plot, horses and cattle, or lease the pastures to neighbors or friends. Hire friendly locals to work maintenance, keep the house or watch over things while you travel.
This property is your new Costa Rican paradise. The entire property is structurally well-built in 2008, intentionally well-placed, and impeccably maintained. The property is helicopter accessible and a 2009 Mitsubishi Montero Sport can be included for a negotiable price.
Casa Quebrada is located in the small village (San Carlos de La Amistad) about 30 minutes south of San Isidro del General/Perez Zeledon, and its airport with easy access via route 2 and two gravel roads. San Carlos is a small coffee and cattle farming community nestled in the mountains of San Isidro at an elevation of 2000 feet. There are numerous nearby waterfall adventures and great hiking. San Isidro offers shopping, a fabulous array of restaurants, and a new Walmart for everything you could previously only get in San Jose and not at the beach. There is also easy access to the unspoiled Southern Pacific beaches like Dominical, Uvita and Ojochal, Marino Ballena National Park, and Chirripo National Park. Manuel Antonio National Park, Costa Rica\'s most popular, is only about 1.5 hours away.
