Single Family Homes
This villa sits on the highest point possible in all of Atenas, with virtually a 360 degree view. This means the property has spectacular views of the sunrise coming out from behind the Turrialba Volcano (yes, that’s right, direct views of the Turrialba Volcano from Atenas!) and sunset views over the Gulf of Nicoya- impressive! There is one neighboring home lower on the hill, but other than that, there is complete privacy. Moreover, being the highest private home in Atenas, the temperatures are cooler and there is more breeze, making it the perfect weather. A coffee plantation behind the house means beautiful and free hiking opportunities year-round. The property itself has fruit trees such as lemons, limes, oranges, tangerines, mango, banana, figs and even avocado.
The home includes a beautifully landscaped garden, an infinity pool jutting out from the home and spilling out a spectacular view of the Central Valley, which is just as impressive during the day as it is during the night with the glittering lights of the city sparkle, and a heated jacuzzi.
The main bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and a walk-in closet are located on the ground floor, allowing easy access to all social areas like the kitchen, office, and the various terraces. The second level boasts two secondary bedrooms each, with en-suite bathrooms and closets, and each with its own large, private balcony.
Appliances are stainless steel, there is a home-theatre sound system that links to outside terraces, presets for AC, a reserve water tank, an American-style oversized pantry, and a service area.
There is also an extra 60 m2 “casita” for guests, or a rental income opportunity.
There’s an expression in Costa Rica--pura vida--which translates to pure life. It is a catch-all phrase that reflects a kind of eternal optimism and laid-back way of life.
