Whether you are inside or outside the home, the spectacular views of the majestic Diamante Waterfall will blow you away. Towering at over 600′, the Diamante Waterfall is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in all of Costa Rica. You can literally feel the energy of the falls, especially after a healthy rain where the sound of the falls carries across the valley towards the home. You will be able to view the Diamante from the gardens, the covered patio, the guest bedroom, and throughout the living room. You will find yourself absolutely mesmerized by it but this property offers much more than that.
The Spanish style home is perched high on the mountains where it receives both sunlight and the natural cooling from the forest mist. The property is privately located in the small town of San Salvador, neighboring the community of Tinamastes. The home was tastefully designed and built with unique touches such as terracotta roofing, Spanish tiles, Italian tiled floors, vaulted ceilings and custom woodwork. These special touches give this two bedroom, two bathroom home a unique quality unlike any other in the area.
Open Floor Plan with Ample Natural Light and Covered Outdoor Lounge Areas
An open floor plan with large windows and skylights allow natural light to fill the home while taking advantage of the spectacular views from around the home. The comfortable master bedroom features glass doors that serve as a window to the Pacific Ocean view and provides direct access to the covered patio. The master bathroom is beautifully finished with marble and includes a luxurious 2 person jacuzzi and shower. The guest room features a beautiful view looking straight out onto the Diamante Waterfall and it also has a private sliding glass door leading to a covered outdoor seating area. The bedrooms are located on either side of the house are separated by the living and dining room areas. A full kitchen located just off of the dining room includes top and bottom wooden cabinets, solid granite countertops, and a laundry room with a pantry.
Living in Costa Rica, you will spend an equal amount of time, if not more, enjoying the outdoor spaces. A large covered patio wraps around the living spaces and it is the perfect place to enjoy the perfect climate, the wildlife, and the beautiful mountain setting. During the end of our visit, we witnessed an anteater lazily wander across the lawn in front of us. According to the owners, other common wildlife sightings include deer, sloths, monkeys on occasion, and a wide array of colorful birds.
Lush Landscaped Gardens, Greenhouse, and Additional Space to Build
The grounds on the property feel like you are taking a tour of the Garden of Eden. Rolling green lawns, towering trees, vibrantly colored plants, gorgeous views out to the Pacific, lush rainforest areas bordering a river, and the land is rich with fruit trees. Planted throughout the 4.94-acre property are mamon chinos, oranges, grapefruit, bananas, mangos, mangosteen and so much more. Located on the edge of the property is a greenhouse for growing herbs and vegetables. For those with a green thumb, or are into living a healthy lifestyle, it does not get much better than this.
The property also includes three additional building sites. If you wanted to build another home for guests or to produce an additional income from rentals, you could easily do so with these home sites. The additional homesites and the greenhouse can be accessed through its own road below, so the main home will retain its privacy. Whatever you wish to do, this property will provide you options to work with.
