This property is as multi-functional as it is gorgeous! Looking for a small cabin in the hills to live out your Costa Rican dream, this is a great option. Looking for a starter home with room to add additional cabins, this is a great option.
This charming 2-story casita sits on a 2.8-acre lot within a gated community. The community is located in Ballena, a gorgeous jungle-covered area between Uvita and Ojochal. The access is 4wd, but the steep parts have been improved and you’re going to love the climate at 700 ft. of elevation, the ocean views, and the daily breezes. To the East, you will enjoy stunning views of the coastal mountains that rise up dramatically. To the South and West, you’ll enjoy window ocean views to the Pacific Ocean (including the Osa Peninsula and Tres Hermanas islands). Add in the lush jungle (think- abundant wildlife), and this "tree house" will make you and your guests feel like you've found the 'real' Costa Rica.
The 2-story construction includes concrete/rebar foundation, termite-treated pine construction (walls/floors/doors), finished with quality lighting, appliances, and furniture. There is a master bedroom and master bath are located on the 1st floor, while the upstairs features an open concept--galley kitchen, pullout sofa for overnight guests, AND an additional loft/bedroom that can also be used for storage. Step outside and you find a large, wood-stained patio and table, plus a bbq grill. THIS is where you’ll spend most of your waking hours… with a book, with friends, or simply with your thoughts while breathing in the fresh air and admiring the view.
There is room to expand on this lot, as the land is flat and build-able. If you REALLY want to expand this property into a functioning B&B, the adjacent lot offers 3.2 acres and a large building pad with a separate entrance. This lot is available for $199,000, but the owner prefers to sell both parcels together and offer a better deal.
The ideal location puts you close to gorgeous beaches like Playa Ballena and Playa Ventanas, clean rivers, and a full array of services in Uvita including grocery stores, medical clinics, banks, restaurants, and more. The bustling town of Ojochal, known for its fantastic international cuisine, is just 5 minutes south. Secure and agreeable location, room to expand on the current rental business, and a great value.
