Painstakingly updated to modern standards while maintaining the elegance and charm of the original 1940’s post and beam construction. The 1600 square foot main floor has two bedrooms and two full baths with an office/extra room. The large kitchen (13×14) has terra cotta tile floors and reclaimed cabinets of Sangrio (a deep rich red colored local hard wood similar to cherry). The kitchen centers around a hand carved Teak Island and breakfast bar.
The house is designed to take advantage of the Pacific breeze–you can hear the whisper of the waves from the house. Exotic wood shutters cover most of the external walls, with fans in every room.
The upper living areas of the house are graced with beautiful hardwood floors. The lower level features roomy air-conditioned guest quarters with a large tiled 3/4 bath and walk-in closet. Still underneath and right outside the door is a spacious fully tiled ‘outdoor living room’ reminiscent of a Spanish courtyard. There is 6’5″ headroom underneath the crossbeams. A laundry area, storage closet and secure ‘bodega’ finish out this fully remodeled space. An ornamental ironwork surround finishes out and secures this area nicely.
Originally built by the United Fruit Company to accommodate their upper management, the home sits atop a small hill in the Las Palmas neighborhood, close to town and away from the actual plantations. A five minute walk brings you to the well-maintained community swimming pool. Membership privileges for these facilities cost $10 per month! Modern amenities such as phone, satellite TV, and DSL hook-up are available. A newly installed 900 gallon reserve water tank with a pressurized pump system ensures you will always have plenty of water.
Heat-On-Demand throughout guarantees a good (and hot!) shower.
Nature’s amenities include a variety of fruit and nut trees, innumerable birds (including flocks of parrots) and of course, the beach is only a five minute drive away. Fishing and beach activities in this area are not to be missed. Should you need a change of climate, an hour drive will have you in the cool mountain air.
Puerto Armuelles is a mid-sized town with most things available to meet day-to-day needs including medical, police and municipal services. For other shopping and perhaps a movie and dinner, the province capital of David is a little over an hour away. The Costa Rican border crossing is only a 35 minute drive from the house. It has MANY shops.
