This beautiful property sits on 3.5 acres in a secure, gated community conveniently located in the peaceful community of Platanillo, and is just a few minutes from the highway. It is only 15 minutes from the laid-back beach town of Dominical, and 25 minutes to all the conveniences you need in the towns of Uvita or San Isidro. This furnished home has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, plus an office and a gym, which could both be converted to bedrooms if desired. The open-concept plan flows from the kitchen to the living area and out on to the patio with its gorgeous views - which is where you will probably spend most of your time! The expansive views are stunning, overlooking the jungle valley below and the Pacific Ocean in the distance. Over half the property is professionally landscaped, and its beautiful park-like setting includes walkways, landscape furniture, and even a statue of an angel created by a well-known local artist! The exceptionally large patio and deck has large dance mirrors, and includes a built-in BBQ and outdoor kitchen with sink, fridge, cabinetry, lighting, and ventilated hood fan. The huge pool has an elaborate mood lighting system. The gourmet kitchen is lovely and inviting, and includes high-end stainless steel built-in appliances. The pantry is designed to also be a dry room and safe room. The master bedroom includes a huge window seat to make the most of the beautiful views! The master bathroom has beautiful finishes and includes an oversized Jacuzzi-style bathtub with water jets and lights for the ultimate in relaxation! Enjoy your favorite music on the sound system throughout the patio and pool area, as well as the master bedroom and bathroom! Built with energy efficiency in mind, the home has a solar hot water system (with an electrical backup), an energy-efficient pool pump, and a propane stove, dryer, and BBQ. There is a set up for a generator if so desired. There is air conditioning in the master bedroom, with the ability to add it to the office and guest bedroom. However, the ceiling fans are more than adequate to keep things comfortable thanks to the elevation and cool mountain breezes. A separate bodega provides lots of room for storage or even parking for a quad. High-speed Internet and cable TV are available. Everything was built with careful attention to detail and high-quality North American-style construction. The secure, gated community has an on-site caretaker family that lives near the gate. In addition, the house includes a security system, so you always have peace of mind!
