And many, many more adventures. This sturdy, hand-built and beautiful home is constructed from rare tropical hardwood harvested from mountain farms in the area. It measures 665 square feet, and with the large covered porch, the total footprint is 1000 sq ft. The home interior consists of a large open-air great room, one bath, and a large air-conditioned bedroom. At noon each day a brisk breeze crosses the property from the west keeping the home naturally cool in the afternoons. The home is elevated to keep air circulation moving around the structure during the wet, rainy season. The concrete foundation sits on overbuilt 42 steel pillars set into one meter depth concrete forms. City water feeds a large tower on the north side of the home. Water pressure is fantastic. Excellent WiFi connection speed allows for streaming TV, movies, documentaries, news, sports, work, banking, etc. There are CCTV security cameras and a security system. Annual property tax is running around $130.
The property is very peaceful and private. An 8-1/2 ft decorative concrete wall runs the length of the sides of the lot while the front has a hibiscus privy hedge with a wooden gate entrance. The back of the lot is river front and wetlands. It is truly a bird watcher’s paradise (keep the doors shut or you’ll have hummingbirds in the house). Notable species sharing the lot include motmots, two species of toucans, several species of hummingbirds, herons and raptors. The list goes on and on. Parrots and scarlet macaws are on the property daily. In the mornings the raucous medley of singing birds is incredible.
The most popular and successful wildlife tours in Sierpe and arguably in Osa pass the property’s shoreline in pontoon boats. (Visit Kokopelli’s Facebook page.) It is possible to see squirrel monkeys, howler monkeys, Caymans, crocodiles, raccoons, coatis and anteaters. Large iguanas are all over the place.
The property has an established St. Augustine lawn and many fruit trees including avocados, lemons, limes, oranges, tangerines, cacao, water apples, mamon chinos, coconuts, caimitos, star fruit, almonds, guanabana, guanava, cass, platanos and bananas. There is a covered garage area and storage shed.
The home and property are super well maintained. Maintenance of the house is very easy and there’s nothing that needs to be done except relax and explore. Simple, stunningly beautiful, and comfortable.
Asking price is $129,000 or make an offer. Take advantage of a great opportunity. Also, through the end of the year, I will throw in an almost-new 15 hp Yamaha outboard to get your adventures started. You can rent a boat for the day in the village. I will also throw in a file with dozens upon dozens of my GPS numbers from years of fishing on the Pacific.
