Atenas house description

This spectacular 20 acre property is just minutes away from downtown Atenas. You can easily walk there. It features a gorgeous home on 20 acres of private land with lush tropical gardens, orchards, streams and breath taking views. You can pick bananas by the swimming pool, caimoto by the front gate, mangoes along the drive and oranges, lemons, water apple, papaya and cashews in the orchard. From the verandas and other magical spots on the property there are views towards Poas volcano and the Central Valley. There are plenty of interesting walks in the neighborhood but just walking the property itself is an adventure and meditation is a tropical paradise.
The three bedroom main residence features vaulted ceilings, hand crafted hardwood windows, ceilings and doors. Huge wrap around verandas, totally private swimming pool and all modern conveniences. Internet, satellite TV provided.

                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About: My name is Tonia and I am Belgian. I have been living in the US for 28 years but am a world traveler at heart. My quinta in CR is my home away from home.

                  Why Atenas:
                  Initially I thought living on the Pacific Ocean was what I wanted. However, it is too humid for me there. Living in the mountains, especially Atenas offers the ultimate climate for me: warm and comfortable during the day and cool at night. Buying this property as a bare piece of land and developing it with my heart and soul has taught me life lessons. This property was an expression of my dream to live peacefully, surrounded by nature, in a house that has soul and is a reflection of me. I like privacy, yet like to be close to town. This property makes me happy.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Unique in Atenas: spectacular home on a giant piece of landscaped tropical paradise with incredible views, Complete privacy and varied terrain. Tranquility and the endless beauty of the property. You can drive to town in a matter of minutes but we think you would rather walk and enjoy the local atmosphere. The complete privacy does not mean you have to go far for amenities: two local restaurants are within minutes' walk. What you will most appreciate is the peace, natural beauty, lush gardens, fresh air and comfortable home.
