An added office area, formal dining room, many terraces and eating areas, traditional indoor bar, a central cozy kitchen and family room open up to a large resort-style solar-heated meandering 1340sq. ft. pool that divides into lovely waterways separating private sunbathing areas from the larger front terrace area, an added his and her bathroom with old world tub in an adjoining master bedroom and a large outside covered patio with large BBQ and added outdoor kitchen and billiards room.

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About: Andrew Partain, the estate's adminitrator lives near the estate and is available for a guest's assistance in the home and helpful with coordinating activities throughout Costa Rica. He spent most of his life growing up in Ecuador and Florida and spent 10 years in California prior to moving to Atenas.

                  Why Atenas:
                  After visiting other areas of Costa Rica I later found that Atenas had more peace and tranquility than many other areas and ideal with the ideal cool climate that the area has to offer. No air conditioning or heating needed here. Atenas is more strategically located to enjoy all the things people like to do. There are many exciting places to visit on relatively short trips to the beaches, volcanoes, tropical gardens, zoo, or just having fun exploring town.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Begin each day with the sounds of different birds singing nearby. Enjoy watching them feeding on the property. Relax around the pool or in one of our lounge chairs just relaxing or planning what to do each day. Enjoy seeing the wildlife coming to our wonderfully landscaped gardens throughout the property. Go on some interesting hikes near the property. Be amazed at all the interesting photos you can take to record your perfect visit. Enjoying a cup of the locally grown organic coffee is always a plus.
