https://vivatropical.com/property/listing/748805/ This is an elegant two-story home built in Italian Mediterranean style with concrete block and steel. The home is located in the area of San Salvador de Baru in the Tinamastes valley, with westward-facing, white-water, sunset ocean views of the Pacific and an in-your-face view of the gorgeous Diamante Waterfall, the highest in Costa Rica! The home features high-quality windows and doors. The home is energy efficient with all underground utilities and LED lighting. The home was built with artistic flare and features ” trayed” ceilings throughout. Water is from the local Asada (community water) and there is a German-made electric on-demand (tank-less) system for hot water. The home is adorned with textured porcelain ceramics and lighting imported from Italy. The grounds comprise a full hectare (2.5 acres) of manicured lawn and jungle area. In the trees surrounding the home, you will see a wide variety of wildlife, including monkeys, sloths, and many species of birds. San Salvador de Baru is popular with ex-pats who have created multiple sustainable communities in the area. Each week in the nearby village of Tinamastes, there is an organic farmer’s market where many of those ex-pats sell home-made produce and products. The city of San Isidro de El General, perhaps the fastest-growing in Costa Rica, is only about 30 to 40 minutes away, as is the beach at Playa Dominical.
