Finca Perla is more than a name – this exceptional property is a true PEARL among gated community developments throughout the tropical Bahia Ballena region. This community prides itself for a PERFECT location, snuggled in the rainforest covered hills between the towns of Ojochal and Uvita: peace and quiet, security, permeating nature, a river and waterfall, breathtaking views, proximity to beaches and tourist attraction…but also just a short hop away from the comfort of all the amenities you will ever need!
The community is located approximately four minutes’ drive away from the coastal highway, mostly along a well-maintained flat access road – so unlike many other local properties, you will not need a 4WD to get there. And as a bonus, the short access trip is spectacular: parts of the road reveal beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean. The property is located approximately 2 kms drive from the main community gate, and itself boasts a stylish wooden automatic entrance gate.
Immediately after crossing the entrance gate you find yourself in an oasis of greenery speckled with towering jungle trees – a sanctuary for countless birds and animals. In fact the community has a large, registered and protected ‘green zone’ with one share allotted per each lot. Large areas of this protected jungle (as well as the property) attract the types of animals Costa Rica is famous for: many types of monkeys, agouti, pizotes, sloths, as well as all countless species of birds such as scarlet macaws, parrots, hummingbirds, and toucans – they will be your new neighbors. Majestic blue morpho butterflies will splash their electric blue across the property multiple times per day. The sounds and sights of the jungle are a 24/7 feature of this wonderful property and the surrounding area.
The 7 acre plot is bordered on two sides by stream which presents a waterfall at the front of the property. The property includes a 2-bedroom main house, 2-bedroom lower house, and a large 1-bedroom studio apartment / guest house. And if that wasn’t enough: located at the entrance to the property is a sub-dividable building site suitable for building an additional guest house, cabins, or many other structures that enrich the experience such as a yoga deck – or it can be put up for sale.
The contemporary styled concrete and glass house maximizes the ocean and jungle views that surround the property. To further emphasize the focus on the spectacular surrounds, a large ocean-facing deck offers an incredible view of the Pacific: the white waters, ‘Three Sisters’ islands formation, Ballena Island, and nightly crimson sunsets are just a glance away. This wonderful deck is an extension of the open concept living room and kitchen, making you feel fully connected to the spectacular views and the buzzing jungle energy, regardless of whether you are relaxing in the lounge or chopping onions for your morning omelets!
The huge, spacious kitchen presents granite countertops which match the through-out living room marble floor. With an open-concept design the kitchen/living room space feels airy, light and expansive. Operable glass walls give access to the deck and the beauty and nature that await just an arm’s reach away.
Two rooms, with external glass walls, have their private decks. External walls in the master bedroom (just like the living room) have operable glass panels which reveal lush jungle views and upon opening connect the room to the sounds of the forest and ever flowing wild jungle energy.
The house does not have a pool but includes two flat sections where a pool or jacuzzi could be constructed.
The Lower House, just a few steps away from the main house, was originally designed as a spa. Now it can be treated as a 2-bedroom self-contained suite with an option to option for a kitchenette. It can also fit the role of an office, tourist rental, long term rental, an art studio, or a spa. Giant skylights with new seamless EPDM roofing flood the rooms with sunlight, the blue sky and the green of the rainforest during the day, while at night the starry sky sparkles above. The marble floor covers the entire house and each room has its private deck.
Discrete distance from the main house and lower house, close to the property gate, you will also find a spacious 1 bedroom bachelor/studio apartment/suite. Turn key, fully furnished, with a granite countertop kitchen, this house is perfect for a caretaker suite or an income producing rental unit. A large deck brings the sights and sounds of nature into the house and is perfect for rocking back and relaxing in the ever-present tranquility of nature.
A covered three-car parking lot sits directly on the top of the guest house. There are mature, tropical fruit trees on the property – and plenty of space to add additional exotic tropical fruit trees, a veggie patch, or a medicinal or ornamental garden. And another bonus – the fresh sea breezes bring relief during the hot summer days, and when the sea breeze is not blowing – the mountain breeze is sure to take over!
The main house and lower house are fully finished but are not furnished and they need some attention to details. The property has the potential to become a luxury residence or family compound with 100% privacy, wild jungle surrounds, security, and GREAT rental income potential. With the possibility of constructing a number of cabins, it can also be an ideal place for a yoga/nature retreat or a permaculture village – or you can use that space to put up a yoga platform, gym, a large pool, jacuzzi, nature/astronomy observation deck…you are only limited by your imagination!
There is a fiber optic internet and community water system is approved by AYA. This amazing and unique property is ready to show anytime – don’t miss out!
