This uniquely crafted home is done in an impressive Spanish Colonial architectural style. Guests enter the courtyard through a hand-made gate made from a 200-year-old Cedar tree, to be welcomed by a charming fountain and tropical gardens.
Once inside the home, the attention to detail becomes apparent, as well as the professional decor. The home abounds with natural travertine floors, rich wood furniture, and oil rubbed bronze fixtures.
The home’s staircase is a focal point and is crafted with beautiful Guanacaste wood planks, hand-painted tiles, and wrought iron railings.
The heart of this home is definitely the spacious kitchen and dining area. The kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances, custom cabinets, granite countertops, and an under-mount sink. Whether you are making drinks or cooking a gourmet meal, this kitchen will keep you connected with your guests. The kitchen and dining area flows out to a private backyard.
The spacious master suite is a private getaway in itself. It features a spa-like master bath that has a separate soaker tub, shower, and dual vanity sinks. The bathroom features granite vanities and has walls and showers comprised of hand-painted Spanish tiles. The suite also has a small balcony that overlooks the backyard oasis.
The backyard has additional entertaining space with a covered rancho next to the pool. This space is perfect for entertaining, lounging, or relaxing in either the sun or the shade. The yard is large and has grassy/lawn areas in both the front and back that are ideal for kids or pets. If you like gardening, then this yard offers a ton of space to expand the gardens. This home is all about comfortable living and outdoor entertaining in your own tropical paradise that only Costa Rica can offer.
Whether you are looking to purchase this home to retire, or to use as a vacation home that generates rental income, this home ticks all of the boxes.
The home is constructed in highly insulated panels with an energy efficiency rating of R-22 (nearly 4 times more efficient than a concrete block). Also, high efficiency, inverter technology AC units are used throughout the home, making this an energy-efficient green home.
Other notable features included a 1-1/2 car garage and side drive that is perfect for additional parking or boat storage.
This beautiful home is located in the desirable neighborhood of Surfside Estates, Playa Potrero, and is steps away from the beach (120 meters, to be exact). Playa Potrero is known for its gentle waters and being a pristine beach that the locals adore. This home is also within walking distance to many great restaurants, stores, and entertainment options such as the Costa Rica Sailing Center.
Other close beaches (all within a five-minute drive) include Playa Flamingo, Playa La Penca, Playa Prieta, and Playa Pan de Azúcar.
From an investment perspective, Casa Coronado is excellent because of its proximity to the beach (Playa Potrero) and the new $50M Flamingo Marina that is in the same bay as Playa Potrero. This new, high-end marina is scheduled to be finished in 2024, and it will have more than 170 boat slips (including boat slips of over 100 feet or more), a 5-star hotel, a small convention center, restaurants, and retail.
Potrero is located within a 15-minute drive to two of the most prestigious private schools in Guanacaste, La Paz, and The Costa Rica International Academy (“CRIA”).
