PROPERTY INFRASTRUCTURE

General:

The property is located about 150 meters from the Pan American Highway in La Garita, an area that National Geographic once proclaimed had one of the four best climates in the world.  The land is a bit over 5,669 meters squared.  (61,003 sz. ft).  There are three houses on the property - the main residence, a two-bedroom one-bathroom house for the caretaker and a two-bedroom two bathroom cottage with a kitchenette located on the end of the swimming pool for guests.  None of the houses can see any other one due to the hill in the center of the property.

There are two pools on the property, a larger pool by the guest cottage, and an exercise pool in the BBQ area.

Security:

The property is completely fenced, and no one from ourside the property can see any of the buildings within the complex.  The main house is fully alarmed.  When people are in residence the alarm is left off, as the property is so difficult to access a break in is unlikely.  When the house is vacant the caretaker turns on the alarm, which if activated can be heard in his house.

The guest cottage also has an internal alarm plus beams across the pool approach which trigger the alarm if crossed.  The external alarm horn would alert the caretaker, and pretty much the rest of the neigbourhood!  The back of the property and the side facing the lower neighbour has a  sheer drop of about 30 feet down a concrete retaining wall.

The solid driveway gate is the only entrance to the property.  It is remote controlled by mobile devices in the cars, or from the house of the caretaker.  A security camera monitors the exterior of the gate.  Each garage in the residence has a separate remove controlled roll up door for access.  In case of rain, it is unnecessary to leave the car before being in the garage.

Water:

There are three water systems.  The water for the automatic sprinkler system located throughout the gardens comes from a stream that runs beside the road.  An annual fee of less than $100 is paid to the municipality for access to it.  There is also municipal water, and a high volume well with pure water used for showers and sinks.  Municipal water goes to the caretaker's house.

Electricity:

There are two electric systems with separate meters. One services the guest house and the caretaker's house, and the other the main residence.  The service has adequate wattage for any reasonable usage.

Communications:

The residence has wireless internet throughout, and Netflix connected through wireless to the bedroom and living room televisions.  There is reliable phone, Skype, fax.  The property has an internal phone system for calling one house or area in the main house from another.

Access:

Once inside the property the driveway forks; One fork goes uphill to the residence; the other goes past the caretaker's house and ends at the guest cottage and main pool.  The caretaker has his own car.

Area:

There is a dance hall and bar 150 meters away, a good restaurant about 100 meters from the property.  A grocery/hardware store is located 100 meteres in the other direction.  The main international airport is 10 minutes away be car, as is the City of Alajuela, the second largest city in the country.  There is a wide selection of services, shopping centres, a hospital, various clinics and so on in Alajuela.  San Jose is about 25 minutes away, and the Pacific beachs about an hour's driving.

Sale price is 790,000 USD completely furnished with two cars. Price is negotiable unfurnished or without vehicles
