House & Single-family home (For sale)

Reference: EDEN-T64096417 / 64096417
We discovered this property five years ago through a friend who wanted to develop it with us. Debbie and I hiked to the top of it with machetes barefoot - completely oblivious to poisonous snakes and whatever else might have been there. At the top I told her I'd like to have a house here, nestled into the mountains, just miles from the beautiful coastline. The location offers privacy and seclusion while remaining just a short drive from the beach and tourist attractions. This area is renowned for its lush forest, white sandy beaches, great surf, and quaint fishing villages. Whether you're the adventurous type or prefer to relax in the sun there is something here for everyone. Costa Rica constitutes less than 1% of Earth's landmass but it is home to nearly 5% of the planet's biodiversity. That's part of the why we built here, knowing that we share the environment. The really steep terrain was left natural - there are lots of trees from 50 to100 years old. Initially when we built this house there was no water up here, and no electricity. We built the telephone system and got the electrical up and running. As an example, in California you can plan on building a house in January and be lucky to break ground in the same year. Here, I can have a vision of a swimming pool in the morning and we're excavating by noon. Everything I've done in Costa Rica is the kind of thing that comes with years and years of experience and many houses under my belt. Anybody who builds knows that it's nearly impossible to get a group of approved builders, engineers, tractor drivers, plumbers, and electricians. Here we have a very all-inclusive group - a 20-man group of individuals who are passionate about what they do, love what they do, and start every day with a smile. The contractor called me every day, sometimes twice a day in the beta phase, while he was also employed with a Senator. These guys work hard. Anybody knows that to incorporate your dreams and build a house from start to finish, having access to workers - everyone from property attorneys to designers to builders - is key. I have more freedom in this country than I ever imagined. It's one thing to have that freedom, but to also have the ability to accomplish what I envision is incredible.
