Welcome to one of Nuevo Arenal’s most elegant homes, located in the prestigious Lake Paradise gated community. This spectacular 3,700 square foot home is everything you would want in a custom home, but so much more.

Situated on just over one-half acre (2,683.11 m2 or 0.66 acre), the estate offers some of the most amazing views of Lake Arenal in the area as well as the lush green hills and mountains of distant Monteverde Rainforest. In this community of approximately eight additional custom homes, this estate stands high above the rest and is easily recognized by its rock walled entry and privacy. The elegant circular driveway of the home is accessible through either one of the two electric gates, and provides abundant parking for guests. Upon entering the home, you are greeted by the overwhelming feeling of comfortable elegance and by the spectacular views. The entry Great Room opens up to a warm dining area and beyond to the gourmet kitchen. Oversized windows on the facing wall allow for views and bathe the rooms in natural sunlight. Adjacent to the dining area is a bar/buffet complete with built-in wine refrigerator for entertaining guests. This custom-built bar/buffet is topped with gorgeous soapstone and is made of solid Guanacaste wood. The quality and details of the custom crafted cabinets, breakfast bar, furniture and doors throughout the estate are magnificent. The kitchen is truly a dream for the pickiest of gourmets. One-of-a-kind high-end granite countertops and backsplash compliment the numerous mission styled cabinets and drawers. There is ample counter workspace as well as top-of-the line stainless convection and microwave ovens, refrigerator and dishwasher. The breakfast bar provides seating for four and would easily double as a serving area for guests. From the Great Room, you access the full length outdoor covered patio through a set of double glass doors. This extra living space is an ideal place from which to view Lake Arenal while having your morning coffee or afternoon cocktails. Custom, easily-maintained tile throughout the home is also found in this large outdoor living space. There is a built-in outdoor sink and BBQ in the center of the patio with lots of room on either side for entertaining or lounging. Rain or shine, this will become one of your favorite places to spend your day.

Across from the kitchen, you will find a large storage closet for household items and a very large walk-in pantry/dry room with shelving and secondary refrigerator. Along this hallway, is an oversized full bathroom complete with a custom walk-in shower. Continuing you will enter the downstairs Master bedroom and bath. The bedroom has a set of double glass doors that provide exceptional views and direct access to the covered patio. The Master bath has double sinks set in granite topped custom cabinets and houses the Master clothes/linen closet. The Master bath shower is simply a work of art with its custom tile work and numerous showering options!

Across from the Master bedroom is an ample laundry room with full-sized washer and dryer and hand-washing sink. This home’s elaborate plumbing and Central Vacuum (Yes – Central Vacuum!) systems are also conveniently housed in this area. Just beyond the Laundry room is the huge tandem garage. The garage was designed and built originally to house a boat and vehicle at the same time, with extra room to spare. The custom tile work seen throughout the home is also throughout the garage and is quite elegant. The extra space the garage provides could be converted into a small bedroom very easily, should that become desirable.

The secondary Master bedroom of the estate is accessed via a small half-stairway just off of the Great Room. This bedroom has an oversized ensuite and private bath with custom walk-in shower, single sink and dressing table, and clothes closet. There are numerous windows providing jungle and Lake Arenal views as well as ample natural lighting and air ventilation. The ensuite area is certainly large enough to be considered a living room and would be an ideal space for a home office or library.

Within the entryway to the garage is a separate stairway leading up to the estate’s private apartment. This apartment also has a separate entry from the home’s main entrance as well as a private balcony, kitchen, living room, bedroom and bath. The elegance found in the main home is mirrored in this lovely apartment. Custom granite countertops and woodwork in the kitchen and bath, custom tile flooring within the living area flowing out to the private balcony, privacy bedroom door, and top-of-the-line appliances are all part of this wonderful apartment.

The estate was carefully designed and built with no detail left out. The exterior of the home and roof were freshly painted two months ago. All exterior windows are recessed to prevent rain/mold buildup and for easier maintenance. Interior windows throughout the home are custom German Tilt & Turn multi-position windows made not only for adjustable air ventilation but provide an extra layer of security in their design. Kitchen and bath countertops are topped with expensive custom granite; corners are rounded for comfort. The Great Room ceiling is of warm, custom wood tung-and-groove design with recessed lighting. Each of the estate’s showers are oversized and inlaid with custom tile design. There are two large hot water heaters for the home – one in the garage and the other in the home. The estate is fitted with an alarm system and security cameras. Additional storage space is built under the half-stairway leading to the secondary Master bedroom. The home has had only one owner, who has meticulously maintained it. To the immediate left of the home is the balance of the estate, which was purchased as a separate lot from the homesite. It is fully fenced and is an ideal area to have a garden or fruit tree forest should you desire.

The gated community of Lake Paradise is conveniently located just off of Hwy. 142, approximately 5 minutes from central Nuevo Arenal, where you will find amenities such as grocery stores, pharmacies, organic fruit and vegetable stores, Banco Nacional, restaurants and local cafes (sodas), live music venues, hardware stores and much more. The tourist town of La Fortuna is an approximate 45 minute drive from the property, and is home to ziplining, water rafting, horseback riding, sloth and butterfly sanctuaries, coffee and chocolate plantations, and numerous restaurants and stores. The area’s main airport is approximately 1.45 minutes away and is home to the Liberia International Airport. Liberia offers residents an an extensive choice of shopping, restaurants and all beach access roads.

The home will be conveyed with all furniture and artwork, fixtures, kitchenware and appliances currently in place, and is the epitome of ‘move-in ready’. This stunning home is difficult to adequately describe just how elegant, warm and beautiful it really is! It is truly one you must see and experience for yourself!
