(Not yet for sale) - Lux 1/1 120m2 *cabina* on 1750m2 of mountaintop at
1000m altitude in western Costa Rica. Perfect, always spring-like climate.
Coffee removed and replaced with multiple tropical fruits and grafted Haas
avocados thriving on manicured terraces sloping down to rain forest. Sits
on huge aquifer generating endless water. Best sunset views in the country
(Pacific Ocean). Separate rancho for witnessing Scarlet Macaw fly-overs and
up to a dozen toucans sitting in the next tree. Double, concrete-block
garage built to same earthquake-resistant standards as house and designed
to be two more bedrooms and bath. Quartzite countertops, marble shower and
coral-rock fireplace. Spanish floor tiles, wood ceiling beams throughout.
The 17th century window 'bars' copied from a cathedral in Nimes, France
were crafted by the same Italian brothers that did these on my first home
here, 'LaQ'. Fifteen running meters of panoramic windows rise up to the
4.5m high ceilings, offering dramatic close-up views of mountains
cascading-to-the-sea. Property located at the end of a dirt road and is
hidden behind block wall for complete privacy (and security). Sat and cable
TV, high-speed internet.
But in the always slow CR real estate market full of such 'trophy
properties', getting $300,000 cash, same as the expected low-bid on the
Iron meteorite Darryl offered for V-Day, would be difficult.
Does anyone know what the Iron brought at last week's Christie's auction?
Saludos a todo.
