Live La Dolce Vita in this spacious One-Level Spanish Hacienda Style home for sale in Santa Ana countryside. You will never get bored of living outdoors with full privacy and looking at the beautiful mountains surrounding this property. A rare find and incredible value in today's market as land prices on the west are skyrocketing! The guesthouse is distant from the main house and it is presently generating income as a rental!
In Costa Rica, a property like this is normally called a Quinta, which is defined as a retreat home outside of the city with large land where families go to relax and rest on the weekends. Quintas in areas like Santa Ana are not easy to find since land prices make it difficult to own enough land to be included in this category. It is normal to do some farming and keep animals in these properties, the new owner of this estate will also inherit an added value consisting of approximately 200 trees between hard wood and fruit trees that were planted around 2008.
Location is very convenient as it is only 5 minutes drive from downtown Santa Ana Central Park by a perfectly paved road. The weather is cooler as it sits higher and closer to the mountain with lots of trees and protected areas nearby. Even though it is so close to the commercial district, it feels distant, rural and peaceful.
The main house bear resemblance to a Spanish Hacienda with lots of charm, warmth and character, nearly impossible to find in today's residential developments.
