Solar powered home with hot water solar system, and city electricity in Playa Pilon, Pavones.
This exceptional estate includes 2 houses with a beautiful pool on 6.17 acres of land surrounded by secondary and primary forest and refreshed by a small river. Situated at 10mn walk from “Playa el Pilon”, a water sport soon to be mecca!
THE MAIN HOUSE 4305 sq ft on two levels, designed and constructed in 2011 by a professional French builder. The structure is very strong made from reinforced concrete, thick walls and double insulation under the roof. Good barrier for the heat, dust, and the bugs. The floors are insulated for damp and noise. They are covered with first quality large tiles Porcelanato. The stiff architectural regulations of Costa Rica have been respected. Knowing that here in the tropics exposed wood is put through a tough challenge with the sun and has a limited life time, wood is used only in places protected from the weather. Drinking water is plentiful and supplied by a bore hole; it is then filtered and sterilized. Two groups of solar panels heat the water needing no electricity. The electric cables supplying the houses with electricity 110v are all underground therefore no visible poles.
The interior of the house is decorated with painted waxed walls. All doors and wood work are made from exotic solid wood creating a friendly environment. All the ceilings have strong wooden beams and are very well insolated. Extensive openings allow the light to pour in.
The first floor consist of:
. 3 big bedrooms with 2 spacious tiled bathrooms, surfaces and wash basins made from natural stone.
. A large functional kitchen with solid wood furniture and granite work surfaces opens on to the dining area. A chimney acts as a cooker hood and adds to the style of the kitchen.
. The living room is open plan with the kitchen, dining room, office and the extensive covered terrace.
From the dining and terrace area one has a view of the sea and the jungle.
. The ground floor includes a laundry room, garage, workshop, covered terrace and a big bedroom with en suite bathroom.
THE COTTAGE 861 sq ft. It is totally independent, perfect for renting or for receiving friends. Consists of: 2 bedrooms, shower room, W.C., office. A kitchen with an American bar (solid wood furniture and granite work surface) opens onto the living room which is overlooking a big covered terrace with an excellent view of the jungle. This recent house dates from 2009 and was constructed following the same rules as the main house.
This estate is located near immense, tranquil, sandy beaches lined with coconut trees. You will be in one of the most beautiful regions of Costa Rica, living in harmony with nature where a magnificent variety of tropical wildlife is part of everyday life.
