For Sale: This Piece of Paradise
The nearly new (move-in was late August of 2009) 2 bed, 2 bath cement block home sits on a secluded plot (2166 sq meters, or about ½ acre) on a very quiet road that actually runs all the way down to the water’s edge of beautiful Lake Arenal. (The water is just 500 meters from the front door).
There are presently no neighbors between this home and the Lake. There is a heavily wooded, deep gully on one side (the Ticos refer to this as a montaña, or a quebrada), with a little stream at the bottom. This ensures a nearly constant, fresh breeze. Water is paid through the end of the year, and currently is only about $72.00 per year, with no meter. The water is cold, and crystal clear, with nothing added. There are two septic systems (aguas negras, for toilets, and gray water, for washer, showers, and sinks).
The house will sell with Kenmore washer and electric dryer, Whirlpool Gas Range,
Maytag refrigerator, and a 2005 Suzuki (pictured below) Grand Vitara, XL7, with current Marchamo and Riteve. Also included will be one queen size bed, with frame and one King size bed, with frame. Additional furnishings are negotiable, including wall-mounted Samsung Plasma TV, Sharp Surround Sound system, and small appliances, including Sharp Microwave.
