Property Description

This spacious, 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home is in San Francisco near the top of the San Isidro de Grecia ridge at an elevation of 4800 feet. We are approximately 45 minutes from Juan Santamaria International Airport. Daytime temperatures are usually in the 70’s to low 80’s and in the 60’s at night. No heating or air conditioning is needed. This home is in a private and quiet location.

The living, dining, and kitchen areas are of an open design well lit by  an abundance of windows in the daytime and well-placed lighting at night. The kitchen has quartz counter tops with ceramic tile backsplash , native Costa Rican hardwood cabinets, gas cooktop, a waist high built in oven, and large stainless steel sink. There is also a small mural of custom tile on the backsplash behind the cooktop . There is ample counter space and storage space in this well-designed kitchen. In the hall behind the kitchen is a large custom built pantry to match the other cabinets. The kitchen window looks out on to the landscaped garden.

A large – 3 1/2 meters by 3 meters – mural by a local artist adds color and provides a feeling of nature in the home.
Large glass doors lead from the living area to the huge covered patio outside. There is space for a dining area, barbecue grill, and lounge chairs, to enjoy the wonderful climate and beautiful views .

Hot water throughout the house is provided by a solar system with a 300 liter tank and electric backup on those rare days when there is little to no sun. Lighting is largely CFL and LED. There is extensive outside lighting with dusk to dawn LED lighting on the garage and parking area.

On the first level there are 3 bedrooms, one full bath and a “powder room” Bedrooms are good sized, have a ceiling fans and large windows with garden views .

The master bedroom is on the second floor and is large enough to easily accommodate a king sized bed, bedside tables and dressers and an entertainment unit. The large windows provide views of the central valley and the Grecia watershed area. There is a private balcony looking to the west. There is also a walk-in closet.

The master bath has a large shower, hardwood cabinets with granite counter top, and a ceiling fan.

The large garage (450 sq. ft.) has plenty of work space, shelves, a 2500 Liter water tank and pump, as well as room for a car. There is ample off-street parking.

Both the house and the garage are fully alarmed with remotes for the house alarm.

The grounds were professionally designed and feature an irrigation system. Many tropical flowers and fruit trees abound. The entire property is fenced and has several gates for access easy.

This property is near protected areas, thus there is an abundance of birds to be seen, and many places to hike. The location is quiet and tranquil.

One of the best qualities of this property is the neighbors. The property is surrounded by the coffee finca of Fausto Ugalde who has been farming here for 40 or 50 years and whose family constitutes probably no less than 20 percent of San Francisco. In the seven years we have lived here they have been our friends, given us good advice, helped us maintain our property and been a security service.

If you are seeking a beautiful, functional home, with privacy but not isolated, this house is for you!
