Location: Santa Cruz, Costa Rica
Blue Water Properties of Costa Rica is proud to present the opportunity to own Casa Ballena in the eco-friendly gated community of Las Ventanas de Playa Grande. This recently completed (2021) private residence is truly unique in the aspect of architecture, materials, and amenities. The construction is smart, solid, sophisticated and energy-efficient.
As you walk through the pivoting, double entry doors, you are immediately awestruck by the detail in the owner’s choice of polished concrete floors, custom pocket doors throughout, floating hardwood cabinetry, quartzite counters, upscale appliances, industrial fans plus a chef’s kitchen designed by a professional chef! Both upper and lower surrounding view decks offer seamless indoor to outdoor living with totally amazing 180º views of the Pacific Ocean and majestic mountains.
Inspired by the owners’ love of whales, this tranquil oasis is an expansive, minimalist contemporary design utilizing the infinity edge pool as the focal point. The residence features a wide-open floor plan which joins two private living areas that are brought together by the huge sun deck and open-air dining space. It’s all absolutely breathtaking in sunshine, rain, day, or night. Sipping your favorite beverage, you will be mesmerized by the sounds of surf, the clicking of hummingbirds, migration of howler monkeys, sights of the milky way, the beauty of breaching whales and the allure of nature.
This home is functionally designed and move-in ready, sold turnkey. But you don’t necessarily need a key—it’s so smart that you can control the doors, lights, air conditioning, ceiling fans, appliances, sunshades and more with your phone or Alexa. $220 HOA fees includes water
