Las Mareas was constructed by LHC. All woodwork is custom including kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities, doors and windows, lattice detail, and back breezeway screen. Polished concrete floors downstairs & teak floors upstairs. The 2 downstairs bedrooms have AC. The house was designed so that the living area and upstairs sleeping loft are cooled via fans and air circulation - note the lattice screening throughout LR/kitchen and loft. ( However, the lattice can be glassed over if people want to use AC in these areas, an easy and simple process - and in the living area there is wiring run in inanticipation of this scenario in case a AC unit is installed).
Security: The glass doors are made of security glass so that the house does not need bars. ADT monitored security system. Exterior motion sensor lights. Bolted safe.
Kitchen: Custom cabinets, quartz countertops, 5 burner gas cooktop. drawers underneath the stove can be removed and an oven can slipped in to the space (electricity is already installed). Most kitchenware is included.
Furniture: The house comes fully furnished. Bedroom furniture was custom designed and made locally, as was the beautiful Guanacaste wood dining table and benches (seats 10-12). Custom made drapes, bed linens and towels included.
Lot: 707 square meters. There are 4 amazing Pochote trees, 2 beautiful mango trees, as well as other tropical plants that have recently been planted on the property. The lot can accommodate another dwelling, drawings included. There are 3 electric meters in place to support additional buildings.
Other: Outdoor shower. Sleeping loft can accommodate 6 twin beds. In-ground reserve water tank. Whole house water softener/decalcifier. Concrete color was blended in so the house never needs painting. Many of the fixtures (lighting, plumbing, etc), most kitchenware, and linens were brought from the States.
