Wanderlust Realty is proud to offer for sale one of the most unique properties anywhere on the Guanacaste coastline. Villa Ferrari, as the name suggests, is in a league of its own. A sprawling, private estate perched just 200 meters from the nesting turtles and world-class waves of Playa Ostional. The graceful Villa style architecture allows for flowing indoor/outdoor living from the main home to the poolside entertainment area. Every room and window provides a unique view to the Pacific Ocean and the beach below.
Villa Ferrari is comprised of an 8,000 ft², two story main home with 6 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. Next door to the main home is a stand alone guest cottage with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath with a full kitchen and sitting area. The three car garage is topped with a 2 bedroom apartment with full kitchen and central A/C.
The terraced pool area is an entertainers dream with a 1,300 ft² kidney shaped pool and jacuzzi. The pool bar is housed under a traditional Rancho structure with a BBQ area, wet bar and full bath. The main home and pool area are surrounded by rolling grassy hills that lend themselves to outdoor events or additional construction.
Villa Ferrari sits on 76 acres of land that is mostly wooded with private hiking trails that lead to a small stream and waterfall. The owners are meticulous in their maintanence of the home and property. This estate is perfect for private use, a boutique hotel or an event space for destination weddings.
+ Owner’s Story
When we saw this property the first time, we did not know that the beaches of Ostional had some of the best surf in the country, and maybe in the world. We did not know about the sea turtle nesting ground, just in front of the property, and that we would be able to watch the huge “arribadas” (arrival of the nesting turtles) right from our patio. We also did not know that there was a fast growing community not far away, Nosara.
What we did know was that we found our Adam and Eve paradise, with all its privacy and beauty. All we saw was that beautiful piece of land, with indescribable ocean views, sunsets out of a story book and all the privacy. That is what we were looking for, a life within our own little paradise, which we found within these 75 acres of land.
We built our home in a style so it would fit into its surroundings, a Spanish/Italian type villa, with ocean views from every room in the house. We had the house built solidly, concrete, cinderblock and steel on top of solid rock ( Ostional rock formation). This structure survived the 2012, magnitude 7.6 earth quake without a crack!
We've lived here now for almost 15 years, and had the most wonderful times of our lives. We still enjoy the sunsets every day and listening to the ocean, and yes it is still our little private paradise!
Personal reasons though require from us to spend more time in the US and Europe and it would be difficult to leave a place like this unattended and empty for longer periods of time.
